Theoretical studies of isotope effects pertinent to solvolysis mechanisms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Secondary α-D and β-D6 equilibrium isotope effects are calculated by ab initio MO methods for gas-phase heterolyses of a range of 2-propyl substrates; an anomalous trend in the β-D6 effects with variation of the leaving group is accounted for by a model involving hyperconjugative and inductive contributions.
