In the present work we use accurate quantum chemistry to evaluate several known and novel nitroxides bearing acid-base groups as pH-switchable control agents for room temperature NMP. Based on G3(MP2,CC)(+)//M06-2X/6-31+G(d) calculations with UAKS-CPCM/M06-2X/6-31+G(d) solvation corrections, a number of novel nitroxides are predicted to be suitable for controlled polymerization of bulk styrene at room temperature when deprotonated (i.e. negatively charged), while remaining inert when neutral. These include an α-ethyl analogue of 3-carboxy-PROXYL and novel derivatives of 2,2,5-trimethyl-4-phenyl-3-azahexane-3-nitroxide (TIPNO) that have been modified to include acidic groups...

The combination of an in situ formed MnL3 complex (HL = Hacac or R(C═O)CH2CO2R) and a chiral phosphoric acid HX* allows for a fully catalytic, asymmetric synthesis of 4H-chromenes starting from 2-alkyl-substituted phenols. The aerobic oxidation toward a transient ortho-quinone methide was efficiently catalyzed by a manganese(III) species MnL3 while the ensuing Michael addition of β-dicarbonyl compounds proved to be catalyzed by a chiral manganese phosphate MnL2X*.

Catechin is found in several natural sources, as Eugenia dysenterica and Syzygium cumini extracts. Its antioxidant and UV-protective properties suggest a potential use in cosmetic and dermatological formulations. A simple analytical method capable of giving support to experiments performed along the development of topical formulations containing this natural substance (i.e., drug assay, skin permeation and stability studies), however, is still demanded. Thus, this work aimed to develop and validate a selective HPLC method for catechin determination during the development of topical formulations...

Various properties of soil affect the partition of organic contaminants within, and conversely, the properties of the organic contaminants also directly affect their partition behavior in soil. Therefore, understanding the effects of various properties of soil on the partition of organic contaminants favors subsequent assessment and provides soil remediation methods for policymakers. This study selected pentachlorophenol (PCP), a common hydrophobic ionizable organic compound in contaminated sites worldwide, as the target contaminant...

In this research, adsorption of Cu(II) and Cd(II) by biochars was investigated. To enhance the adsorption of these two metal ions, a simple modification of biochars by phosphoric acid (H3PO4) was carried out. The surface area was larger and the contents of oxygen-containing functional groups of modified biochars were more than pristine biochars. In comparison with pristine biochar, modified biochars sorbed Cu(II) and Cd(II) much more strongly. Surface area had significant effects on the sorption of Cu(II) and Cd(II) by modified biochars, it also resulted in the higher sorption for the pristine biochar at high pyrolysis temperature...

The effect of alloying with transition metals (Ni, Co, Fe) on the adsorption strength of phosphoric acid on Pt alloy surfaces was investigated using electrochemical analysis and first-principles calculations. Cyclic voltammograms of carbon-supported Pt3M/C (M = Ni, Co, and Fe) electrocatalysts in 0.1 M HClO4 with and without 0.01 M H3PO4 revealed that the phosphoric acid adsorption charge density near the onset potential on the nanoparticle surfaces was decreased by alloying with transition metals in the order Co, Fe, Ni...

Mangroves are ecosystems located in the transition zone between land and sea that serve as a potential source of biotechnological resources. Brazil's extensive coast contains one of the largest mangrove forests in the world (encompassing an area of 25,000km(2) along all the coast). Endophytic bacteria were isolated from the following three plant species: Rhizophora mangle, Laguncularia racemosa and Avicennia nitida. A large number of these isolates, 115 in total, were evaluated for their ability to fix nitrogen and solubilize phosphorous...

Anodic porous alumina is a known material based on an old industry, yet with emerging applications in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This is promising, but the nanostructured alumina should be fabricated from inexpensive raw material. We fabricated porous alumina from commercial aluminum food plate in 0.4 M aqueous phosphoric acid, aiming to design an effective manufacturing protocol for the material used as nanoporous filler in dental restorative composites, an application demonstrated previously by our group...

Choosing the optimal catalyst for a new transformation is challenging because the ideal molecular requirements of the catalyst for one reaction do not always simply translate to another. Large groups at the 3,3' positions of the binaphthol rings are important for efficient stereoinduction but if they are too large this can lead to unusual or poor results. By applying a quantitative steric assessment of the substituents at the 3,3' positions of the binaphthol ring, we have systematically studied the effect of modulating this group on enantioselectivity for a wide range of reactions involving imines, and verified this analysis using ONIOM calculations...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of mortality and disability worldwide. We validated the utility of plasma metabolomics analysis in the clinical diagnosis of acute TBI in a rat model of controlled cortical impact (CCI) using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Thirty Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into two groups of 15 rats each: the CCI group and sham group. Blood samples were obtained from the rats within the first 24 h after TBI injury. GC/MS measurements were performed to evaluate the profile of acute TBI-induced metabolic changes, resulting in the identification of 45 metabolites in plasma...

 Tocopheryl phosphoric acid (TPA, a hydrophilic vitamin E derivative) loaded liposome and glycerin containing phospholipid nanoparticles (GPLNP) were prepared using the film rehydration and extrusion method. Nanoparticle formulations were evaluated for size, zeta potential, and in vitro permeation across hairless mouse skin, and (31)P NMR spectral analysis was performed. The prepared formulations were stable for 2 weeks, and their mean nanoparticle size varied between 90 and 140 nm. Although glycerin did not affect the particle size of the empty (no TPA) system, TPA-loading resulted in the reduction of particle size and conferred a negative charge...
