Molecular forces, geometries, and frequencies by systematic molecular fragmentation including embedded charges.


The accuracy of energies, energy gradients, and hessians evaluated by systematic molecular fragmentation is examined for a wide range of neutral molecules, zwitterions, and ions. A protocol is established that may employ embedded charges in conjunction with fragmentation to provide accurate evaluation of minimum energy geometries and vibrational frequencies in an automated procedure.
