|Title:||Conformational and stereoelectronic investigation of chloromethyl methyl sulfide and its sulfinyl and sulfonyl analogs|
|Abstract:||The rotational equilibria of some sulfur-containing model compounds were theoretically determined, and a rationalization of the effects responsible for the results obtained is given. Experimental approaches, namely NMR and infrared, were also used to show the gauche (Cl-C-S-CH3 fragment) prevalence for these compounds and allowed us to elucidate the orbital interactions involved in such systems. The gauche rotamer of the sulfide is about 3.2 kcal mol(-1) more stable than anti in the gas phase. For the sulfinyl derivative the relative energies for the most stable rotamers are 0.0, 1.0 and 1.7 kcal mol(-1), corresponding to gauche-1 (C-Cl antiperiplanar to S=O), gauche-2 (C-Cl antiperiplanar to lone pair) and anti. The calculated energy difference (anti-gauche) between the sulfonyl rotamers is 2.6 kcal mol(-1). Natural bond orbital analysis indicated that the anomeric effect (n(S) -> sigma*(C-Cl)) plays the main role in stabilization of gauche in the sulfide compound, and that other important hyperconjugative interactions also occur for the remaining compounds.
