我只是邮件搬运工。。。


The main new features are
- multipole electrostatics
- removal of all classical corrections as well as special pair
potentials/parameters,
   . i.e., its less empirical
- ATM dispersion term
- atom specific CN dependent level shift and one-center XC-anisotropy term
- much better parameterization (more reference systems, better frequency
fit)
What is still missing (but likely will have only a small effect at this
accuracy level)
is the D4 instead of D3 dispersion model which will be implemented
soon. We are also working on the GFN2 paper but this may take some weeks.

Many properties and problems have been improved or solved compared
to GFN1. Most notably are non-covalent interactions and conformational
energies improved
and most metals are described more consistently. However, there are
of course also drawbacks and on the downside we note sometimes less
stable SCF
convergence behavior. Both, this and the higher accuracy is related to
the short range part of the
multipole electrostatics. In non-convergent-SCF cases GFN1 is still
available as fall-back option.

The new method is on average only insignificantly slower than GFN1 (even
faster for systems with many hydrogens) and we think that GFN2-xTB
offers an extremely good cost/performance ratio often reaching
DFT-D3 accuracy for the target properties. All non-covalent interactions
are now exceptionally good including water, and halogen or pnicogen
interactions.
Additionally some typical thermochemistry properties are described better
(without fitting them!) which will be discussed in detail in the
forthcoming paper.
In summary I don't see much room for further general improvement at this
high-speed QM level.

To run GFN2 just copy the parameter file .param_gfn2.xtb
to the xtb path and set the default in the .xtbrc file
(line two). GFN1 is still available by the flag -gfn1
(or setting the default of variable gfnver to 1).

Important note: the parameters are preliminary, i.e.,
it make little sense to start big projects @GFN2 until
we got feedback and may be change a few details
(which is more likely to happen for heavier, "uncommon" elements
than for HBCNOFCl.. for which the present parameters
are probably the final ones). In addition we're right now
re-adjusting the GBSA parameters to GFN2. The present GFN1
GBSA parameters can be used, however, without
much loss of accuracy.

Please report any problems, bugs, or bad cases
but we're also thankful for success stories
(Christoph Bannwarth and I invested some time into all this and
if was often but not always fun ...).
Those of you who sent me GFN1 outliers (thanks again!)
may check if they are now qualitatively ok with GFN2 or
at least have improved.

最近Grimme动作很频繁
Dear xtb users,
below you can find a link to the second preliminary test version
of the code implementing GFN2-xTB, an improved version of the GFN-xTB
method. The changes with respect to the previous test version are
- re-fit of all elements except HCNO (though with mostly small
parameter changes)
- D4 instead of D3 dispersion
This release is supposed to be close to the final version.
To run GFN2 just copy the parameter file .param_gfn2.xtb
to the xtb path and set the default in the .xtbrc file
(line two, already set properly to the latest version).
Please report any problems, bugs, or bad cases to me.

最近一直在用GFN2-XTB,simulated annealing找conformer确实给力。 但是似乎GBSA水环境优化带水壳的分子系统还是有问题(详细见社长的帖子:http://bbs.keinsci.com/thread-9129-1-1.html)等我有空写信给Grimme反映一下。

Dear xtb users,
below you can find the download link to the latest GFN2-xTB test version.
This version contains new parameters for all elements as well as
a few bug fixes. The D4 dispersion correction is now fully (and
correctly) included and operational. The main change to the
last version is an increased H0 flexibility by l-dependent KCN
parameters and hand-adjusted (smaller) AO exponents for H and
C giving better Pauli repulsion. I hope that this was the
last bigger change and that this version will be the finally
published one. What is still missing is the re-fit of the
GBSA solvation model for GFN2 (although the GBSA
files for GFN1 can actually be used for GFN2 as well).

Dear xtb users,
during the last months we worked on the GFN2 paper (appearing soon on Chemarxiv),
removed some very small bugs and slightly revised (triggered
by user input) the GFN2 parameters for Se and I.
See file REVISION for details.
We also had to revise the scripts and programs for the automated NMR spectra
calculation. This will be finished soon and announced through this user list.
To download the current version just use the link below.

最近尝试用GFN2-xTB跑分子动力学(用DFT很难算动),发现虽然在特定结构上的单点能精度不错,跑出来的轨迹行为还是和DFT相差不少的。此外GFN2-xTB会破坏甲醇的氢键网络(甲醇分子构成的团簇全都跑散掉了),类似的还会显著低估DMSO团簇的密度,总之感觉并没有想象的那么美好。

估计训练集不够吧,另外之前Sob社长提到的问题,即gbsa水环境下优化水团簇的问题,也没完全解决。

楼主好。我最近刚开始使用xtb, 还不是很熟悉怎么使用。现在只会一些比较简单的,比如优化或者社长在博文里演示过的。 看到您说可以做simulated annealing 来实现conformer search,所以斗胆问您一句,可以让我看一下您那一部分的命令吗?是通过在xyz的文件末尾加入一些命令($set … siman … $end)实现的,是吗?但是我看新版的manual里,可选的的命令很少,所以不太清楚该如何组织。我用那有限的命令运行了几次,总是一秒钟就normal termination,有点懵。我对程序的语言不是很会,还请多多指教。或者您给我指一条路,我自己去看也好。不胜感激!
