  1. Azines as histamine H4 receptor antagonists. (United States)

    Lazewska, Dorota; Kiec-Kononowicz, Katarzyna


    Since 2000, when the histamine H4 receptor (H4R) was cloned, it has constituted an interesting target for drug development. Pharmacological studies suggest the potential utility of histamine H4R antagonists/inverse agonists in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, e.g. allergic rhinitis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, colitis, or pruritus. The first H4R ligands were non-selective compounds, but intensive chemical and pharmacological work has led to the discovery of highly potent and selective H4R antagonists (e.g. JNJ7777120, CZC-13788, PF-2988403, A-940894, A-987306). The first compound (UR-63325) has finally entered into clinical studies for the treatment of allergic respiratory diseases (completing the phase I ascending dose trial) and has been found to be safe and well tolerated. The number of scientific publications and patent applications in the H4 field is increasing annually. Among the diverse chemical structures of the H4R antagonists described a 2-aminopyrimidine scaffold is repeatedly found. This review looked at recent advances in the search for H4R antagonists as reflected in patent applications/patents and peer-reviewed publications over the last two years. The work concerns azines (mono-, di-, triazines) and their fused analogues. The chemistry and pharmacology has been described. PMID:22202103

    Chen, Xiao-tong, E-mail: [Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084 (China); Tong, Ai-jun [Key Laboratory of Bioorganic Phosphorus Chemistry and Chemical Biology (Ministry of Education), Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084 (China)


    This study investigates the heavy-atom effect (HAE) on aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) properties of salicylaldehyde azines. For this purpose, a series of halogenated salicylaldehyde azine derivatives, namely, chloro-salicylaldehyde azine (1), bromo-salicylaldehyde azine (2) and iodo-salicylaldehyde azine (3) are synthesized. 1 and 2 display typical AIEE characteristics of salicylaldehyde azine compounds; whereas for the iodo-substituent in 3, is found to be effective “external” heavy atom quenchers to salicylaldehyde azine fluorescence in aggregated state. Based on its weak fluorescence in aggregated state and relative strong fluorescence in dispersed state, 3 can also be applied as a turn-on fluorescence probe for egg albumin detection attributed to hydrophobic interaction. -- Highlights: • This study investigates the heavy-atom effect (HAE) on aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) properties of salicylaldehyde azines. • Chloro- and bromo-salicylaldehyde display typical AIEE properties of salicylaldehyde azine, whereas the iodo-substitute quenches AIEE in aggregated state. • Iodo-salicylaldehyde can be applied as a turn-on fluorescence probe for egg albumin detection attributed to hydrophobic interaction.

  3. Expression of ODC Antizyme Inhibitor 2 (AZIN2) in Human Secretory Cells and Tissues. (United States)

    Rasila, Tiina; Lehtonen, Alexandra; Kanerva, Kristiina; Mäkitie, Laura T; Haglund, Caj; Andersson, Leif C


    Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) antizyme inhibitor 2 (AZIN2), originally called ODCp, is a regulator of polyamine synthesis that we originally identified and cloned. High expression of ODCp mRNA was found in brain and testis. We reported that AZIN2 is involved in regulation of cellular vesicle transport and / or secretion, but the ultimate physiological role(s) of AZIN2 is still poorly understood. In this study we used a peptide antibody (K3) to human AZIN2 and by immunohistochemistry mapped its expression in various normal tissues. We found high expression in the nervous system, in type 2 pneumocytes in the lung, in megakaryocytes, in gastric parietal cells co-localized with H,K-ATPase beta subunit, in selected enteroendocrine cells, in acinar cells of sweat glands, in podocytes, in macula densa cells and epithelium of collecting ducts in the kidney. The high expression of AZIN2 in various cells with secretory or vesicle transport activity indicates that the polyamine metabolism regulated by AZIN2 is more significantly involved in these events than previously appreciated.

  7. Generation of semicarbazide from natural azine development in foods, followed by reaction with urea compounds. (United States)

    Abernethy, Grant A


    This paper proposes a mechanism to explain the trace levels of natural semicarbazide occasionally observed in foods. The analytical derivative of semicarbazide, 2-nitrobenzaldehyde semicarbazone, is often measured as a metabolite marker to detect the widely banned antibiotic nitrofurazone. However, this marker is not specific as semicarbazide may be present in foods for several reasons other than exposure to nitrofurazone. In some cases, an entirely natural origin of semicarbazide is suspected, although up until now there was no explanation about how semicarbazide could occur naturally. In this work, semicarbazide is proposed as being generated from natural food compounds via an azine intermediate. Hydrazine, in the form of azines or hydrazones, may be generated in dilute aqueous solution from the natural food compounds ammonia, hydrogen peroxide and acetone, following known oxidation chemistry. When this mixture was prepared in the presence of ureas such as allantoin, urea, biuret or hydroxyurea, and then analysed by the standard method for the determination of semicarbazide, 2-nitrobenzaldehyde semicarbazone was detected. 2-Nitrobenzaldehyde aldazine was also found, and it may be a general marker for azines in foods. This proposal, that azine formation is central to semicarbazide development, provides a convergence of the published mechanisms for semicarbazide. The reaction starts with hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, atmospheric oxygen or hypochlorite; generates hydrazine either by an oxaziridine intermediate or via the chlorination of ammonia; and then either route may converge on azine formation, followed by reaction with a urea compound. Additionally, carbamate ion may speculatively generate semicarbazide by reaction with hydrazine, which might be a significant route in the case of the hypochlorite treatment of foods or food contact surfaces. Significantly, detection of 2-nitrobenzaldehyde semicarbazone may be somewhat artefactual because semicarbazide can

    Oligonucleotides carrying novel fluorescent compounds with a dipolar isoquinoline imidazo[1,2-a]azine core were prepared. Analysis of the melting curves demonstrates that DNA duplexes carrying these fluorescent labels at their ends have a slight increase in DNA duplex stability. The UV absorption and fluorescent properties of the oligonucleotide conjugates were analyzed. The fluorescent label is sensitive to duplex formation, as cooperative melting curves are also observed at 366 nm and fluor...

    Dimethyltin dichloride react with 2-ac ethylpyridine benzophenone azine (apba) in refluxing dry hexane to give (SnMe2 Cl2 (apba)) where the azine ligand acts as a bidentate N-N chelating ligand. The complex has been characterized by IR spectroscopy, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic data and elemental analyses. The crystal structure of the dimethyltin(IV) derivative has also been determined. Crystals are monoclinic with space group P2(1)/n with cell dimensions: a = 10.1819(3) Armstrong, b = 18.3113(5) Armstrong, c = 12.6451(4) Armstrong

    Full Text Available Some new boron complexes have been synthesized by the reaction of triisopropohxyborane with the mixed azines, prepared by the condensation of salicylaldehyde and hydrazine with aldehydes/ketones in a 1:1:1 mole ratio to give a new series of (OPri2B(NO type of complexes. Their structures were confirmed on the basis of elemental analyses, ultraviolet, infrared, 1H-NMR and 11B-NMR spectral studies. The ligands and their boron complexes were also screened for their antifungal activity. Several of these complexes were found to be quite active in this respect.

  11. Long-living structures of photochromic salicylaldehyde azine: polarity and viscosity effects from nanoseconds to hours. (United States)

    Ziółek, Marcin; Burdziński, Gotard; Douhal, Abderrazzak


    In this study, we report on the effects of solvent viscosity and polarity on the photochromic salicylaldehyde azine (SAA) molecule by examining the steady-state and UV-visible absorption results in the time scale from nanoseconds to hours, in solution and in a polymer film. For the neutral structure, the viscosity strongly affects the lifetime of the photochromic (trans-keto) tautomer by suppressing the second order quenching process, and thus increasing the photochrome lifetimes in highly viscous solvents to 500 μs in polar triacetine, and to 65 μs in non-polar squalane. Trapping SAA in a non-polar polymer film (polyethylene) results in further elongation of the photochromic lifetime (700 μs) by one order of magnitude (with respect to that in squalane), due to the retardation of the intramolecular back-isomerization. Another species, living significantly longer and absorbing more in the UV comparing to the photochrome, was identified as the syn-enol tautomer. The lifetime of this tautomer, created in a competitive mechanism to the photochrome creation, is much longer in non-polar solvents (hundreds of minutes) than in polar ones (tens of minutes), opposite to the trend observed for the photochrome. For the SAA anion, the transient living on the ns-μs time scale can be exclusively assigned to the triplet state, which is not observed for the neutral form at room temperature.

