Abstract: Solid state 15N NMR chemical shift measurements have been performed on a series of nitro- and amino-substituted nitrogen-containing heterocycles that are of interest as potential new insensitive explosives. Due to low solubilities, many of these compounds are not amenable to study by solution state methods. Theoretical calculations of 15N chemical shift parameters have been performed on the structures of interest and are reported herein. The calculated and experimental values are in good agreement. The use of a model that includes intermolecular effects and allows the proton positions of the nearest neighbors to be optimized leads to the best agreement between calculated and experimental values. The theoretical models accurately predict the effects of nitro and amino substituents on ringnitrogen chemical shifts, explaining a seeming reversal in trend that is noted in the pyridine and pyridine-1-oxide chemical shifts of the highly substituted compounds.
