The dispersion energy term in the symmetry-adapted perturbation theory based on the density functional theory (DFT-SAPT) converges rather slowly with basis set size. Accurate results for large complexes, where only calculations in small basis sets are practical, can be obtained by extrapolation to the complete basis set limit (CBS). In this paper, we propose an extrapolation scheme with the variable exponent optimized specifically for the DFT-SAPT calculations in correlation-consistent basis sets with diffuse functions. Another way to improve the accuracy term at no additional cost is to scale the dispersion term by a fixed amount. We present the scaling factors averaged over a balanced set of 10 model complexes. The results of these schemes are compared to the high-quality DFT-SAPT/CBS interaction energies in small complexes obtained by fitting to a series of basis sets up to aug-cc-pV5Z and to the CCSD(T)/CBS interaction energies.
