Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: The feasibility of using Retama raetam, for the cationic dye (methylene blue) adsorption from simulated aqueous solution, has been investigated as a low cost and an eco-friendly adsorbent. The methylene blue maximum adsorption occurred at pH 8 and the lowest adsorption occurred at pH 2. The apparent equilibrium was reached after 120 min. Adsorption modelling parameters for Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms were determined and, based on R2, various error distribution functions.

Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: Geometry optimizations at the UBP86/6-311++G** level of electronic structure theory have been performed for DDT, β-hexachlorocyclohexane, and heptachlor organic polychlorides and their positive and negative ions. The geometry optimization of the obtained neutral intermediate molecules after the first and second reducing by two electrons show that the electrochemical dehalogenation of the organic poychlorides is sequential.

Natalia Gorinchoy


Field: Physical chemistry and chemical physics

Issue: 2016 Volume 11, no.2
Pages: 99-104
Keywords: Pseudo Jahn-Teller effect, orbital charge transfers, ketene excited states, metal ketene complex.

DOI:
 dx.doi.org/10.19261/cjm.2016.11(2).09
 
Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: It is shown that the only reason of structural distortions of ketene molecule coordinated in the complexes VCp2-H2C2O (I) and Pt(PPh3)2-H2C2O (II) is the pseudo Jahn-Teller effect induced by the orbital charge transfers by coordination. The η2-(C-O) coordination and the in-plane distortion of ketene in the complex (I) is due to the PJTE induced by the back donation to its LUMO 3b2. The η2-(C-C) coordination mode, and the out-of-plane distortion of the molecule in the complex (II) is caused by two OSTs: from the HOMO 2b1 to the metal, and from the dxy-AO of Pt to the vacant 3b1 MO of ketene, thus being the result of the diorbital Pt-ketene interaction.

Abstract (PDF)

dx.doi.org/10.19261/cjm.2016.11(1).01

Graphical Abstract:
 No grounded mechanisms for Co-C vitamin B12 coenzyme bond breaking process and subsequent reactions have been found up to now. The influence of the mixing orbitals e.g. Pseudo-Jahn-Teller and similar effects on the reactions paths of bond-cleavage mechanisms of vitamin B12 co-factors must be taken into account. Afterward, the updated mechanisms of vitamin B12 bio-processes can be determined.

Graphical Abstract: 
DFT method has been carried out to study the substitution effects of NO2 group on the electronic (ionization potential, electron affinity, electronegativity, hardness, softness and electrophilicity index) and IR spectral properties of biphenyl and derivative molecules by using the B3LYP functional and the 3-21G basis set, as well as the optimization structure. The calculated values of HOMO and LUMO energies, as well as predicted by ChemBioDraw program 1H and 13C NMR spectra for the studied compounds are in a good agreement with experimental data.

Graphical Abstract:
 Thermodynamic and kinetic mechanisms of forming six semicarbazones have been investigated computationally by DFT B3LYP method. All the reactions proceed via two transitions and include two consecutive steps: bimolecular and unimolecular. The computed transition steps have varying equilibrium constants values, enthalpy of activation and Gibbs energy of activation, depending on the semicarbazone involved.
