Minnesota - Gaussian Solvation Module

Date of most recent change to this software:   November 20, 2012



MN-GSM (Minnesota Gaussian Solvation Module) is a module for incorporation of the SMx solvation models and other enhancements into GAUSSIAN09 Revision C.01 and into MN-GFM version 6.2 and later.

MN-GSM adds the following new capabilities to GAUSSIAN:

  • Lowdin partial atomic charges
  • Redistributed Lowdin population analysis (RLPA) partial atomic charges
  • CM2, CM3, and CM4/CM4M Class IV charges for molecules in the gas-phase or liquid-phase
  • Calculation of the solvent-accessible surface area (SASA) of the atoms in a given solute
  • Generalized Born electrostatic solvation model using Lowdin or RLPA partial atomic charges
  • SM5.42, SM5.43, SM6, SM8, SM8AD, and SM8T solvation models
  • The SM12 and VEM(d) models are also available.
  • Availability and Distribution

    Our license does not permit distribution of modified GAUSSIAN code.
