Abstract

A comparison is made of several semi-empirical and non-empirical methods of calculating spin-spin coupling constants. It is concluded that semi-empirical methods are inadequate for accurate calculations, and qualitative and quantitative arguments are given in support of the view that it is essential to allow for electron correlation. A self-consistent-field calculation with configuration interaction gives good agreement with experiment for Jcis and Jtrans in ethylene; the agreement for Jgem is less satisfactory, but analysis of the main contribution to Jgem shows that it is extremely sensitive to the detailed form of the wavefunction.
