We report molecular dynamics simulations of the acetonitrile clathrate of hydroquinone, with a focus on the dynamics of acetonitrile methyl groups. There are three inequivalent acetonitrile molecules in the unit cell, one with its dipole parallel to the c-axis, and the other two antiparallel. Although these three guest molecules have previously been found to exhibit two slightly different frequencies of rotation over a wide range of temperatures, the frequencies could not be assigned to...[Show more]
