The context of (intermolecular and intramolecular) NMR chemical shifts



Department of Chemistry

SHILLONG 793022 Meghalaya


The simplest method by which the trends of the contributions to induced fields at a nuclear site can become sensible to a chemist is the most popular point-dipole approximation. Obviously as one begins to learn the application of the point dipole approximation in the contexts of the trends in NMR chemical shifts, it seems at the same time a beginning has been made to learn more about the limitations of this approach. Earlier1 there had been efforts to point out the approaches to contain the applications in conformity with the limitations. The recent publication2 on the Biphenyl molecule, using the HR PMR Studies in solids with the theoretical calculations on chemical shifts, seems to be revealing further the conflicts which arise (with indications to possible compromises and reconciliations) while trying to interpret the experimental results.

In this presentation, the salient general features would be enumerated. This would convince that the equations derived using the point dipole approximation justifiably prevails in all the contexts. Considerations of the point dipole approximation is the factor which can resolve conflicts either because its application is valid in a specific context or because a specific significance gets attributed when the magnetic dipole model does not explain the experimental trends convincingly.

J.Mag.Res., 175, (2005), p 59

Column 2, count: 24th line from bottom of column

Because we use Eq.(5) together with atom and bond susceptibilities that add up to the experimentally measured molecular susceptibility tensor [36], we think that the intermolecular shielding contributions obtained by the quantum chemical method should be scaled such that, for large distances Rjk , they match those from Eq.(5). The optimum scale factor turns out to be S = 0.87


Comment by S.Aravamudhan: [  Reference UH ]

The result as above from these authors is an effective information to arrive at the conclusion in the closing line of the Abstract above for the CRSI meeting in July 2006. In quantum mechanical (chemical) calculations when a variety of functional forms (from the point of view of ease of computational evaluations of matrix elements) are tried out for describing the orbital used for constructing basis sets, it becomes necessary to monitor the trends of the functions at closer nuclear distances and at farther distances (at infinity). That the equation based on magnetic dipole model must be considered to examine these trends seems a natural outcome of the intuitively appealing  "lumped magnetic moment" over the distributive "magnetic susceptibility" due to charge circulations. The magnetic dipole description is inadequate at closer distances and the efforts of S.Aravamudhan had been to improve the "range of closer distances [  CLICK HERE for an Illustration ]" for the validity of point dipole approximation.
