The effect of leaving radical on the formation of tetrahydroselenophene by SHi ring closure: an experimental and computational study

Hancock, Amber N; Lobachevsky, Sofia; Haworth, Naomi L; Coote, Michelle; Schiesser, Carl H


Competition kinetic studies augmented with laser-flash photolysis and high-level computational techniques [G3(MP2)-RAD], with [COSMO-RS, SMD] and without solvent correction, provide kinetic parameters for the ring closures of a series of 4-(alkylseleno)butyl radicals 1. At 22 °C rate constants (kc) that lie between 10(4)-10(7) s(-1) were determined experimentally and correlate with expectations based on leaving group ability. Activation energies (Eact) were determined to lie between 10.6 (R =...[Show more]
