Dear Siddheshwar,

6-31G is not available for Sn. The Basis Sets chapter in the manual has an overview of which sets are available for which elements.

If you prefer to use a build-in set, one possibility would be to use the Hay/Wadt valence basis and ECP. For this, specify:


An alternative is the SBKJC set (replace HW with SBKJC in the above input code).

Kind regards,
