TURBOMOLE Release Notes

TURBOMOLE Version 7.3 (July 2018)

New features:

  • PNO-CCSD(T0) and PNO-CCSD(T) energies for closed-shell systems [1] 
  • new DFT-D4 dispersion correction based on xTB [2] 
  • modernized NMR (with RI-J, COSMO, meta-GGAs, low-order scaling HF-exchange, SMP parallelization) [3] 
  • VCD spectra using COSMO
  • periodic DFT with larger basis sets (treatment of linear dependency)
  • two-photon absorption cross sections and analytic frequency-dependent hyperpolarizabilities with TDDFT/TDHF [4]
  • X2C gradients for 1- and 2-component DFT, full X2C and DLU-X2C [5]
  • vibronic absorption/emission spectra (new module: radless) [6]
  • CC2 vertical excited states with COSMO [7]
  • NTO (natural transition orbitals) for TDDFT
  • RI-GW based on dRPA (very fast GW and BSE) [8]


  • GW and Bethe-Salpeter based on fast dRPA 
  • support of RI-J and linear scaling HF exchange in NMR calculations
  • PNO-MP2 closed shell energy calculations significantly more efficient


  • new scripts for parallel execution which recognize the most frequently used queuing systems
  • TmoleX 4.4 now supports
    • DFT-D4 dispersion correction
    • X2C relativistic two-component treatment for spin-orbit coupling terms, and new X2C basis sets
    • Fukui indices and functions (calculation and visualization)
    • movie exports to mp4 files
    • B97-3c functional
