Abstract

The nature of the lowest triplet state of enones is altered by the cations present within Y zeolites. Alkali metal ions, such as $Li^+$, are predicted to interact with the carbonyl unit of enones in a collinear fashion and significantly lower both the p-type n and \pi -2 orbitals. Excited state energies, estimated at the $CIS(D)/6-31+G^*$ level, show that the lowest triplet is $n-\pi^*$ in character for the enones, but switch to \pi–$\pi^*$on coordination with $Li^+$. Observed product distribution within zeolite is consistent with thistheoretical prediction.
