Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia
Keywords: циклодекстрины, нитрофенолы, комплексы внедрения, DFT, cyclodextrins, nitrophenols, intercalation complexes, DFT

Abstract >>
Detailed quantum mechanical calculations of the interaction of cyclodextrin (α-, β-, and γ-CD) with 4-nitrophenol (I), 4-nitro-2,6-dimethylphenol (II), 4-nitro-3,5-dimethylphenol (III), and their anions (IV-VI) with the formation of intercalation complexes are carried out for the first time. The calculations of the compounds are performed within the density functional theory by the hybrid Becke-Lee-Yang-Parr (B3LYP) method with LanL2DZ basis sets. For the α-CD+III and α-CD+VI complexes it is shown that a nitrophenol molecule of III and a nitrophenolate anion of VI are not contained in the α-CD torus, which agrees with the experimental equilibrium constants. It is found that the calculated equilibrium constants of the formation of guest-host complexes with phenolate anions are much larger than those of neutral molecules. The most stable CD complexes with nitrophenols and their anions should be expected for γ-CD. The β-CD complexes when the guest enters into the host cavity are formed only with compounds I, V, and VI.

Keywords: поликонденсация, учет растворителя, активный центр, переходное состояние, энтальпия реакции, полиариленфталиды, polycondensation, solvent effect, active center, transition state, enthalpy of the reaction, polyarylene phthalides

Abstract >>
Within the supermolecule theory, the intermolecular interaction of a monomer, a catalyst, and a solvent involved in the polycondensation of pseudochloroanhydrides of aromatic o -ketocarboxylic acids is simulated. A transition state is found in the dimerization reaction of the simplest representative of the class of 3-chloro-3-phenyl phthalylidene monomers under study. It is established that a solvent molecule (nitrobenzene) can coordinate through the functional chlorine atom of 3-chloro-3-phenyl phthalylidene, thus hindering the formation of the active center, and hence, the growth of the polymeric chain. As a rule, in the presence of nitrobenzene the activation energy of the dimerization reaction of 3-chloro-3-phenyl phthalylidene slightly lowers as compared to that in the gas phase.

Abstract >>
A genetic algorithm (GA) coupled with a tight-binding (TB) interatomic potential is used to search for the low-energy structures of medium-sized Nin (n = 36-40) clusters. Structural candidates obtained from our GA search are further optimized with first-principles calculations. The medium-sized nickel clusters ranging from 36 to 40 atoms are found to favor the double-icosahedron-based structures with a Ni7 core (a pentagonal bipyramidal structure) except Ni38 cluster. The lowest-energy structure of Ni38 can be considered to be a magic cluster, which is a typical face-centered cubic structure with large stability and magnetic moment.

Abstract >>
In this work, an atrinuclear-oxo-centered complex of the CrFe2 type with the CF2ClCOO- bridging ligand is newly synthesized. The complex is characterized by experimental and theoretical methods. The optimized geometry and theoretical vibrational frequencies are computed using the density functional theory (DFT) method. Also, the AIM analysis was applied to study changes in topological parameters such as the electron density at critical points of all the bonds of the complex. In the optimized geometry of the complex, three metal ions form a trigonal-planar structure with a m3-O atom in its center. Each of M3+ metal ions has an octahedral coordination environment of oxygen atoms. The DFT results are in agreement with the experimental ones, confirming the validity of the optimized geometry for the complex.

Abstract >>
The structures and properties of two diamond-like C-LA3 and Si-LA3 phases with crystallographically equivalent atomic sites are calculated by density functional theory with the exchange-correlation potential in the generalized gradient approximation (DFT-GGA). For these phases the structural characteristics, cohesion energies, densities of states, and bulk moduli are determined and powder diffraction patterns are calculated. It is found that the cohesion energies, band gaps, and bulk moduli of C-LA3 and Si-LA3 phases are smaller than the corresponding values of cubic diamond and silicon. Possible methods to obtain experimentally diamond-like C-LA3 and Si-LA3 phases are also analyzed in the paper.

During the fluorine doping the nearest oxygen environment of indium atoms is distorted and a part of In-O bonds is shortened. It is shown that partial fluoride ion substitution for oxygen atoms results in an increase in the proton mobility in hydrated Ba2In2O5-0.5yFy x nН2О phases.

