## Abstract

A molecular dynamics study of liquid N,N-dimethyl formamide has been carried out. Orientational correlation functions suggest a stacked antiparallel ordering at short distances $(< 5 \AA)$ and a perpendicular + configuration at intermediate distances. The proposed ordering is in agreement with the recent $^1^3C\hspace{2mm}NMR$ results of Konrat and Sterk and suggests a stronger association of $CH_3(t)$ with 0 than of $CH_3(c)$ with 0. Both the translational and the rotational motions are anisotropic. The diffusion constants for rotation along the different directions are different, in agreement with the NMR results.
