This thesis examines three approximations that significantly
reduce the computational time of theoretical NMR shielding
calculations for large molecules, whilst largely retaining the
accuracy of the parent method: fragmentation, locally dense basis
sets and composite methods.
For fragmentation it is established that Level 4 fragments
reliably reproduce full molecule shieldings, when hydrogen bonds
are treated as single bonds, and long range through...[Show more]