    Ayadi, Awatef; Mydlova, Lucia; Zouari, Nabil; Makowska-Janusik, Malgorzata; Sahraoui, Bouchta; El-Ghayoury, Abdelkrim


    The synthesis and detailed characterization of two tetrathiafulvalene-appended azine derivatives, namely 2-([2,2‧-bi(1,3-dithiolylidene)]-4-yl)-6-((2,4-dimethylphenyl)hydrazono) methyl)pyridine (L1) and 5-([2,2‧-bi(1,3-dithiolylidene)]-4-yl)-2-((2,4-dimethylphenyl)hydrazono) methyl)pyridine (L2) are described. The crystal structure of ligand L2 indicates that the mentioned molecule is completely planar with the presence of a strong intramolecular N1sbnd H1⋯N3 hydrogen bonding. The quantum chemical calculations show that the intermolecular interaction in crystal structure does not affect the HOMO and LUMO orbitals present in isolated molecule. The optical properties of these ligands indicate the presence of intramolecular charge transfer band in the case of ligand L2 while the electrochemical behavior of the two compounds indicates that they are valuable candidates for the construction of crystalline radical cation salts.

  13. An Azine-Linked Covalent Organic Framework: Synthesis, Characterization and Efficient Gas Storage. (United States)

    Li, Zhongping; Zhi, Yongfeng; Feng, Xiao; Ding, Xuesong; Zou, Yongcun; Liu, Xiaoming; Mu, Ying


    A azine-linked covalent organic framework, COF-JLU2, was designed and synthesized by condensation of hydrazine hydrate and 1,3,5-triformylphloroglucinol under solvothermal conditions for the first time. The new covalent organic framework material combines permanent micropores, high crystallinity, good thermal and chemical stability, and abundant heteroatom activated sites in the skeleton. COF-JLU2 possesses a moderate BET surface area of over 410 m(2)  g(-1) with a pore volume of 0.56 cm(3)  g(-1) . Specifically, COF-JLU2 displays remarkable carbon dioxide uptake (up to 217 mg g(-1) ) and methane uptake (38 mg g(-1) ) at 273 K and 1 bar, as well as high CO2 /N2 (77) selectivity. Furthermore, we further highlight that it exhibits a higher hydrogen storage capacity (16 mg g(-1) ) than those of reported COFs at 77 K and 1 bar.

    Full Text Available The synthesis and full characterization of two tetrathiafulvalene-appended azine ligands, namely 2-([2,2’-bi(1,3-dithiolylidene]-4-yl-6-((2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazonomethylpyridine (L1 and 5-([2,2’-bi(1,3-dithiolylidene]-4-yl-2-((2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazonomethylpyridine (L2 are described. The crystal structure of ligand L1 indicates that the ligand is completely planar with the presence of a strong intramolecular N3–H3···O1 hydrogen bonding. Titration experiments with inorganic anions showed that both ligands are suitable candidates for the sensing of fluoride anions. Ligand L2 was reacted with a Re(I cation to yield the corresponding rhenium tricarbonyl complex 3. In the crystal structure of the newly prepared electroactive rhenium complex the TTF is neutral and the rhenium cation is hexacoordinated. The electrochemical behavior of the three compounds indicates that they are promising for the construction of crystalline radical cation salts.

  15. Thermodynamic approach of the poly-azine - f element ions interaction in aqueous conditions

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Miguirditchian, M.; Guillaumont, D.; Moisy, P.; Guillaneux, D.; Madic, C


    2-Amino-4,6-di-(pyridine-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazine (Adptz) was considered as a model compound for selective aromatic nitrogen extractants (poly-azines) of minor actinides. Thermodynamic data ( {delta}G{sup 0}, {delta}H{sup 0}, {delta}S{sup 0}) were systematically acquired for the complexation of lanthanide(III) ions as well as yttrium(III) and americium(III) in hydro-alcoholic medium. Two complementary experimental approaches were followed. Stability constants for the formation of the 1:1 complexes were evaluated from UV-visible spectrophotometry titration experiments, whereas enthalpies and entropies of reaction were obtained consistently from either temperature dependence experiments or micro-calorimetry. The interaction of Adptz with lanthanide(III) and yttrium(III) ions was found to be essentially ionic and dependent upon the hydration and size of the ion. As for americium(III) ion, stability constant and enthalpy of complexation was significantly larger. This was attributed to a partial electronic transfer from the ligand to empty orbitals of the cation. DFT calculations support this interpretation. (authors)

  16. Protonation of azines and purines as a model for the electrophilic aromatic substitution - rationalization by triadic formula. (United States)

    Vianello, Robert


    First gas-phase carbon proton affinities of eleven azines and purines (pyrrole, pyrazole, imidazole, pyridine, pyridazine, pyrimidine, pyrazine, bicyclic purine, pyridine-N-oxide, 2-aminopyrimidine and uracil) were calculated by a composite G3B3 methodology and used to probe their susceptibility to undergo electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS), taking benzene as a reference molecule. The results revealed excellent agreement with the available experimental data and were interpreted using the triadic approach. We found out that pyrroles, which are more reactive towards EAS reaction than benzene, are stronger carbon bases than the latter compound, whereas pyridines exhibit lower carbon basicity, being at the same time less reactive toward substitution by electrophiles than benzene. In all of the investigated molecules the frontier orbital describing the corresponding p-electron density at the carbon atom to be protonated is HOMO as calculated by the HF/G3large//B3LYP/6-31G(d) level of theory. Our results are in a disagreement with the work by D'Auria (M. D'Auria, Tetrahedron Lett. 2005, 46, 6333-6336; Lett. Org. Chem. 2005, 2, 659-661), who at B3LYP/6-311+G(d, p) level found out that in some of systems investigated here the HOMO orbital is not of -symmetry, which was used to rationalize the lower reactivity of these systems towards EAS. It turned out that energies of HOMO orbitals alone correlate very poorly with carbon proton affinities, unlike the difference in proton affinities between the most basic carbon atom and thermodynamically the most favourable site of protonation, which performs much better. Triadic analysis demonstrated the importance of considering a complete picture of the protonation process and all three terms appearing in the triadic scheme individually when discussing trends in basicity/nucleophilicity of closely related molecules.

  17. A combined experimental and DFT study of a novel unsymmetrical azine 2-(4-methoxybenzylidene)-1-(1-(4-isobutylphenyl) ethylidene) hydrazine (United States)

    Vijaya, P.; Sankaran, K. R.


    A novel unsymmetrical azine 2-(4-methoxybenzylidene)-1-(1-(4-isobutylphenyl) ethylidene) hydrazine (UA) was prepared and characterized by IR, 1H and 13C NMR spectral studies. A 2D - potential energy scan (PES) of p-isobutylacetophenone (IBAP) was the portal to the conformational analysis of UA by density functional theory (DFT) methods using 6-31G(d,p) basis set by Gaussian 03 program. The theoretical IR frequencies were found to be in good agreement with the experimental values. The IR frequencies of UA were analyzed by means of Potential energy Distribution (PED %) calculation using Vibrational Energy Distribution Analysis (VEDA 4) program. The experimental NMR chemical shift values of UA were compared with the theoretical values obtained by DFT method. Nonlinear optical behavior of the unsymmetrical azine is also examined by the theoretically predicted values of dipole moment (μ), polarizability (α0) and first hyperpolarizability (βtot). Stability of the UA molecule has been analyzed using NBO analysis. The electrochemistry of UA studied experimentally by cyclic voltammetry is complemented by the computational analysis of the anionic form of the molecule UA. The determination of various global and local reactivity descriptors in the context of chemical reactivity is also performed and the electrophilicity at the vital atomic sites in UA is revealed. Bader's Atoms in molecules (AIM) theory of UA indicated the presence of intramolecular hydrogen bonding in the molecule. The molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) and HOMO-LUMO orbital analysis are also performed for the molecule UA.

