Derivatives. Among the simplest polarization basis sets are 6-31G* and 6-311G*, constructed from 6-31G and 6-311G, respectively, by adding a set of d-type polarization functions written in terms of a single Gaussian for each heavy (non-hydrogen) atom. A set of six second-order Gaussians is added in the case of 6-31G* while a set of five pure d-type Gaussians is added in the case of 6-311G*. Gaussian exponents for polarization functions have been chosen to give the lowest energies for representative molecules.

Because there are relatively few of these, CIS is in fact practical for molecules of moderate complexity. As noted previously, single-electron promotions do not lead to improvement in either the ground-state wavefunction or energy over the corresponding Hartree-Fock * Organic chemists, in particular, have the unfortunate habit of referring to a transition state as if it was not in fact a ground state, that is, implying that a transition state is an excited state. While a transition state corresponds to a molecule which is unstable with respect to motion along a single geometrical coordinate (the “reaction coordinate”), it also corresponds to the lowest-energy species for this structure.

One approach is to construct a more flexible description of electron motions in terms of a combination of Hartree-Fock descriptions for ground and excited states. Configuration interaction (CI) and Møller-Plesset (MP) models are two of the most commonly used models of this type. The socalled second-order Møller-Plesset model (MP2) is the most practical and widely employed. It generally provides excellent descriptions of equilibrium geometries and conformations, as well as thermochemistry, including the thermochemistry of reactions where bonds are broken and formed.
