A theoretical study on nBuLi/lithium aminoalkoxide aggregation in hexane and THF.

Abstract

Theoretical calculations on aggregation of nBuLi/lithium aminoalkoxide superbases, such as nBuLi/LiDMAE (LiDMAE = Me(2)N(CH(2))(2)OLi) and nBuLi/LiPM (LiPM = Li-N-methyl-2-pyrrolidine methoxide) in gas phase and solution are reported. The combination of equimolar amounts of each component in hexane induced unusual reactivity of the resulting superbase… (More)
