Simulations
Singlepoint calculations
Singlepoint calculations can be performed for either given geometries (one or many) or generic input vector(s) X (often, molecular descriptors representing a molecule) and can be performed either with a pretrained model supported by MLatom or with a usertrained model.
Input arguments
The user has to choose at least one model either with MLmodelIn
or by giving the name of a pretrained model.
At least one of the arguments, XYZfile
or XfileIn
, should be chosen.
useMLmodel MLmodelIn=[file with ML model]
orAIQM1
,ANI1ccx
, …One and only one of these two options can be chosen.
useMLmodel MLmodelIn
: see usertrained models for details. No default parameters toMLmodelIn
are provided. Requests to read a file with ML model.AIQM1
,ANI1ccx
, …: see pretrained models for a full list. This argument is optional and no default parameters are provided. Requests one of the pretrained models supported by MLatom.
XYZfile=[file with XYZ coordinates]
orXfileIn=[file with input vectors X]
One and only one of these two options can be chosen. No default file names.
XYZfile
: requests to make predictions for one or many molecules provided in file with their XYZ coordinates. The units of coordinates depend on the model. For pretrained models Å should be used.XfileIn
: requests to make predictions for provided list of input vectors (one input vector per line in text file), which are typically molecular descriptors.
Output file arguments
At least one of the below arguments is required.
YestFile=[file with estimated Y values]
This argument is optional and no default parameters are provided.
Saves predictions Y to the requested file. If a file with the same name already exists, program will terminate and not overwrite it. If predictions are made with pretrained models, they are energies in Hartree. Other predictions depend on a model.
YgradXYZestFile=[file with estimated XYZ gradients]
This argument is optional and no default parameters are provided.
Should be used only with XYZfile option. Saves predicted XYZ gradients (first derivatives) to the requested file. If a file with the same name already exists, program will terminate and not overwrite it. If predictions are made with pretrained models, they are XYZ gradients in Hartree/Å.
YgradEstFile=[file with estimated gradients]
This argument is optional and no default parameters are provided.
Should be used only with XfileIn option. Saves predicted gradients (first derivatives) wrt to elements of input vector X to the requested file. If a file with the same name already exists, program will terminate and not overwrite it.
Note
Calculations with AIQM1based models also generate additional output files, i.e., if one needs other properties than available via the above options, one should use a single XYZ geometry and look at the MNDO output file mndo.out
.
Example
Singlepoint calculations of energies (and gradients if needed) of closedshell molecules in electronic ground state is the simplest job, which can be run with 34 line MLatom input file, e.g., sp.inp
:
AIQM1 # or useMLmodel MLmodelIn=CH3Cl.unf if you, e.g., want to use CH3Cl.unf model
xyzfile=sp.xyz
yestfile=enest.dat
ygradxyzestfile=xyzgradest.dat
This input requires a sp.xyz
file with XYZ geometries of molecules (you can provide many molecules as usual for MLatom), e.g., for hydrogen and methane sp.xyz
file can look like (geometries in Å):
2
H 0.000000 0.000000 0.363008
H 0.000000 0.000000 0.363008

H 0.627580 0.627580 0.627580
H 0.627580 0.627580 0.627580
After you prepared your input files sp.inp
and sp.xyz
, you can run MLatom as usual:
mlatom sp.inp > sp.out
After the calculations finish, MLatom output sp.out
will contain information depending on the model, e.g., for AIQM1 it will contain the standard deviation of NN prediction and components of AIQM1 energies:
Standard deviation of NN contribution : 0.00892407 Hartree 5.59994 kcal/mol
NN contribution : 0.00210898 Hartree
Sum of atomic self energies : 0.08587317 Hartree
ODM2* contribution : 1.09094119 Hartree
D4 contribution : 0.00000889 Hartree
Total energy : 1.17893224 Hartree
Standard deviation of NN contribution : 0.00025608 Hartree 0.16069 kcal/mol
NN contribution : 0.00958812 Hartree
Sum of atomic self energies : 33.60470494 Hartree
ODM2* contribution : 6.86968756 Hartree
D4 contribution : 0.00010193 Hartree
Total energy : 40.46490632 Hartree
In any case, MLatom will save predicted values in file enest.dat
which for above calculations will contain AIQM1 energies in Hartree:
1.178932238420
40.464906315250
and XYZ gradients in Hartree/Å will be saved in file xyzgradest.dat
looking like this:

