Calculation of 13C, 15N, and 29Si NMR Shielding Tensors for Selected X-Substituted Silatranes Using GIAO/CSGT-SCF
Dong Hee Kim, Mi Jung Lee, Se-Woung Oh
13C, 15N, and 29Si NMR chemical shifts have been computed for selected X-substituted silatranes (X=Cl, F, H, CH3) using Gauge-Including Atomic Orbitals (GIAO) and Continuous Set of Gauge Transformations (CSGT) at the Hartree-Fock level of theory. The isotropic 13C chemical shifts are largely insensitive to substituent-induced structural changes. In this study, the isotropic 13C chemical shifts GIAO and CSGT calculations at the HF/6-31G and HF/6-31G* levels are sufficiently accurate to aid in experimental peak assignments. The isotropic 13C chemical shifts X-substituted silatranes at HF/6-31G* level are approximately 4 ppm different from the experimental values. In contrast, the isotropic 15N and 29Si chemical shifts and the chemical shielding tensors are quite sensitive to substituent-induced structural changes. These trends are consistent with those of the experiment. The 15N chemical shift parameters demonstrate a very clear correlation with Si-N distance, especially when we use the polarization function. Changes in anisotropy, 3a as well as in the 15N isotropic chemical shifts are due primarily to changes in the value of a.. But in case of "Si the correlations are not as clean as for the 15N chemical shift.
