ABSTRACT The solid phase FTIR and FT-Raman spectra of 4-butyl benzoic acid (4-BBA) have been recorded in the regions 400-4000 and 50-4000cm(-1), respectively. The spectra were interpreted in terms of fundamentals modes, combination and overtone bands. The structure of the molecule was optimized and the structural characteristics were determined by density functional theory (DFT) using B3LYP method with 6-311++G(d,p) as basis set. The vibrational frequencies were calculated for monomer and dimer by DFT method and were compared with the experimental frequencies, which yield good agreement between observed and calculated frequencies. The infrared and Raman spectra were also predicted from the calculated intensities. (13)C and (1)H NMR spectra were recorded and (13)C and (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance chemical shifts of the molecule were calculated using the gauge independent atomic orbital (GIAO) method. UV-visible spectrum of the compound was recorded in the region 200-400nm and the electronic properties HOMO and LUMO energies were measured by time-dependent TD-DFT approach. The geometric parameters, energies, harmonic vibrational frequencies, IR intensities, Raman intensities, chemical shifts and absorption wavelengths were compared with the available experimental data of the molecule.

    ABSTRACT: Tetrapropylammoniumchloride was used as a ligand for the synthesis of the new organic-inorganic compound bis-tetrapropylammoniumhexachlorostannate. Vibrational study in the solid state was performed by FT-IR of the free Tetrapropylammoniumchloride ligand (TPACL) and by FT-IR and FT-Raman spectroscopies of the [N(C3H7)4]2SnCl6 compound. The comparative analysis of the Infrared spectra of the title compound with that of the free ligand was discussed. The structure of the [N(C3H7)4]2SnCl6 compound was optimized by density functional theory (DFT) using B3LYP method and shows that the calculated values obtained by B3LYP/LanL2MB basis are in much better agreement with the experimental data than those obtained by B3LYP/LanL2DZ. The vibrational frequencies were evaluated using density functional theory (DFT) with the standard B3LYP/LanL2MB basis, and were scaled using various scale factors. Root mean square (RMS) value was calculated and the small difference between experimental and calculated modes has been interpreted by intermolecular interactions in the crystal.

    ABSTRACT: 3,5-Dinitro-2-(2-phenylhydrazinyl)pyridine and its methyl derivatives: 4-methyl-3,5-dinitro-2-(2-phenylhydrazinyl)pyridine and 6-methyl-3,5-dinitro-2-(2-phenylhydrazinyl)pyridine were synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR and 13C NMR. Calculations were also performed where the above molecules were optimized using the methods of density functional theory (DFT) with 6-31G(d,p) and 6-311G(d,p) basis sets. For all molecules studied, the lowest energy was obtained using the 6-311G(d,p) basis set. The GIAO/DFT (Gauge Invariant Atomic Orbitals/Density Functional Theory) calculations on the 6-311G and 6-311++G and 6-311G** basis sets were carried out to determine proton and carbon chemical shifts and to find they were close to the experimental values.It has been also found that intramolecular hydrogen bonding exists between hydrogen atom (in 2-NH group) and oxygen atom (pyridine-3-NO2). Moreover, resonances between pyridine ring and electron withdrawing 3-nitro group as well between that ring and the lone electron pair of NH group favor a co-planarity of the structure; this means a chelate ring created by above-mentioned intramolecular hydrogen bond is almost co-planar with pyridine ring.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, computational studies were carried out on anastrozole and letrozole, chemotherapy drugs used against breast cancer. Optimization and frequency calculations were performed at B3LYP/6-31G (d) basis set and vibrational frequencies were assignment. Single point calculations were performed at DFT method with a hybrid functional B3LYP/6-311G (d, p) basis set. Theoretical NMR data were obtained at DFT method with a hybrid functional B3LYP/6-311G++ (2d, p) with GIAO (Gauge-Independent Atomic Orbital). IEF-PCM method was used as solvation model. NBO calculations were performed by the same basis set and calculation method with single point calculation. Global and localized reactivity parameters; fukui indices (f) chemical hardness (η), softness (S), chemical potential (μ), electronegativity (χ) and electrophilicity index (ω) were calculated. All computational parameters were compared with the experimental results obtained from the literature.
