TMS is the commonest standard reference for both protons and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The Magnetic Shielding and its Polarizabilities, plus the static polarizability have been calculated for TMS, tetramethyl ammonium cation and 2,2-dimethylpropane. An investigation of continuum solvation effects on these highly symmetrical molecules, whose first surviving electric moment is the octopole, showed interaction with solvent makes little change to these magnetic properties. This small change is however consistent with both the high symmetry of the molecules and the available extensive experimental data for TMS. A rationalization of the signs and magnitudes of A in a sequence of related molecules has been suggested. View Full-Text
