About SCM/ADF ( http://www.scm.com ). Scientific Computing & Modelling
develops The Amsterdam Density Functional package (ADF) - a leading software
package for quantum chemistry research using Density Functional Theory (DFT).
SCM is a company spun off from the Baerends group in Amsterdam since 1995
for development of ADF. SCM operates from Vrije Universiteit, Theoretical
Chemistry, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Seascape ( http://www.seascapelearning.com ) represents SCM in California
and India. Seascape R&D Network enables organizations engaged in nanosciences,
materials, pharma, biotech and chemical research; to increase the
cost-effectiveness and innovation potential of their R&D by tapping into
scientific resources from India through contract research projects.


Strong points  of ADF:
many properties and environment models for almost any molecule
excels at transition metal and heavy element compounds.

ADF2006  Release:
- First release of BAND-GUI to set up and visualize results of periodic
  structure calculations

- ADF-GUI improvements: fragment support, easy building of inorganic
  compounds, QM/MM calculations on proteins, visualization of spin-orbit
  results

- Analytic second derivatives for fast and robust frequency calculations
  at the GGA level

- Hybrid functionals (such as B3LYP) supported during SCF

- Spin-orbit coupled TDDFT, frozen-density embedding, resonance Raman
