Abstract

A new phosphine, the diphenyldibenzobarrelenephosphine 2, was designed to study the barrier to rotation of the P−H group around the C−•P bond. After homolytic scission of a P−H bond by radiolysis, the EPR spectrum of the resulting phosphinyl radical, trapped in a single crystal of 2, was studied at 77 K and at room temperature. The directions of the 31P hyperfine eigenvectors were compared with the bond orientations of the undamaged compound as determined from its crystal structure. The temperature dependence of the EPR spectrum was analyzed by using the density matrix formalism; this showed that interaction between the phosphinyl hydrogen and the phenyl ring bound to the ethylenic bond is determinant for explaining the potential energy profile. DFT investigations are consistent with these experimental results.
