Why is this benchmark important
Why is this benchmark important? in Small Water Clusters: Benchmarks Approaching the Complete Basis Set Limit

  • Small water clusters are implicated in several contemporary problems:

    • DFT is the most popular theory in electronic structure calculation.

    • Water clusters are hold together by H bonds and H bonds are crucial in innumerous systems.

    • Understanding of bulk water and ice properties.

    • Formation of acid rain.

    • Anomalous absorption of sunlight by clouds.

    • Nucleation of water droplets.


To choose reliable reference
To choose reliable reference in Small Water Clusters: Benchmarks Approaching the Complete Basis Set Limit

  • Dissociation energy of water dimer by experiment:

    216.8 +/- 30 meV.

    • 30 meV is ~15% of total dissociation energy.

  • Experimental Dissociation energies of other small clusters are not available.

  • CCSD(T), regarded as the most accurate ab-initio electronic structure theory.

    • Best dimer dissociation energy: 217.6 +/- 2 meV.

    • Expensive, scales as N7 (N=number of basis functions).

  • MP2, less expensive (N5) works very well here.

    • Dimer dissociation energy : 215.8+/- 3 meV.

    • For other clusters, MP2 remains always within 3meV

      of CCSD(T).


  • Benchmark reference mp2

    • Gaussian-type localized orbitals.

    • Dunning’s correlation consistent basis sets i.e. aug-cc-pVTZ, aug-cc-pVQZ, aug-cc-pV5Z.

    • Extrapolated to Complete Basis Set (CBS) limit.

    How good are the geometries
    How good are the geometries? in Small Water Clusters: Benchmarks Approaching the Complete Basis Set Limit

    • We have compared various bond lengths and angles of the geometries, all optimized with an aug-cc-pVTZ basis set.

    • All results are quite satisfactory.

    • X3LYP perform best among all.


    Summary of 1 st part
    Summary of 1 in Small Water Clusters: Benchmarks Approaching the Complete Basis Set Limitst part

    • Hybrid X3LYP and PBE0 perform the best for the energetics of the H bonds considered here, always being within 10 meV/H bond of MP2.

    • Among the pure GGAs considered mPWLYP and PBE1W perform the best.

    • PBE and PW91 differ by ~12-14 meV/H bond.

    • Variable performances with cluster size lead us to conclude the dimer or trimer is not sufficient to give the general abilities of the functional.

    • All functionals achieve chemical accuracy (1kcal/mol ~ 43 meV).

    Issue of global minimum
    Issue of Global Minimum in Small Water Clusters: Benchmarks Approaching the Complete Basis Set Limit

    • All the wave-functional based methods like MP2 and CCSD(T) show “prism” as the lowest energy structure.

    • Best of the DFT xc functionals for water fail to capture that.
