Three isomeric molecular clefts: 3,3'-bis(pyridine-n-carboxy) lithocholic acid 1,2-ethanediol diesters (n = 2–4) 1–3 have been synthesized and their structures ascertained by 1H, 13C NMR and MALDI TOF MS. Their complex formation with Ag+-cation (added as AgO3 SCF3) have been investigated by means of NMR and molecular orbital calculations. The coordination behaviour of the silver(I) cation is dependent on the isomerism of the pyridine-n-carboxy moiety. In 1 (pyridine-2-carboxylato = picolinato) both NMR and theoretical calculations strongly suggest that the coordination occurs with the lone electron pairs of the pyridine nitrogen and carbonyl oxygen in both of the arms of the molecular cleft separately. In 2 and 3 (pyridine-3-carboxylato = nicotinato and pyridine-4-carboxylato = isonicotinato) where the distance between the pyridine nitrogen and carbonyl oxygen is too large to allow the same type of coordination as in 1, 3-complexation with the pyridine ring and carbonyl oxygen of the different arms of the molecular cleft simultaneously is suggested by molecular orbital calculations and supported also by NMR. No Ag+-cation coordination was observed with the 1,2-ethanediol oxygens in 1–3.

    ABSTRACT: Despite the inherently low sensitivity of (15)N NMR because of its low gyromagnetic ratio (gamma(N)) and its relatively low natural abundance (0.37%), this important nuclide still has useful potential as a structural probe even at natural abundance. Inverse-detected NMR methods coupled with major advances in NMR probe designs have made it possible to acquire long-range (1)H-(15)N heteronuclear shift correlation data on samples as small as a micromole overnight. Chemical shift referencing schemes for (15)N and the range of (15)N shifts are discussed, followed by a discussion of the currently available pulse sequences, pulse calibration, parametrization and processing of long-range (1)H-(15)N data, and the implications of probe selection. These topics are followed by a review of the applications contained in the literature that have utilized (1)H-(15)N heteronuclear shift correlation experiments at natural abundance, with emphasis placed on the observed long-range coupling pathways.

    ABSTRACT: Lithocholic acid N-(2-aminoethyl)amide (1) and deoxycholic acid N-(2-aminoethyl)amide(2) have been prepared and characterized by1H, 13C and 15N NMR. The accurate molecular masses of 1 and 2 have been determined by ESI MS. The formation of the Cd2+-complexes (1+Cd and 2+Cd) in CD3OD solution have been detected by 1H,13C, 15N and 113Cd NMR. The 13C NMR chemical shift assignments of 1 and 2 and their Cd2+-complexes are based on DEPT-135 and z-GS 1H,13C HMQC experiments as well as comparison with the assignments of the related structures. The 15N NMR chemical shiftassignments of the ligands and theirCd2+-complexes are based on z-GS1H,15N HMBC experiments. 13C NMR chemical shift differences between 1and its 1:1 Cd2+-complex based on ab initiocalculations at Hartree-Fock SCI-PCM level using3-21G(d) basis set are in agreement with theexperimental shift changes observed onCd2+-complexation.

    ABSTRACT: Three novel bile acid-based molecular dimers, 3˛,30˛-bis(n-acetoxyphenylcarboxy)-5ˇ-cholan-24-oic acid ethane-1,2-diol diesters (n D 2–4), 1–3, were synthesized from lithocholic acid (3˛-hydroxy-5ˇ-cholan-24-oic acid) ethane-1,2-diol diester and isomeric n-acetoxybenzoyl chlorides (n D 2–4). Their cleft-type conformational preferences were suggested theoretically by PM3 molecular orbital calculations. Molecular weights determined by the matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight technique and 13C NMR chemical shifts of the 1–3 are also presented.
