SO2Cl2
























 






Chlorine


Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in Sulfuryl Chloride


 








 








 








The complete 35Cl and 37Cl nqcc tensors in sulfuryl chloride were determined by Merke and Dreizler [1].


 








Calculations of the nqcc's were made here on an ropt structure given by MP2/6-311+G(3df) optimization.  These are compared with the experimental nqcc's in Tables 1 and 2.  Calculated nqcc's for SO237Cl2 are given in Table 3.  Structure parameterrs are given in Table 4.

 








In Tables 1 - 3, 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 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
