  • $\begingroup$ you should provide 1)package you are using 2)properties of interest 3)other atoms 4) size of the complex (ideally the structure too) 5) machine you are running it on. $\endgroup$ – permeakra Jan 25 '15 at 16:34

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to chemistry.se! Learn more about this site, taking the tour and visiting the help center. Could you edit in an example of what you want to do. Is it a cluster of 40 Hg atoms or is it a cluster of 40 atoms containing one Hg? What are the other atoms? Does it have a charge? What DFT method would you like to do? What accuracy is necessary? $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Feb 4 '15 at 5:56
