The 13C Dipole-Dipole Relaxation and Pseudorotation of Some Macrocyclic Ethers and a Polyoxalactone
Abstract:The 13C dipole-dipole relaxation times of tetraoxa-, pentaoxa-, hexaoxa-cyclooctadecane, and dioxohexaoxacyclooctadecane were obtained in acetone-d6 by the aid of the inversion recovery method at 15.0 MHz. The dependence of dipolar relaxation time on the molecular size and the conformational aspects of cyclo-polyoxa molecules, (CH2OCH2)n, are discussed from the point of view of the cation-binding properties of such compounds. It is concluded that the T 1 DD values reflect the rate of pseudorotation and therefore the flexible nature of the ring which causes the preference of the cation binding; accordingly, the rigidity determines the degree of stability of ion-molecule complexes.
