The main aim of this work is to compare the transmission mechanisms for the Fermi contact term of spin-spin couplings, SSCCs, in series 1-X-bicyclo[1.1.1]-pentane, (1), and 1-X-3-methylbicyclo[1.1.1]pentane, (2), and from that comparison to gain insight into some subtle aspects of the FC transmission. To this end, 18 members of the latter series were(More)
(13)C chemical shifts were measured for 18 1-X,3-CH(3)-bicyclo[1.1.1]pentanes and the corresponding (13)C substituent chemical shifts (SCSs) were compared with those measured previously for the corresponding 1-X-bicyclo[1.1.1]pentanes. DFT-B3LYP calculations of GIAO magnetic shielding constants and of natural bond orbitals were carried out in order to gain(More)
A study of the cyclization of alpha-sulfenyl-, alpha-sulfinyl-, and alpha-sulfonyl-5-hexenyl and 5-methyl-5-hexenyl radicals reveals a unique contrast in the mode of ring closure of the radicals. In the case of the 5-hexenyl radicals, the sulfinyl-substituted species displays unexpected regioselectivity relative to its analogues. Thus, while the alpha-S-(More)
Ring closure of the alpha-substituted radicals 4 (X = S, SO(2)) is observed to be irreversible and to lead to significant amounts of the product of 6-endo cyclization. Indeed, reduction of the sulfonyl-based radical 4 (X = SO(2)), in which regioselectivity is believed to be controlled by a combination of both steric and FMO interactions, is found to provide(More)
The structures of the bicyclo[n.l.l]alkylium cations (2), n = 1-3, have been determined by using various molecular orbital methods. We find that the AM1 and MNDO semiempirical molecular orbital methods give geometries contrary to chemical expectation. Surprisingly, MIND0/3 geometries correlate most closely with the RHF/6-31G* (ab initio) results for 2a and(More)
The 2-(3-methylenepiperidinyl)ethyl radical (6) displays considerable reluctance to ring-closure under conditions which its carbocyclic analog, the 2-(3-methylenecyclohexyl)ethyl radical (2), cyclizes essentially completely. Molecular mechanics calculations suggest that the increased activation barrier associated with ring-closure of 6 is the result of a(More)
Hyperconjugative and electrostatic interactions effects on 1J(CH) spin-spin coupling constants (SSCCs) are critically studied from both theoretical and experimental points of view. A qualitative model is used to predict how the former affect such SSCCs, while electrostatic interactions are modeled with a point charge placed in the vicinity of the(More)
In the present work, the relationship between the large substituent 3 Ž . w x effects on J C H in 1-X-3-M-bicyclo 1.1.1 pentanes, I, and the polarizability of 1 the bridgehead C —M bond is investigated. The existence of such a relationship 3 a is suggested by the finding that the effect of an electronegative substituent X on 3 Ž . Ž . J C M couplings in I M(More)
Ring-closure of the 2,2-dimethyl-2-azonia-5-hexenyl radical (4) proceeds smoothly and efficiently to give the 5-exo isomer essentially quantitatively, in accordance with predictions based on MP4SDTQ/6-31G ab initio calculations on the thermodynamic stability of alpha-ammonio radicals. The corresponding 5-hexynyl radical species 15 and its 6-phenyl(More)
