Application to One-Pot Oligosaccharide Synthesis, Organic Letters, 10.1021/acs.orglett.9b00220, 21, 4, 1221-1225, 2019.02, The use of 2-O-alkoxymethyl groups as effective stereodirecting substituents for the construction of 1,2-trans glycosidic linkages is reported. The observed stereoselectivity arises from the intramolecular formation of a five-membered cyclic architecture between the 2-O-alkoxymethyl substituent and the oxocarbenium ion, which provides the expected facial selectivity. Furthermore, the observed stereocontrol and the extremely high reactivity of 2-O-alkoxymethyl-protected donors allowed development of a one-pot sequential glycosylation strategy that should become a powerful tool for the assembly of oligosaccharides..

negative hyperconjugation, Journal of Physical Organic Chemistry, 10.1002/poc.3721, 31, 1, 2018.01, Aryl-substituted polyfluorinated carbanions, ArCHRf where Rf = CF3 (1), C2F5 (2), i-C3F7 (3), and t-C4F9 (4), were analyzed by means of the natural bond orbital (NBO) theory at the B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) computational level. A lone pair NBO at the formal anionic center carbon (Cα) was not found in the Lewis structure. Instead, significant donor/acceptor NBO interactions between π(Cα-C1) and σ*(Cβ-F) or σ*(Cβ-Cγ) were observed for 1, 2, 3a (strong electron-withdrawing substituent, from p-CF3 to p-NO2), and 4. Their second-order donor/acceptor perturbation interaction energy, E(2), values decreased with the increase of the stability of carbanions. A larger E(2) value corresponds to longer Cβ-F and Cβ-Cγ bonds and a shorter Cα-Cβ bond, indicating that the E(2) values can be associated with the negative hyperconjugation of the Cβ-F and Cβ-Cγ bonds. In accordance with this, the E(2) values for π(Cα-C1) → σ*(Cβ-F) were linearly correlated with the ΔGo β-F values (an empirical measure of β-fluorine negative hyperconjugation obtained from an increased acidity). In 3b (weak electron-withdrawing substituents, from H to m-NO2) very large E(2) values for LP(Fβ) → π*(Cα-Cβ) were obtained. This was attributed to the Cβ-F bond cleavage and the Cα-Cβ double bond formation in the Lewis structure that is caused by the extremely strong negative hyperconjugation of the Cβ-F bond..

A natural bond orbital analysis, Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 10.1246/bcsj.20160353, 90, 3, 289-297, 2017.01, Natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis has been applied to various polyfluorinated carbanions. The E(2)[LP(Cα)→σ∗(Cβ-F) or σ∗(Cβ-Cγ)] values that are interaction energies between a lone pair NBO at the anionic center carbon and the σ∗(Cβ-F) or σ∗(Cβ-Cγ) NBO increased with the corresponding Cβ-F or Cβ-Cγ bond distances, respectively, being consistent with the molecular orbital theory on negative hyperconjugation. The total E(2) values for the interactions of a lone pair orbital with all σ∗(Cβ-F) and σ∗(Cβ-Cγ) orbitals were linearly correlated with gas-phase acidities of the corresponding alkanes, giving two lines for the carbanions having no β-fluorine atom and for the primary and secondary carbanions having β-fluorine atoms (slopes of 0.57 and 1.56, respectively). The major E(2)[LP(Cα)→σ∗(Cβ-F)] values in the respective anions were found to be linearly correlated with the ΔG°β-F values as an empirical measure of β-fluorine negative hyperconjugation obtained from an increased acidity of the molecule owing to the presence of β-fluorine. However, the magnitude of ΔG°β-F was much smaller than the E(2)[LP(Cα)→σ∗(Cβ-F)] value, indicating that the absolute values of the β-fluorine negative hyperconjugation are smaller than the E(2) interaction energies..

Experimental and Computational Studies, 10.1002/poc.3576, 29, 523-531, 2016.05, The gas-phase acidities (GA) of 2-aryl-2-chloro-1,1,1-trifluoroethanes (1a), 2-aryl-2-fluoro-1,1,1-trifluoroethanes (2a), and related compounds, XC6H4CH(Z)R where Z = Cl (1) or F (2) and R = C2F5 (b), t-C4F9 (c), C(CF3)2C2F5 (d), C(CF3)2Me (e), Me (f),H (g), were investigated experimentally and computationally. On the basis of an excellent linear correlation (R2>0.99) of acidities of 1c-f and 2c-f where there is no fluorine atom at β-position to the deprotonation site with the corrected number of fluorine atoms contained in the fluorinated alkyl group, the extent of β-fluorine negative hyperconjugation of the CF3 and C2F5 groups (ΔGoβ-F) was evaluated. The GAel values given by subtraction ΔGoβ-F from the apparent GA value were considered to represent the electronic effect of the substituent X. The substituent effects on the GAel values and GA values for 1c-f and 2c-f were successfully analyzed in terms of the Yukawa–Tsuno equation. The variation of resonance demand parameter r with the R group observed for various XC6H4CH(Z)R was linearly related to the GA (GAel) value of the respective phenylsubstituted
fluorinated alkanes. On the other hand, the corresponding correlation for the ρ values provided three lines
for ArCH(Cl)R, ArCH(F)R and ArCH2R, respectively. These results supported our previous conclusion that the r and ρ values are governed by the thermodynamic stability of the parent ion (ring substituent = H). Other factors arising from an atom bonded to the acidic center also influence the ρ value..
