This is of interest because the title compound contains four pyridine rings connected to a central pyrazine ring by four C-C axes; therefore, the altogether 132 degrees of freedom in the 40 center molecule C,,H,,N, are predominantly reduced to four rotations. Motivated by this dynamic aspect, we have determined the solid-state structures of the neutral c0mpound[~1(Fig. 1 top) as well as of its diprotonated salts with either the "naked" or the "hydrocarbon-surrounded" counteranions C1- 1 5 ] (Fig. 1 middle) and (C,H,),B(Fig. 1 bottom), respectively. In the solid-state structure of tetra(2-pyridyl)pyraziner4I (Fig. 1 top), the two pyridine rings on either side of the central pyrazine ring are twisted out of its plane by 50" either up or down. For this inversion-symmetric molecule with adjacent pyridine rings twisted in opposite directions an N ... N distance of 324 pm results; this value exceeds the sum of two N-interference radii of 155 pm[7b1each and, therefore the repulsive nitrogen lone-pair interactions are reduced. In the reaction of the title compound with HCI two diagonally opposing pyridine rings are protonated; hydrogen bridges N +-H . . .CI - are formed to the two electron-rich [*I [**I Prof. Dr. H. Bock.

Structures of tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine (top) and its diprotonated salts with chloride (middle) and tetraphenylhorate anions (bottom). All six-memhered ring skeletons exhibit inversion centers. Essential bond lengths [pm] (f1 pm) and angles ["I (k1") are given; for further structural details see [4-61. chloride anions (rc, = 180 ~ m ) , [ and ~ ~ ]distances between proton-donor and proton-acceptor centers of 295 pm are exhibited. Simultaneously, the unprotonated pyridine rings rotate into planarity with the pyrazine ring (q = 50" +16") causing the (H)N' ... N distances to shorten to 288 pm, a distance less than the sum of two N interference radii (310 (Fig. 1 middle). The N'-H bond lengths of 91 pm as determined by X-ray structural analysis must be corrected to about 104 pm, based on neutron-diffraction structural data. Concomitantly and in agreement with literature data,[7b1the distances H + ...CI- must be corrected to about 185 to 190pm. However, the angles % N'HCI= 171" can presumably be accepted without any correcti~n.[~~] Exchange of the electron-rich and therefore, preferred proton-acceptor center chloride ion for the phenyl surrounded one, tetraphenylborate, which under the reaction conditions is not protonated, can be achieved by anion exchange of tetra(2-pyridine)pyrazine dihydrochloride in acetonitrile VCH Vrrlugsgesellwhufi m h H , W-6940 Weinheim, fY92 ~ 0570-0833192ja303-0 $3.50+ ,2510 299 with Li[B(C6H,),], on addition of which a yellow color is observed.16] Structure determination of the yellow crystals proves drastic changes (Fig. 1 bottom). Thus, the torsion angles of the pyridine rings relative to the pyrazine ring are reduced to 21" and 26", yielding a flattened molecular skeleton, which allows a rationalization of the color. This is essentially due to the formation of two intramolecular hydrogen bridges N + - H . . - N between the N centers of adjacent pyridine rings, which are only 253 pm apart. The uncorrected distances N+-H = 124 pm and H ... N = 133 pm on both sides of the bending angle 4 N+-H-N = 160" differ by only 9 pm. These intramolecular N+-H ... N bridges are rather short even for proton sponges (N+-(H)...N = 265254 pmr3I) as well as almost symmetrical (A(N+-H/ H . . N) = 16- 17 pmr3]) and change, in addition, other structural parameters of tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine (Fig. 1 top). Thus the external C-C-C angles of the pyrazine ring are expanded to 129"(!) and the differing pyridine @so angles of 123" and 117" in the dihydrochloride (Fig. 1 middle) expectedlyr21equalize at 121". Additional information on the problem of different hydrogen bridges in one compound^"^ '1 is provided by extensive quantum chemical calculations:[81 1) The preferred conformation of tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine in the crystal (Fig. 1 top) is reproduced by a complete AM1 geometry optimization starting from standard structural parameters.[8a1The alternative arrangement, which would contain triazachelate pincers and could be constructed by rotation of all pyridine rings, proves to be energetically less favorable, presumably due to the resulting N ... N distances of about 290 pm, which are less then the sum of interference radii. 2) For the diprotonation and the conversion of the two external H bridges to intramolecular ones, enthalpy of formation contributions of +91 kJmol-' and +443 kJmol-' are predicted.[8h1However, these gas-phase values must be corrected for the unknown solvation and lattice energies. 3 ) The AM1 charge distributions for tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine M and for its different diprotonation products [MH: Cl;] and [MH:] calculated from the crystal structure data, exhibit significant differences: Thus for the H' bridge and of centers, residual charges of +0.33 ([MH:CI;]) +0.38 ( [ a : ] ) are estimated as well as -0.82 for the chloride anion. The partial charges at the pyridine N centers change from -0.12 ( M ) to -0.05 and -0.16 ([MHlCIJ) and to -0.16 and -0.19 ([MH:]), predicting AqN = 0.11 for the dichloride with one-sided NH' bridges and only AqN = 0.03 for the bis(tetrapheny1borate) with almost symmetrical intramolecular bridges. As expected, the positive charges introduced by diprotonation are partially distributed to the peripheral pyridine hydrogens. 4) For a simulation of the H + bridge potentials, which depend strongly on the N ... N distance,i8c1the structure of the 4-aminopyridine semiperchlorate provides an appropriate starting point (Scheme This structure has been determined by neutron diffraction and shows an N " . N distance of 270 pm between the two perpendicular pyridine rings as well as an unsymmetrical hydrogen bridge (N +-H 117 pm, H ... N 152 pm). Variation of the distance dN between 280 pm and 240 pm and stepwise movement of the bridge proton along the N-N axis by Ar yield different potential curves after each total geometry optimization of the pyridine rings (Scheme 1). Double minima are calculated for structures with N . . N distances between 280pm and 250pm; the height of the barrier decreases from 35 to 2 kJmol- ', and the difference in the N-H bond lengths is reduced from 70 pm to 22 pm.

