"A reinvestigation of the n2 and n3 modes of 1,4-benzoquinone on the basis of a quantum mechanical harmonic force field"
M. Nonella
Chem. Phys. Lett. 280, 1997, 91-94


Abstract:
The assignment of the modes n2 and n3 of 1,4-benzoquinone has been the topic of many studies. In a recent investigation Zhao, Imahori, Zhan, Mizutani, Sakata and Kitagawa reported an assignment which differs from the previous assignment of Becker. With small variations of selected force constants of a quantum chemically derived force field, we can achieve a good agreement with Becker's data for the n2 and n3 modes of unlabeled 1,4-benzoquinone and its isotopomers 18O2 and d4. In contrast, no satisfactory agreement can be found with frequencies reported by Zhao et al. A systematic investigation of 18O2 and d4 shifts suggest that isotopic shifts of n3 assigned by Zhao et al. are most likely incompatible with the theoretical force field.
