Title

Kinetics and Deuterium Kinetic Isotope Effects for the Thermal [1,7] Sigmatropic Rearrangements of Cis,cis-1,3,5-octatriene

Abstract

Thermal isomerizations of cis,cis-1,3,5-octatriene at 60-111°C occur with activation parameters log A = 9.1 and Ea = 21.3 (to cis,cis,cis-2,4,6-octatriene) and Ea = 20.2 kcal mol-1 (to cis,cis,trans-2,4,6-octatriene). Primary deuterium kinetic isotope effects for these [1,7] sigmatropic shifts are found to be 6.4-7.7 and not markedly temperature dependent, indicative of a linear or nearly linear C7-H-C1 geometry in the transition-state structure. © 1987 American Chemical Society.
