SCM is proud to announce the 2013 release of the ADF modeling suite. We continue to improve and expand our software suite with the aid of our academic and industrial ADF authors and other partners. Several enhancements and new features have been implemented in our molecular Density Functional Theory (DFT) code ADF and its periodic DFT companion BAND. Our semi-empirical Density Functional based Tight-Binding (DFTB) module has been updated and we offer Dr. Stewart’s latest MOPAC2012 module including the PM7 model. The parallelization of the reactive MD module ReaxFF from van Duin and co-workers has been improved considerably.
We refer to the Release Notes for a more complete and detailed list of enhancements.

- Support for most of the new features
