Double-Bond Geometry of Norbornene:
Neutron Diffraction Measurement of a Derivative
at 1 5 K
By Otto Errnu,* Peter Bell, and Sax A . Mason
Norbornene 1 is a prototypal strained olefin and as such
a prominent model system of mechanistic organic chemistry.
Numerous experimental and theoretical studies have shown
that the reactivity of the double bond of 1 is characterized by
a pronounced preference for exo attack. Inter aha, this has
been rationalized in terms of the geometry of the double
bond, which is not completely planar but bent in endo direction by the angle x (endo pyramidalization, symmetric outof-plane bending). The related changes in hybridization and
steric factors favor ex0 attack."]
Despite the multitude of previous work,"] the magnitude
of the endo bending of the double bond of 1, that is, the angle
x, is not reliably known. For example, from theoretical calculations applying quantum-chemical models or empirical
force fields the following x angles have been derived: 1.7"
(MM2 force field),['h] 4.2" (extended Hiickel MO),'"] 4.5"
(CFF force
4.9" (ab initio, STO-3G).['d.g1Further[*] Prof. Dr. 0.Ermer, DipLChem. P. Bell

more, a number of X-ray analyses have been undertaken,
which in most cases, however, involved unfavorable derivatives. Still worse, the light hydrogen atoms obviously can in
principle not be located reliably by X-ray diffraction.
In order to place the extensive norbornene discussion on a
sound basis, that is, to localize reliably the double-bond H
atoms, we have performed a neutron diffraction measurement at 15 K on the simple derivative 2 (exo-exo-2,3-norborn-5-enedicarboxylic anhydride).[jI Norbornene itself is
not suitable for such purposes: At room temperature the
low-melting (m.p. 46 "C) and rather spherical hydrocarbon
forms soft, deliquescent crystals of unknown structure. The
present structural problem of norbornene is comparable to
that of trans-cyclooctene, which involves a strongly nonplanar double bond and also plays the role of a prominent
reference olefin. Some time ago, we reliably measured the
double-bond geometry of trans-cyclooctene by means of
neutron diffracti~n.[~]
Key results of the neutron diffraction measurement on the
norbornene derivative 2 are collected in Figure 1.Is1 Strictly

speaking, the molecules of 2 possess no symmetry in the
crystal, yet are mirror-symmetric to a very good degree of
approximation. The analytical description of the nonplanar
double-bond deformations requires three independent
which in the present case are
defined as follows: a) Twisting angle QD = "torsion angle"
between the p orbitals at C5 and C6 = arithmetic mean of
the two double-bond torsion angles C4-C5-C6-C1 and
H5-C5-C6-H6; b) out-of-plane bending (pyramidalization) angles xs and xb at C5 and C6 = deviation from planarity of the two dihedral angles C4-C5-C6/H5-C5-C6
and C1-C6-C5/H6-C6-C5.['01 The twisting angle (P, has
the very small value 0.6(2)", and the double bond is thus
almost untwisted (Q, = 0" for exact mirror symmetry). The
bending angles xs and x6, which are at the focus of this work,
amount to 7.3(2) and 7.5(2)", respectively, and correspond
to endo pyramidalization (Fig. lc). In line with the approximate mirror symmetry, both bending angles are practically
equal, and our neutron diffraction measurement thus
affords a pyramidalization of x = 1/2(xs + x6) = 7.4(2)".
This precise value turns out to be roughly twice as high
as usually estimated for norbornene I (see above).
Like always in such cases, the question arises as to the
influence of crystal packing and substituent effects on x. In
view of the absence of particularly short intermolecular contacts and the closely approximated molecular mirror symmetry, packing effects are likely to be negligible. Likewise, the
rather remote anhydride moiety is expected to exert little
influence on the double-bond bending; comparative quantum-chemical calculations on I and 2 could help settle this
Regarding other structural properties of 2, the reader is
referred to the collection of bond lengths and angles in Figure 1 b. Mention is made only of the bond angle H-C7-H of
109.0(2)", which is somewhat widened relative to the normal
value of about 106-107", since the angle CI-C7-C4 amounts
to only 93.67(6)".[' 'I The bond lengths C1-C2 and C3-C4 are
somewhat lengthened, probably due to the anhydride group.
Suffice it to say that other comparable carboxy derivatives of
norbornane also show this feature, whereas we have found
shortened C1-C2 bonds in ester derivatives of exo-2-norbornanol.
According to the simple empirical force-field models,['h*2a1 the driving force for endo bending of the double
bond of norbornene is to be sought in a decrease of torsional
strain around both C(sp2)-C(sp3) single bonds, since the
endo pyramidalizations lead to a more staggered orientation
of the C(sp2)-H bonds. The two projections of Figure 1d
show quantitatively that the three torsion angles around C4C5 and CI-C6, in which H5 and H6, respectively, participate, each assume more favorable (more staggered) values by
7.1 and 7.2" through the endo pyramidalizations. In the synsesquinorbornene 3, two norbornene systems are fused
sured for a number of derivatives of 3[12]are roughly two
times larger than in norbornene. However, it is to be conceded that this very simple and more qualitative picture most
likely does not convey the whole truth since the quantitative
reproduction of the double-bond bendings in the force-field
calculations is not satisfactory. For example, the amount of
double-bond bending in 3 is probably also influenced by
angle strain factors.['".
For benzonorbornene 4 considerably smaller pyramidalization (at C2 and C3) than in norbornene 1 may be anticipated, since the rotational barriers around C(sp2tC(sp3)
bonds at a benzene ring are substantially lower than around
such bonds at an olefinic double bond. (Compare the sixfold
rotational barrier of the methyl group in toluene of only
0.01 3 kcal m o l ~
with the essentially threefold barrier in
propene, which amounts to 1.98 kcal mol- '.[' 3h1) Furthermore, pyramidalization (out-of-plane bending) at the benzene ring is energetically somewhat more costly relative to
olefinic double bonds.['41 We have prepared the two crystalline benzonorbornene derivatives 5 and 6 and have sub-

