Ab initio minimal basis set quantum-chemical calculation on the interaction between methylated N-alkyl-1,4-dihydronicotinamides and the simplest keto derivative (formaldehyde) are reported. The supermolecule approach provides a distinctive improvement in the interpretation of the experimentally determined reactivity of the dihydronicotinamides in their reaction with keto compounds, as compared to previously used models (e.g. Krechl’s elongation model1,2) .
