Dear All
I want to use TZ (Dunning) whose name is found in the following site.
http://www.nwchem-sw.org/index.php/Release66:AvailableBasisSets

Then, I specified this basis function as:
BASIS
 * library TZ (Dunning)
END

This job brought the following error massage.



bas_tag_lib: tag does not refer to an atom        0
------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is an error in the input file
------------------------------------------------------------------------

How should I specify TZ (Dunning) ?

p.s
input file

Enclose the basis set name in quotes, i.e. change

  • library TZ (Dunning)

to

  • library "TZ (Dunning)"

Thanks, but expression "TZ (Dunning)" also gave the same error.

A member in my company has found that the correct expression is TZ_(Dunning) . Then , my present problem has been resolved. But, where can we know correct expressions for basis functions?

Which version of the code are you using? The syntax

  • library "TZ (Dunning)"

should be valid (works without issue for me with NWChem v6.6). In general, any name on the page you referenced before should work when enclosed in quotes. It appears that without quotes, the name will also be recognized if spaces are replaced with underscores, as you have reported worked for TZ_(Dunning). If you have problems with calling the basis set by name (or would like to use a basis set that happens not to be in the internal library), you can always specify the basis set explicitly. These can be obtained for instance from the EMSL basis set exchange (https://bse.pnl.gov/bse/portal). For a system containing hydrogen and carbon and using the TZ (Dunning) basis set, this would look like
