This study demonstrates a new strategy for colorimetric detection of alcoholic strength (AS) in spirit samples based on dual-responsive lanthanide infinite coordination polymer (Ln-ICP) particles with ratiometric fluorescence. The ICP used in this study are composed of two components: one is the supramolecular Ln-ICP network formed by the coordination between the ligand 2,2'-thiodiacetic acid (TDA) and central metal ion Eu(3+); and the other is a fluorescent dye, i.e., coumarin 343 (C343), both as the cofactor ligand and as the sensitizer, doped into the Ln-ICP network through self-adaptive chemistry...

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with light-harvesting building blocks designed to mimic photosynthetic chromophore arrays in green plants provide an excellent platform to study exciton transport in networks with well-defined structures. A step-by-step exciton random hopping model made of the elementary steps of energy transfer between only the nearest neighbors is usually used to describe the transport dynamics. Although such a nearest neighbor approximation is valid in describing the energy transfer of triplet states via the Dexter mechanism, we found it inadequate in evaluating singlet exciton migration that occurs through the Förster mechanism, which involves one-step jumping over longer distance...

The impregnation of halogen atoms in a molecule is an emerging trend in pharmaceutical chemistry. The presence of halogens (Cl, Br, I and F) increases the lipophilic nature of molecule and improves the penetration of lipid membrane. The presence of electronegative halogen atoms increases the bio- activity of core moiety. In the present study, Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes are synthesised using Schiff bases (HL(I) and HL(II)), derived from 8-formyl-7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin/3-chloro-8-formyl-7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin with 2,4-difluoroaniline/o-toluidine respectively...

Nitroxyl (HNO) is a biological signaling agent that displays distinctive reactivity compared to nitric oxide (NO). As a consequence, these two reactive nitrogen species trigger different physiological responses. Selective detection of HNO over NO has been a challenge for chemists, and several fluorogenic molecular probes have been recently developed with that goal in mind. Common constructs take advantage of the HNO-induced reduction of Cu(II) to Cu(I). The sensing mechanism of such probes relies on the ability of the unpaired electron in a d orbital of the Cu(II) center to quench the fluorescence of a photoemissive ligand by either an electron or energy transfer mechanism...

Silver(I) complexes of coumarin-based ligands and one of their phenanthroline (phen) adducts have been prepared and characterized using microanalytical data, molar conductivity, IR, (1)H and (13)C NMR, UV-Vis, and atomic absorption (AAS) spectroscopies. The binding modes of the coumarin-based ligands and the most probable structure of their Ag(I) complexes were predicted by means of molecular modeling and calculations of their IR, NMR, and absorption spectra using density functional theory (DFT). The cytotoxicity of the compounds studied against human-derived hepatic carcinoma cells (Hep-G2) and a renal cancer cell line (A498) showed that the complexes were more cytotoxic than the clinically used chemotherapeutic, mitoxantrone...

A new complex between coumarin-based ligand (CL) and copper ion has been prepared and applied to be an ON-OFF-ON reversible fluorescence chemosensor for the detection of Cys with high sensitivity and specificity. In HEPES buffer, CL displayed high affinity towards Cu(2+) ion over other physiological and environmental metal ions, accompanied with a 98.4% of fluorescence quenching. In the presence of Cys, the detachment of Cu(2+) ion of CL-Cu(2+) ensemble led to the liberation of the fluorophore, CL, and thus fluorescence was recovered...

The Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes have been synthesized with Schiff base (HL), derived from 8-formyl-7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin with benzylamine. The Schiff base and its metal complexes were structurally characterized based on IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, UV-visible, ESR, magnetic, thermal, fluorescence, mass and ESI-MS studies. The complexes are completely soluble in DMF and DMSO. The molar conductance values indicate that, all synthesized metal complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. Elemental analysis reveals [ML2(H2O)2] stoichiometry, here MCo(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II), L=deprotonated ligand...

