Homoanomeric effect in the 1,2-dimethoxyethyl radical

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization Publishing
Publication Date


A homoanomeric effect is found to stabilize the 1,2-dimethoxyethyl radical (CH3O-C•H-CH2OCH3) in a conformation in which the singly-occupied orbital at the radical centre is approximately coplanar with the p-type lone pair on the α-oxygen and with the β-C-O bond. The magnitude of this stabilization is predicted to be ∼ 10-12 kJ mol-1 at the G3(MP2)-RAD and DBS-RAD levels of theory.
