Inequivalence of substitution pairs in hydroxynaphthaldehyde: A theoretical measurement by intramolecular hydrogen bond strength, aromaticity, and excited-state intramolecular proton transfer reaction

Abstract

The inequivalence of substitution pair positions of naphthalene ring has been investigated by a theoretical measurement of hydrogen bond strength, aromaticity, and excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) reaction as the tools in three substituted naphthalene compounds viz 1-hydroxy-2-naphthaldehyde (HN12), 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde (HN21), and… (More)
