Reactions of bicyclic α-P4S3I2 with Hpthiq gave solutions containing α-P4S3(pthiq)I and α-P4S3(pthiq)2, where Hpthiq is the conformationally constrained chiral secondary amine 1-phenyl-1,2,3,4- tetrahydroisoquinoline. The expected diastereomers have been characterised by complete analysis of their 31P{1H} NMR spectra. Hindered P-N bond rotation in the amide iodide α-P4S3(pthiq)I caused greater broadening of peaks in the room-temperature spectrum of one diastereomer than in that of the other. At 183 K, spectra of two P-N bond rotamers for each diastereomer were observed and analysed. The minor rotamers showed strong evidence for steric crowding, having large diastereomeric differences in 1J(P-P) and 2J(P-S-P) couplings (49 Hz, 16% of value, and 4.4 Hz, 19 % of value, respectively). © 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
