Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in Ethyl Nitrite



 








 









Calculation of the N nqcc's in cis-trans ethyl nitrite was made here on ropt molecular structures given by MP2/6-311++G(d,p) and MP2/6-311+G(3df,3pd) optimization.












Calculated and experimental nqcc's [1] are compared in Table 1.  Structure parameters 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; x,y,z to the principal axes of the nqcc tensor.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.  (degrees) is the angle between its subscripted parameters.  RMS is the root measn square difference between calculated and experimental diagonal nqcc's.  RSD is the residual standard deviation of calibration of the B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) model for calculation of the efg's/nqcc's.
