Based on the Aλ diagnostic for multireference effects recently proposed [U.R. Fogueri, S. Kozuch, A. Karton, J.M. Martin, Theor. Chem. Acc. 132 (2013) 1], a simple method for improving total atomization energies and reaction energies calculated at the CCSD level of theory is proposed. The method requires a CCSD calculation and two additional density functional theory calculations for the molecule. Two sets containing 139 and 51 molecules are used as training and validation sets, respectively, for total atomization energies. An appreciable decrease in the mean absolute error from 7?10 kcal mol−1 for CCSD to about 2 kcal mol−1 for the present method is observed. The present method provides atomization energies and reaction energies that compare favorably with relatively recent scaled CCSD methods.
