Superacid-Promoted Ionization of Alkanes Without Carbonium Ion Formation: A Density Functional Theory Study
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Chemistry, Department of Chemistry - BMC, Synthetical Organic Chemistry.

Abstract [en]

The carbonium ion has been suggested to be the intermediate in superacid-promoted reactions (SbF5-HF) such as hydrogen-deuterium exchange and in the electrophilic C-H cleavage into hydrogen and the carbenium ion. In this study, the superacid-promoted C-H cleavage into hydrogen and the carbenium ion was studied using density functional theory (B3LYP and M062X) and ab initio methods (MP2 and CCSD). The calculations suggest that the superacid-promoted C-H cleavage proceeds via a concerted transition state leading to hydrogen (H-2) and the carbenium ion without the formation of the elusive carbonium ion. The reactivity for the superacid promoted C-H cleavage decreases upon going from isobutane (tertiary) > propane (secondary) > isobutane (primary) > propane (primary) > ethane >> methane.
