Benchmark Database of Barrier Heights for Heavy Atom Transfer, Nucleophilic Substitution, Association, and Unimolecular Reactionsand its Use to Test Theoretical Methods

A benchmark database of forward and reverse barrier heights (BH) for 19 non-hydrogen- transfer reactions (NHT) has been developed by using W1 calculations, and it is called the NHTBH38/04 database.1  29 DFT methods and 6 wave function theory (WFT) methods have been tested against the new database.

From the following links, you can get all information for this new NHT38/04 database.
