In particular, various changes to the structure can be made, to increase or decrease steric bulk, etc and the effects of these changes can be modelled, ie predicted. A resorcinol-anthracene based aromatic molecule was designed in the form of spacers the aromatic rings and links in the form of hydrogen-bonds to create in the solid state a system with well defined cavities, which are large enough to accommodate small organic molecules, such as ethyl methacrylate and cyclohexadiene. The attempts made in this regard failed, and so another strategy was tried. So how can Molecular Mechanics model the following carbonium ions? Another property of this molecule can also be studied using molecular mechanics, namely the rotation and preferred orientation of the aryl-C bond, for which mechanics is very well suited.

Here we will be importing the X-ray derived coordinates. Don’t already have an Oxford Academic account? Quite large molecules can be enclosed in these balls, and once in, they organize themselves very specifically, a phenomenon Rebek has termed molecular “social isomerism” DOI: A picture of the twist boat conformation for diherral molecule appears at the beginning of this report.
Under the MM2 heading, the minimize energy command was used to position the molecule into its lowest energy state. There are some important considerations to doing so. Notice also however how it predicts that the tertiary carbonium ion is actually Chem3x stable than the preceeding primary ion, which is surprising to say the least. BioinformaticsVolume 6, Issue 2, 1 AprilPages —, https: When a standard MM2 mechanics force field is applied to the resorcinol-anthracene anvil, the following results are obtained:.

Organic chemists are taught that carbonium ion stability is predominantly due to electronic factors such as whether they are primary, secondary, tertiary, allylic, benzylic etc. In this case, it dihddral predicted to arise almost entirely from the non-bonded van der Waals term rather than electrostatic or hydrogen bonding dipole-dipole terms.
The first attempt was to use the molecular dynamics command to try to change the shape. The dihedral angle of C6-C1-C2-C8 was then set to a similar dihhedral and the ring became a boat with a twisted shape.
The chair conformation is a more stable form than the boat conformation because there is chem3 steric interaction between hydrogens on the molecule. The equations above in effect only include the first and possibly second term of this expansion.
The molecule assumed a chair conformation with one t-butyl group in an axial position and the other in an equatorial position.

The Mechanics method could in principle provide an estimate of this term via sihedral of the normal modes of vibration and solution of dihdral appropriate partition function equationsbut few Mechanics programs actually perform this calculation which requires the second derivatives to be evaluated, something only available using MM4, accurate to between cm As noted before, the origins of the molecular mechanics method can be traced to work done by eg Barton see reprints on van der Waalselectrostatic or the joined up analysisBright-Wilson Molecular Vibrations, Geometries of carbonium ions are particularly inaccessible; it is not easy at all to get crystal structures!

As more and larger substituents are dhedral to the cyclohexane, the comparisons of steric interactions become more complicated. To further analyze the molecule, a model was built with the Darling Model kit. Chem3D is a computer program which allows us to calculate the energies of conformations of molecules.
