Abstract [en]

The electric field gradient components for the tin nucleus of 34 tin compounds of experimentally known structures and Sn-119 Mossbauer spectroscopy parameters were computed at the scalar relativistic density functional theory level of approximation. The theoretical values of the electric field gradient components were used to determine a quantity, V, which is proportional to the nuclear quadrupole splitting parameter (Delta E). In a subsequent linear regression analysis the effective nuclear quadrupole moment, Q, was evaluated. The value of (11.9 +/- 0.1) fm(2) is a significant improvement over the non-relativistic result of (15.2 +/- 4.4) fm(2) and is in agreement with the experimental value of (10.9 +/- 0.8) fm(2). The average mean square error Delta E-calcd-Delta E-exptl = +/- 0.3 mm s(-1) is a factor of two smaller than in the non-relativistic case. Thus, the approach has a quality which provides accurate support for the structure interpretation by Sn-119 spectroscopy. It was noted that geometry optimization at the relativistic level does not significantly increase the quality of the results compared with non-relativistic optimized structures. The accuracy in the approach called on us to consider the singlet-triplet state nature of the electronic structure of one of the investigated compounds.
