The conformational equilibria of 1-phenyl-1-silacyclohexane 1, 3-phenyl-1,3-thiasilacyclohexane 2, 1-methyl-1-phenyl-1-silacyclohexane 3, and 3-methyl-3-phenyl-1,3-thiasilacyclohexane 4 have been studied for the first time by low temperature 13C NMR spectroscopy at 103 K. Predominance of the equatorial conformer of compound 1 (Ph eq/Ph ax=78%:22%) is much less than in its carbon analog, phenylcyclohexane (nearly 100% of Ph eq). And in contrast to 1-methyl-1-phenylcyclohexane, the conformers with the equatorial Ph group are predominant for compounds 3 and 4: at 103 K, Ph eq/Ph ax ratios are 63%:37% (3) and 68%:32% (4). As the Si-C bonds are elongated with respect to C-C bonds, the barriers to ring inversion are only between 5.2-6.0 (ax→eq) and 5.4-6.0 (eq→ax) kcal mol -1. Parallel calculations at the DFT and MP2 level of theory (as well as the G2 calculations for compound 1) show qualitative agreement with the experiment. The additivity/nonadditivity of conformational energies of substituents on cyclohexane and silacyclohexane derivatives is analyzed. The geminally disubstituted cyclohexanes containing a phenyl group show large deviations from additivity, whereas in 1-methyl-1-phenyl-1-silacyclohexane and 3-methyl-3-phenyl-1,3-thiasilacyclohexane the effects of the methyl and phenyl groups are almost additive. The reasons for the different conformational preferences in carbocyclic and heterocyclic compounds are analyzed using the homodesmotic reactions approach. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Stereochemical studies on silaheterocyclohexanes is a 'hot topic' as evidenced by the growing number of publications. During last 10 years a substantial number of substituted silacyclohexanes and heterocyclohexanes containing sulfur, oxygen or nitrogen as the second (or third) heteroatom have been synthesized and studied by variable temperature dynamic NMR spectroscopy, gas-phase electron diffraction, variable temperature IR, Raman, microwave spectroscopy with respect to thermodynamic (frozen conformational equilibria) and kinetic (barrier to ring inversion) information. As the stereochemistry of cyclohexane and its N-, O-, P-, S-hetero analogues is one of keystones of modern theoretical and synthetic organic and heterocyclic chemistry, the stereochemistry of silacyclohexane and its hetero analogs is an important element of theoretical and synthetic organosilicon chemistry. The various classes of saturated six-membered rings were critically compared and studied in detail with respect to differences in their stereochemistry and dynamic behavior. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Current battery technologies for hybrid (HEVs) and small electric vehicles (EVs) have technological, cost or environmental limitations. Despite this, the global market for HEVs and EVs is growing rapidly and is expected to top $2billion by 2015. The PolyZion project will create a new class of fast rechargeable zinc-polymer battery for hybrid and small electric vehicle applications. The research programme combines fundamental material and process advances in ionic liquids, rechargeable zinc electrodes, ultra-fast pulse charge injection techniques and conducting polymers, as well as constructing prototypes battery units for industry standard testing. The resulting battery device will be low cost, have low environmental impact and have the energy and power density necessary to compete will alternative battery technologies inthe HEV and EV markets. PolyZion is a European-led consortium combining world-class research organisations in ionic liquids, conducting polymers, zinc deposition, pulse charging and batteries, as well as SME partners with expertise in technology development and specialised materials, and large industrial partners with industrial experience of battery manufacture and state-of-the-art testing facilities. The consortium also includes 2 organisations with world-class research expertise from an Emerging Economy (Russia) and a High Income (Canada) countries outside the EU.
