1 Probing Halogen Bonds with NMR One- and Two-Bond Spin-Spin Coupling Constants Halogen bonds: 19 F- 35 Cl… 15 N 1 J(F-Cl) 1X J(Cl-N) 2X J(F-N) Janet E. Del Bene

2 Methods for structure optimization and the calculation of spin-spin coupling constants 1.Structure optimization: (Gaussian 03) F-Cl…N: MP2/aug’-cc-pVTZ 2.Coupling constants: a. Method: Equation-of-motion coupled cluster singles and doubles (EOM-CCSD) (ACES II) b. Basis set: Ahlrichs (qzp,qz2p) c. J Terms: paramagnetic spin-orbit (PSO), diamagnetic spin- orbit (DSO), Fermi contact (FC), and spin dipole (SD)

10 Across the proton-transfer coordinate for F-H…NH 3 2h J(F-N) → 1h J(H-N) → ← 1 J(F-H) Hz R(F-H), Å

11 Across the Cl-transfer coordinate for F-Cl…NH 3 Hz R(Cl-N), Å 2X J(F-N) → ← 1 J(F-Cl) 1X J(Cl-N) →

12 Why doesn’t 1X J(Cl-N) in the complex approach 1 J(Cl-N) in the isolated ion? F - …… + Cl-NH 3 + Cl-NH 3 -31 Hz+9 Hz Complex: F(-0.41e) Cl(+0.25e) N(-0.49e) Ion: Cl(+0.32e) N(-0.04e)

13 Conclusions 1.Coupling constants across halogen bonds can be used to characterize complexes with F-Cl…N halogen bonds. Both 2h J(F-N) for hydrogen bonds and 2X J(F-N) for halogen bonds increase in absolute value with decreasing F-N distance. 2. Changes in coupling constants along the Cl transfer are quite different from changes in corresponding coupling constants across the proton-transfer coordinate. 3. Complexes of F-Cl with the stronger N bases are more stable than corresponding complexes of F-H, and should be amenable to experimental investigations of coupling constants at low temperatures.
