Massachusetts Institute of Technology Organic Chemistry 5.512 February 28, 2005 Prof. Rick L. Danheiser Introduction: Strategies for Stereocontrolled Synthesis Thermodynamic Control Relative energy of diastereomers determines outcome of reaction I. What determines the relative energy of stereoisomers? De-stabilizing Non-bonded Repulsion Stabilizing Non-covalent Interactions Stereoelectronic Effects Deviation from optimal geometry for orbital overlap (angle strain) Destabilizing torsional interactions Stabilizing secondary orbital interactions
