Abstract [en]

When single crystals of the 5-membered heterocyclic ring structure 2-oxazolidinone (C3O2NH5) are irradiated at room temperature, the major radical formed (R1) decays during a period of a few hours, leaving a broad, unstructured EPR spectrum not amenable to analysis. Cooling the crystals to about 140 K immediately after irradiation at room temperature allows analysis of the R1 radical by EPR and ENDOR. The radical is formed by a net H-abstraction from one of the two methylene groups of the molecule. A full EPR and ENDOR analysis of four proton interactions (one a-coupling, and three ß-couplings) together with ESR evidence for a small nitrogen hyperfine interaction allowed for a precise identification of R1. The results show that the carbon-centered radical R1 is puckered at the radical center. Using DFT calculations together with the experimental EPR and ENDOR results, the torsion angle of the C1-H bond with respect to the N-C1-C2 plane is estimated to be 13-15° (bending angle 0˜ 7°). The DFT calculations reproduced the carbon-bonded proton hyperfine coupling constants satisfactorily but failed to reproduce the experimental results for the nitrogen and nitrogen-bonded proton hyperfine interactions. © The Owner Societies 2002.