Abstract >>
19F, 1H NMR and DSC methods are employed to study the ion mobility and phase transitions in hexafluoro complex compounds of tantalum(V), niobium(V), and titanium(IV) with a tetramethyl ammonium cation. It is found that the transformation of NMR spectra observed in the temperature range 77(130)-450 K is due to a change in the form of ion motions in the anionic and cationic sublattices of the compounds under study. The main forms of ion motions in the temperature range 170-450 K are isotropic reorientations of TaF6, NbF6, TiF6 octahedra and tetramethyl ammonium ions. Two endoeffects with the maxima at 232.5 K and 256.5 K for [N(CH3)4]TaF6 and at 235 K and 250 K for [N(CH3)4]NbF6, which are observed in the DSC curve in the range 170-400 K, correspond to phase transitions whose occurrence practically does not affect the parameters of NMR spectra in the temperature range 230-260 K. For the [N(CH3)4]2TiF6 compound an endoeffect is observed near 422 K, which corresponds to the phase transition from the rhombohedral modification to the cubic one.

Abstract >>
Quantum dots (QDs) of zinc sulfide are synthesized by a microwave method in an aqueous medium using sodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate (DS) or 4,4¢-bipyridine (BP). Based on the analysis of X-ray diffraction profiles the conclusion is drawn that QDs obtained have a structure of cubic zinc blende with an average particle size of 5.6 nm for the ZnSDS sample and 4.8 nm for ZnSBP. Transmission electron microscopy images show the presence of spherical aggregates of particles only for ZnSDS. IR data indicate the presence of sulfate ions in both samples; DS remains in the sample, facilitating the QD agglomeration, while BP is effectively washed out. From the optical diffusion scattering spectra the band gap is estimated, which turns out to be larger than the expected one due to the presence of elemental sulfur in the samples and partial oxidation of the QD surface. The QD structure based on ZnS particles is also modeled in the work. The possibility to employ X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy for the verification of atomic structural parameters around zinc sites in QDs based on zinc sulfide is demonstrated.

Abstract >>
In a recent work by Zelikman et al.(J. Struct. Chem., 2015, 56(1)), the molecular dynamics simulation of dimers of glycyrrhizic acid (GA), which arise from the spontaneous collision of two GA molecules in water, is performed. Several relatively stable dimer structures are found, and when a cholesterol molecule is inserted, associates are observed that constitute a GA dimer with a cholesterol molecule "stuck" to it. Here, we simulate the associates consisting of three and four GA molecules and a cholesterol molecule. It appears that the cholesterol molecule, as a rule, is also located at the surface of the GA associate. Therewith, trimers do not form any clear characteristic structures, as dimers do, and tetramers can be two stuck dimers.

Keywords: кажущиеся и парциальные объемы, гидратные числа, водные растворы, мочевина, соли натрия, apparent and partial volumes, hydration numbers, aqueous solutions, urea, sodium salts

Abstract >>
With an increase in the concentration of additives the hydration numbers of compounds decrease. Thus, in the saturated 54.6 % solution, urea loses approximately 3/4 of the initial amount of water, forming an aquacomplex of the composition (NH2)2COxH2O. In a supersaturated 44% solution, the sodium chloride aquacomplex is dehydrated by 2/3, and in a supersaturated 67% solution, sodium sulfate is dehydrated by 5/6. The density of these solutions is 1.354¸1.360 g/cm3 (44 % NaCl) and 1.800¸1.849 g/cm3 (67 % Na2SO4). In the saturated urea solution, NaNO3, NaCl, and Na2SO4 complexes lose 53¸55 % of hydrate water. It is shown here that in the binary water-urea system, interactions somewhat increase the hydration number of the salts (structural hydration). The characteristic important in the structural aspect (density of hydration water) increases in a series of solutions of compounds: urea, NaNO3, NaCl, and Na2SO4. In the same series of additives, an excess volume of binary water-urea and water-salt systems becomes more negative.

