Calculation of the nitrogen nqcc's in m-fluorobenzonitrile was made here on a molecular structure given by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization.  These are compared with the experimental nqcc's of Bttcher and Sutter [1] and of Kamaee et al. [2] in Table 1.  Structure parameters are given in Z-Matrix format in Table 2, rotational constants and quartic centrifugal distortion constants atomic coordinates 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.  The nqcc y-axis is chosen coincident with the inertia c-axis, these are perpendicular to the molecular plane.  (degrees) is the angle between its subscripted parameters.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.


RMS is the root mean square differene between calculated and experimental diagonal nqcc's (percent of average experimental nqcc).  RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of the B3PW91/6-311+G(df,pd) model for calculation of the efg's/nqcc's.
