A recently proposed extension of the MNDO formalism to d orbitals has been parameterized for the halogens CI, Br, and I. Extensive test calculations indicate slight consistent improvements for normalvalent molecules and dramatic improvements for hypervalent molecules, in comparison with established MNDO-type methods without d orbitals. The mean absolute errors in calculated heats of formation are 3.9 kcal/mol for 155 normalvalent compounds and 2.8 kcal/mol for 23 hypervalent compounds. The predicted structures of the hypervalent molecules are qualitatively correct, with a mean absolute error of 2° in 19 bond angles.
