Re^3: scf problem

David G.

Also we have examined the same structure using Gaussian with the following commands and the scf surprisingly converged just in 66 steps.

#p b3lyp/gen scf=(maxcycle=250,conver=5) pseudo=read

O H C 0
Co 0

Co 0

any comment to solve this issue using FF ?

>In practice we tried different multiplicities for this system which is neutral. Making it positive is just to get a guess for the wave-function. As you proposed we can passivate the dangling cites but in fact the system is a monomer so we would like to study the electronic structure of the real system at first.
