Abstract [en]

This thesis concerns the study of reaction mechanisms by means of kinetic isotope effects (KIEs). Studies of the nucleophilic bimolecular substitution (SN2) reaction had the dual purpose of improving our fundamental understanding of molecular reactivity and assessing the ability of kinetic isotope effects to serve as mechanistic tools. The transition state of the SN2 reaction between a cyanide ion and ethyl chloride in tetrahydrofuran was found to be reactant like and only slightly tighter than has been found previously for the same reaction in dimethyl sulphoxide. One conclusion was that the transition-state structure in this reaction was predicted fairly well by the theoretical calculations, even without solvent modelling. The SN2 reactions between cyanide ions and para-substituted benzyl chlorides were found to have reactant-like transition states, of which the Cα-Cl bond was most influenced by the para-substitution. Theoretical calculations indicated that the chlorine KIEs could be used as probes of the substituent effect on the Cα-Cl bond if bond fission was not too advanced in the transition state. Furthermore, the nucleophile carbon 11C/14C KIEs were determined for the reactions between cyanide ions and various ethyl substrates in dimethyl sulphoxide.

Precision conductometry was employed to estimate the aggregation status of tetrabutylammonium cyanide in tetrahydrofuran and in dimethyl sulphoxide, which is of interest as tetrabutylammonium cyanide is frequently used as the nucleophilic reagent in mechanistic investigations and synthetic reactions. The tendency for ion-pair formation was found to be very slight, significant, and very strong in dimethyl sulphoxide, water, and tetrahydrofuran, respectively.

The nitrogen kinetic isotope effect on monoamine oxidase B catalysed deamination of benzylamine was determined in an attempt to obtain conclusive evidence regarding the mechanism of the oxidation. Monoamine oxidase is an important drug target in connection with the treatment of, for example, depression and Parkinson’s disease, and knowledge on how the enzyme effects catalysis would facilitate the design of highly selective and efficient inhibitors.

Abstract [en]

Chlorine leaving group k(35)/k(37), nucleophile carbon k(11)/k(14), and secondary alpha-deuterium [(k(H)/k(D))(alpha)] kinetic isotope effects (KIEs) have been measured for the S(N)2 reactions between para-substituted benzyl chlorides and tetrabutylammonium cyanide in tetrahydrofuran at 20 degrees C to determine whether these isotope effects can be used to determine the substituent effect on the structure of the transition state. The secondary alpha-deuterium KIEs indicate that the transition states for these reactions are unsymmetric. The theoretical calculations at the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVDZ level of theory support this conclusion; i.e., they suggest that the transition states for these reactions are unsymmetric with a long NC-C-alpha and reasonably short C-alpha-Cl bonds. The chlorine isotope effects suggest that these KIEs can be used to determine the substituent effects on transition state structure with the KIE decreasing when a more electron-withdrawing para-substituent is present. This conclusion is supported by theoretical calculations. The nucleophile carbon k(11)/k(14) KIEs for these reactions, however, do not change significantly with substituent and, therefore, do not appear to be useful for determining how the NC-C-alpha transition-state bond changes with substituent. The theoretical calculations indicate that the NC-C-alpha bond also shortens as a more electron-withdrawing substituent is placed on the benzene ring of the substrate but that the changes in the NC-C-alpha transition-state bond with substituent are very small and may not be measurable. The results also show that using leaving group and nucleophile carbon KIEs to determine the substituent effect on transition-state structure is more complicated than previously thought. The implication of using both chlorine leaving group and nucleophile carbon KIEs to determine the substituent effect on transition-state structure is discussed.