  18. A highly selective colorimetric and "turn-on" fluorimetric chemosensor for detecting CN(-) based on unsymmetrical azine derivatives in aqueous media. (United States)

    Sun, You; Hu, Jing-Han; Qi, Jing; Li, Jian-Bin


    A novel highly selective chemosensor S1 for cyanide based on unsymmetrical azine derivative was successfully designed and synthesized, which showed both colorimetric and fluorescence turn-on responses for cyanide ions in aqueous. This structurally simple chemosensor could detect CN(-) anion over other anions in aqueous solution DMSO/H2O (v/v=3:2) undergo deprotonation reaction. Results showed that the chemosensor S1 exhibited 50 fold enhancement in fluorescence at 530nm and showed an obvious change in color from colorless to yellow that could be detected by naked eye under the UV-lamp after the addition of CN(-) in aqueous solution. Moreover, the detection limit on fluorescence response of the sensor to CN(-) is down to 6.17×10(-8)M by titration method. Test strips based on S1 were obtain, which could be used as a convenient and efficient CN(-) test kit to detect CN(-) in aqueous solution. PMID:27261890

    Vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) data for acetone-azine binary system and parts of acetone water azine ternary system were determined in an Othmer equilibrium at atmospheric pressure (101.3 kPa). The experimental data was verified by Herington method and were consistent with thermodynamics. The data of acetone-azine binary system were correlated with the NRTL,Wilson and UNIQUAC models by using chemical engineering analogue software. Respectively,all the models were correlated well with the VLE data. NRTL model produced best data,with the average deviations of temperature of 0.0639 K and vapor-phase mole fraction of methanol of 0.0048. The NRTL model was used to correlate the VLE data of the ternary system,and the interaction parameters of acetone-azine,water-azine,and acetone-water were obtained. In order to verify the reliability of the VLE data of the ternary system and these interacting binary parameters,the vapor compositions were calculated and compared with the corresponding experimental VLE data of acetone-azine binary system. The agreement between the calculated and experimental data was satisfactory. The experimental and correlative data could provide a basis for distillation separation of acetone-water-azine’s VLE system.%采用汽液双循环平衡釜,在常压(101.3 kPa)下测定了丙酮-丙酮连氮二元组分物系以及部分丙酮-水-丙酮连氮三元组分物系的汽液平衡数据。实验数据经Herington面积积分法检验符合热力学一致性。通过化工过程模拟软件,分别采用 Wilson、NRTL、UNIQUAC 活度系数模型对丙酮-丙酮连氮二元组分物系实验数据进行关联得到模型参数。并对汽液平衡的计算值与实验值进行比较,3种模型都吻合良好,其中由NRTL方程关联得到的计算结果最为适合,平均温度偏差和汽相组成偏差分别为0.0639 K和0.0048。从三元汽液相平衡数据中拟合出了丙酮-丙酮连氮、丙酮-

  9. Application of 2-Trichloromethylbenzimidazole in Analytical Chemistry: A Highly Selective Chromogenic Reagent for Thin-Layer Chromatography and Some Other Analytical Uses

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leszek Konopski


    Full Text Available 2-Trichloromethylbenzimidazole (TCMB was used as a chromogenic reagent in organic or inorganic analysis, mainly in thin-layer chromatography (TLC. In reactions of TCMB with some heteroaromatic nitrogen containing compounds, such as azines, azoles and benzazoles, a formation of high colored products occurred. For azines, the chromogenic reaction was highly regioselective, since the both adjacent α-positions versus the nitrogen atom(s must not be substituted. A TLC method of detection was developed. Thirty azines, azoles, and benzazoles were detected at the detection limit 10 ng to 1 μg. This method was also applied for detection of heteroaromatic pesticides, and the attempts to construct active and passive dosimeters for nicotine were made. In a prechromatographic reaction of aromatic o-diamines with methyl trichloroacetimidate, TCMB or its derivatives were formed in situ. Followed by TLC and visualization in pyridine vapors, this procedure was applied for detection of o-phenylenediamine derivatives. The reaction product of TCMB and pyridine (LI Complex was identified and fully characterized. Two different reaction mechanisms: with electron deficient basic heteroaromatic compounds, like pyridine, and with more acidic compounds, for example, pyrrole, were discussed. In aqueous solutions, the LI Complex may be also used as a new indicator for complexometric, adsorption and acid-base titration of inorganic compounds.

    Full Text Available The present review deals with the preparation and the properties of star-shaped conjugated compounds. Three, four or six conjugated arms are attached to cross-conjugated cores, which consist of single atoms (B, C+, N, benzene or azine rings or polycyclic ring systems, as for example triphenylene or tristriazolotriazine. Many of these shape-persistent [n]star compounds tend to π-stacking and self-organization, and exhibit interesting properties in materials science: Linear and non-linear optics, electrical conductivity, electroluminescence, formation of liquid crystalline phases, etc.

  13. Interactions of aromatic heterocycles with water: the driving force from free-jet rotational spectroscopy and model electrostatic calculations. (United States)

    Maris, Assimo; Melandri, Sonia; Miazzi, Marta; Zerbetto, Francesco


    The interaction of isolated aromatic nitrogen atoms with water is explored within free jets by using rotational spectroscopy. To the existing data on diazines, we add the case of the 1:1 complex of 1,3,5-triazine and water (where water donates a proton to one of the nitrogen heterocyclic atoms to form a planar adduct). An electrostatic model based on distributed multipoles accurately reproduces the structures of the four azine-water complexes and allows us to understand the forces that stabilize these structures. The applied intermolecular potential allows us to estimate the changes in the thermodynamic functions of the complexes-compared to the separated constituents-and evaluate the temperature at which the complexes are stable under standard conditions.

  14. Increased generation of intracellular reactive oxygen species initiates selective cytotoxicity against the MCF-7 cell line resultant from redox active combination therapy using copper-thiosemicarbazone complexes. (United States)

    Akladios, Fady N; Andrew, Scott D; Parkinson, Christopher J


    The combination of cytotoxic copper-thiosemicarbazone complexes with phenoxazines results in an up to 50-fold enhancement in the cytotoxic potential of the thiosemicarbazone against the MCF-7 human breast adenocarcinoma cell line over the effect attributable to drug additivity-allowing minimization of the more toxic copper-thiosemicarbazone component of the therapy. The combination of a benzophenoxazine with all classes of copper complex examined in this study proved more effective than combinations of the copper complexes with related isoelectronic azines. The combination approach results in rapid elevation of intracellular reactive oxygen levels followed by apoptotic cell death. Normal fibroblasts representative of non-cancerous cells (MRC-5) did not display a similar elevation of reactive oxygen levels when exposed to similar drug levels. The minimization of the copper-thiosemicarbazone component of the therapy results in an enhanced safety profile against normal fibroblasts. PMID:26951232

  16. Library of UV-Vis-NIR reflectance spectra of modern organic dyes from historic pattern-card coloured papers. (United States)

    Montagner, Cristina; Bacci, Mauro; Bracci, Susanna; Freeman, Rachel; Picollo, Marcello


    An accurate characterisation of the organic dyes used in artworks, especially those made of paper, is an important factor in designing safe conservation treatments. In the case of synthetic organic dyes used in modern works of art, for example, one frequently encountered difficulty is that some of these dyes are not still commercially available. Recognizing this problem, the authors of this paper present the results of an analysis of UV-Vis-NIR fibre optic reflectance spectra of 82 samples of dyed paper prepared with 41 dyes. The samples come from a historic book, The Dyeing of Paper in the Pulp, which was published by Interessen-Gemeinschaft (I.G.) Farbenindustrie in 1925. The dyes used in the paper pulp belong to the azo compounds, acridine, anthraquinone, azine, diphenylmethane, indigoid, methine, nitro, quinoline, thiazine, triphenylmethane, sulphur and xanthene classes.

    Full Text Available Oxazine derivatives are an important class of heterocycles, which has attracted much synthetic interest due to their wide range of biological activities. Oxazine is a heterocyclic compound can be formally derived from benzene, and its reduction products, by suitable substitution of carbon (and hydrogen atoms by nitrogen and oxygen. In the last few years oxazine derivatives have proved to be valuable synthetic intermediates and also possess important biological activities like sedative, analgesic, antipyretic, anticonvulsant, antitubercular, antitumour, antimalarial and antimicrobial. In these days, development of drug resistance is a major problem and to overcome this situation, it is necessary to synthesize new classes of compounds. The aim of the article is to review the generalization of the collected data about the synthesis of oxazine derivatives and their activities. We hope that this work will be a definite interest for researchers concerned with azines in generally and oxazines in particular.

