Hi Theo,

I would not know about the second part (e.g. building the AMS train part) but to extract the geometries with python you can use the cclib library. An example (by myself) can be found here:

Have a look at the other scripts in the repository, you may have insights on how to manipulate the geometries for your purpose.

Objet : [ADF-LIST] script to extract geometries from PES scan with Gaussian 16.


I was wondering if someone has (or knows where to find) a Python or Shell script that can extract the geometries (and energies) from a (relaxed) potential energy scan performed with Gaussian 16 and to convert the geometries into the BGF format to be used in the GEO file with AMS train ?

Thanks in advance.
