Measurements have been made of the quadrupole couplings of 12N implanted in single crystals of Be and Mg and of 12B implanted in a single crystal of Zn. A comparison of the 12N couplings in Be and Mg suggests that (i) the final stopping sites of the implanted 12N ions are substitutional sites, i.e., the 12N ions occupy metal-ion lattice positions, and (ii) the 12N ions implanted in Be and Mg have the same charge state and quadrupole shielding factor. A procedure is outlined for deducing Q(12N). The 12B couplings in Zn imply the existence of two inequivalent stopping sites. The problems encountered in deducing Q(12B) from couplings in metal hexagonal crystals are discussed.
