«Effects of Solvation Shell Structure and Dynamics on Geometry and NMR/UV-vis Spectra of H-bonded Complexes»

Geometries of strong H-bonded complexes in solutions are quite susceptible to steric hindrances, local electric fields and weak solvent-solute interactions. Thermal fluctuations within the complex as well as fluctuations of the solvent molecules and couterions (for charged systems) in the solvation shell lead to a constant re-arrangement of the H-bond geometry. As a result, a distribution of rapidly interconverting solvent configurations – “solvatomers” – is created, with the lifetime usually not exceeding 10-9 s. This process is fast on the NMR time scale and NMR signals of solvatomers are averaged out into a single narrow peak. In contrast, the time scale of optical spectroscopy is much shorter and spectral bands of individual isomers can be observed individually or as parts of the inhomogeneously broadened band.

In this work we summarize the experimental results obtained over the last couple of years for neutral (OHN) and anionic (OHO) strong H-bonded complexes dissolved in polar aprotic solvents (CDF3/CDF2Cl, CDCl3, CD2Cl2) by means of low-temperature NMR and combined NMR/UV-Vis spectroscopy. Main types of interacting partners include carboxylic acids, phenols any pyridines. Using so called “hydrogen bond correlations” we are able to interpret spectral features in terms of interatomic distances.

Analyzing the H-bond geometries we reconstruct an “adiabatic” proton transfer pathway and attempt to identify the essential solvent-solute interactions which could explain the experimentally observed trends. Example in the Figure shows 1H NMR and UV-vis data for a 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol complex with 2,6-lutidine as well as resulting qualitative pathway for the proton transfer. The roles of solvent-solute dipole-dipole interactions, solvent ordering around the localized charges, counterion effects and weak H-bonding with the acidic CH groups of organic solvents are discussed.