jetted them to X-ray analysis.[' The resulting average
bendings x (endo direction) at the C(sp2tC(sp2)bond shared
by the norbornene unit and the benzene ring are 2.7(3)" in 5
and 2.0(9)' in 6. These rather similar endo pyramidalizations
are thus indeed much smaller than observed in 2.

which has two parallel double bonds in close proximity. A relatively large
endo pyramidalization of x = 8.1(2.1)0 was found for one of the two double bonds and ascribed to particularly strong nonbonding repulsions between the double bonds due to orbital symmetry. However. comparison
with the reliable neutron diffraction results on 2 now available indicates
that this influence of orbital symmetry is smaller than previously [2a]
believed. More definite conclusions would necessitate diffraction measurement also on the tetracyclododecadiene derivative.

[3] A relatively crude X-ray measurement was reported earlier for 2 (photographic intensity data, R = 0.086, hydrogen positions constructed on the
basis of a planar double bond but not refined): G. Filippini, C. M. Gramaccioli, C. Rovere, M. Simonetta. Acra CrystaNogr. 5 2 8 (1972) 2869. In
order to avoid unpleasant disturbances (e.g., disorder), we performed a
renewed X-ray measurement on 2 (four-circle diffractometer) before embarking upon neutron diffraction and obtained a well-refinable “clean”
structure free from any unusual features ( R = 0.038). Altogether we prepared six simple norbornene derivatives and tested their suitability for
neutron diffraction by means of complete X-ray analyses, until eventually
the anhydride 2 was selected.

Lithium amides (amidolithiums), RR’NLi, are valuable
reagents in both organometallic and organic syntheses.“’ As
such, solutions of these reagents are usually either bought, or
prepared in situ by lithiation of amines, then used forthwith
in subsequent reactions.[’] More recently, however, a selection of these materials has been isolated and they have been
examined in their own right; in particular, structures have
been elucidated (in the crystal by X-ray
and in
solution by molecular mass measurements and NMR spectroscopyr4]), and attempts have been made to rationalize the
occurrence of such structures.[51Here we describe the synthesis, solid-state structure, and solution behavior of hexamethyleneimidolithium, 1. Most importantly, in the crystal 1 is
a hexamer (n = 6), and as such it is the first uncomplexed
lithium amide structure with n > 4 and the first which is not
a simple planar (NLi), ring.161Despite such novel features,
the structure of 1 is consistent with the prior rationalizations
of amidolithium structures: although the hexamer could be
viewed as arising from two vertically stacked trimeric rings,
analysis of N-Li bond lengths within it reveals that it is in
fact best seen as a ladder-type structure with sufficient N-Li
rings (six) that the ladder can turn back on itself and cyclize.
The building blocks for lithium amide structures appear to
be planar (NLi), rings (Scheme 1 a, shown for n = 2). In the