Note
Your output may have very minor numerical differences.
Geometry optimization
Geometry optimizations can be performed for given geometries (one or many) with either a pretrained model supported by MLatom or a usertrained model. Optimizations are performed using thirdparty software (Gaussian or ASE), please see the installation of thirdparty software packages Gaussian and ASE; the experimental option is to use SciPy geometry optimization, but it is not well tested. On the MLatom@XACS cloud, ASE is used by default.
Input and output arguments
The user has to choose a task (minimum energy or TS geometry optimization), provide initial geometry, and choose one of the models or methods.

Method or model specification
Universal ML and QM/ML methods
If one of the known universal ML models or hybrid QM/ML methods are requested, their names should be provided as
AIQM1
orANI1ccx
(see manual), e.g., input file will look like:geomopt AIQM1 xyzfile=ts_opt.xyz

method
andqmprog
arguments like this:geomopt method=B3LYP/631G* qmprog=gaussian xyzfile=ts_opt.xyz
ML models
MLmodelIn=[file with ML model] MLmodelType=[one of the supported types]

: it is required; no default parameters are provided. The units of coordinates should be Å.
Provide the file with initial XYZ coordinates of one or many molecules.
Program for optimization
optprog=[either Gaussian or ASE or SciPy]
: chooses a thirdparty program for optimization. By default, MLatom will try to use Gaussian. If Gaussian is not
found, it will try to use ASE. If ASE is not found, it will try to use SciPy. Default algorithms in Gaussian, ASE,
and SciPy are Berny optimization, LBFGS, and BFTS, respectivel. Optimizations settings can be changed by using
additional options for the thirdparty program.
If ASE is used, it may terminate after maximum number of iterations without informing a user that geometry is not optimized.
Output files
optxyz=[file with optimized XYZ coordinates]
: saves optimized geometries in the requested file. The default file name is optgeoms.xyz
.
In addition, geometry optimizations will dump many useful files:
optimized geometries in
optgeoms.xyz
or other file saved under name requested withoptxyz=
.the optimization trajectories in XYZ format
opttraj1.xyz
and JSON formatopttraj1.json
and so on for each molecule.in case of optimizations with the Gaussian optimizer, you will also get the corresponding input and output files
gaussian1.com
andgaussian1.log
etc for each molecule.
If you want to control how much information is saved (e.g., for big molecules and many molecules):
printmin
will not print information about every iteration.printall
will print detailed information at each iteration.dumpopttrajs=False
will not dump any optimization trajectories.

Frequencies and thermochemistry
Calculation of frequencies and thermochemical properties can be performed for given optimized geometries (one or many) with either a pretrained model supported by MLatom or a usertrained model. The geometries should be first optimized with the same model before these calculations can be performed. Calculations require the use of thirdparty software (Gaussian, ASE or PySCF), please see the installation instructions. On the MLatom@XACS cloud, both ASE and PySCF can be used.
Input arguments
The user has to choose at least one model either with MLmodelIn
or by giving the name of a pretrained model.

requests one of the pretrained models supported by MLatom, e.g., AIQM1, ANI1ccx, etc. If AIQM1 or ANI1ccx is requested, MLatom will also calculate enthalpies of formation at 298 K, see tutorial. The standard deviation of neural networks in AIQM1 and ANI1ccx models will be reported and if it is larger than 0.41 and 1.68 kcal/mol, respectively, predicted enthalpies of formation have potentially too high uncertainty and a warning will be reported in the output file.
XYZfile=[file with optimized XYZ coordinates]
This argument is required; no default parameters are provided.
File with optimized XYZ coordinates of one or many molecules. The units of coordinates should be Å.
freqprog=[Gaussian, PySCF or ASE]
By default, MLatom will try to use Gaussian. If Gaussian is not found, it will try to use PySCF, then ASE.
Chooses a thirdparty program for frequencies calculations.
Note
Frequency calculations with Gaussian program also generate Gaussian output files mol_1.log
, mol_2.log
, etc, which contain additional information.

