A theoretical study of the cycloaddition between cyclopentadiene and allylideneammonium cation: An AM1 study

The Diels-Alder reaction between cyclopentadiene and allylideneammonium cation has been studied by means of AMI semiempirical method. Allylideneammonium cation can add to cyclopentadiene via its either C=C or C=N bond. For each cycloaddition, four reactive channels have been characterized corresponding to the endo-s-trans, endo-s-cis, exo-s-trans and exo-s-cis approach modes. The results indicate that C=C bond of allylideneammonium cation is more reactive as dienophile than its C=N bond in reaction with cyclopentadiene and the reaction takes place along a stepwise mechanism. The first and rate-limiting step is the nucleophilic attack of cyclopentadiene to the beta-carbon atom of the imminium ion to give an intermediate cation, and the second step is associated to the ring closure of this intermediate cation to afford the final cycloadduct. The transition structures, energetic aspects and other factors controlling the reaction outcome are discussed as well.

An investigation of the formation mechanism of allene or alkyne in the 6,7-benzobicyclo[3,2.1]octane system by deuterium labeling experiments
Taskesenligil, Y; Tumer, F; Kazaz, C; Balcı, Metin (1999-01-01)
In order to reveal the real intermediate in the base-promoted reaction of 1, 3-bromo-4,4-dideuterio-6,7-benaobicyclo[3.2.1]octa-2,6-diene 10 was synthesized and its HBr elimination reaction studied. Reaction of 10 with potassium tert-butoxide yielded butoxyl ether 18 in which proton-deuterium exchange has occured.

The performance of both free and solid supported urease for the enzymatic hydrolysis of urea was studied. Kinetic analysis of reaction rate data shows that the kinetic data were consistent with the proposed model. Statistical tests validated the model. Despite the deactivation of ureases, the immobilized enzyme could be the choice for a technological process aiming at the detoxification of blood in haemoperfusion columns.
1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of C-60 with 3-phenyl-phthalazinium-1-olate. A theoretical study
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2002-07-26)
1,3-Dipolar cycloaddition products of the reaction between C-60 and 1-phenyl-phthalazinium-1-olate were studied within the framework of AM1(RHF) level. The reactions involving the double bond between two hexagons and a hexagon and a pentagon, as well as the cycloaddition products followed by disrotatory (sigma)2(s) + (pi)4(s) electrocyclic ring openings were considered. Also for some of the structures calculated H-1 NMR spectra at the level of TNDO/2 method were presented.
A novel one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted 1,2,4-oxadiazoles
Zora, Metin; Kelgokmen, YILMAZ (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-01)
One-pot synthesis of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles via the reaction between 3-ferrocenylpropynal and amidoximes is described. 3-Ferrocenylpropynal reacts with a variety of amidoximes in the presence of KOH in refluxing dioxane to afford a broad range of 5-ferrocenyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole derivatives. The reaction first produces the corresponding conjugate addition product which, upon cyclization and rearrangement, yields the targeted 1,2,4-oxadiazole. The reaction appears to be general for a diversity of amidox...
A theoretical study on the strong codimer of C-60 and Si-60, C58Si58
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2001-07-09)
The strong codimer Of C-60 and Si-60 that is C58Si58 is considered for AM1 type semiempirical molecular orbital treatment at the, restricted Hartree-Fock level. The results reveal that C58Si58 structure should be highly endothermic but a stable molecule. The structure is expected to have some nonlinear properties.
