Vacuum Dynamic Gas Phase/Solid-Phase Reactions:
N-Chlorination of Primary Amines and
a-Elimination of the Resulting Chloramines;
Synthesis of Reactive (0and (a-Aldimines
By Jean-Claude Guillemin and Jean-Marc Denis*
The (E)- and (2)-aldimines 3 and 4 are intermediates in
chemical and enzymatic oxidations of primary amines, as
well as in the dehydration of aldehyde-ammonia adducts.
Several of them have been detected in the pyrolysis decomposition products of alkylamines, cyclic aldimine trimers, and alkylazides, but information concerning their stereochemistry is scarce and conflicting. Attempts to isolate
and characterize both the (E)- and (2)-isomers of this class
of compounds as stable free bases have so far failed.
Reactive species have been recently synthesized by vacuum dynamic gadsolid phase reactions1']. We report here
the direct synthesis of the reactive aldimines 3a-3f and
4a-4f by a "one-pot'' multistep sequence carried out in a
single vacuum line: N-chlorination of the primary amines
1 on solid N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS) is followed by an
a-elimination reaction of the resulting N-chloramines 2"l

Is the Unpaired Electron in
Radical Cations of Sterically Hindered Alkenes
Localized or Delocalized?**
By Horst Eierdanz and Armin Berndt*
An electron exchange between the localized structures A
and B was recently postulated['] for the sterically hindered
radical cations 1-3; it was suggested that the frequency
of this process strongly decreases with increasing steric
hindrance, and that 3 behaves like an alkyl radical ESR
By labeling an sp2 C atom of 3 with I3C we have now
been able to demonstrate that the unpaired electron in 3 and, hence, also in the less hindered radical cations 1 and
2 -is delocalized.

The localized structure A or B for 3 was.derived from the
result that only 12 of the total 24 methyl protons and only
four of the total eight methylene protons lead to a splitting
of the ESR spectrum. From this is was concluded that the
unpaired electron couples with the protons "in only one cyclopentylidene-half'['l. The result is, however, also consistent with a delocalized structure A - B , if one assumes that
the cyclopentylidene rings occur in conformation C"'],
which is fixed o n the ESR time scale, with a total of four
axial and four equatorial methyl groups and methylene
protons, of which only one of each type couple with the
unpaired electron.
This alternative appears at first to be less attractive,
since it must be combined with a high inversion barrier[6h1
and infinitesimally small coupling constants for half of the
proton#"]. We obtained evidence, however, that this
could be the case by studying the radical cations 4 and 5
1.43 and 1.38 mT, respectively), which at -90 "C
exhibit ESR coupling constants of 0.23 and 0.25 mT, respectively ( 3 : 0.203 mT"') for only six of the twelve y-methy1 protons.

[6] Furthermore, in 3 and 3" we observed a ' ) C coupling constant for four C
atoms in natural abundance with a'=0.98 mT, which we assign to the C
atoms of the four axial methyl groups. b) The barrier must be higher than
ra. 8 kcal/mol, since even at + 3 0 T the width of the hyperline lines is
only 0.007 mT, and hence no indication of an inversion process is obvious
(F. Gerson, personal communication). c) This is apparent both from the
narrow ESR line width and from the fact that no signals near the frequency of the free proton are observed in the ENDOR spectrum (F. Gerson, personal communication).
An Isolable Aminyl Complex**
By Dieter Sellmum*, Jiirgen Miiller, and Peter Hofmann
The alternatives should be clearly distinguishable from
one another in the I3C labeled radical 3": two coupling
constants having values similar to those of a tertiary alkyl
radical (ca. 4.5 mT for the radical center and ca. 1.2 mT for
the neighboring sp2-C atom with the positive charge) are
cted for the localized structure. In contrast, for the delocalized structure only one coupling constant is expected
in the delocalized radical cations 6*I3l
(a c--0.85 mT) and 7* (at -40°C: a"=1.43 mT (6H),
a H= 0.065 mT (18 H), ac = 0.86 mT, g = 2.0027)-should be
ca. 0.9 mT.
We obtained cyclopentanone with a I3C labeled carbonyl group in 38% yield by allowing the dimagnesium compound of 1,4-dibromob~tane[~]
to react with I3CO2(24%
I3C) in tetrahydrofuran; 3* was then prepared as described['].
The ESR spectrum of 3* can be simulated using the proton coupling constants mentioned in ['] and one I3C coupling constant of 0.88 mT l6l; this proves the delocalized
electronic structure A + B for 3. The less hindered radicals
1 and 2 should have the same electronic structure. The
temperature-dependent line-width effects observed for 2['l
may not arise from electron exchange but from ring inversion of the cyclopentyl ring, which because of the smaller
steric hindrance takes place with a higher frequency than
in 3.

Aminyl radicals, 'NHR, usually cannot be isolated because of their high reactivity; they are assumed to be intermediates in oxidation reactions catalyzed by metal enzymes (e. g. peroxidase) and in the photolysis o r radiolysis
of arnines"'. During our investigation of redox reactions of
metal complexes with nitrogen ligands we succeeded in
trapping and stabilizing the toluidinyl radical, which is not
isolable as such, in the paramagnetic manganese complex
2, R = C H 3 ; to our knowledge this compound represents
the first aminyl complex.
If the m-toluidine complex 1 (vco: 1922, 1847 c m - ' , obtained from C5H5(C0)2Mn(THF)and m-CH3C6H4NH2by
standard procedured2"I) is oxidized with air o r HzOz, the
red-brown toluene solution immediately turns deep blue
and two new vco-bands can be observed IR-spectroscopically at 1968 and 1920 cm-'. After concentration of the solution and addition of hexane the blue-black m-toluidinyl
complex 2 crystallizes at -78 "C as analytically pure microcrystaIdZhl.
In the solid state 2 is stable at room temperature for several hours; it is characterized by one vNH-and two vcobands at 3340 and 1959/1902 c m - ' (KBr), by its mass[*] Prof. Dr. D. Sellmann, J. Muller
