Abstract:

An investigation employing the ab initio molecular orbital (MO) and density functional theory (DFT) methods to calculate structural optimization and conformational interconversion pathways for the two diastereoisomeric forms, (±) and meso configurations of 1,3,7,9-tetraphospha-cyclododeca-1,2,7,8-tetraene (1) was undertaken. Two axial symmetrical conformations are found for (±)-1 configuration. (±)-1-TB axial symmetrical form is found to be about 0.35 and 0.99 kcal mol-1 more stable than (±)-1-Crown axial symmetrical conformation, as calculated by HF/6-31G*//HF/6-31G* and B3LYP/6-31G*//HF/6-31G* levels of theory, respectively. The unsymmetrical meso-1-TBCC form is found to be the most stable geometry, among the various conformations of meso-1 configuration. HF/6-31G*//HF/6-31G* and B3LYP/6-31G*//HF/6-31G* results showed that between the two most stable conformations of (±) and meso configurations, (±)-1-TB is more stable than meso-1-TBCC by about 3.35 and 2.43 kcal mol-1, respectively. In addition, MP2/6-31G* and B3LYP/6-311+G** results showed that the (±)-1-TB form is about 1.10 and 2.36 kcal mol-1 more stable than the meso-1-TBCC form. Further, NBO results revealed that in the most stable form of meso configuration (meso-1-TBCC), the sum of the * allenic antibonding orbital occupancies (Σ  *occupancy) is greater than dl configuration ((±)-1-TB). Also, NBO results indicated that in the (±)-1-TB conformer, the sum of  and  allenic moieties bonding orbital deviations (Σ  dev+Σ  dev) from their normal values, is lower than in the meso-1-TBCC form.