  18. Laboratory Evaluation of the Toxicity of Systemic Insecticides to Emerald Ash Borer Larvae. (United States)

    Poland, Therese M; Ciaramitaro, Tina M; McCullough, Deborah G


    Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), an invasive phloem-feeding insect native to Asia, threatens at least 16 North American ash (Fraxinus) species and has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in landscapes and forests. We conducted laboratory bioassays to assess the relative efficacy of systemic insecticides to control emerald ash borer larvae in winter 2009 and 2010. Second- and third-instar larvae were reared on artificial diet treated with varying doses of emamectin benzoate (TREE-äge, Arborjet, Inc., Woburn, MA), imidacloprid (Imicide, J. J Mauget Co., Arcadia, CA), dinotefuran (Safari, Valent Professional Products, Walnut Creek, CA), and azadirachtin (TreeAzin, BioForest Technologies, Inc., Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Azasol, Arborjet, Inc., Woburn, MA). All of the insecticides were toxic to emerald ash borer larvae, but lethal concentrations needed to kill 50% of the larvae (LC50), standardized by larval weight, varied with insecticide and time. On the earliest date with a significant fit of the probit model, LC50 values were 0.024 ppm/g at day 29 for TREE-äge, 0.015 ppm/g at day 63 for Imicide, 0.030 ppm/g at day 46 for Safari, 0.025 ppm/g at day 24 for TreeAzin, and 0.027 ppm/g at day 27 for Azasol. The median lethal time to kill 50% (LT50) of the tested larvae also varied with insecticide product and dose, and was longer for Imicide and Safari than for TREE-äge or the azadirachtin products. Insecticide efficacy in the field will depend on adult and larval mortality as well as leaf and phloem insecticide residues. PMID:26721288

    Cloud-point extraction was applied as a preconcentration of nickel after formation of complex with newly synthesized N-quino[8,7-b]azin-5-yl-2,3,5,6,8,9,11,12octahydrobenzo[b][1,4,7,10,13] pentaoxacyclopentadecin-15-yl-methanimine, and later determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) using octyl phenoxy polyethoxy ethanol (Triton X-114) as surfactant. Nickel was complexed with N-quino[8,7-b]azin-5-yl-2,3,5,6,8,9,11,12 octahydrobenzo[b][1,4,7,10,13]pentaoxacyclopentadecin-15-yl-methanimine in an aqueous phase and was kept for 15 min in a thermo-stated bath at 40 deg. C. Separation of the two phases was accomplished by centrifugation for 15 min at 4000 rpm. The chemical variables affecting the cloud-point extraction were evaluated, optimized and successfully applied to the nickel determination in various water samples. Under the optimized conditions, the preconcentration system of 100 ml sample permitted an enhancement factor of 50-fold. The detailed study of various interferences made the method more selective. The detection limits obtained under optimal condition was 0.042 ng ml{sup -1}. The extraction efficiency was investigated at different nickel concentrations (20-80 ng ml{sup -1}) and good recoveries (99.05-99.93%) were obtained using present method. The proposed method has been applied successfully for the determination of nickel in various water samples and compared with reported method in terms of Student's t-test and variance ratio f-test which indicate the significance of present method over reported and spectrophotometric methods at 95% confidence 0011lev.

  20. Development of a microfluidic paper-based analytical device for the determination of salivary aldehydes. (United States)

    Ramdzan, Adlin N; Almeida, M Inês G S; McCullough, Michael J; Kolev, Spas D


    A low cost, disposable and easy to use microfluidic paper-based analytical device (μPAD) was developed for simple and non-invasive determination of total aldehydes in saliva with a potential to be used in epidemiological studies to assess oral cancer risk. The μPAD is based on the colour reaction between aldehydes (e.g. acetaldehyde, formaldehyde), 3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone hydrazone (MBTH) and iron(III) to form an intense blue coloured formazan dye. The newly developed μPAD has a 3D design with two overlapping paper layers. The first layer comprises 15 circular detection zones (8 mm in diameter), each impregnated with 8 μL of MBTH, while the second layer contains 15 reagent zones (4 mm in diameter). Two μL of iron(III) chloride are added to each one of the second layer zones after the addition of sample to the detection zones in the first layer. All hydrophilic zones of the μPAD are defined by wax printing using a commercial wax printer. Due to the 2-step nature of the analytical reaction, the two paper layers are separated by a cellulose acetate interleaving sheet to allow for the reaction between the aldehydes in the saliva sample with MBTH to proceed first with the formation of an azine, followed by a blue coloured reaction between the azine and the oxidized by iron(III) form of MBTH, produced after the removal of the interleaving sheet. After obtaining a high resolution image of the detection side zone of the device using a flatbed scanner, the intensity of the blue colour within each detection zone is measured with Image J software. Under optimal conditions, the μPAD is characterised by a working range of 20.4-114.0 μM, limit of detection of 6.1 μM, and repeatability, expressed as RSD, of less than 12.7% (n = 5). There is no statistically significant difference at the 95% confidence level between the results obtained by the μPAD and the reference method (Student's t-test: 0.090 < 0.38). The optimized μPAD is stable for more than 41 days

    The use of anabolic steroids is prohibited in sports. Effective control is done by monitoring their metabolites in urine samples collected from athletes. Ethical objections however restrict the use of designer steroids in human administration studies. To overcome these problems alternative in vitro and in vivo models were developed to identify metabolites and to assure a fast response by anti-doping laboratories to evolutions on the steroid market. In this study human liver microsomes and an uPA(+/+) -SCID chimeric mouse model were used to elucidate the metabolism of a steroid product called 'Xtreme DMZ'. This product contains the designer steroid dimethazine (DMZ), which consists of two methasterone molecules linked by an azine group. In the performed stability study, degradation from dimethazine to methasterone was observed. By a combination of LC-High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) and GC-MS(/MS) analysis methasterone and six other dimethazine metabolites (M1-M6), which are all methasterone metabolites, could be detected besides the parent compound in both models. The phase II metabolism of dimethazine was also investigated in the mouse urine samples. Only metabolites M1 and M2 were exclusively detected in the glucuro-conjugated fraction; all other compounds were also found in the free fraction. For effective control of DMZ misuse in doping control samples, screening for methasterone and methasterone metabolites should be sufficient. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. PMID:26663462

  2. Gota suspensa para avaliação de aldeído total no ar interno e externo do ambiente Suspended droplet for evaluation of total aldehyde in outdoor and indoor ambient

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elisabete A. Pereira


    Full Text Available A sensitive and simple system was proposed for the in situ measurement of total aldehyde in outdoor or indoor ambient. The method is based on the use of a reagent drop as an useful interface to preconcentrate the sample prior to determination of total aldehyde as formaldehyde. The drop is formed at the tip of a cylindrical tube that contains two optical fibers placed on opposite sides and in contact with the reagent solution. One optical fiber carries the red light to the drop form a light emitting diode (LED. The transmitted light is measured by a second optical fiber/photodiode system. The analytical signal is read and converted into absorbance. The reagent solution of 3-methyl-2-benzothiazoline hydrazone (MBTH forms a blue cation during reaction with formaldehyde that can be measured at 660 nm. Some aspects of kinetics reaction formation of dye were reevaluated. The formaldehyde reacts with MBTH and forms the azine in about 12 min. The oxidation of MBTH by Fe (III and the formation of dye requires 3 min. The absorbance of the reagent drop is proportional to the sampling time and to the analyte concentration. The absorbance signal increases with increased sample gas flow until a maximum is reached then decreases until it forms a plateau. The proposed method was evaluated using both outdoor and indoor samples, and it was shown to viable provide an accurate measure of total aldehyde.

    Apostichopus japonicus Selenka is an ideal tonic food that is used traditionally in many Asian countries,and it contains many bioactive substances,such as antioxidant,antimicrobial,and anticancer materials.To convert waste liquid generated during production into a useful resource,extract from waste liquid was isolated by column chromatography and studied by the pyrogallol autoxidation and 1,10-phenanthroline-Fe2+ oxidation methods.Results show that the extract scavenged about 91% of the superoxide anion radical at a concentration of 1.4 mg/mL and 24% of the hydroxyl radical at 3.3 mg/mL.Four compounds were isolated and identified from the extract:2,4-dihydroxy-5-methyl-1,3-azine; 2,4-dihydroxy-1,3-diazine; 3-O-[β-D-quinovopranosyl-(1→2)-4-O-sodium sulfate-β-D-xylopranosyl]-holosta-9(11)-ene-3β,12t,17α-triol; and 24-ethyl-5t-cholesta-7-ene-3β-O-β-D-xylopyranoside.All of these compounds are known in A.japonicus,and were found in the waste liquid for the first time.

