Title: Relativistic effects on the nuclear magnetic shielding in the MF (M=Cu, Ag, Au) series

Abstract

Relativistic effects on the nuclear magnetic shielding {sigma}(M) of the series of diatomics MF (M=Cu, Ag, Au) are calculated and analyzed using the Dirac-Hartree-Fock (DHF) method in the random phase approximation (RPA). Significant differences due to relativistic effects on the shielding constant {sigma}(M) are found in this series of atoms. The high electronegativity of the fluorine atom works in conjunction with the spin-orbit coupling to increase the calculated value for {sigma}(Au). An unusually large diamagnetic contribution to the shielding constant is observed. Nonrelativistic nuclear magnetic shielding [{sigma}{sup NR}(M)] shows very good linear correlation with the nuclear charge (Z) of the metal, while the relativistic shielding [{sigma}{sup rel}(M)] varies as Z{sup 2.26}.

  • Density functional theory (DFT) calculations of NMR chemical shifts and molecular g-tensors with Gaussian-type orbitals are implemented via second-order energy derivatives within the scalar relativistic zeroth order regular approximation (ZORA) framework. Nonhybrid functionals, standard (global) hybrids, and range-separated (Coulomb-attenuated, long-range corrected) hybrid functionals are tested. Origin invariance of the results is ensured by use of gauge-including atomic orbital (GIAO) basis functions. The new implementation in the NWChem quantum chemistry package is verified by calculations of nuclear shielding constants for the heavy atoms in HX (X=F, Cl, Br, I, At) and H2X (X = O, S, Se, Te, Po), and Temore » chemical shifts in a number of tellurium compounds. The basis set and functional dependence of g-shifts is investigated for 14 radicals with light and heavy atoms. The problem of accurately predicting F NMR shielding in UF6-nCln, n = 1 to 6, is revisited. The results are sensitive to approximations in the density functionals, indicating a delicate balance of DFT self-interaction vs. correlation. For the uranium halides, the results with the range-separated functionals are mixed.« less
  • A range of square-pyramidal complexes of cobalt(III) with a bent apical nitrosyl ligand has been prepared and examined by VN and VZCo NMR spectroscopy, in a study of nephelauxetic and spectrochemical effects at the metal and nitrogen nuclei in the bent Co-NO chromophore. The basal ligands in this comparison include dithiocarbamate, quadridentate Schiff base or porphine, and bis-chelating diamine or oximate, so as to give S4, S2N2, N4, OONN, or ONON coordination in the plane and a range of substituents in the chelate and phenylene rings. The shielding of both cobalt and nitrogen tends to decrease with decrease in themore » M(d) *(NO) back-bonding, as indicated by the MN and NO bond distances, the MNO angle and the NO stretching frequency. The shieldings decrease from sulfur to nitrogen to oxygen coligators and also with electron withdrawal by ring substituents (and vice versa), i.e. with decrease in the ligand field splitting and in the nephelauxetism of the coligands. These parallelisms of the cobalt and nitrogen shielding accord with the orbital theory that was developed to explain the bending of the MNO ligand and influences of the metal and coligands. Significant interdependence of spectrochemical and nephelauxetic effects at cobalt and nitrogen arises from the degree of overlap and similarity in energies of the frontier orbitals for the paramagnetic circulation at nitrogen (n(N) * (NO)) and at cobalt (d-d). 43 references, 5 figures, 2 tables.« less
  • The spin lattice relaxation time, T{sub 1}, quadrupolar coupling constant, Q{sub cc}, and chemical shielding tensor elements of several rubidium salts have been surveyed at the frequency 130.88 MHz for {sup 87}Rb and 38.64 MHz for {sup 85}Rb, i.e. 9.4T, or 400 MHz for {sup 1}h's. Typical relaxation times for {sup 87}Rb are in the range of 100-300 ms and 50-300 ms for {sup 85}Rb. The Q{sub cc} values are in the range of 7-14 MHz for {sup 85}Rb and 3-11 MHz for {sup 87}Rb. A program was created to numerically simulate and fit experimental powder patterns for the {plusmore » minus} 1/2 central transition, where the principal axis systems (PAS) of the shielding and quadrupole tensors are not coincident. The analysis shows that having both nuclides available with significantly different quadrupole coupling constants makes the general line-shape problem more tractable. That is, the {sup 85}Rb data provides an excellent visualization of chemically different rubidium atoms when there are significant differences in the value of Q{sub cc}. Such data would be difficult to extract from the corresponding {sup 87}Rb line shapes due to the smaller value of Q{sub cc}. The {sup 87}Rb nuclide, however, because of its smaller value of Q{sub cc}, provides an excellent opportunity to observe the consequences of the noncoincident PAS frames between the shielding and quadrupole tensors.« less
