Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in (N-Dimethyl)aniline (DMA)


 








 








 








Calculation was made of the N nqcc tensor in DMA (CS) on an ropt structure given by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization.  These are compared with experimental nqcc's [1] below in Table 1.  Structure parameters are given in Table 2.  Rotational constants are given in Table 3.


 








In Table 1, subscripts a,b,c refer to the principal axes of the inertia tensor; x,y,z to principal axes of the nqcc tensor.

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 B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) model for calculation of the nqcc's, which may be taken as an estimate of the uncertainty in the calculated nqcc's (notwithstanding inaccuracies in the optimized structure).
