Tertiary 1,1-dimethyl-4-alkenyl chloride (1) solvolyzes with significantly reduced secondary beta-deuterium kinetic isotope effect (substrate with two trideuteromethyl groups) and has a lower entropy and enthalpy of activation than the referent saturated analogue 4 (k(H)/k(D) = 1.30 +/- 0.03 vs k(H)/k(D) = 1.79 +/- 0.01; Delta Delta H(++) = -9 kJ mol(-1),(More)
Reaction of trimethylsilylacetylenes Me(3)SiC≡CR with SbF(5) in the solid state was investigated using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy and quantum-mechanical calculations. Two reaction pathways were detected. Replacement of the trimethylsilyl group with SbF(4) produces neutral antimony acetylides F(4)SbC≡CR. Acetylenic bond protonation produces silyl(More)
Thermal and photochemical reactions and the phase transition mechanisms of solid-state monomer-dimer interconversions of p-bromonitrosobenzene were studied on the basis of kinetics data and single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformations. From the crystal structure and packing of p-bromobenzeneazodioxide and the previously determined structure of the(More)
Two cobalt(II) complexes with 3-hydroxypicolinic acid (3-hydroxypyridine-2-carboxylic acid, 3-OHpicH), trans-[Co(3-OHpic)2(py)2] (2) and cis-[Co(3-OHpic)2(4-pic)2] (3) (py=pyridine; 4-pic=4-picoline or 4-methylpyridine), previously synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, are here studied by Raman and mid-infrared spectroscopy with the help from(More)
