The effect of substituents on the syn-anti conformer ratio in naphthyl-based imidazolinium salts and their corresponding N-heterocyclic carbenes


Gatti, M; Wu, L; Drinkel, E; Gaggia, F; Blumentritt, S; Linden, A; Dorta, R (2011). The effect of substituents on the syn-anti conformer ratio in naphthyl-based imidazolinium salts and their corresponding N-heterocyclic carbenes. ARKIVOC, 2011(6):176-198.

Abstract

Eight new N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) featuring substituted naphthyl side chains were
synthesized. These molecules are present in solution as a stable mixture of anti and syn
conformers. Through careful tuning of the substituents on position 2 and 2,7 of the naphthyl
moieties, it was possible to synthesize molecules that display a strong preference for the anti
conformation (up to 95:5). This will greatly facilitate their optimized use as single isomeric
ligands in metal-catalysis and as organocatalysts.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
