Parameter set "trans3d-0-1"

The set has been developed for organic molecules including O, N, C, H with first row transition metal elements Sc, Ti, Fe, Co, and Ni. Tests for molecules containing atomic pairs between H/C/N/O and Sc/Ti/Fe/Co/Ni are published in  [JCTC07].

The current parameters works quite well for geometries, for which the bond length usualy differ from B3LYP/SDD+6-31G* at the accuracy level of 0.06A-0.1A on average while the bond angle differ by about 10-20 degree. The energetics differ about 15 kcal/mol. The spin splitting energy is often qualitatively correct by the absolute value can be off by as large as 30-50 kcal/mol. In general, the energetics predicted with this set has to be taken with causion and needs more thorough tests for molecules that contain these parameterized transition metal elements.
