Abstract

Molecular orbital calculations at the unified G2(MP2, SVP) level of theory have been used to examine the energy barrier for 1,n-hydrogen atom migrations in ionized aliphatic alcohols [H(CH2)(n)-1)OH]*+ ? [(CH2)(n)-1OH2]*+ (n = 2-5). A complementary set of experimental and theoretical data confirm that this approach leads to results accurate to within a few kJ mol-1. The better stability of distonic ions [(CH2)(n)-1)OH2]*+ with respect to their classical homologs [H(CH2)(n)-1)OH]*+ is clearly demonstrated by the calculations; it amounts to ~30 kJ mol-1. Critical energies of 106, 90, 76, and 19 kJ mol-1 are calculated for n = 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively. A lowering of the barrier height is observed when considering the energy barrier for 1,5 hydrogen atom migrations in ionized systems with respect to the neutral equivalent, i.e. the Barton rearrangement.
