The main motivation behind creating the tool was to convert the Crystal basis sets and ECPs to Turbomole format.
Most of the commonly used basis sets can already be found in various formats at the https://www.basissetexchange.org/, with the exception of Crystal basis sets.
Crystal basis sets can be found at this link: https://www.crystal.unito.it/basis-sets.html
The user can then copy a particular basis set and paste it in the web app to convert it to Turbomole format.
Warning: During testing, it was discovered by Prof. Sierka, that for pob-XVZ basis sets, the ECPs provided in the original publications contain different exponents of the r factors than expected by TURBOMOLE. Essentially, these factors were found to be reduced by 2, resulting in 0 instead of 2, 2 instead of 4, and so on. For proper usage of the ECPs provided with the pob-XVZ basis sets in TURBOMOLE, one should therefore increase the exponent of the r factors by 2 if the basis sets were obtained from the official publications. The next version of TURBOMOLE, i.e., 7.8 should come with pob-TZVP-rev2 and pob-DZVP-rev2 basis sets included with the corrected ECPs.