Abstract >>
Interest in the reduction of NiMoО4-SiO2 is related to its promising use as catalysts in hydrodeoxygenation and hydrodesulfurization processes. By means of in situ X-ray diffraction phase transformations occurring during the hydrogen reduction of NiMoO4-SiO2 in the temperature range 30-700 °C are studied in this work. It is shown that the reduction of a-NiMoО4 proceeds in two stages. At the first stage, at 400-500 °C an intermediate state forms, which is a mixed oxide (Ni,Mo,□)O and Ni1- x Mo x . At the second stage, above 650 °C, two solid solutions form based on Mo and Ni structures. By the Rietveld method the structure of the intermediate state is refined. It is shown that the mixed Ni-Mo oxide forms based on the NiO structure, which contains some amount of cation vacancies.

Abstract >>
The reaction of [W3S4(H2O)9]4+ with thiourea (tu) in hydrochloric acid produces a new cluster complex [W3S4(tu)8(H2O)]Cl4×2H2O containing coordinated thiourea. The complex is characterized by elemental analysis, thermogravimetry, IR, NMR, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry. The crystal structure is determined by X-ray analysis. The thermal decomposition of [W3S4(tu)8(H2O)]Cl4×2H2O on heating from 20 °С to 700 °С in He gives WS2, identified by the X-ray diffraction pattern. DFT calculations for [W3S4(tu)8(H2O)]4+ show that HOMO has a comparable contribution from metal- and ligand-centered atomic orbitals.

Abstract >>
A new copper(II) complex of 1,10-phenanthroline (C12H8N2) and the meta -aminobenzoate ion ( m -amb; ), having the formula Cu(C12H8N2)(C7H6NO2)Cl×0.5H2O, is prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure is built up from monomeric units in which the coordination environment around the metal ion is a square plane arising from a bidentate 1,10-phenanthroline molecule, a monodentate m -amb anion, and a chloride ion. A very long (Cu-N = 2.856(5) Å) bond to the nitrogen atom of an adjacent m -amb ion generates [101] polymeric chains in the crystal.

Keywords: spectroscopic constants, potential energy curves, extrapolation, AlC

Abstract >>
The previous multireference configuration interaction (MRCI) results show that the ground state 4S- of the AlC molecule is basically single configurational in nature. In this paper, the potential energy curve (PEC) of 4S- is calculated with the Brueckner coupled-cluster doubles with perturbative triple and quadruple corrections [BD(TQ)]. Basis set extrapolations with the correlation-consistent basis sets are performed. The efficiency and precision of the methods with different basis sets are compared. The calculated spectroscopic constants are in excellent agreement with the experimental ones. Our results reveal that the correlation from higher order excitations than doubles is very important for this system.

Abstract >>
Geometries and properties of the CpW(CO)2(m-PPh2)Mo(CO)5 complex are investigated theoretically through HF and DFT methods. Computational results reveal that the most accurate structural parameters can be predicted at the B2PLYP/SDD level of theory. AIM and NBO analyses are performed to investigate the nature of the Mo-W and the metal-carbonyl interaction in CpW(CO)2(m-PPh2)Mo(CO)5. It is confirmed that there is a Mo-W bond and a semi-bridging carbonyl group in the complex. The formation of the Mo-W bond accompanies the dominant charge transfer interactions: BD(1)Mo1-W2 ® BD*(1)Mo1-W2 and BD(2)Mo1-W2 ® BD*(2)Mo1-W2. The real interaction between W and the CO ligand coordinated to molybdenum explains the observed IR n(CO) band at 1876 cm-1 at room temperature and d(13CO) at 218.69 ppm at 210 K.

Abstract >>
The proton acceptor properties of some heterocyclic compounds of a pyrrole series are studied from the data on the self-association of molecules. It is shown that on passing from pyrrole to other compounds of this series a change in the vibrational frequency of the N-H group of associated molecules ν ас is observed. This change in the frequency is due to the inductive effect of the introduced structural fragments on the equilibrium electronic configuration of the N-H group.

Abstract >>
EPR and luminescence methods are used to study diamonds synthesized in the Mg0.9-Ge0.1-C system at high pressures and temperatures (HPHT). In the EPR spectra of the Ge doped samples, along with an impurity nitrogen atom (Р1 center) and a silicon-vacancy defect SiV0 (KUL1 center) a new paramagnetic center GeV with the spin S = 1 and D 3 d symmetry is detected. The studies performed show that this center has the structure of a double half-vacancy in the center of which there is a germanium atom. The observed GeV center is in the neutral charge state and is responsiblefor the 602 nm systems in the photoluminescence spectra.
