Summary of "Theoretical investigation of hydride insertion into N-heterocyclic carbenes containing N, P, C, O and S heteroatoms."

The endocyclic ring expansion of N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) rings containing one N atom and one P, N, C, O or S heteroatoms has been investigated in a computational study. Ring expansion was determined to follow a common pathway, leading to a final expanded six-membered ring that was predicted to be thermodynamically stable for all heterocycles. However, reactivity is driven by kinetics with ring-expansion reactivity not expected for the P/NHC and C/NHC (cAAC) containing heterocycles due to large barriers for ring-expansion. In contrast, ring expansion is predicted to be feasible for N-heterocyclic carbenes containing an O (O/NHC) or S (S/NHC) heteroatom, with insertion into the O-C and S-C bond favoured over insertion into the N-C bond, respectively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of systems, processes, or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

Heterocyclic compounds that contain two rings that share two non-adjacent atoms in common.

Multiple ring heterocyclic compounds containing two or more rings that share two atoms and one bond in common.

A mutation named with the blend of insertion and deletion. It refers to a length difference between two ALLELES where it is unknowable if the difference was originally caused by a SEQUENCE INSERTION or by a SEQUENCE DELETION. If the number of nucleotides in the insertion/deletion is not divisible by three, and it occurs in a protein coding region, it is also a FRAMESHIFT MUTATION.

A class of heterocyclic compounds that include four or more fused rings. Both aromatic or non-aromatic ring structures are included in this category.
