Abstract: To assess the donor-acceptor properties of the basic and acidic sites inpyrrolyl and diazolyl derivatives of cycloalkanones, the energies and the shapesof the frontier molecular orbitals of their tautomers and conformers werecalculated and the maps of the charge density distribution were constructed. Thecompetition of these sites in the formation of hydrogen and coordination bondsand the possibility of participation of the studied products as ligands in metalcomplexes were shown. Complexes of diazolyl derivatives withCuCl2 were obtained. The synthesis of7-amino-2-(pyrrolidin-2-ylmethylene)indan-1-one was performed and its structureand propensity to UV-initiated E→Z isomerization were studied by NMR and IRspectroscopy.
