Relação entre transferência de carga e as interações intermoleculares em complexos de hidrogênio heterocíclicos/ Relationship between charge transfer and intermolecular interactions in heterocyclic hydrogen-bonded complexes
Resumo em inglês Hydrogen-bonded complexes formed by the interaction of the heterocyclic molecules C2H4O and C2H5N with HF, HCN, HNC and C2H2 have been studied using density functional theory. The hydrogen bond strength has been analyzed through electron density charge transfer from the proton acceptor to the proton donor. The density charge transfer has been estimated using different methods such as Mulliken population analysis, CHELPG, GAPT and AIM. It has been shown that AIM-estimated (mais) charge transfer correlates very well with the hydrogen bond energy and the infrared bathochromic effect of the proton donor stretching frequencies.
Resumo em inglês The broad variety of hydrogenation methods of polydienes is presented. Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis are reviewed emphasizing also hydrogen transfer from donor compounds.
Resumo em inglês This work reviews recent studies of underpotential deposition (UPD) of several metals on Pt and Au substrates performed in the Grupo de Materiais Eletroquímicos e Métodos Eletroanalíticos (IQSC -- USP, São Carlos). The UPD Cu, Cd and Pb on Pt were analysed in terms of their influence in the oxygen evolution reaction. Partial blockage of surface active sites, promoted by Pb ad-atoms, resulted in a change from water to hydrogen peroxide as the final product. The Ag UPD (mais) on Pt and Au substrates was also discussed in this work. A detailed model of charge calculation for Ag monolayer was developed and confirmed by the rotating ring-disk data. The partial charge transfer in UPD studies was analysed in the Cd/Pt and Cd/Au systems and a value of 0.5 was found for the adsorption electrovalence of Cd ad-ions. The Sn/Pt UPD systems were studied from the point of view of the valences of metallic ions in solution. The deposition from Sn(IV) generates a full monolayer with a maximum occupation of approximately 40% of the surface active sites (340 µC cm-2) plus 105 µC cm-2 of Hads (half monolayer). Changing the metallic ion for Sn(II), it was possible to deposit a full monolayer (210 µC cm-2) without any detectable Hads. Finally, the effect of anions was discussed in the Zn/Pt and Zn/Au systems. Here, the hydrogen evolution reaction (her) and the hydrogen adsorption/desorption were used in order to investigate the maximum coverage of the surface with Zn ad-atoms. The full monolayer, characterised by the complete absence of Hads, was achieved only in 0.5 M HF solutions.
Estudo da reatividade do estado excitado triplete de 1,4-diaza-9-fluorenonas frente a doadores de hidrogênio e de elétron/ The reactivity of the triplet excited state of 1,4-diaza-9-fluorenones towards hydrogen and electron donors
Resumo em inglês The effect of the introduction of nitrogen atoms upon the triplet excited state reactivity of 1,4-diaza-9-fluorenone (1) and 1,4-diaza-9-benz[b]fluorenone (2), in acetonitrile, was investigated employing the nanosecond laser flash photolysis technique. The intersystem crossing quantum yield (Φces) for 1 and 2 was determined using 9-fluorenone as a secondary standard (Φces= 0.48, in acetonitrile) and for both diazafluorenones a value of Φces= 0.28 was found. (mais) Quenching rate constants ranged from 8.17x10(4) L mol-1 s-1 (2-propanol) to 1.02x10(10) L mol-1 s-1 (DABCO) for 1,4-diaza-9-fluorenone and from 6.95x10(5) L mol-1 s-1 (2-propanol) to 5.94x10(9) L mol-1 s-1 (DABCO) for 1,4-diaza-9-benz[b]fluorenone, depending if the quenching process involves energy, hydrogen or electron transfer. A comparison between quenching rate constants for both diazaflurenones and the parent compound, i.e. 9-fluorenone, a ketone with lowest triple state of ππ* configuration, lead to the conclusion that the reactive triplet excited state for 1,4-diaza-9-fluorenone and 1,4-diaza-9-benz[b]fluorenone has ππ* configuration.
