NBO and QTAIM investigations of the conformers of 1,4-dioxane-2,3-bis(pyridin-1-ium) and 1,4-dioxane-2,5-bis(pyridin-1-ium) molecules

2020 Eurasian Chemical Communications  
This research aimed at exploring the stabilities of conformers of 1, 4-dioxane-2, 3-bis (pyridin-1-ium) and 1, 4-dioxane-2, 5-bis(pyridin-1-ium) molecules at the B3LYP/6-311+G (d,p) theory level. To this goal, estimations of the total energies and dipole moments of the axial and equatorial conformations were first done for the mentioned molecules. C-N and C-O bond distances were calculated and these variations were explained with the negative hyperconjugative anomeric effects. The negative

Also, QTAIM study was used for illustration of the C-N and C-C bonds in the studied systems. Keywords: 1, 4-Dioxane; negative hyperconjugative effect; conformers; natural bond orbital analysis (NBO); quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM).
