Resumen

The regioselectivity of the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (13DC) reactions of benzonitrile N-oxides (BNOs) with electrophilic and nucleophilic alkenes has been analyzed by using global and local nucleophilicity and electrophilicity reactivity indices defined within the conceptual DFT. The BNOs react with, electron-deficient and electron-rich ethylenes, but the regioselectivities of these polar reactions are different. Whereas the reactions with electron-rich ethylenes are completely regioselective, yielding 5-isoxazolines, a change in the regioselectivity is observed in the reactions with electron-deficient ethylenes, which yield a mixture of 4- and 5isoxazolines. Analysis of the energies, geometries, and electronic structures of the transition-state structures involved in the 13DC reactions between the BNOs and two electronically activated ethylenes are in complete agreement with, the analysis of the global and local electrophilicity and nucleophilicity reactivity indices.