Resumo em inglês This paper presents some results that may be used as previous considerations to a hydrogen peroxide electrogeneration process design. A kinetic study of oxygen dissolution in aqueous solution is carried out and rate constants for oxygen dissolution are calculated. Voltammetric experiments on vitreous carbon cathode shown that the low saturation concentration drives the oxygen reduction process to a mass transfer controlled process which exhibits low values of limiting cur (mais) rents. Results have shown that the hydrogen peroxide formation and its decomposition to water are separated by 400 mV on the vitreous carbon surface. Diffusion coefficients for oxygen and hydrogen peroxide are calculated using data taken from Levich and Tafel plots. In a series of bulk electrolysis experiments hydrogen peroxide was electrogenerated at several potential values, and concentration profiles as a function of the electrical charged passed were obtained. Data shown that, since limiting current plateaus are poorly defined onto reticulated vitreous carbon, cathodic efficiency may be a good criterion for choosing the potential value in which hydrogen peroxide electrogeneration should be carried out.
Resumo em português O setor automotivo é um dos mais competitivos e um grande consumidor de materiais ferrosos, que exigem uma eficiente proteção contra a corrosão. Esta proteção é alcançada aplicando revestimentos adequados. Para se aplicar revestimentos se requer uma cuidadosa preparação da superfície que pode ser feita por ataque químico. Neste trabalho, determinou-se a velocidade de reação do aço extra-doce, SAE-AISI 1005, laminado a frio (CFF) utilizando várias soluçõe (mais) s ácidas, de baixo custo, baixa agressividade ao meio ambiente e que geram pouco hidrogênio. O estudo cinético foi realizado medindo-se a perda de massa (deltam/mg cm-2) de chapas de aço CFF em função do tempo (s) de reação nas diferentes soluções, com e sem agitação, a 30ºC. Os resultados foram interpretados considerando-se os efeitos de transporte de massa, o efeito oxidante dos íons Me3+ e inibidor dos íons Fe2+. Dentre as várias soluções estudadas a que apresentou maior velocidade de reação foi a solução de H2SO4 2 M + MeCl3 1 M, v = 15,44 x 10-6 g cm-2s-1 para tempos até 1800 s. Resumo em inglês The automotive sector is one of the biggest consumers of ferrous materials, which require an efficient protection against corrosion. This protection can be reached applying adequate coatings. A careful surface preparation is required to apply any kind of coatings on surfaces. The surface preparation can be done by a chemical attack. In this work, reaction rates of cold-rolled steel with different acid solutions were determined. The solutions used have low cost, are enviro (mais) nmental friendly and some of them generate low quantity of hydrogen. The kinetic study was performed measuring the loss of mass (deltam/mg cm-2) of cold-rolled steel samples with time (s) reaction in the different solutions, with and without solution stirring, at 30 ºC. The results were interpreted considering the mass transfer effect, the Me3+ oxidizing and Fe2+ inhibitor effects on the steel dissolution. Among the different solutions studied, the 2 M H2SO4 + 1 M MeCl3 solution was the one that showed the highest rate, v = 15.44 x 10-6 g cm-2 s-1 for times up to 1800 s.
Resumo em inglês Certain biopolymers are capable of forming physically cross-linked gels in aqueous medium, stabilized by forces such as Coulombic, charge transfer, hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole, van der Waals, and hydrophobic interactions. The mathematical description of these physical networks are difficult, but should contribute to a better understanding of the gelling process. The Clark and Ross-Murphy model was applied to experimental data for agarose-guar gum mixed systems, in whi (mais) ch only agarose is the gelling polysaccharide. A computational routine based on the statistical maximum likehood principle was employed to estimate the f, K and a characteristic parameters. Statistical t-test and F-test were used to analyse the set of parameters.
