Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in 4-Nitrobenzonitrile


 








 








Calculation was made of the nitrogen nqcc's in 4-nitrobenzonitrile on a molecular structure given by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization.  These calculated nqcc's are shown in Tables 1 and 2.  Structure parameters are given in Z-matrix format in Table 3, rotational constants in Table 4.


 








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.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.  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.
