A new procedure for quantum-chemical estimates of the constants of isotropic hyperfine coupling (IHFC) with protons using the orbital spin populations calculated in the basis set of symmetrically orthogonalized (according to Löwdin) atomic orbitals is tested taking 16 well-studied simplest π-electron and σ-electron radicals as examples. The most probable reasons for and possible ways of correcting large deviations of calculated IHFC constants from experimental values are considered. The efficiency of the semiempirical MNDORU scheme, which makes it possible to consistently estimate the delocalization and spin-polarization contributions to the constants of IHFC with protons in free radicals, is demonstrated.
