Calculation of the 14N nqcc tensor in p-cyanophenol was made here on a molecular structure given by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization (assuming Cs symmetry).  These calculated nqcc's are given 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.  The nqcc y-axis is chosen coincident with the inertia c-axis.  (degrees) is the angle between its subscripted parameters.  ETA = (Xxx - Xyy)/Xzz.


RMS is the root mean square difference between calculated and experimental diagonal nqcc's (percent of average of absolute experimental diagonal nqcc's).  RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of 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.
