Title: FJK - A cap-free fragment approach with embedding Fock potentials

We present a cap-free fragment-based approach for Hartree-Fock calculations where full Fock potentials are used for monomer embedding. In this FJK (Fragmentation with Coulomb (J) and exchange (K) embedding) method the system is divided into fragments by heterolytic fission of covalent bonds. The one-electron operators for each fragment are built including the mean-field Coulomb and exchange potential of all the remaining monomers. The description is improved by iterative updates of the monomer potentials within which the method converges to the full system Hartree-Fock result. It is shown that a small number of iterations is sufficient to yield errors in the absolute energy comparable to those usually observed in density fitting procedures. Conformational energies of organic molecules are used as benchmark, demonstrating the robustness of the procedure.
