Dirac-scattered-wave (DSW) calculations have been performed for the W(CO)6 molecule. Ground state molecule orbitals, ionization energies, and the lowest d → CO π* transitions are reported. The results show that relativistic effects stabilaze the metal-ligand interaction, but they do not seem to add to the qualitative understanding of the valence electronic structure.
