C1 Symmetry


Cs Symmetry




































At the MP2/6-311++G(d,p) level of theory, C1 is more stable than Cs by 1.7 kJ/mol.












Calculation of the nitrogen nqcc tensors in both C1 and Cs N-methyldiacetamide was made here on ropt molecular structures given by MP2/6-311++G(d,p) optimization.  These are compared with the experimental nqcc's [1] in Tables 1 and 2.  Structure parameters are given in Table 3, rotational constants in Table 4.


 








In Tables 1 and 2, 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 magnitude of the experimental nqcc's).  RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of the (1) B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) and (2) B3PW91/6-311+G(d,p) models for calculation of nitrogen efg's/nqcc's.

OBSERVATION:  The B3PW91/6-311+G(d,p) model performs much better here than does the B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) model.  This is consistently the case for pi-electron conjugated amides.
