|A series of Ru(III) complexes with 2-substituted beta-diketones was synthesized and analyzed using 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The NMR spectra recorded at several temperatures were used to construct Curie plots and estimate the temperature-independent (orbital) and temperature-dependent (hyperfine) contributions to the NMR shift. Relativistic DFT calculations of electron paramagnetic resonance and NMR parameters were performed to interpret the experimental observations. The effects of individual factors such as basis set, density functional, exact-exchange admixture, and relativity were analyzed and discussed.
