 Title    Electrostatic Properties of Molecules from the X-Ray Charge Density. Application to Deuterated Benzene, 1-Alanine and d,l-Histidine  
 Abstract    It has been shown (Z. Su and P. Coppens, Acta Cryst. A 48, 188 (1992)) that the electrostatic potential, the electric field, and the electric field gradient (EFG) can be expressed in closed forms in terms of the positions and the charge-density parameters of individual atoms, whose aspherical density is described by a pseudoatom model (e.g., N. Hansen and P. Coppens, Acta Cryst. A 34, 909 (1978)). A Fortran program Molprop91 based on this method has been written (Z. Su, State Univ. of New York at Buffalo 1991). The method has been applied to the title compounds. Low-temper-ature X-ray diffraction data of fully deuterated benzene (G. A. and d,/-histidine (N. Li, Ph.D. thesis, State University of New York at Buffalo 1989) were analyzed using the least-squares deformation density refinement program Lsmol90 (a modified version of Molly). Molprop91 was subsequently used to calculate the electrostatic-poten-tial maps in selected sections, and at the nuclear positions. For the latter, the EFGs were also evaluated. The electrostatic potentials were used to fit net atomic charges and estimate the molecular energies. Errors in the derived quantities are given.