Example
Thermochemical properties of closedshell molecules in the electronic ground state can be calculated at ANI1ccx or AIQM1 level by adding an argument freq
to the MLatom input file, e.g., freq.inp
, and they should be run on geometries optimized with the corresponding model. An example of MLatom input file using the ANI1ccxoptimized geometries:
ANI1ccx
xyzfile=optgeoms.xyz
freq
freqprog=ASE # or freqprog=gaussian if you choose Gaussian
ase.linear=1,0
ase.symmetrynumber=2,12
When ASE is used for the calculation of thermochemical properties, you should specify ase.linear
and ase.symmetrynumber
this two keywrods. ase.linear
is 0 for nonlinear molecule, 1 for linear molecule, and ase.symmetrynumber
is the
rotational symmetry number for each molecule (see Table 10.1 and Appendix B of C. Cramer “Essentials of Computational
Chemistry”, 2nd Ed.). For example, for hydrogen and methane this two molecules, you should set ase.linear=1,0
and
ase.symmetrynumber=2,12
.

After the calculations finish, MLatom output freq.out
will contain the summary with atomization enthalpy at 0 K, ZPVEexclusive atomization energy at 0 K, and heat of formation at 298.15 K for each molecule. If you use ASE, MLatom output will contain the same lines as above, but also include additional data such as entropy and the Gibbs free energy:

Heat of formation at 298.15 K : 17.63420 kcal/mol
If you use Gaussian, the Gaussian output files of frequency calculations are saved in mol_1.log
, mol_2.log
, … files for each molecule; these files contain ZPVE energy and lots of thermochemical data such as entropy and the Gibbs free energy.
IRC

Strengths: AIQM1 is approaching CCSD(T)/CBS accuracy but with a speed of semiempirical methods (thousand times faster than DFT) for energy calculations and geometry optimizations of closedshell molecules in their ground state. It is also transferable for calculations of charged and radical species as well as for excitedstate calculations with good accuracy. MLatom will also report the standard deviation of neural networks correction and if it is larger than 0.41 kcal/mol the AIQM1 calculations have potentially too high uncertainty and a warning will be reported in the output file if heats of formation are predicted.
Limitations: only CHNO elements are supported. On XACS cloud, no analytical gradients are available, i.e., geometry optimizations and frequencies calculations are rather slow; install local MLatom if higher efficiency is needed.
 ANI1ccx, ANI1x, ANI2x, ANI1xD4 and ANI2xD4 (requires to install TorchANI)
Strengths: Faster than AIQM1. ANI1ccx is also approaching CCSD(T)/CBS accuracy for energy calculations and geometry optimizations of closedshell molecules in their ground state but is generally less accurate and reliable than AIQM1. MLatom will also report the standard deviation of neural networks and if it is larger than 1.68 kcal/mol the ANI1ccx calculations have potentially too high uncertainty and a warning will be reported in the output file if heats of formation are predicted.
Limitations: only CHNO elements are supported by ANI1ccx and ANI1x, CHNOFClS are supported by ANI2x. Not transferable for calculations of charged and radical species or to excitedstate calculations. Not good accuracy for noncovalent interactions if no D4 correction is included.
They can be used for such typical simulations as (see the corresponding sections for more details):
Optional arguments
AIQM1 is using interfaces to MNDO or Sparrow to calculate QM contributions. Thus, the following AIQM1specific arguments can be used:
QMprog=[program]
:MNDO
[default]Sparrow
[default if MNDO is not found]chooses a program for calculating QM part of AIQM1. If neither MNDO or Sparrow program is found, MLatom will not be able to run AIQM1 calculations.
mndokeywords=[file with MNDO keywords, e.g., mndokw]
allows to modify the input to MNDO to request nonstandard calculations, e.g., to define charge, multiplicity, excitedstate calculations settings, convergence criteria, etc. These keywords can be provided to MLatom via a MNDO keyword file, e.g.,
mndokw
file, which should contain at least keywordsiop=22 immdp=1
. For more details see the AIQM1 tutorial and MNDO documentation.
Note
Calculations with AIQM1based models also generate additional output files, i.e., if one needs other properties than available via the above arguments, one should perform calculations on a single XYZ geometry and look at the MNDO output file mndo.out
.
Example
Geometry optimization of closedshell molecules in the electronic ground state is as simple as running single point calculations and a 4line MLatom input file, e.g., opt.inp
, looks like this:
AIQM1 # or ANI1ccx, ANI2x, etc.
xyzfile=init.xyz
optxyz=opt.xyz
geomopt
This input requires init.xyz
file with initial XYZ geometries of molecules to be optimized (you can provide many molecules as usual for MLatom), e.g., for hydrogen and methane init.xyz
file can look like (geometries in Å):

