Abstract

The isomeric distributions of some cyclohexenyl enamines substituted by succinyl or acetyl groups at either the 2- or 6-positions are reported as are the isomeric distributions of similarly substituted cyclopentenyl enamines. Correlation between the C-13 NMR chemical shifts in these enamines and isomer distribution is shown. Density functional molecular modeling is used to demonstrate resonance and electrostatic effects on isomeric distributions.
