Deuterium and Bromine


Nuclear Quadrupole Coupling Constants


in Methyl Bromide


 








 

 
 





 








Deuterium nqcc's in fully deuterated methyl bromide were determined by Kukolich and Cogley [1].  The bromine nqcc in the normal species was measured by Carocci et al. [2],  Osipov and Grabois [3],  Arimondo et al. [4], Ramos and Drouin [5], Demaison et al. [6], and Thomas et al. [7].  Graner [8] determined an equilibrium structure.

 








Calculation of the deuterium and bromine nqcc's was made here on the equilibrium structure.  These nqcc's are compared with the experimental values in Tables 1 and 2.  Structure parameters and atomic coordinates respectively are given in Tables 3 and 4.

 








In Table 1, the subscripts u,v,w refer to the coordinate axes defined in Table 4.  The u-axis is along the threefold symmetry axis.  The nqcc's given with these subscripts are those for the H atom in the uv-plane.
