Abstract [en]

Dynamic systems based on interdependent nitroaldol and boronic ester reactions have beendemonstrated. In aprotic solvents, nitroalkane-1,3-diols generated by the nitroaldol reaction weresusceptible to ester formation with different boronic acids, leading to significant stabilization of theadducts under basic conditions. Hydrolysis of the boronic esters occurred in the presence of water.The boronic ester formation was stereoselective as established using diastereomericnitroalkanediols. The use of bifunctional building blocks was furthermore established, allowing formain chain nitroaldol-boronate dynamers as well as complex dynamers with distinct topologies. Theshape and rigidity of the resulting dynamers showed apparent dependency on the configuration ofthe boronic acids.

Abstract [en]

Nature tends to inspire research in chemistry. Systems that emerge from molecules interacting via reaction networks is something that life has mastered over the course of evolution in order to produce complexity. Dynamic reactions are key in systems chemistry, where reaction networks give rise to complex, emergent behavior. This thesis aims to harness a special feature of selected dynamic reaction systems – responsiveness.The first chapter of this thesis introduces dynamic covalent chemistry and a general approach to create simple reaction networks by connecting dynamic covalent reactions. Concepts in systems chemistry are introduced in terms of network topology, responsiveness and non-equilibrium processes, while drawing parallels to natural systems.The second chapter explores the potential of the nitroaldol reaction for dynamic systems. Nitroaldol reactions are demonstrated for dynamic polymerization as well as formaldehyde-responsive breakdown of dynamic polymers. The simultaneous formation and breakdown of polymers create emergent non-equilibrium behavior. Furthermore, nitroaldol produced-diols are used in boronate ester formation. This reactivity produces interdependence over two reactions. Combining nitroaldol and boronate building blocks enabled boronate dynamers of different topology.The third chapter explores metal coordination effects in dynamic reaction networks. Novel base-free nitroaldol reactivity is exploited in reaction networks with hemiacetals. A systemic response to metals is demonstrated by hemiacetal-metal coordination. In the second half of the chapter, a biomimetic dynamic imine complex is shown to produce emergent, π-π-interactions resembling a “draw-bridge”. Variation of metal charge, effective electrostatic character of substituent and ligands gives control over the system and its emergent π-π-interactions.

Abstract [sv]

Naturen tenderar att inspirera forskning inom kemi. System uppkommer från molekyler som interagerar i reaktionsnätverk, något som levande system genom hundratusentals år av evolution har utnyttjat för att producera ständigt växande komplexitet. Dynamiska reaktioner är en nyckelkomponent i systemkemi, där reaktionsnätverk ger upphov till komplexa, emergenta beteenden. Denna avhandling syftar till att utnyttja en speciell egenskap hos dynamiska reaktionssystem - responsivitet.Det första kapitlet i denna avhandling introducerar dynamisk kovalent kemi och en allmän metod för att skapa enkla reaktionsnätverk genom att sammankoppla olika dynamiska kovalenta reaktioner. Begrepp inom systemkemi introduceras i termer av nätverkstopologi, responsivitet och reaktionssystem långt ifrån jämvikt, samtidigt som paralleller dras till naturliga system.Det andra kapitlet undersöker potentialen för nitroaldolreaktioner för dynamiska system. Nitroaldol-reaktioner används här för dynamisk polymerisation såväl som formaldehyd-responsiv nedbrytning av dynamiska polymerer. Simultan bildning och nedbrytning av polymer skapar ett emergent icke-jämviktsbeteende. Vidare används nitroaldol-producerade dioler i boronatesterbildning. Denna reaktivitet skapar en sammankoppling av två reaktioner som därmed influerar varandra. Genom att kombinera nitroaldol- och boronat-system öppnas möjligheterna att skapa boronatdynamerer av olika topologi.Det tredje kapitlet utforskar metallkoordinationseffekter i dynamiska reaktionsnätverk. Den nya basfria nitroaldolreaktionen beskriven i kapitel två utnyttjas här i ett reaktionsnätverk med hemiacetaler. Ett systemiskt svar på addition av metaller uppkommer således genom hemiacetal-metall-koordination. Under andra hälften av kapitlet demonstreras ett naturinspirerat dynamiskt iminkomplex som ger emergenta π-π-interaktioner som liknar en så kallad ”klaff-bro”. Variation av metallernas laddning samt den effektiva elektrostatiska karaktären hos substitutuenterna och liganderna ger kontroll över systemet och dess emergenta π-π-interaktioner.
