Abstract :

In this work, we present a new GIAO-HDFT universal scaling factor (mPW1PW91/3-21G//PM7(I)) and a comparative study in which its ability to predict NMR 13C chemical shifts (�?´) with high cost-effectiveness ratio is investigated. A set of 22 small molecules providing 27 different 13C �?´ determined in the gas phase was used for all scaling factors protocols: B3PW91/cc-pVDZ//B3PW91/cc-pVDZ (II), B3PW91/cc-pVTZ//B3PW91/cc-pVDZ (III), B3LYP/6- 311+(2d,p)// B3LYP/6-31G(d) (IV), mPW1PW91/6-31G(d)//PM7(V), mPW1PW91/6-31G(d)//mPW1PW91/6-31G(d) (VI). Geometry optimizations were performed in gas phase. HDFT and semi-empirical calculations were carried out using Gaussian09 and MOPAC software, respectively. Geometries were verified as local minima by vibrational frequencies calculations. Two-electron integrals and their derivatives were calculated using an ultrafine grid option (Int=Ultrafine). NMR �?´ were computed using the GIAO method and are given relative to that of TMS calculated at the same level of theory. Despite the calculation approximations the �?´ calculated at the GIAO- mPW1PW91/3-21G//PM7 using a simple relationship (�?´scal=1.14 �?´calcâ�?�?4.7, where �?´calc and �?´scal are calculated and the linearly scaled values of the 13C �?´, respectively) were able to yield MAD and RMS errors as small as those obtained with other GIAO-HDFT with bigger basis sets (protocols (II) to (VI)). The robustness of the new protocol and its applicability to practical problems was evaluated by the calculation of the �?´ for two natural compounds with synthesis, biological and therapeutic interest: tryptanthrin (indolo[2,1- b]quinazoline-6,12-dione) and (-)-loliolide (7aR)-6-hydroxy- 4,4,7a- trimethyl-6,7-dihydro-5H-1-benzofuran-2-one. For both compound, the six protocols presented good agreement with experimental data. Moreover, for the second compound, the new protocol performs even better than the five others. In conclusion, GIAO-mPW1PW91/3- 21G//PM7 linear regression obtained by using the experimental and the calculated data, is a very attractive tool as an alternative to more computationally demanding approaches, which are usually applied in order to achieve 13C NMR �?´ calculations.
