The experimental31 reactivity sequence of a series of methyl substituted 1-(2,6-dichlorobenzyl)-1,4-dihydronicotinamides is compared with the results of an ab-initio STO-3G quantum-chemical calculations on the corresponding 1-methyl compounds. The molecules were studied both in approximative equilibrium geometry and geometries distorted towards a possible transition state. The theoretical results are successfully confronted with the experimental data.
