The schiff base of gossypol with 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24-octaoxa-pentacosylamine complexes and monovalent cations studied by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry, (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance, Fourier transform infrared, as well as PM5 semiempirical methods.

A Schiff base of gossypol with 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24-octaoxa-pentacosylamine (GSOB) forms stable complexes with monovalent cations. This process of complex formation was studied by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry, (1)H-NMR and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy as well as by the PM5 semiempirical method. It was found that GSOB forms 1:6 complexes with Li(+) and Na(+), and 1:4 complexes with K(+) as well as 1:2 complexes with Rb(+) or Cs(+) cations and exists in all these complexes in the enamine-enamine tautomeric form. Moreover, within these complexes only Li(+) cations can fluctuate between the oxygen atoms of the octaoxaalkyl chains. The interactions of Li(+) cations with hydroxyl groups of the gossypol part is also possible. All other cations are much more localized. In the complex of GSOB with protons, a 1:2 stoichiometry is realized. The two protons are localized on the N atoms of the Schiff base, and the complex exists in the imine-imine tautomeric form. The structures of the complexes are calculated by PM5 semiempirical methods and discussed.[1]
