Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in meta-Chlorotoluene


 








 








 


 





 Complete chlorine nqcc tensors have been determined by Nair et al. [1].

 








The nqcc's were calculated here on a structure determined by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization.  These calculated nqcc's are compared with the experimental values in Table 1.  Structure parameters (in Z-matrix format) are given in Table 2, rotational constants in Table 3.


 








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

 








RMS is the root mean square difference between calculated and experimental diagonal nqcc's (percentage of the average of the magnitudes of the experimental diagonal nqcc's).  RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation for the B1LYP/TZV(3df,2p) model for calculation of the nqcc's.
