In the combined analysis of gas-phase electron-diffraction scattering data, rotation constants and dipolar coupling constants from NMR experiments in liquid crystal solvents, not only are high-accuracy molecular structures of 1,2- and 1,3-difluorobenzene obtained, but the anisotropic components of some of the CF and FF indirect couplings have been deduced directly from the experimental data. The benefits of combined analyses of data from several different experimental techniques, and factors influencing the accuracy of structures determined in this way, are discussed.
- Molecular structure
- Electron diffraction
- Liquid crystal NMR
- Anisotropy of indirect couplings
