There has been much interest in conjugated 1,1endiamines in the past years [2] starting with the pioneering work of Gompper [3]. Stabilisation of betaine structures is best achieved by heteroatom containing fragments like imidazolium (1) and 1,3-dioxanide (2) rings [4]. Recently, Westrup gave an excellent overview of the influence of intramolecular hydrogen bonds on the planarisation of push-pull ethylenes including the betaine compound 3 [5]. Because of our interest in the chemistry of… CONTINUE READING
