Chiral recognition in a single molecule: a study of homo and heterochiral butan-2,3-diol by Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy

Abstract:

The microwave Fourier transform spectrum of butan-2,3-ol has been recorded in the range 5-18 GHz. The molecule possesses two chiral centres and exists in two distinct forms, one of which is homochiral ((R,R) or (S,S)) and is overall chiral, and the other which is heterochiral ((R,S) or (S,R)) and is overall meso. Detailed ab initio calculations enabled investigation of the relative stability of the many conformations exhibited by each form of the molecule. It is shown that the lowest energy f...
