The microwave spectrum of pyrrole-2-carbonitrile was investigated by Davis and Gerry [1] (1980), and by Sakaizumi et al. [2] (1991).


 








Calculation of the 14N nqcc tensors was made here on ropt molecular structures given by B3LYP/cc-pVTZ and B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimizations.  These calculated nqcc's are given in Tables 1 and 2.  Structure parameters in Z-matrix format are compared in Table 3, rotational constants in Table 4.  Dipole moments and quartic centrifugal distortion constants are given in Table 5.


 








In Tables 1 and 2, subscripts a,b,c refer to the principal axes of the inertia tensor; x,y,z to the principal axes of the nqcc tensor.  (degrees) is the angle between its subscripted parameters.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.

RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of the B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) model for calculation of nitrogen efg's/nqcc's.
