Remarks on GIAO-DFT predictions of 13C chemical shifts.

Predicting (13)C chemical shifts by GIAO-DFT calculations appears to be more accurate than frequently expected provided that: (a) the comparison between experimental and theoretical data is performed using the linear regression method, (b) a sufficiently high level of theory [e.g. B3LYP/6-311 + + G(2d,p)//B3LYP/6-311 + + G(2d,p) or PBE1PBE/6-311 + G(2df,p… CONTINUE READING
