Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants

in N-hydroxypyridine-2(1H)-thione (pyrithione)

 








 








 








Calculation was made of the nitrogen nqcc tensor in pyrithione on a molecular structure given by B3P86/6-31G(3d,3p) optimization.  These are compared with the experimental nqcc's [1] in Tables 1 - 3.  Structure parameters are given in Table 4, rotational constants in Table 5.


 








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.  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 difference between calculated and experimental diagonal nqcc's (percent of average experimental nqcc's). RSD is the calibration residual standard deviation of the model for calculation of the nqcc's.
