An ab Initio Investigation of the Stabilization of Selected β-substituted Ethyl Cations and α- substituted Methyl Cations

Abstract

In this study, we calculate the stabilization of /3-substituted ethyl cations (R = H, Li, BeH, BH,. CH,, NH,, OH, F, Na, MgH, A1H2, SiH,, PH2, SH, CI) and a-substituted methyl cations (R = H, Li, CH,, NH,, OH, F, Na, SiH,, PH,, SH, CI) in order to obtain a relationship between the nature of the substituent and the degree of stabilization of the cation… (More)
