Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in Dichlorodifluoromethane


 








 








 








35Cl nqcc's in dichlorodifluorormethane have been determined by Baskakov, et al. [1], Takeo and Matsumura [2], and Su and Beeson [3].  Davis et al. [4] determined substitution, effective, and average structures.  Takeo and Matsumura [2] and Su and Beeson [3] also determined substitution structures.  Vogt et al. [5] determined a semi-experimental equilibrium structure, reSE.


 








Chlorine nqcc's were calculated here on the substitution structure of Davis et al. and on the reSE of Vogt et al.  These are compared with the experimental nqcc's of Baskakov et al. [1] in Table 1.  Structure parameters are compared in Table 2.

 









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


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