N distance of about 270 pm, an N+H . . . N bond energy of 54 kJmol-' results. On shortening the N ... N distance from 260 pm to 250 pm, the AM1 calculations predict an increase in energy due to increasing N-N = 245 pm a single minimum with repulsion, and for dN...N equal distances N-H' of 122.5 pm is found. All other calculated properties exhibit only small changes: The pyridine @so angles vary between 118" ( H . . . N 197pm) and 120" (N+-H 103pm) and the charges q H + ,between +0.34 ( N . . . N 2 8 0 p m ) and +0.36 ( N . . . N 2 5 0 p m ). 5) In the diprotonated tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine containing two intramolecular hydrogen bridges (Fig. 1 bottom), the proton movement might be coupled to a "flip-flop" molecular dynamics: The adjacent pyridine rings are twisted by 26" and 21 out of the pyrazine plane. If their differing twisting angles are not caused by the crystal packing, the transition from one into the other double minimum should cause a change of 5". Therefore, in additional AM1 model calculationsrSd1 the proton was shifted in ten steps with AdNH= 9 pm along the experimentally determined structure with dN...N = 253 pm. The following data are obtained for the barrier of the double minimum: height AAH, = 4 kJmol-', dN-H+ = 128 pm, bonding angle < N(H+)N = 170", pyridine ips0 angles of 121", and a proton charge qH+= +0.38. According to the approximate quantum chemical calculations, both tetra(2-pyridy1)pyrazine dihydrochloride and bis(tetrapheny1borate) also differ in the type of their hydrogen bridge: With the electron-rich chloride ion as the proton acceptor, due to the rather long N ... N distance of 288 pm, a simple potential minimum is approximated, in which the energetically favorably located proton vibrates only around its equilibrium position. The N+-H ... N bridges in the "naked" dication, on the other hand, are among the shortest known13,', 191 with the smallest difference in the bond lengths N +-H and H . . . N.i3,7 , Their formation causes the N ... N distance to shorten by 35 pm (!) (Fig. 1 middle and 1 bottom), corresponding to a structure represented by a shallow double-minimum with a low barrier. The movement of the proton coupled with molecular dynamics, however, seems to be largely frozen in the crystal at 100 KL6' according to the center of inversion formed.

NC,H,, the starting point was the structure determined by neutron diffraction [9] with the six-meinbered rings perpendicular to each other and the N . . . N distance varied between 280 pin and 240 pm. For the individual potential curves AAH,/Ar (Scheme 1). the bridge proton is moved in 5 pm steps along the N-N axis and the geometry of thecomplete system including both pyridine rings was optimized. Additional calculations for coplanar pyridine rings yield similarpotentialcurves, theAAH,valuesofwhichare higher by 2-3 kJmol-' It has been pointed out that semiempirical calculation procedures often exaggerate N/N repulsion relative to the H+-bridge attraction due to insufficient N+-H '..

In the fifth step the enthalpy of formation increased from 2410 kJmo1-I to 2414 kJmol-'. The structural parameters given correspond to interpolation values. [9] J. Roziere, J. M. Williams, E.
