The mechanism of the addition of a nucleophile (an alkylthiol group) to a double bond of a,b-unsaturated systems in the gas phase was explored. In this study, intermediates of the reaction were also investigated using ab initio calculations (RHF/6-31Gp and MP2/6-311Gp). Our results indicate that direct dipolar attack of the S±H group of an alkylthiol on the CyC double bond is a reasonable reaction path. The present results represent, therefore, additional support for our hypothesis. This suggests that the mechanism of cytoprotection might be mediated, at least in part, by a reaction between the ole®nic acceptor and the sulfhydrylcontaining groups of the mucosa.
