A Why does my chosen basis set for W crash (DFT)?

  1. Apr 29, 2016 #1
    I am trying to optimize a molecule with the chemical formula C60H52O18P4S4W2.

    I have tried using different Basis Sets on my input file but I keep getting the following error:

    " Standard basis: Aug-CC-pV5Z (5D, 7F)
    Atomic number out of range in CCPV5Z.
    Error termination via Lnk1e in /sw/apps/gaussian/g09.a02/tintin/l301.exe at Sat Apr 30 02:56:57 2016."

    This is what my last input file looked like, I am sending from the command line on INUX using Gaussian 09.

    "#p iop(6/7=3) gfprint gfinput
    # ub3lyp aug-cc-pV5Z
    # opt"
    I thought the basis set I chose works for orbitals filled up to 6d, 7f shells, which would include tungsten atoms.
    Is the method ub3lyp not compatible with the basis set? Thanks a lot.
