The ligand-field density functional theory (LF-DFT) approach is employed for calculations of the ⁵⁹Co nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) shielding tensor of all four diastereoisomers (λλλ, λλδ, λδδ, and δδδ) of tris(1,2-ethanediamine) cobalt(III) complex ion, [Co(en)₃]³⁺. The obtained values split into two groups according to the point group of the diastereoisomers. The... Plus

    Summary
    The ligand-field density functional theory (LF-DFT) approach is employed for calculations of the ⁵⁹Co nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) shielding tensor of all four diastereoisomers (λλλ, λλδ, λδδ, and δδδ) of tris(1,2-ethanediamine) cobalt(III) complex ion, [Co(en)₃]³⁺. The obtained values split into two groups according to the point group of the diastereoisomers. The influence of the individual ring conformation on the ⁵⁹Co NMR shielding tensor is small. Comparisons with results obtained with conventional DFT and experimental values are given. The good agreement between calculated and experimental values demonstrates the validity of LF-DFT for calculating the shielding tensor for transition-metal complexes.