  4. Selective induction of oxidative stress in cancer cells via synergistic combinations of agents targeting redox homeostasis. (United States)

    Akladios, Fady N; Andrew, Scott D; Parkinson, Christopher J


    Cancer cell resistance to chemotherapy is still a heavy burden that impairs the response of many cancer patients to conventional chemotherapy. Using drug combinations is one therapeutic approach to overcome the developing resistance to any one drug. Oxidative stress is now a generally regarded hallmark of cancer that can be one approach to selectively target cancer cells while sparing normal cells. With the aim of increasing oxidative stress in cancer cells to a lethal set point, we have generated and combined several series of redox active compounds that act at different points of the cellular oxidative cascade. The premise of such combinations is to deplete of endogenous antioxidant defence proteins (e.g., Glutathione) while concomitantly increasing the generation of ROS via metal redox recycling and Fenton chemistry which eventually leads to the disruption of cellular redox homeostasis and induction of cell death. Through this approach, we have identified highly synergistic combinations of two distinctive classes of compounds (Azines and Copper(II) complexes of 2-pyridyl ketone thiosemicarbazones) which are capable of eliminating cancer cells without concomitant increase in toxicity toward normal cells. In one of our most potent combinations, a combination index (CI) value of 0.056 was observed, representing a 17 fold enhancement in activity beyond additive effects. Such new combination regimen of redox active compounds can be one step closer to potentially safer low dose chemotherapy. PMID:26022081

  5. Molecular structure, spectroscopic (FT-IR, FT-Raman, NMR, UV) studies and first-order molecular hyperpolarizabilities of 1,2-bis(3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzylidene)hydrazine by density functional method (United States)

    Subramanian, N.; Sundaraganesan, N.; Jayabharathi, J.


    Quantum chemical calculations of energies, geometrical structure and vibrational wavenumbers of 1,2-bis(3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzylidene)hydrazine [vanillin azine (VA)] were carried out by using density functional (DFT/B3LYP) method with 6-31G(d) as basis set. The optimized geometrical parameters obtained by DFT calculations are in good agreement with single crystal XRD data. The vibrational spectral data obtained from solid phase FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra are assigned based on the results of the theoretical calculations. The observed spectra are found to be in good agreement with calculated values. The electric dipole moment ( μ) and the first hyperpolarizability ( β) values of the investigated molecule have been computed using ab initio quantum mechanical calculations. The calculation results also show that the VA molecule might have microscopic nonlinear optical (NLO) behavior with non-zero values. A detailed interpretation of the infrared and Raman spectra of VA was also reported. The energy and oscillator strength calculated by time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) results complements with the experimental findings. The calculated HOMO and LUMO energies show that charge transfer occurs within the molecule. The theoretical NMR chemical shifts complement with experimentally measured ones.

  6. Synthesis and Application of an Aldazine-Based Fluorescence Chemosensor for the Sequential Detection of Cu2+ and Biological Thiols in Aqueous Solution and Living Cells

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hongmin Jia


    Full Text Available A fluorescence chemosensor, 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde azine (HNA was designed and synthesized for sequential detection of Cu2+ and biothiols. It was found that HNA can specifically bind to Cu2+ with 1:1 stoichiometry, accompanied with a dramatic fluorescence quenching and a remarkable bathochromic-shift of the absorbance peak in HEPES buffer. The generated HNA-Cu2+ ensemble displayed a “turn-on” fluorescent response specific for biothiols (Hcy, Cys and GSH based on the displacement approach, giving a remarkable recovery of fluorescence and UV-Vis spectra. The detection limits of HNA-Cu2+ to Hcy, Cys and GSH were estimated to be 1.5 μM, 1.0 μM and 0.8 μM, respectively, suggesting that HNA-Cu2+ is sensitive enough for the determination of thiols in biological systems. The biocompatibility of HNA towards A549 human lung carcinoma cell, was evaluated by an MTT assay. The capability of HNA-Cu2+ to detect biothiols in live A549 cells was then demonstrated by a microscopy fluorescence imaging assay.

  7. Chromophores from photolyzed ammonia reacting with acetylene: Application to Jupiter's Great Red Spot (United States)

    Carlson, R. W.; Baines, K. H.; Anderson, M. S.; Filacchione, G.; Simon, A. A.


    The high altitude of Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS) may enhance the upward flux of gaseous ammonia (NH3) into the high troposphere, where NH3 molecules can be photodissociated and initiate a chain of chemical reactions with downwelling acetylene molecules (C2H2). These reactions, experimentally studied earlier by (Ferris and Ishikawa [1987] Nature 326, 777-778) and (Ferris and Ishikawa [1988] J. Amer. Chem. Soc. 110, 4306-4312), produce chromophores that absorb in the visible and ultraviolet regions. In this work we photolyzed mixtures of NH3 and C2H2 using ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength of 214 nm and measured the spectral transmission of the deposited films in the visible region (400-740 nm). From these transmission data we estimated the imaginary indices of refraction. Assuming that ammonia grains at the top of the GRS clouds are coated with this material, we performed layered sphere and radiative transfer calculations to predict GRS reflection spectra. Comparison of those results with observed and previously unreported Cassini visible spectra and with true-color images of the GRS show that the unknown GRS chromophore is spectrally consistent with the coupled NH3-C2H2 photochemical products produced in our laboratory experiments. Using high-resolution mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy we infer that the chromophore-containing residue is composed of aliphatic azine, azo, and diazo compounds.

  9. A theoretical study on the wavepacket dynamics in the excited states of aromatic biomolecules

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The relaxation of the low-lying excited states of 9H-adenine through conical intersections of the dissociative “1πσ”* excited state with the lowest “1ππ”* excited state and the electronic-structure calculations and wave packet dynamics simulation. Adiabatic and quasidiabatic potential-energy surfaces and coupling elements were calculated as a function of the NH stretch coordinate of the azine group and the out-of-plane angle of the hydrogen atom, employing multireference configuration-interaction (MRCI) as well as restricted-active-space self-consistent-field (RASSCF) methods. Characteristic properties of the “1πσ”*-“1ππ”* and “1πσ”*-S0 conical intersections such as the diabatic-to-adiabatic mixing angle, the geometric phase of the adiabatic electronic wave functions, the derivative coupling, as well as adiabatic and diabatic trasition-dipole-moment surfaces were investigated in detail. Time-dependent wave packet simulations reveal an ultrafast relaxations dynamics of the optically-allowed lowest “1ππ”* state driven by vibronic coupling between strongly coupled electronic states that add to our understanding of the origin of the intrinsic photostability of the building blocks of life.

  11. The Dysregulation of Polyamine Metabolism in Colorectal Cancer Is Associated with Overexpression of c-Myc and C/EBPβ rather than Enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis Infection

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anastasiya V. Snezhkina


    Full Text Available Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. It is well known that the chronic inflammation can promote the progression of colorectal cancer (CRC. Recently, a number of studies revealed a potential association between colorectal inflammation, cancer progression, and infection caused by enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis (ETBF. Bacterial enterotoxin activates spermine oxidase (SMO, which produces spermidine and H2O2 as byproducts of polyamine catabolism, which, in turn, enhances inflammation and tissue injury. Using qPCR analysis, we estimated the expression of SMOX gene and ETBF colonization in CRC patients. We found no statistically significant associations between them. Then we selected genes involved in polyamine metabolism, metabolic reprogramming, and inflammation regulation and estimated their expression in CRC. We observed overexpression of SMOX, ODC1, SRM, SMS, MTAP, c-Myc, C/EBPβ (CREBP, and other genes. We found that two mediators of metabolic reprogramming, inflammation, and cell proliferation c-Myc and C/EBPβ may serve as regulators of polyamine metabolism genes (SMOX, AZIN1, MTAP, SRM, ODC1, AMD1, and AGMAT as they are overexpressed in tumors, have binding site according to ENCODE ChIP-Seq data, and demonstrate strong coexpression with their targets. Thus, increased polyamine metabolism in CRC could be driven by c-Myc and C/EBPβ rather than ETBF infection.

    Apos tichopus japonicus Selenka is an ideal tonic food that is used traditionally in many Asian countries, and it contains many bioactive substances, such as antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anticancer materials. To convert waste liquid generated during production into a useful resource, extract from waste liquid was isolated by column chromatography and studied by the pyrogallol autoxidation and 1,10-phenanthroline-Fe2+ oxidation methods. Results show that the extract scavenged about 91% of the superoxide anion radical at a concentration of 1.4 mg/mL and 24% of the hydroxyl radical at 3.3 mg/mL. Four compounds were isolated and identified from the extract: 2,4-dihydroxy-5-methyl-1,3-azine; 2,4-dihydroxy-1,3-diazine; 3-O-[β-D-quinovopranosyl-(1→2)-4-O-sodium sulfate-β-D-xylopranosyl]-holosta-9(11)-ene-3β,12α,17α-triol; and 24-ethyl-5α-cholesta-7-ene-3β-O-β-D-xylopyranoside. All of these compounds are known in A. japonicus, and were found in the waste liquid for the first time.

