A strained 1-phenyl-2,3-dimethylphosphirene undergoes anionic ring-opening polymerization upon initiation with n-butyl lithium at ambient temperature to yield polyvinylenephosphine, an unsaturated organophosphorus polymer.
Geminal frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) are expected to exhibit increased reactivity when the donor and acceptor sites are perfectly aligned. This is shown for reactions of the nonfluorinated FLP tBu(2)PCH(2)BPh(2) with H(2), CO(2), and isocyanates and supported computationally.
In the title compound, (C11H14N)[AlCl4], the nitrilium (systematic name: 2,2-dimethyl-N-phenyl-propane-nitrilium) ion adopts a slightly distorted linear configuration [C-N C = 178.87 (16) and N C-C = 179.13 (17)°]. In the crystal, while there are no inter-molecular hydrogen bonds, pairs of nitrilium ions are linked through π-π inter-actions [inter-centroid… (More)
In the title compound, [Cu(C(2)H(3)O(2))(2)(C(6)H(16)N(2))], the Cu(II) atom is coordinated by two N atoms from the chelating N,N,N',N'-tetra-methyl-ethane-1,2-diamine ligand and two O atoms from two acetate anions in a distorted square-planar geometry. In addition, there are longer contacts between Cu and the second O atom of each acetate ligand, which… (More)
A comprehensive theoretical treatment is presented for the electronic excitation spectra of ca. 50 different mono-, di-, and tetrasubstituted naphthalenediimides (NDI) using time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) at ZORA-CAM-B3LYP/TZ2P//ZORA-BP86/TZ2P with COSMO for simulating the effect of dichloromethane (DCM) solution. The substituents -XHn are… (More)
The valence isomerization of the all-carbon and heteroelement analogues of cyclohepta-1,3,5-triene into the corresponding bicyclo[4.1.0]hepta-2,4-dienes is reviewed to show the impact of the heteroatom on the stability of both valence isomers. The focus is on the parent systems and their synthetic applications.
Herein, we describe the synthesis, structural characterization, and synthetic use as an advanced intermediate of a cross-stapled alkene-bridged hexapeptide to mimic the DE-ring of the lantibiotic nisin. The linear precursor was cyclized by ring-closing metathesis to give the correctly folded bicyclic hexapeptide in a single step, and the four individual… (More)
To maintain the integrity of the genome, multiple DNA repair systems exist to repair damaged DNA. Recognition of altered DNA, including bulky adducts, pyrimidine dimers and interstrand crosslinks (ICL), partially depends on proteins containing helix-hairpin-helix (HhH) domains. To understand how ICL is specifically recognized by the Fanconi anemia proteins… (More)
The rearrangements for 2-phospha-4-silabicyclo[1.1.0]butane, analogous to the valence isomerization of the hydrocarbons bicyclobutane, 1,3-butadiene, and cyclobutene, were studied at the (U)QCISD(T)/6-311+G**//(U)QCISD/6-31G* level of theory. The monocyclic 1,2-dihydro-1,2-phosphasiletes are shown to be the thermodynamically preferred product, in contrast… (More)
