NMR parameters are calculated usually for the optimal geometry of given molecule. This point-like geometry however need not necessarily correspond to the statistically significant distribution of atoms/nuclei in the space during the acquisition of NMR signal. When any NMR property involves large variation with respect to local geometry and the amplitudes of respective molecular motions are remarkable, the averaged NMR parameter can differ notably from the parameter calculated for the point-like geometry. Computational approach including anharmonic vibrational corrections is presented on three examples. Vibrational correction of NMR shifts and spin-spin couplings in LAlanine-LAlanine zwiteranion , vibrational corrections of Cross-correlated relaxation rates across the glycosidic bond in DNA nucleotides  and corrections of the NMR spin-spin couplings with respect to rotation in silylated phenols .