It is very essential to disentangle the complicated inter-relationship between pH and Cu in the signal transduction and homeostasis. To this end, reporters that can display distinct signals to pH and Cu are highly valuable. Unfortunately, there is still no report on the development of biosensors that can simultaneously respond to pH and Cu(2+), to the best of our knowledge. In this work, we developed a single fluorescent probe, AuNC@FITC@DEAC (AuNC, gold cluster; FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate; DEAC, 7-diethylaminocoumarin-3-carboxylic acid), for biosensing of pH, Cu(2+), and pH/Cu(2+) with different ratiometric fluorescent signals...

Two- and three-component polymethacrylates, featuring a 2-(1-substituted-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)pyridine-based metal complex as photosensitizer, a viologen-type electron mediator, and a triethylene glycol methyl ether as solubilizing part are synthesized by statistical reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) radical polymerization allowing the construction of well-defined copolymers. Thereby, heteroleptic ruthenium(II) and iridium(III) complexes serve as charged photosensitizers. In hydrogen evolution experiments, as proof-of-concept, triethylamine is utilized as a sacrificial donor and colloidal platinum as hydrogen evolving catalyst...

This study demonstrates a novel ratiometric fluorescent method for real-time alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity assay with stimulus responsive infinite coordination polymer (ICP) nanoparticles as the probe. The ICP nanoparticles used in this study are composed of two components; one is the supramolecular ICP network formed with guanine monophosphate (GMP) as the ligand and Tb(3+) as the central metal ion, and the other is a fluorescent dye, i.e., 7-amino-4-methyl coumarin (coumarin) encapsulated into the ICP network...

Crystal structure data of cation-dependent catechol O-methyltransferases (COMTs) from mammals and related caffeoyl coenzyme A OMTs (CCoAOMTs) from plants have suggested operative molecular mechanisms. These include bivalent cations that facilitate deprotonation of vicinal aromatic dihydroxy systems and illustrate a conserved arrangement of hydroxyl and carboxyl ligands consistent with the requirements of a metal-activated catalytic mechanism. The general concept of metal-dependent deprotonation via a complexed aspartate is only one part of a more pronounced proton relay, as shown by semiempirical and DFT quantum mechanical calculations and experimental validations...

BACKGROUND: Methionyl-7-amino-4-methylcoumarin (MetAMC) serves as a substrate for the Escherichia coli methionine aminopeptidase (MetAP) catalyzed reaction, and is routinely used for screening compounds to identify potential antibiotic agents. In pursuit of screening the enzyme's inhibitors, we observed that 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD), utilized to solubilize hydrophobic inhibitors, inhibited the catalytic activity of the enzyme, and such inhibition was not solely due to sequestration of the substrate by HP-β-CD...

The mechanism of the formation of coumarins via the Pd-catalyzed intramolecular hydroarylation of the C-C triple bond is elucidated computationally, in corroboration with experimental data. It is shown that the reaction follows the concerted metalation-deprotonation (CMD) mechanism. The typically suspected mechanisms of ambiphilic metal ligand activation (AMLA), electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS), and oxidative addition (OA) are suggested to be non-competitive, based on predicted conformations and energetics...

The metal complexes of Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) have been synthesized from 6-formyl-7,8-dihydroxy-4-methylcoumarin with o-toluidine/3-aminobenzotrifluoride. The synthesized Schiff bases and their metal complexes were structurally characterized based on IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, UV-visible, ESR, magnetic, thermal, fluorescence, mass and ESI-MS studies. The molar conductance values indicate that complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. Elemental analysis reveals ML2·2H2O [M = Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II)] stoichiometry, where 'L' stands for a singly deprotonated ligand...

The synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of novel manganese(III) phthalocyanines bearing 7-oxy-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)-8-methylcoumarin or/and chloro groups have been achieved. The effect of alpha and beta substitution on the ligand- and metal-based reduction processes of the manganese phthalocyanine complexes and their interaction with dioxygen were investigated. The more effective interaction of the central metal of the beta coumarin substituted complex with dioxygen than that of its alpha substituted analogue was attributed to the hindrance of the interaction by the nonplanarity in the case of alpha substitution...
