In the present case, the A+B/l3 formula predicts a CCSD limit contribution to TAE[SiF4 ] of 119.28 kcal/mol from the (A)VQZ+2d1f and (A)V5Z+2d1f results, with the extrapolation accounting for 2.27 kcal/mol of the final result. For comparison, extrapolation from two smaller basis sets, (A)VTZ+2d1f and (A)VQZ+2d1f, yields 119.62 kcal/mol, while the A + B/(l + 1/2)α formula applied to all three values yields a much smaller value of 118.87 kcal/mol.

The (T) contribution is computed as 9.11 and 9.61 kcal/mol, respectively, in the (A)VTZ+2d1f and (A)VQZ+2d1f basis sets: assuming A + B/l3 behavior, this extrapolates to a limit of 9.98 kcal/mol. We thus finally find a basis set limit valence correlation contribution of 129.26 kcal/mol.

As expected, the Si(2s,2p) and F(1s) inner-shell correlation energy is quite substantial in absolute terms, accounting for some 28% of the overall correlation energy excluding the very deep Si(1s) core. As we have seen in the past for second-row molecules, however, the differential contribution to TAE nearly cancels, in this case being only +0.08 kcal/mol. This contribution is definitely dwarfed by that of scalar relativistic effects, which as we noted we compute to be −1.88 kcal/mol.

Combining all of the above with the atomic spin-orbit correction noted in the Methods section, we finally obtain a “bottom-of-the-well” TAEe of 573.92 kcal/mol; combined with the experimentally derived ZPE, we obtain TAE0 =565.89 kcal/mol.

Combining this with the CODATA heats of formation of F(g) and SiF4 (g), we finally ◦ ◦ obtain ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]=107.34 kcal/mol. Using the more recent ∆Hf,0 [SiF4 (g)] instead, this value is reduced to 107.15 kcal/mol.

In order to make an assessment of the probable error in these values, we should consider both the uncertainty in the calculated TAE0 and the propagated experimental uncertain ◦ ties in ∆Hf,0 [SiF4 (g)] and ∆Hf,0 [F(g)]. Using exactly the same method as we have employed, MdO obtained a mean absolute error of 0.22 kcal/mol for a wide variety of first-and second-row molecules, which dropped as low as 0.16 kcal/mol when some molecules with significant nondynamical correlation effects were eliminated. Erring on the side of caution, we assign 0.22 kcal/mol as a standard deviation rather than an upper limit to the error.

Given uncertainties of 0.07 and 0.20 kcal/mol in the CODATA heats of formation for F(g) ◦ and SiF4 (g), respectively, we obtain 107.34±0.41 kcal/mol for ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]. Employing the ◦ more recent Johnson [12] ∆Hf [SiF4 (g)] instead, which has a smaller uncertainty, we propose ◦ ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]=107.15±0.38 kcal/mol as our final estimate. (At 298.15 K, using the CODATA H298 − H0 functions, this corresponds to 108.19±0.38 kcal/mol.) Our final estimate is in fact within the reduced error limits of Desai [5], ◦ ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]=106.5±1.0 kcal/mol. It agrees to within combined uncertainties with the GS value after applying CG’s relativistic correction, 107.4±0.5 kcal/mol, which suggests that the ‘spurious’ Si(cr)→Si(amorph) transition enthalpy discussed in the introduction may indeed have been a fair estimate. In previous calculations [44,45] on SiF4 and SiCl4, respectively, Bauschlicher and coworkers derived values of 107.5±2 and 107.8±2 kcal/mol, respectively, in which the error bars are very conservative. In the context of a review article [38] on highaccuracy theoretical thermochemistry, Martin recently repeated the GS calculation on SiH4 using techniques similar to those employed here, and obtained a TAE0 [SiH4 (g)] consistent ◦ with ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]=107.55±0.5 kcal/mol if the Si(cr)→Si(amorph) phase transition enthalpy ◦ was indeed included. We conclude that all data support a slight increase in ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)] to the 107.15±0.38 kcal/mol value proposed in the present work.

As a final note, we consider the performance of some ‘standard’ theoretical thermochemistry methods for this molecule, compared to our benchmark TAEe =573.92±0.22 kcal/mol.

As noted previously [46], G2 theory [47] fails dismally, underestimating TAE0 by 8.2 kcal/mol even as both spin-orbit splitting and scalar relativistics were neglected, which would together have increased the gap by a further 3.85 kcal/mol. G3 theory [48] represents a substantial improvement, being 2.2 kcal/mol below our value including spin-orbit corrections: applying the scalar relativistic correction to their value (or, equivalently, deleting it from our own calculation) would however increase that gap to a still substantial 4.1 kcal/mol. Interestingly, both CBS-Q and CBS-QB3 [49] predict much higher values, 576.0 and 577.0 kcal/mol, respectively. Neither value includes spin-orbit or relativistic corrections: upon applying them, we find that they underestimate our best result by only −1.8 and −0.8 kcal/mol, respectively. Finally, the W1 theory very recently proposed by Martin and de Oliveira [30] yields a value of 573.85 kcal/mol, only 0.07 kcal/mol below the present calibration result. (W1 theory includes both scalar relativistic and spin-orbit corrections as standard parts of the method.)


From an exhaustive ab initio calibration study on the SiF4 molecule, we obtain a total atomization energy at 0 K of 565.89±0.22 kcal/mol. This value includes rather substantial scalar relativistic (−1.88 kcal/mol) and atomic spin-orbit (−1.97 kcal/mol) effects, as well as more minor effects of inner-shell correlation (−0.08 kcal/mol) and anharmonicity in the zero-point energy (+0.04 kcal/mol). In combination with experimentally very precisely ◦ known heats of formation of F(g) and SiF4 (g), we obtain ∆Hf,0 [Si(g)]=107.15±0.38 kcal/mol ◦ (∆Hf,298 [Si(g)]=108.19±0.38 kcal/mol). This confirms the suggestion of Grev and Schaefer [6] that the rather uncertain JANAF/CODATA value of 106.5±1.9 kcal/mol should be revised upward, albeit to about 1 kcal/mol lower than their suggested 108.1±0.5 kcal/mol.

The revision will be relevant for future computational studies on heats of formation of silicon compounds. Among standard computational thermochemistry methods, G2 and G3 theory exhibit large errors, while CBS-Q performs relatively well and the very recent W1 theory reproduces the present calibration result to 0.1 kcal/mol.
