Uniform quality basis sets (UQ‐NG; N=3, 4, 5), with s = p and s ≠ p, and a 6‐31 G* basis set have been optimized for the sulfur atom. These uniform quality basis sets in their uncontracted and contracted forms were used, together with other basis sets reported in the literature (a total of 40 basis sets), to study their accuracy in predicting the bond length and bond angle of H2S.
