Permutations may be used to describe the transformations of a given complex MLn into one of the n!/hr, possible isomers. The determination of the n! possible permutations gives all the isomerization paths of this complex occuring by nonbond‐rupture mechanisms. This is applied to the case of four; five‐ and six‐ coordinate structures and might be applied as well to higher coordination numbers. Copyright © 1970 Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim

We show that multiple resonance is a possible tool to determine relative probabilities of isomerization modes in the MA4B ligand partition of the trigonal bipyramid. Distinguishability criteria are derived. The scope and limitations of the method are discussed.

The solution of the rate equations of the isomerization modes of octahedral hexacoordinate complexes is discussed for the general and all the particular ligand partitions. Possible applications of this model are presented.

Permutational isomerization reactions[1][2] may occur in two extreme situations. If the n ligands do not distort the symmetry of the skeleton, then the permutations of the full permutation group Sn have to be classified [1,3] according to the symmetry group G of the idealized skeleton. If the ligands are sufficiently different, they will be blocked and will distort the skeletal framework. In this case, the allowed permutations belong to S′n, a subgroup of Sn and have to be classified [2] accordi...

The formal properties of magnetic site exchange matrices are derived. The similitude with the algebraic properties of the matrices governing the time evolution of isomer concentration is pointed out. Possible applications are discussed.

Trigonal bipyramidal complexes may undergo rearrangements without bondbreaking. We propose in this paper a model which describes the kinetic behaviour of the most general ligand partition [where all ligands are different) of the trigonal bipyramid. It unables us to derive the multiplication table of the rearrangement mode operators and to diagonalize them by the same linear transformation. Relaxation times and time evolutions are calculated for the five possible isomerization modes.

We present some properties of NMR first order spectra in relation with the permutational character of intramolecular rearrangements. We use the symmetry properties of the effective spin hamiltonian in order to analyse the Kubo‐Sack exchange matrices. In this context, we propose the experimental study of two molecules and we show that this study could give rise to new information about the permutational character of the rearrangements responsible for their non‐rigidity.

We analyze the relationship between two fundamental aspects of the study of molecular non-rigidity: isomerization modes and Longuet-Higgins groups. We introduce a new formulation of isomerization modes including permutationsinversion. We show how to use this new representation of isomerization modes for constructing Longuet-Higgins groups, and we illustrate it on an example.

The static and dynamic stereochemistry of dimesityl-2,4,6-trimethoxyphenylmethane in solution was investigated by lineshape analysis of 1D NMR spectra and cross-peak amplitude processing in 2D EXSY spectra, recorded at variable temperatures. Previous studies on this propeller-shaped chiral compound show that the stereomer threshold interconversion is associated with helicity reversal and occurs through [1,2]- and [1,3]-two ring flips of one mesityl and the 2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl rings. In the pr...