    The electron spin resonance (E.S.R.) spectra of gamma irradiated polar organic glasses, at 77 K, shows a single line centered at g {approx} 2, attributed to solvated electrons. The radicals produced on scavenging this species by electron acceptors, such as aromatic hydrocarbons, nitro-compounds and azines have been studied by E.S.R. In most cases, the radicals from these solutes, the spectra of which are observed after elimination by warming of the radicals from the matrices, are produced by protonation of the anions formed by scavenging of electrons at 77 K. Thus, in the case of glassy solutions of nitro-compounds, the radicals R NO{sub 2}H are formed. They are characterized by a{sub N} = 15 G (nitrobenzene) or a{sub N} = 28 G (nitro-alkane). These radicals are also generated by U.V, photolysis at room temperature of solutions of nitro-compounds in alcohols and are shown to be the precursors of nitroxide radicals R - N - R (with N - O) observed simultaneously. Gamma irradiation of solutions of pyridine and of the three diazines, in alcohol glasses at 77 K, produces the radical formed by hydrogen addition to these compounds. The value of the coupling constant of the additional proton (7-10 G) indicates that it is bound to a nitrogen in the sp{sup 2} hydridation state. One has shown, taking pyridine as an example, that the addition to a carbon gives a much greater value of the coupling constant, of the order of 50-60 G.

    A laccase from the culture filtrate of white rot fungus Coriolopsis floccosa MTCC-1177 has been purified to homogeneity. The method involved concentration of the culture filtrate by ammonium sulphate precipitation and an anion exchange chromatography on diethylaminoethyl (DEAE) cellulose. Sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) as well as native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (native-PAGE) produced single protein bands indicating that the enzyme preparation was pure. Molecular mass of the enzyme determined from SDS-PAGE analysis was 64 kDa. Using 2,6-dimethoxyphenol (DMP), 2,2'-[Azino-bis-(3-ethylbonzthiazoline-6-sulphonic acid (ABTS) diammonium salt and 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxy benzaldehyde azine (syringaldazine) as the substrates, the m, cat and cat/m values of the laccase were found to be 112.5 M, 5.16 s-1, 4.60 × 104M-1 s-1, 58 M, 5.16 s-1, 8.90 × 104M-1 s-1 and 100 M, 5.16 s-1, 5.16 × 104M-1 s-1, respectively. The pH and temperature optima were 5.0°C and 40°C, respectively. Activation energy for thermal denaturation of the enzyme was 36.6 kJ/mol/K. The enzyme was most stable at pH4.0 when exposed for 1 h. The purified laccase has yellow colour and does not show absorption band around 610 nm found in blue laccases. The enzyme transforms toluene, 3-nitrotoluene and 4-chlorotoluene to benzaldehyde, 3-nitrobenzaldehyde and 4-chlorobenzaldehyde, respectively, in the absence of electron transfer mediators.

    Nitrogen dioxide is the most hazardous pollutant among the oxides of nitrogen and plays an important role in the formation of acid rain, photochemical smog and in generation of many secondary pollutants. In this work, a simple and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of nitrogen dioxide in air and nitrite in water, soil, some analytical grade chemicals and tooth paste has been developed. Nitrogen dioxide in air is fixed as nitrite ion in alkaline sodium arsenite or tri-ethanolamine absorber solution.. The method is based on the reaction of nitrite in aqueous medium with known excess of Neutral Red (C.I. 50040), an azine dye having a primary amino group with absorption maxima at 530 nm. In acid medium, it medium, it showed a decrease in colour intensity due to diazotization, followed by deamination. Addition of bromide ion enhances the rate of diazotization, and the reaction goes to completion almost instantaneously. Beer`s law is obeyed over the range 0 - 20 {mu}g nitrite and the molar absorptivity is 2. x 10{sup 4} L mol{sup -1} cm{sup -1}. The colour system is stable for 2 days. The dye can be extracted under alkaline condition in iso-amyl alcohol and the addition of methanolic sulphuric acid restores the dye colour. It showed molar absorptivity of 4.3 x 10{sup 4} L mol{sup -1} cm{sup -1}. Beer`s law is obeyed over the range 0 - 1.6 {mu}g of nitrite, having a detection limit of 0.15 {mu}g. (authors) 18 refs.

  17. Biological activity of ruthenium and osmium arene complexes with modified paullones in human cancer cells. (United States)

    Mühlgassner, Gerhard; Bartel, Caroline; Schmid, Wolfgang F; Jakupec, Michael A; Arion, Vladimir B; Keppler, Bernhard K


    In an attempt to combine the ability of indolobenzazepines (paullones) to inhibit cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks) and that of platinum-group metal ions to interact with proteins and DNA, ruthenium(II) and osmium(II) arene complexes with paullones were prepared, expecting synergies and an increase of solubility of paullones. Complexes with the general formula [M(II)Cl(η(6)-p-cymene)L]Cl, where M=Ru (1, 3) or Os (2, 4), and L=L(1) (1, 2) or L(2) (3, 4), L(1)=N-(9-bromo-7,12-dihydroindolo[3,2-d][1]-benzazepin-6(5H)-yliden-N'-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)azine and L(2)=N-(9-bromo-7,12-dihydroindolo[3,2-d][1]benzazepin-6-yl)-N'-[3-hydroxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)-2-methylpyridin-4-yl-methylene]azinium chloride (L(2)(*)HCl), were now investigated regarding cytotoxicity and accumulation in cancer cells, impact on the cell cycle, capacity of inhibiting DNA synthesis and inducing apoptosis as well as their ability to inhibit Cdk activity. The MTT (3-(4,5-dimethyl-2-thiazolyl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium bromide) assay yielded IC(50) values in the nanomolar to low micromolar range. In accordance with cytotoxicity data, the BrdU assay showed that 1 is the most and 4 the least effective of these compounds regarding inhibition of DNA synthesis. Effects on the cell cycle are minor, although concentration-dependent inhibition of Cdk2/cyclin E activity was observed in cell-free experiments. Induction of apoptosis is most pronounced for complex 1, accompanied by a low fraction of necrotic cells, as observed by annexin V-fluorescein isothiocyanate/propidium iodide staining and flow cytometric analysis.

  18. Study of the factors supporting the selective complexation of the trivalent lanthanide and actinide ions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order to obtain clear-cut information on the factors which favour the discrimination between trivalent actinides and lanthanides, we investigated the complexation of the tris(cyclopentadienyl) Ce(III) and U(III) compounds, (RCp)3M (R = tBu, SiMe3), with a series of monocyclic azines with distinct Lewis basicity and reduction potential. Coordination of pyrazine and 4,4' and 2,2'-bipyridines on the (RCp)3M complexes has also been studied. Of major interest is the reversible oxidation of the (RCp)3U species into the uranium(IV) [(RCp)3U]2(pyz) complexes by pyrazine. The presence of cooperativity in the binding of the cyclopentadienyl groups by U(III), due to late appearance of back-bonding, leads to a greater stabilization of the uranium(III) complexes. Complexation of the species Cp*2MI (M = Ce, U) by 2,2'-bipyridine, phenanthroline and ter-pyridine affords the adducts [Cp*2M(L)]I. For L = bipy and terpy, these compounds are reduced into Cp*2M(L). The magnetic data for [Cp*2M(terpy)]I and Cp*2M(terpy) are consistent with Ce(III) and U(III) species, with the formulation Cp*2MIII(terpy). An electron transfer reaction between these species was observed in NMR. Reactions of the [Cp*2M(terpy)]I and Cp*2M(terpy) complexes with H and H+ donor reagents lead to a clear differentiation of these trivalent ions. We studied the coordination of the stable N-heterocyclic carbene and isonitrile molecules on (RCp)3M and Cp*2MI; competition reactions and comparison of the crystal structures of the carbene compounds reveal the much better affinity of the NHC and tBuNC ligands for the 5f rather than for the 4f ion.

