Flash vacuum pyrolysis of substituted Meldrum's acid
derivatives is known to give methyleneketenes (alkyl2and
alkox?' compounds) (Scheme I). However, alkylthio3ps
and alkylaminoS derivatives further react to the corresponding five-membered heterocycles, and thiophen-3(W)-ones or pyrrol-3(W)-ones are generally characterized
in solution as the reaction products. The only exception
concerns th; e sterically strained bis(alky1thio) Meldrum's
acid derivative 1 [isopropylidene (1,3-dithiolan-2-ylidenelmdonate], for which the gas-phase characterization
of [bis(alkylthio)methylene]ketene2 could be performed.'

of elusive compounds,' the PES detection of other [(al(1) Application of PhotoelectronSpectroscopy to Molecular Properties. 45. Part 44: Lacombe, s.; Pfieter-Guillouzo, G.;Guillemin, J. C.;

action is led to completion at 893 K for 3 and 793 K for
5 (disappearanceof the bands corresponding to the starting
compounds in Figures l b and 2b). By digitally subtraction
of acetone from these spectra, the difference spectra displayed in Figures ICand 2c are obtained. The thiophen3(2H)-ones 7 and 8 were independently prepared under
the previously reported pyrolysis conditions (843 K for 3
and 813 K for 5) and their structures confirmed by NMR
analysise3 The PES spectra of 7 and 8 are presented in
Figures Id and 2d, respectively, and it is observed that they
are identical with the difference spectra recorded under
SPP conditions (Figures ICand 2c) in spite of the presence
of C02in these latter. It is thus concluded that, even under
SPP conditions, the methyleneketenes 4 and 6 are not
observed and give rise to the heterocycles 7 and 8 between
673 and 793 or 893 K, the evolution of the SPP photoelectron spectra is described as the disappearance of the
starting compounds with simultaneous formation of the
thiophen-3(2H)-ones, and the possible presence of the
methyleneketenes 4 and 6 is not straightforward.
We have checked that in the gas phase no keto-enol
equilibrium was observed (no evolution of the photoelectron spectra even at high temperature). These results
indicate that a sole isomer is present in the gas phase.
The identification of this isomer could be inferred from
the experimental IPSof the species under study. However,
a comparison between calculated and observed IPSdoes
not unambiguously solve this question (Figure 4). Actually, different polarization effects (not included in Koopmans's approximation) are expected for each isomer.
Moreover, some discrepancies have been observed for
molecules bearing third-row a t o m ~ . ~ J ~
Thus our analysis relies on the evolution of the spectra
with excitation energy 21.21 eV (He I) and 40.81 eV (He
11)combined with the localization properties of the wave
function inferred from MNDO calculations."

Figure 4. MNDO orbital localizations and eigenvalues of 5methyl- and 5-(methylthio)thiophen-3(2H)-ones(7 and 8) and
of 5-methyl-3-hydroxythiophene (10) with the experimental IP
observed for 7, 8, and 3-methoxythiophene(13).

As a matter of fact, it has been demonstrated that relative band intensities of MOs mainly localized on 3s and
3p AOs of sulfur diminish significantly in the transition
from the He I to the He I1 spectrum. On the contrary, the
relative band intensities of MOs with high coefficients at
oxygen increase on going from He I to He I1 spectra."
It follows from the localization properties of the wave
functions computed for compounds 7 (keto form) and 10
(enol form) that a different behavior is expected for 7 and
10 on going from He I to He I1 excitation energy. For the
enol compound 10, the three first ?r orbitals are described
as mixtures of sulfur, oxygen, and carbon AOs (first and

