Abstract: Symmetrical and non-symmetrical diimines derived from dimedone were synthesized by the reaction of their corresponding enaminothiones with primary amines. The synthesized compounds were characterized using micro analytical data and NMR spectroscopy. Theoretical calculations by B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level of theory show that the enolic form is the most stable within the possible tautomeric forms of the compounds.
Keywords: dimedone; diimines; enaminothiones; B3LYP/6-31G(d; p)
