Calculation of chemical reaction energies using the AM05 density functional [article]

Richard P. Muller, Ann E. Mattsson, Curtis L. Janssen
2009 arXiv   pre-print
We present results that compare the accuracy of the AM05 density functional to a set of chemical reaction energies.  ...  Our results show that, in general, the AM05 functional performs nearly as well as the other "pure" density functionals, but none of these perform as well as the hybrid B3LYP functional.  ...  We then compute a wide range of chemical reaction energies using the total energies from these calculations. Our results suggest that, although none of the pure density functionals (i.e.  ...
