Full-valence relativistic accurate atomic minimal basis set (AAMBS) orbitals are developed for the sixth-row elements from cesium to radon, including the lanthanides. Saturated primitive atomic basis sets are developed and subsequently used to form the AAMBS orbitals. By virtue of the use of a saturated basis, properties computed based on the AAMBS orbitals are basis set independent. In molecules, the AAMBS orbitals can be used to construct valence virtual orbitals (VVOs) that provide chemically meaningful abinitio lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (LUMOs) with basis set independent orbital energies. The optimized occupied molecular orbitals complemented with the VVOs form a set of full-valence molecular orbitals. They can be transformed into a set of oriented quasi-atomic orbitals (QUAOs) that provide information on intramolecular bonding via an intrinsic density analysis. In the present work, the development of the AAMBS for the sixth row is presented.
