An experimental study of the nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) line shape of p-chloro nitrobenzene in the temperature range 77-150 K is reported. The molecules of p-ClC[SUB6]H[SUB4]NO[SUB2] in the solid phase are arranged following an orientationally disordered pattern. The experimental NQR spectra at several temperatures are unusually broad for a molecular crystal and show a structure of peaks. Our measurements suggested that the line broadening is due to a static distribution of disordered molecules. In order to explain the nontypical resonance frequency dispersion, a simulation of the NQR line shapes is carried on. The model for the simulated crystal assumes that each molecule is an electric dipole and that the crystal is a disordered binary alloy of dipoles having two possible orientations. By calculating the intermolecular contribution to the electric field gradient (EFG) at the resonant nuclei sites, we get the expected EFG distribution in the sample. The approach we propose here explicitly involves the symmetry of the lattice.

    We demonstrate, theoretically and experimentally, that the irradiation of a powder sample containing spin-1 nuclei by two of the three characteristic nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) frequencies can result in several echo signals at the third NQR frequency. One of these echoes, the principal...

    We introduce a new two-dimensional nuclear quadrupole resonance experiment, in which the first time period (t1) is the duration of the radiofrequency exciting pulse; and the second (t2) is the normal free precession of a quadrupolar nucleus at zero field. After double Fourier transformation, the...

    The zeroth-order regular approximation (ZORA) is used for the evaluation of the electric field gradient, and hence nuclear quadrupole coupling constants, in some closed shell molecules. It is shown that for valence orbitals the ZORA-4 electron density, which includes a small component density...
