Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in 3-Nitrotoluene


 








 








 








Calculation was made here of the nitrogen nqcc's in 3-nitrotoluene on a molecular structure given by B3P86/6-311+G(3d,3p) optimization.  These calculated nqcc's are compared with the experimental values of Roucou et al. [1] in Table 1.  Structure parameters are given in Z-matrix format in Table 2, rotational constants in Table 3.


 








In Table 1, the subscripts a,b,c refer to the principal axes of the inertia tensor; x,y,z to the principal axes of the nqcc tensor.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.  RMS is the root mean square difference between calculated and experimental nqcc's (percent of the average experimental value).  RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of the (1) B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) and (2) B3PW91/6-311+G(d,p) models for calculation of nitrogen efg's/nqcc's.
