Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants

in Cyclopropylmethylgermane


 








 








 








73Ge nqcc's in cyclopropylmethylgermane were determined by Murray et al. [1].

 








Calculation of the nqcc's was made here on molecular structures derived by MP2/6-311+G(2d) and MP2(full)/6-311+G(2d) optimization.  Calculated and experimental nqcc's 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.

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 of the B3PW91/6-311G(2d) model for calculation of the efg's/nqcc's.
