Cross interaction Constants As a Measure of the Transition State Structure (Part 2). Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions of Phenacyl Bromides with Aniline in Methanol-Acetonitrile Mixtures
Ikchoon Lee*, In Chul Kim
Kinetics and mechanism of the nucleophilic substitution reactions of phenacyl bromides with anilines in methanol-acetonitrile mixtures at 45.0℃ are reported. The reaction is found to proceed via SN2 process, but the magnitudes of cross interaction constants, ρXY, between substituents X in the nucleophile and Y in substrate were unusually small, even after allowing for the fall off due to non-conjugative intervening -CO group in the reactant. As in the other phenacyl derivatives, the resonance shunt phenomenon was invoked to explain the remarkable diminuation of the |ρXY| values.
