Trends in alkyl substituent effects on nucleophilic reactions of carbonyl compounds: gas phase reactions between amines and the methoxy methyl cation.


The reactions of various amines (RNH(2); R = H, CH(3), C(2)H(5) and i-C(3)H(7)) with the methoxy methyl cation (CH(2)OCH(3)(+)) have been investigated using an FT-ICR mass spectrometer, and the experimental results are supplied with ab initio calculations. The amines show clear trends in their reactivities with variable degree of: 1) nucleophilic… (More)
