Stability of doubly and triply H-bonded complexes governed by acidity-basicity relationships

Abstract

We used our recently proposed Acidity-Basicity Interplay (ABI) model (Chem. Sci., 2018, 9, 4402), and the Jorgensen Secondary Interactions Hypothesis (JSIH) to rationalise the experimentally observed trends in the formation constants of doubly and triply H-bonded systems with−NH···O=C− and −NH···N− interactions. Unlike the JSIH, the ABI interpretation can explain the trends in the complexation of amide/imide homo- and heterodimers as well as ADA–DAD clusters. We found that the strongest H-bonds play a very important role, a condition which offers an alternative to the well established JSIH to modulate the stability of these relevant systems.
