in 1-Bromoadamantane


 











 





 








Bromine nqcc's in 1-bromoadamantane have been determined by Legon et al. [1].


 








Calculation of the nqcc's was made here on a structure given by MP2/6-311+G(d,p) optimization with approximate equilibrium CBr (= 1.9642 ) and CH bond lengths (~ re).  Calculated and experimental nqcc's are compared in Table 1.  Structure parameters are shown in Table 2.

Table 2.  MP2/6-311+G(d,p) C-C bond lengths and CCC angles (bridgehead) in 1-X-adamantane, where X = CN, Cl, Br, and I ( and degrees).  For comparison, in adamantane optimized at the same level of theory, all C-C = 1.5366 and CCC = 109.36o.  The complete structure of 1-bromoadamantane is given here in Z-matrix format.

The rotational constant for the 79Br species calculated on the MP2/6-311+G(d,p) structure is B = 559.80 MHz, the experimental rotational constant is 557.7828(1) MHz [1].