    Lithium ceramics would be applied as tritium breeder materials in the future fusion nuclear reactors. The present study shows a modified combustion synthesis to produce lithium ceramics using urea (CO(NH{sub 2}){sub 2}) - oxides (TiO{sub 2}, ZrO{sub 2}, Al{sub 2}O{sub 3})- hydroxide (LiOH) mixtures, that differ from the traditional combustion synthesis which utilizes, metal nitrates and fuels (urea/hydrazide, oxalyl dihydrazide, malonic acid dihydrazide, glycine, tetra formal tris azine, etc) mixtures in stoichiometric molar ratios to produce lithium ceramics In the present work, the modified combustion synthesis was performed to produce Li{sub 4}SiO{sub 4}, Li{sub 2}SiO{sub 3}, {beta}-Li{sub 2}TiO{sub 3}, m- Li{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, and {gamma}-LiAIO{sub 2}. It was necessary to add LiOH excess to balance Li{sub 2}O sublimation. The advantages and disadvantages of the modified combustion synthesis to prepare {beta}-Li{sub 2}TiO{sub 3} and m-Li{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} ceramics were also studied. During synthesis were used insoluble oxide compounds. Although thermodynamic properties have been studied extensively from first principles, only limited insight exists about the kinetic properties of decomposition of lithium ceramics. In several works, Li{sub 4}SiO{sub 4} and Li{sub 2}SiO{sub 3} had shown high tritium solubility at lower temperatures than other tritium breeding materials. Therefore, we examined the thermal stability of these lithium silicates. Finally, the effect of 12000 kGy of {gamma} rays irradiation was analyzed in the lithium ceramics produced. The XRD analyses of irradiated samples showed decomposition of Li{sub 2}SiO{sub 3} to Li{sub 2}Si{sub 2}O{sub 5} due to radiolysis processes. Li{sub 4}SiO{sub 4} was decomposed to Li{sub 2}SiO{sub 3}. {beta}Li{sub 2}TiO{sub 3} did not decompose under {gamma} irradiation but m-Li{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} decomposed to ZrO{sub 2}. Finally, {gamma}-LiAIO{sub 2} was stable to {gamma} irradiation. In general, consolidation effects

  1. Coordination Chemistry and Structural Dynamics of a Long and Flexible Piperazine-Derived Ligand. (United States)

    Hawes, Chris S; Hamilton, Sophie E; Hicks, Jamie; Knowles, Gregory P; Chaffee, Alan L; Turner, David R; Batten, Stuart R


    A long and highly flexible internally functionalized dipyridyl ligand α,α'-p-xylylenebis(1-(4-pyridylmethylene)-piper-4-azine), L, has been employed in the synthesis of a series of coordination polymer materials with Co(II), Cd(II), and Ag(I) ions. In poly-[Cd(L)(TPA)] 1 and poly-[Co(L)(IPA)], 2, (TPA = terephthalate, IPA = isophthalate) the ligand adopts a similar linear conformation to that seen in the structure of the unbound molecule and provides a long (2.6 nm) metal-metal bridging distance. Due to the mismatch of edge lengths with that provided by the carboxylate coligands, geometric distortions from the regular dia and (4,4) network geometries for 1 and 2, respectively, are observed. In poly-[Ag2(CF3SO3)2(L)], 3, the ligand coordinates through both pyridine groups and two of the four piperazine nitrogen donors, forming a high-connectivity 2-dimensional network. The compound poly-[Ag2(L)](BF4)2·2MeCN, 4, a porous 3-dimensional cds network, undergoes a fascinating and rapid single-crystal-to-single-crystal rearrangement on exchange of the acetonitrile guests for water in ambient air, forming a nonporous hydrated network poly-[Ag2(L)](BF4)2·2H2O, 5, in which the well-ordered guest water molecules mediate the rearrangement of the tetrafluoroborate anions and the framework itself through hydrogen bonding. The dynamics of the system are examined in greater detail through the preparation of a kinetic product, the dioxane-solvated species poly-[Ag2(L)](BF4)2·2C4H8O2, 6, which undergoes a slow conversion to 5 over the course of approximately 16 h, a transition which can be monitored in real time. The reverse transformation can also be observed on immersing the hydrate 5 in dioxane. The structural features and physical properties of each of the materials can be rationalized based on the flexible and multifunctional nature of the ligand molecule, as well as the coordination behavior of the chosen metal ions.

  3. Storage Stability Improvement of Copolymer Grafted Polypropylene-AcrylicAcid (PP-AA), by means of Various After Treatment Processes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Polypropylene yams that have been subjected to irradiation induced graftco-polymerization with acrylic acid, have gained its moisture regain and dyeability, that fulfilled the requirement as textile material for garment.However, the copolymer grafted PP-AA has suffered from degradation in thestorage, which was indicated in the previous study that the strengthretention has dropped tremendously by photo-oxidation or photo-degradation.After treatments of PP-AA yams with chemical compound that was able toprevent further photo-oxidation, will be expected to improve the stability ofPP-AA in storage. In this research activity, the polypropylene (PP) yams weresubjected to irradiation induced graft co-polymerization by means ofγ-Ray Co-60 as irradiation source with acrylic acid (AA) as monomer.Various after treatments were subjected to the grafted PP-AA yams such asalkalisation process; dyeing (anionic dyes, cationic dyes and nonionic dyes);as well as processing with optical brightening agent and UV stabilizer,separately. The PP-AA yams (before and after treatment) were subjected tostorage from 1 month up to 42 months, and then being tested for theirmoisture regain, strength retention and elongation at breaks. The samplesbeing stored for 12 months were subjected to radical analysis. It isconcluded from the experiment that after treatment of grafted PP-AA by meansof those various processes were able to improve the stability of copolymergrafted PP-AA in storage. The presence of peroxide radical in the ESR(electron spin resonance) spectrum on PP-AA yams before treatment and theones after treated with alkaline and being stored for 12 months haveindicated the presence of photo oxidation or photo degradation, while thepresence of poly enyl radical in the ESR spectrum of after treated PP-AA withdyes having azo and azine compound as chromophore, as well as with UVstabilizer with carbonyl as chromophore and being stored for 12 months haveproved that its presence have protected such

    Iron (Fe) is an essential microelement for plant growth. Although Fe is the most abundant nutrient in the mineral solid phase of soils, its presence in soil solution is negligible. Fe deficiency is a major nutritional disorder in crops, especially on calcareous soils. The solution for Fe deficiency by agronomic practices or by breeding and obtaining genetically modified plants is not efficient enough, therefore, the application of Fe fertilizers still remains the efficient strategy to overcome Fe deficiency. Inorganic Fe fertilizers ( e. g. , FeS04 · 7H2O) and Fe-complex fertilizers ( e. g. , lignosulfonates and humates) are frequently-used in domestic market. EDTA-Fe chelate is low stable, and EDTA can become diketopiper-azine, being the persistent organic pollutant in the environment. Synthetic Fe chelates ( e. g. , EDDHA/Fe3+ , EDDHMA/ Fe3 + , EDDHSA/Fe3 + ) either applied to the soil or delivered to the foliage, are common used in abroad. Also, some new slow-releasing Fe fertilizers and biodegradable Fe chelates ( e. g. , IDHA/Fe3 + , EDDS/Fe3 + ) have appeared in the market. This review covers the research progress on varieties, properties and effectiveness of Fe fertilizers in the recent years.%铁是植物正常生长必需的微量营养元素之一.铁虽然在土壤中的丰度很高,但植物可以吸收利用的有效铁很少,导致植物极易缺铁,尤其是在干旱、半干旱的石灰性土壤上,缺铁现象较为严重.利用农艺和生物技术手段解决植物缺铁的效果尚不十分明显,施用铁肥仍是纠正植物缺铁常用的有效方法.国内常用铁肥品种主要有硫酸亚铁为主的无机铁肥和一些有机物与铁复合形成的铁肥(木质素磺酸铁、腐殖酸铁).乙二胺四乙酸(EDTA)铁肥稳定性相对较低,且EDTA会转化成二酮哌嗪,成为持久性有机污染物.国外推广使用乙二胺二邻羟苯基乙酸(EDDHA)、乙二胺二(2-羟基-4-甲酰-苯基)乙酸(EDDHMA)、乙二胺二(2-羟基-4

    Polyamines are involved in several biological processes including reproduction, embryo development and cancer development, as well as play important roles in cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. The homeostasis of polyamines is regulated strictly by transmembrane transporter and polyamine metabolically path-ways. Solute carrier ( SLC ) gene family including SLC3A2, SLC7A1, SLC12A8, SLC22A16, SLC22A1, SLC22A2 and SLC22A3 genes and their protein could involve in the process of polyamine transmembrane trans-port; furthermore, the key regulatory genes of polyamine metabolism including ornithine decarboxylase ( ODC ) , ornithine decarboxylase antizyme ( OAZ ) and ornithine decarboxylase antizyme inhibitorgenes ( AZIN) genes could also regulate transmembrane transport of polyamines;moreover, the internal environmen-tal factors including metal cation, transmembrane potential and pH also involved in the process of polyamine transport. Therefore, in this paper, the roles of the polyamine transporters, the key regulatory genes of poly-amine metabolism and their proteins, and internal environmental factors mediating polyamine transport were re-viewed.%多胺具有调控细胞增殖、分化和凋亡的功能,可参与动物繁殖、胚胎发育以及癌症发生发展等多种生物学过程。在动物机体中,多胺稳态是通过多胺跨膜物质转运和多胺代谢途径共同维持的。溶质转运蛋白( SLC )基因家族中的 SLC3A2、SLC7A1、SLC12A8、SLC22A16、SLC22A1、SLC22A2、SLC22A3基因及其编码的蛋白质可参与多胺的跨膜物质转运;多胺代谢关键调控基因鸟氨酸脱羧酶( ODC )、鸟氨酸脱羧酶抗酶( OAZ )和鸟氨酸脱羧酶抗酶抑制剂( AZIN)对多胺跨膜物质转运也具有重要的调控功能;此外,金属阳离子、细胞膜跨膜电位和pH等内环境因素也可参与多胺转运的调节。因此,本文就多胺转运蛋白、多胺代谢

