Reactive Molecules: The Neutral Reactive Intermediates in Organic Chemistry

  title={Reactive Molecules: The Neutral Reactive Intermediates in Organic Chemistry},
  author={C. Wentrup},
Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate organic chemistry students, here's an up-to-date, in-depth textbook on the chemistry of neutral reactive intermediates--free radicals, diradicals, carbenes, nitrenes, strained rings, and antiaromatics. Includes numerous tables of physical data and extensive references to present day research in the field. 
Study of photochemical transformations of organic azides by matrix isolation techniques and quantum chemistry
Results of investigations of organic azide photochemistry in inert gas matrices and the most important spectroscopic studies of the last decade, which formed the basis for the modern views on theExpand
Chapter 9 The electrophilicity index in organic chemistry
Abstract We review in this chapter the applications of theoretical scales of global and local electrophilicity to rationalize the reactivity and selectivity for a significant number of reactions inExpand
Remote Functionalization of Carbon-Hydrogen and Carbon-Carbon Bonds by Bare Transition Metal Ions in the Gas Phase
The selective functionaIization of C-H bonds remains one of the major focuses of catalytic and organic chemistry. High selectivity is often achieved by the presence of activating groups which induceExpand
Molecular Magnets: The Synthesis and Characterization of High‐Spin Nitrenes
Abstract Among all C‐, N‐, and O‐centered polyradicals, high‐spin nitrenes possess the largest magnetic anisotropy and are of considerable interest as multi‐level molecular spin systems forExpand
Synthesis, Reactivity, and Characterization of (-Hexacarbocyclic) Manganese Dicarbonyl Complexes with Sulfur and Phosphorus Ligands
Abstract : A series of (eta(5)-pentamethylbenzyl)manganese dicarbonyl phosphite complexes have been synthesized. Manganese-coordinated phosphites react with the exocyclic methylene of the coordinatedExpand
Gas-phase synthesis of charged copper and silver Fischer carbenes from diazomalonates: mechanistic and conformational considerations in metal-mediated wolff rearrangements.
Silver(I) is shown to be more effective in facilitating Wolff rearrangement than copper(I), although both are more effective when compared to spectator charges such as sodium or a fixed quaternary nitrogen. Expand
Beam Experiments as a Means for the Generation of Elusive Sulfur-Containing Molecules
Quite a few molecular species can only be generated in the gas phase because in solution or even in the solid state intermolecular interactions will make them unstable and lead to isomerization,Expand
Effects of α-mono heteroatoms (N vs. P), and β-conjugation on cyclic silylenes
Abstract Following the quest for stable silylenes, we have found high thermodynamic and kinetic viabilities for a series of novel cyclic alkylaminosilylenes [CAASs: including 1 N – 4 N )] over theirExpand
Theoretical Evaluation of the Global and Local Electrophilicity Patterns of Singlet Carbenes
The global electrophilicity pattern of singlet carbenes has been evaluated using an absolute scale based on reactivity indexes and an extension of it to describe the local electrophilicity power ofExpand
Characterization of iminothiosulfine-type ions [HNCS2]+/− and their neutral counterparts by mass spectrometry and computational chemistry☆
Abstract Electron ionization of rhodanine yields iminothiosulfine ions H – N  C – S – S + , 1b + , which readily communicate with the higher energy cyclic isomer H – N  CS 2 + , 1a + . CBS-QB3 andExpand
