We have used density functional theory methods to investigate the solid-state "magic-angle" spinning (MAS) NMR and single-crystal NMR/ENDOR spectra of paramagnetic organometallic complexes and metalloporphyrins. The solid-state MAS NMR chemical shifts (including both diamagnetic and hyperfine contributions) are predicted with a slope of 1.007 and an R2 = 0.967, corresponding to a 28 ppm (or 6.3%) error over the entire 442 ppm range. Single-crystal ENDOR hyperfine values, including both isotropic Fermi contact and dipolar couplings, are predicted with a slope of 1.009 and an R2 = 0.998, corresponding to a 0.93 MHz (or 1.2%) error over the entire 78.37 MHz range. In addition, single-crystal NMR shifts (including both hyperfine terms) are predicted with an R2 = 0.961. The ability to compute solid-state MAS NMR and single-crystal NMR/ENDOR data should facilitate the use of these techniques in investigating paramagnetic metal complexes and should be of particular use in studying paramagnetic metalloproteins, where structures are less accurately known.
