Abstract: We present molecular applications of a spin free size-extensive state-specific multireference perturbation theory (SS-MRPT), which is valid for model functions of arbitrary spin and generality. In addition to the singlet states, this method is equally capable to handle nonsinglet states. The formulation based on Rayleigh-Schrödinger approach works with a complete active space and treats each of the model space functions democratically. The method is capable of handling varying degrees of quasidegeneracy and of ensuring size consistency as a consequence of size extensivity. In this paper, we illustrate the effectiveness of the Møller-Plesset (MP) partitioning based spin free SS-MRPT [termed as SS-MRPT(MP)] in computations of energetics of the nonsinglet states of several chemically interesting and demanding molecular examples such as LiH, NH2, and CH/sub3. The spectroscopic constants of 3Σ- state of NH and OH+ molecular systems and the ground 1Σg+ as well as excited 3Σu+ states of N2 have been investigated and comparison with experimental and full configuration interaction values (wherever available) has also been provided. We have been able to demonstrate here that the SS-MRPT(MP) method is an intrinsically consistent and promising approach to compute reliable energies of nonsinglet states over different geometries.
