The m-chloroperoxybenzoate anion (generated from m-CPBA and bases such as K(2)CO(3) or KOH) is a highly efficient nucleophilic epoxidating reagent for strongly deactivated olefins containing two electron-withdrawing groups at the same carbon, under mild conditions which affect neither other double bonds nor electrophilic oxidizable centers such as(More)
This paper presents experimental and theoretical studies of the product energy partitioning associated with the H + CD4 (nu = 0) --> HD + CD3 reaction for the collision energy range 0.5-3.0 eV. The theoretical results are based on quasiclassical trajectories from (1) first principles direct dynamics calculations (B3LYP/6-31G), (2) an empirical surface(More)
The effects of vibrational excitation on the Cl+CD(4) reaction are investigated by preparing three nearly isoenergetic vibrational states: mid R:3000 at 6279.66 cm(-1), |2100> at 6534.20 cm(-1), and |1110> at 6764.24 cm(-1), where |D(1)D(2)D(3)D(4)> identifies the number of vibrational quanta in each C-D oscillator. Vibrational excitation of the(More)
A comparison between theory and experiment for the benchmark H + CD4 --> HD + CD3 abstraction reaction yields a reinterpretation of the reaction mechanism and highlights the unexpected contribution of a stripping mechanism. Whereas the best analytic surface fails to reproduce experiment, a first-principles direct-dynamics (on the fly) treatment is in good(More)
We compare experimental photoloc measurements and quasi-classical trajectory calculations of the integral cross sections, lab-frame speed distributions, and angular distributions associated with the CD3 products of the H + CD4(nu = 0) --> CD3 + HD reaction at collision energies ranging from 0.5 to 3.0 eV. Of the potential energy surfaces (PES) we explored,(More)
Enantiomerically pure pyrrolo[2,1-a]isoquinoline derivatives are obtained by 1,3-dipolar reactions of isoquinolinium azomethine ylides with enantiopure 3-p-tolylsulfinylacrylonitriles, tert-butyl (2E)-4,4-diethoxy-2-p-tolylsulfinylbut-2-enoate, and 5-ethoxy-3-p-tolylsulfinylfuran-2(5H)-ones. Reactions evolve through the anti conformation of the ylide with(More)
[reaction: see text] The reactions of diazomethane and diazoethane with (S)-3-p-tolylsulfinylfuran-2(5H)-one (3) and its 4-methyl derivative (4) have been studied. The sulfinyl group was able to completely control the pi-facial selectivity of all these reactions, which decreased when the polarity of the solvent increased and could be inverted in the(More)
H(35)Cl(v=0,J=0) molecules in a supersonic expansion were excited to the H(35)Cl(v=2,J=1,M=0) state with linearly polarized laser pulses at about 1.7 microm. These rotationally aligned J=1 molecules were then selectively photodissociated with a linearly polarized laser pulse at 220 nm after a time delay, and the velocity-dependent alignment of the(More)
Formal [3+2] cycloadditions of 5-alkoxyfuran-2(5H)-ones 1 and 2 with allenylsulfones 3-5, promoted by different nucleophiles, afford 3-alkoxy-5-arylsulfonyl-3,3 a,6,6 a-tetrahydro-1H-cyclopenta[c]furan-1-ones in good yields with complete control of both regio- and pi-facial selectivity. The incorporation of a sulfinyl group on the furanone ring enhances the(More)
