8.16.8 The Karlsruhe “def2” ECP at a Glance

(May 16, 2021)

For elements Rb–Rn, all the Karlsruhe “def2” basis sets are paired with a common set of ECPs. 1154 Weigend F., Ahlrichs R.
Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys.
(2005), 7, pp. 3297.
It is briefly summarized in the table below (the number of valence basis functions depend on the basis set in use, so it is not presented):

Element Core Max Projector
H–Kr none none
Rb–Xe [Ar]+3d D
Cs–La [Kr]+4d D
Hf–Rn [Kr]+4d+4f D
