Out-basicity of 1,8-bis(dimethylamino)naphthalene: the experimental and theoretical challenge.


A possibility of non-conventional two-step protonation of 1,8-bis(dimethylamino)naphthalene (proton sponge) is discussed. Unlike the generally accepted mechanism, involving relatively slow direct penetration of a proton into the cleft between the peri-NMe2 groups, it consists of the rapid addition of a proton to the out-inverted NMe2 group with the… (More)