After you prepared your input files opt.inp
and init.xyz
, you can run MLatom as usual:
mlatom opt.inp > opt.out
MLatom output file opt.out
should contain lines similar to those below (if interface to the Gaussian program was used for optimization):

requests calculation of the twophoton absorption (TPA) cross section for a spectra or a given wavelength.
SMILLESfile=[file with SMILES]
this argument is required; no default file name.
file with SMILES of one or many molecules.
auxfile=[file with the information of wavelength and Et30 in the format of 'wavelength_lowbound,wavelength_upbound,Et30'] (wavelength in nm.)
optional. If the auxiliary file does not exist, then the default value of Et30 will be 33.9 (toluene) and the whole spectra between 600–1100 nm will be provided. The entries (lines) should be provided in the same order as in
SMILLESfile
. See the list with the solvents and their Et30 values.
Output
Output contains the commaseparated predicted MLTPA cross section values or spectra in units of GM for each wavelength. Output files tpa[molecular index as in SMILESfile].txt
are saved in a folder tpa[absolute time]
in current path.
Example
Here we show how to calculate TPA cross section for RHODAMINE 6G and RHODAMINE 123 molecules with MLatom input file mltpa.inp
:
MLTPA
SMILESfile='
CCNC1=CC2=C(C=C1C)C(=C3C=C(C(=[NH+]CC)C=C3O2)C)C4=CC=CC=C4C(=O)OCC.[Cl]
COC(=O)C1=CC=CC=C1C2=C3C=CC(=N)C=C3OC4=C2C=CC(=C4)N.Cl
'
auxfile='
600,850,55.4
600,600,33.9
'
You can submit this input file on the XACS cloud or run it locally with
mlatom mltpa.inp > mltpa.out
Alternatively:
MLTPA
SMILESfile=Smiles.csv
auxfile=_aux.txt
This input requires Smiles.csv
file with SMILES of molecules:
CCNC1=CC2=C(C=C1C)C(=C3C=C(C(=[NH+]CC)C=C3O2)C)C4=CC=CC=C4C(=O)OCC.[Cl]
COC(=O)C1=CC=CC=C1C2=C3C=CC(=N)C=C3OC4=C2C=CC(=C4)N.Cl
and optional _aux.txt
:
600,850,55.4
600,600,33.9
After the calculations finish, the predicted TPA cross section values are saved in a folder named tpa[absolute time]
. In the folder, there are two files for two molecules: tpa1.txt
and tpa2.txt
. For our examples, the tpa1.tst
looks like:
wavelength,predicted_sigma (GM)
600.0,285.19455
610.0,297.71707
620.0,284.11694
......
810.0,121.51988
820.0,116.537994
830.0,118.04909
840.0,103.65925
850.0,113.72374
and tpa2.txt
:
wavelength,predicted_sigma (GM)
600.0,138.2346
