Turbomole is a general purpose quantum chemistry software package for ab initio electronic structure calculations and provides:

  • ground state calculations for methods such as Hartree-Fock, DFT, MP2, and CCSD(T);
  • excited state calculations at different levels such as full RPA, TDDFT, CIS(D), CC2, and ADC(2);
  • geometry optimizations, transition state searches, molecular dynamics calculations;
  • property and spectra calculations such as IR, UV/VIS, Raman, and CD;
  • approximations like resolution-of-the-identity (RI) to speed-up the calculations;
  • free graphical user interface; as well as
  • parallel versions (OpenMP, Fork, MPI and Global Arrays) for almost all kind of jobs.
