Unusual intermolecular "through-space" j couplings in p-se heterocycles.


Solid-state NMR spectra of new P-Se heterocycles based on peri-substituted naphthalene motifs show the presence of unusual J couplings between Se and P. These couplings are between atoms in adjacent molecules and occur "through space", rather than through conventional covalent bonds. Experimental measurements are supported by relativistic DFT calculations… (More)
