I will present a general methodology for generating accurate and transferable ab initio force fields, employing the framework of symmetry adapted perturbation theory (SAPT). The resulting force fields are “physically-motivated” in that they contain separate, explicit terms to account for the various fundamental intermolecular interactions, such as exchange, electrostatics, induction, and dispersion, with each term parametrized to a corresponding term in the SAPT energy decomposition.
