In this paper, we combine high-level ab initio quantum chemical calculations with a continuum description of the solvent to obtain accurate solvation free energies of organic solutes in water. By using correlated wave functions at the generalized valence bondperfect pairing (GVB-PP) level, we are able to efficiently produce accurate gas-phase charge distributions. These are then used to obtain solvation energies in a self-consistent formalism which cycles through quantum chemical calculations… Expand