  7. Dancing with Energetic Nitrogen Atoms: Versatile N-Functionalization Strategies for N-Heterocyclic Frameworks in High Energy Density Materials. (United States)

    Yin, Ping; Zhang, Qinghua; Shreeve, Jean'ne M


    has become an increasingly efficient tool for exploring new HEDMs with both high energy and low sensitivity. As a highly dense building block, introduction of oxygen not only improves density significantly but also gives rise to a better oxygen balance. Furthermore, the N-O functionalized strategy is highly suitable for a broad variety of N-heterocycles including five-membered azoles and six-membered azines. Newly explored N-halogen and N-B functionalization strategies have endowed the resulting HEDMs with some new energetic characteristics. Typical examples include the N-halogenated fused triazole and FOX-7 as potential hypergolic oxidizers with very short ignition delay times. In addition, some exploratory studies of N-B functionalized heterocycles have expanded energetic applications as hypergolic ionic liquids, green pyrotechnic colorants, and high-oxygen carriers. Overall, flexible N-functionalization methodologies involving different N-X bond formation have not only provided an efficient approach to diverse energetic ingredients but also expanded the application scope of energetic materials. Discussion and perspectives of N-functionalized protocols are given to summarize possible structure-property correlations, thus providing efficient guidelines for future design of new HEDMs. PMID:26717271

    In this work, the hydrolysis processes of the anticancer drugs trans-[PtCl2 (piperi-dine) ( Am)], Am = 2.-pico]ine( 1), 3-picoline(2) , 4-picoiine(3), trans-[PtCl; (piperidine) ( piper-azine)] (4), trans-[PtCl2 ( piperazme )2 ] (5 ) and trans-[ PtCl2 (iminoether )2 ] (6 ) have been studied using hybrid density functional theory (B3LYP) and iso-electnc focusing polarized con-tinuum model CIEF-PCM) solvation models. The hydrolysis reactions leading to the activated drug form a key step for the reaction with the target DNA. The stationary points on the poten-tial energy surfaces for the first and second hydrolysis steps, proceeding via a general SN2 pathway, were fully optimized and characterized. It is found that the processes of the reactions follow the established theory for ligand substitution in square planar complexes,that is, substi-tution reactions usually occur via Pt-Iigand exchange reactions with a trigonal-bipyramidsl transition stale structure; the geometries of the transition states (TS) agree with the previous related work and all of the reactions are endothermic; the barrier height of the second hydroly-sis is always higher than that of the first step for all the systems. In comparison with previous work on cisplatin, a faster rate of hydrolysis is determined for the reaction. We make a com-parison with previous work on the hydrolysis processes of analogous trans platinum-based anti- cancer drugs. The results provide detailed energy profiles for the mechanism of hydrolysis of 1, 2, 3. 4, 5 and 6, which may assist in understanding the reaction mechanism of the drug with the DNA target and in the design of novel Pt-based anticancer drugs with trans geometries.%用DFT-B3LYP方法和IEF-PCM溶剂化模型研究了反铂抗癌药物trans-[PtCl2(piperidine)(Am)](Am=2-picoline(1).3-picoline(2),4 picoline(3)),trans-[PtCl2(piperidine)(piperazine)](4),trans-[PtCl2(piperazine)2](5)and trans-[PtCl2(iminoether)2](6)的水解过程.水解反应是药物与DNA靶

    非叠氮类气体发生剂具有的含氮量高、燃速快、安定性良好、无毒、绿色环保等优点,使其成为气体发生剂领域的研究热点,并在汽车安全气囊、航天器、消防灭火等方面有着广泛的应用前景.本文对比叠氮类气体发生剂的性能,详细介绍了唑类、嗪类、胍类和偶氮类非叠氮气体发生剂的性质;全面系统地综述了上述各类非叠氮气体发生剂国内外合成、表征与应用的研究进展;重点分析了各类典型非叠氮气体发生剂的配方及性能参数,并探讨配方内不同组分对发生剂不同性能的影响,为进一步研发新型非叠氮类气体发生剂配方提供参考.经研究发现,同传统的叠氮类气体发生剂相比,虽然非叠氮类气体发生剂在产气量、燃速等性能方面有较大的提高,但因其存在价格昂贵等问题,目前仍然没有完全取代叠氮类气体发生剂.因此,在现有研究基础上,还需积极研发更加环保、无毒、高效、廉价和实用的非叠氮类气体发生剂.%The non-azide gas generating composition is a hot research topic due to its many features, such as high nitrogen content, fast burning rate, good stability, non-toxicity, and green environmental protection. It is widely applied in airbag, spacecraft, fire fighting and other fields. In this paper, compared with the traditional azide gas generating composition, the properties of azole, azine, guanidine and azoic gas generating compositions are analyzed in detail: the progresses in the synthesis, the characterization and the application are reviewed: the formulas and characteristic parameters are discussed. It is found that the non-azide gas generating composition has not completely replaced the traditional azide gas generating composition, despite its superior properties in many aspects, because of factors like the high price, the excessive heat of combustion, and the high temperature. Therefore it is necessary to

    Full Text Available Introduction The Ahangaran Pb-Ag deposit is located in the Hamedan province, west Iran, 25 km southeast of the city of Malayer . . The deposit lies in the strongly folded Sanandaj-Sirjan tectonic zone, in which the ore bodies occur as thin lenses and layers. The host rocks of the deposit are Early Cretaceous carbonates and sandstones that are unconformably underlain by Jurassic rocks. Ore minerals include galena, pyrite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and supergene iron oxide minerals. Gangue minerals consist of barite, dolomite, chlorite, calcite and quartz. The mineralization occurs as open-space fillings, veins, veinlets, disseminations, and massive replacements. Alteration consists of silicification, sericitization, and dolomitization. In this study, we carried out studies of mineralogy, microthermometry of fluid inclusions and sulfur isotopes to determine the source of sulfur and the physico-chemical conditions of formation. Materials and methods Seventy samples of different host rocks, alteration, and mineralization were collected from surface outcrops and different tunnels. Twenty of the samples were prepared for mineralogical studies at Tarbiat Modarres University in Tehran and 25 for petrological studies at the University of Bu-Ali Sina. Fluid-inclusion studies were done on 5 samples of quartz and calcite at Pouya Zamin Azin Company in Tehran using a Linkam THM 600 model heating-freezing stage (with a range of -196 to 480ºC. The accuracy and precision of the homogenization measurements are about ±1°C. Salinity estimates were determined from the last melting temperatures of ice, utilizing the equations by Bodnar and Vityk (1994 and for CO2 fluids using equations by Chen (1972. Nine samples of sulfides and barite were crushed and separated by handpicking under binocular microscope and powdered with agate mortar and pestle. About one gram of each sample was sent to the Stable Isotope and ICP/MS Laboratory of Queen’s University, Canada for

The number of tetra-cycline and sulfonamide resistant bacteria in water was 4.00×101 to 2.13×104 CFU·mL-1 and 6.67×101 to 7.34×105 CFU·mL-1, respectively, 3 to 4 orders of magnitude lower than that in sediments. The abundance of five tetracycline resistant genes(tetA, tetB, tetE, tetW and tetZ), two sulfonamide(sul1and sul2)resistant genes and two integron genes(int1, int2)detected was relatively high in all samples. The genes, te-tA and sul1, were dominant resistant genes with relative abundance greater than 1.58 ×10-2 in Wangyanggou River. Principal component analysis indicated that the abundance of antibiotic-resistant genes might be affected by different pollution sources and water quality charac-teristics. The phylogenetic analysis of tet(B)showed that water quality change resulted in diverse resistant strains. The current results indi-cate that pollution of antibiotics, antibiotic-resistant genes in Wangyanggou River is more severe than in other rivers.
