Chlorine-35 nuclear quadrupole resonance studies in 2,3- and 3,5-dichloroanisoles
The temperature variation of the 35Cl n.q.r. frequencies in 3,5- and 2,3- dichloroanisoles has been reported here. Both compounds show two lines each, and these have been assigned to the two chlorines in the same molecule with the help of the additive model for the substituent effect. The temperature dependence has been analysed in terms of Bayer–Kushida–Brown model. The torsional frequencies and their temperature dependence have been calculated numerically under a two-mode approximation. On comparing the results in 3,5-dichloroanisole with those in 3,5-dichlorophenol it can be seen that they show similar behaviour owing to the absence of hydrogen bonding in both.
