Sumathi, R and Chandra, AK (1993) Conformational Studies of Some Alpha-substituted Acetones CH3COCH2XCH3 Where X=CH2, O Or S And Phenacyl Sulfide. In: Journal of Molecular Structure (Theochem), 99 (1). pp. 49-58.Full text not available from this repository.
Both semiempirical and ab initio calculations are reported for conformational studies of a series of alpha-substituted acetones CH3COCH2XCH3 where X = CH2, O or S and of phenacyl sulfide PhCOCH2SCH3. For conformational studies in the lowest triplet state of these molecules, the MINDO/3 method was employed in the unrestricted Hartree-Fock frame. Results reveal that rotation around a bond alpha to the carbonyl group is more favourable than that around the beta bond. The preferred conformations in the lowest triplet state are nearly the same as in the ground state.
