Spin–orbit effects on the bond lengths and dissociation energies of sixth- and seventh-row p-block element monohydrides MH(M=Tl–Rn and element 113–118) are evaluated using relativistic effective core potentials at the coupled-cluster level of theory. Spin–orbit effects play a dominant role in the determination of molecular properties for the seventh-row hydrides. Spin–orbit effects on the bond lengths and dissociation energies of seventh-row hydrides are qualitatively similar to, but…
