    This work reports the development and testing of an automated algorithm for estimating the energies of weakly bound molecular clusters employing correlated theory. Firstly, the monomers and dimers of (homo/hetero) clusters are identified, and the sum of one-body and two-body contributions to correlation energy is calculated. The addition of this contribution to the Hartree-Fock full calculation (FC) energies provides a good estimate of the total energies at Møller-Plesset second-order perturbation theory (MP2)/coupled-cluster method with singles and doubles (CCSD) (T)-level theory using augmented Dunning basis sets. The estimated energies for several test clusters show an excellent agreement with their FC counterparts, with a substantial wall-clock time saving employing off-the-shelf hardware. Furthermore, the complete basis set (CBS) limit for MP2 energy computed using the two-body approach also agrees with its CBS energy with its FC counterpart.© 2022 Wiley Periodicals LLC.
