X = CO2R or CN). Theoretical calculation at B3LYP/6-31G //HF/STO-3G level showed that the Si-H bond dissociation energies of H-Si(l 11) and (MesSifsSi-H are very similar, which further justifies the use of the well-established radical-based reactivity of (MesSifsSiH as a model for surface reactions.

Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, it has been found that [l.l.l]propellane is considerably less reactive than [2.2.1]propellane. Use the theoretically calculated enthalpy data below to estimate the bond dissociation energy of the central bond in each of the three propellanes shown. How might this explain the relative reactivity of the [1-1.1]- and [2.2. Ijpropellanes [Pg.69]

In addition to the obvious structural information, vibrational spectra can also be obtained from both semi-empirical and ab initio calculations. Computer-generated IR and Raman spectra from ab initio calculations have already proved useful in the analysis of chloroaluminate ionic liquids [19]. Other useful information derived from quantum mechanical calculations include and chemical shifts, quadru-pole coupling constants, thermochemical properties, electron densities, bond energies, ionization potentials and electron affinities. As semiempirical and ab initio methods are improved over time, it is likely that investigators will come to consider theoretical calculations to be a routine procedure. [Pg.156]
