Hemispiroalkaplanes: Hydrocarbon Cage Systems with a Pyramidal-Tetracoordinate Carbon Atom and Remarkable Basicity
A new class of saturated hydrocarbons, in which a spiropentane-type unit is bound by a cyclic hydrocarbon, has been investigated by using ab initio molecular orbital calculations at the B3-LYP and MP2 levels. These molecules have been given the trivial name hemispiroalkaplanes. Hemialkaplanes, which are analogous molecules built-up from a neopentane-type unit and a cyclic hydrocarbon, have also been examined. The hemispiroalkaplanes are predicted to contain a pyramidal-tetra-coordinate carbon...[Show more]
