Abstract: The enthalpy (and entropy) of hydrogen bond formation has been measured between the ester carbonyl groups of the two α,β-unsaturated esters thienylacryloyl (TAOMe) and 5-methylthienylacryloyl (5MeTAOMe) methyl ester and the hydrogen bond donors ethanol, phenol and 3,5-dichlorophenol in CCl4. For the esters, the hydrogen bonding strengths were measured by quantitating the amount of bound and unbound donor, using the OH stretching region, as a function of temperature and applying the van't Hoff equation. The decrease in νCO of the ester carbonyl group upon hydrogen bond formation ΔνCO has also been measured and correlated with the enthalpy of hydrogen bond formation. A linear correlation is observed between the enthalpy of hydrogen bond formation −ΔH and ΔνCO, with −ΔH = 1.36ΔνCO − 16.1, where ΔH is measured in kJ mol−1 and Δν in cm−1. Comparison with data for other carbonyl acceptor compounds indicates that the carbonyl group of the above α,β-unsaturated esters is more readily polarized than the carbonyl group of saturated esters or ketones. The quantitative relationship between −ΔH and ΔνCO derived here has been used to determine the change in the enthalpy of hydrogen bond formation between substrate and enzyme groups in a series of acylserine proteases.