J. Org. Chem. 1991,56,3447-3449
third ones) or of sulfur and carbon AOs (second one). It
is thus expected that for the first and third MOs the
relative band intensities will not vary to a large extent on
going from He1 to He11 excitation energy, as the decrease
due to the contribution of sulfur AOs should be moderated
by the increase arising from oxygen AOs. For the band
associated with the ionization of the second MO, the important contribution of carbon AOs should temper the
expected decrease arising from the participation of the
sulfur AO.
These assumptions are in complete agreement with the
experimental He I and He I1 spectra of the model methoxy
compound 13 featuring the enol form: for this product,
as expected, no dramatic change of the relative band intensities is observed on going from He I to He I1 excitation
energy, except a very slight decrease of the fourth one at
11.72 eV (ionization of a sulfur lone pair) (Figure 3).
On the contrary, for the keto isomer 7, the decrease of
the first band intensity and the invariance of the third one
(both associated with T ionizations) may be anticipated.
For the second band, attributed to the ionization of the
oxygen lone pair, an important intensity increase is forecast. The relative intensity changes observed for the
studied compound on going from He I to He I1 excitation
energy are different from the evolution demonstrated for
13 and support our latter expectations in favor of the keto
compound 7 (Figure 1): a strong decrease of the first,
8.78-eV band; a weaker decrease of the third, 11.02-eV
band; a significant increase of the second, 9.50-eV band
(the strong decrease of the fourth, 11.96-eV band, as for
the model methoxy isomer 13, arises from the important
contribution of sulfur in a lone pair type MO).
We thus conclude the existence of the keto isomer 7 in
the gas phase. The attribution of the spectrum of 8 (for
which no He I1 spectrum could be recorded due to too
weak intensity signals) follows from the description of the
spectnun of 7 (Figure 2). The alkylthio substitution should
bring about a new ionization associated with the antisymmetric combination of the sulfur lone pairs (ns, - nsJ. In
agreement with the stabilization expected from the carbonyl lone pair12on the experimental IPS(8.2 and 8.8 eV)
reported for the l,l-bis(methylthio)ethylene,13the bands
associated with the ionizations of the symmetric (ns, + nsz)
and antisymmetric (ns, - ns,) combinations are thus observed at 8.60 and 9.35 eV, respectively (the first one not
very far from the corresponding one of 7 at 8.78 eV). On
the other hand, the no lone pair ionization should be observed at the same energetic level in 7 and 8: 9.50 eV. The
greater intensity of the 9.35-9.50-eV band of 8 is then
accounted for by the attribution of two ionizations arising
from the (ns, - nsJ orbital and from the no orbital.
Moreover, from the results on the 1,l-bis(methy1thio)-and
(methylthio)ethylene,13 it may be anticipated that the
ionization related to the (T + ns, + nsJ orbital will be
found at a deeper energetic position than for 7 (11.02 eV):
indeed for 8 this ionization is hidden in the broad band
at 12.34 eV.
The observation of the sole keto isomers of these derivatives of thiophen-3(2H)-ones in the gas phase is to be
related with the results of their keto-enol equilibrium in
solution.
It has been shown that the parent thiophen-3(2H)-one
(9) and its 2,bdimethyl derivative existed in 75/25 and
90/ 10 keto/enol mixtures, respectively, in CHC13 solu(12) Sandorfy, C.; Lewis, J. W.; Wladislaw, B.; Calegao, J. C. Phosphorus Sulfur Relat. Elem. 1989.6.287.

tions6J4and that the percentage of the enol form increased
with solvent ability to form hydrogen bonds (100% enol
form of 9 in DMSO"). On the contrary, compounds 7 and
8 were reported to exist only in the keto form in CDC13
~olutions.~
We have checked that, for these two latter
compounds 7 and 8, the keto-enol equilibrium was less
shifted than for the other previously mentioned thiophen-3(2H)-ones: the keto/enol percentages were found
to be 66/34 for 7 and 83/20 for 8 in CD3COCD3and 34/66
and 30/70, respectively, in DMSO-dGfrom NMR spectra.
The observation of the keto as the only tautomer for 7 and
8 in CDC13bolsters the argument in favor of the identification of the gas-phase species as the keto tautomer since
CDC13,of all the solvents mentioned, is the one most approximating the gas phase (Le., most lacking in H-bonding
ability). I t could be pointed out at this stage that, in the
MNDO approximation, neglecting correlation effects, the
relative energies of the two keto or enol isomers are calculated to be very close (within l kcalmmol-l).
In conclusion, compounds 7 and 8 are observed in the
keto form both in the gas phase and in CDC13 solution^.^
However, the exclusive formation of the cyclic thiophen3(2H)-ones instead oE the [ (alky1thio)methylenelketenes
from the Meldrum's acid derivatives is a different result
from that found in the case of the related methoxy compound in this latter case, the (methoxymethy1ene)ketenes
were characterized in the gas phase and there was no evidence of furan-3(2H)-one formation. Further investigations dealing with these different behaviors are in progreas.
Experimental Section
Photoelectron spectra were recorded on an Helectros 0078
photoelectron spectrometer equipped with a 1 2 7 O cylindrical
analyzer and monitored by a microcomputer supplemented with
a digital analog converter. The spectra are calibrated on the
known ionizations of xenon (12.13 and 13.43eV) and argon (15.76
and 15.93 eV). The IPSare accurate within 0.02 eV. The short
path pyrolysis system has been described elsewhere? The starting
Meldrum's acids were synthesized according to the reported
methods.lS The preparations of the thiophen-3(2H)-onesssand
3-metho~ythiophene'~
have been described.
Calculations were performed with the AMPAC program" on a
Vax computer on fully optimized geometries.
