Trithiocarbonate-functionalized PNiPAAm-based nanocomposites for antimicrobial properties

Tan, Milène ; Horvàth, Lenke ; Brunetto, Priscilla S. ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: Polymers, 2018, vol. 10, no. 6, p. 665

In this study, four trithiocarbonate-functionalized PNiPAAms with different molecular weights were synthesized and used as a matrix to form composites with silver nanoparticles. Nanocomposites with several polymer-to-silver ratios P:Ag+ were prepared in order to evaluate the influence of silver loading. UV studies showed a thermoresponsive behavior of the nanocomposites with a...

Early-stage sustainability evaluation of nanoscale cathode materials for lithium ion batteries

Hischier, Roland ; Kwon, Nam Hee ; Brog, Jean?Pierre ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: ChemSusChem, 2018, vol. 11, no. 13, p. 2068–2076

Results of an early-stage sustainability evaluation of two development strategies for new nanoscale cathode materials for Li-ion batteries are reported: (i) a new production pathway for an existing material (LiCoO2) and (ii) a new nanomaterial (LiMnPO4). Nano-LiCoO2 was synthesized by a single-source precursor route at a low temperature with a short reaction time, which results in a smaller...

A concept for stimulated proton transfer in 1-(phenyldiazenyl)naphthalen-2-ols

Hristova, S. ; Deneva, Vera V. ; Pittelkow, M. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Kamounah, Fadhil S. . ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Hansen, P. E. ; Antonov, Liudmil M.

In: Dyes and Pigments, 2018, vol. 156, p. 91–99

A series of aryl azo derivatives of naphthols (1–3) were studied by means of UV–Vis and NMR spectroscopy in different solvents as well as by quantum chemical calculations and X-ray analysis. Previous studies have shown that Sudan I (1) exists as a tautomeric mixture. The effect of the solvents is minimized by the existing intramolecular hydrogen bond. Therefore, the influence on the...

Ag Nanoencapsulation for Antimicrobial Applications

Abram, Sarah-Luise ; Gagnon, Jacinthe ; Priebe, Magdalena ; Hérault, Nelly ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry, 2018, vol. 72, no. 4, p. 249–252

Biomaterial-related infections remain a significant challenge in medicine. Antimicrobial materials on the basis of Ag nanoparticles represent a promising solution for this issue. Therefore several Ag-containing nanocontainers and nanorattles have been synthesized and characterized that exhibit remarkable control over the release of Ag+ as antimicrobial active species. Their biological...

Versatile synthesis of chiral 6-oxoverdazyl radical ligands – new building blocks for multifunctional molecule-based magnets

Solea, Atena B. ; Wohlhauser, Tobie ; Abbasi, Parisa ; Mongbanziama, Yvan ; Crochet, Aurelien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Novitchi, Ghenadie ; Train, Cyrille ; Pilkington, Melanie ; Mamula, Olimpia

In: Dalton Transactions, 2018, vol. 47, no. 14, p. 4785–4789

A versatile synthetic methodology to access the first family of chiral verdazyl N,N′- chelate ligands is described and exemplified by N,N′-dimethyl-, N,N′-di-isopropyl- and N,N′-diphenyl oxoverdazyls bearing two isomers of the pinene-pyridine functional group. Their physical properties were probed by X-band EPR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and DFT calculations. Preliminary...

Amide neighbouring-group effects in peptides: phenylalanine as relay amino acid in long-distance electron transfer

Nathanael, Joses G. ; Gamon, Luke F. ; Cordes, Meike ; Rablen, Paul R. ; Bally, Thomas ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Giese, Bernd ; Wille, Uta

In: ChemBioChem, 2018, vol. 19, no. 9, p. 922–926

In nature, proteins serve as media for long‐distance electron transfer (ET) to carry out redox reactions in distant compartments. This ET occurs either by a single‐step superexchange or through a multi‐step charge hopping process, which uses side chains of amino acids as stepping stones. In this study we demonstrate that Phe can act as a relay amino acid for long‐distance electron...

Puckering behavior in six new phosphoric triamides containing aliphatic six- and seven-membered ring groups and a database survey of analogous ring-containing structures

Alviri, Banafsheh Vahdani ; Pourayoubi, Mehrdad ; Saneei, Anahid ; Keikha, Mojtaba ; Lee, Arie van der ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Ajees, A. Abdul ; Nečas, Marek ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Damodaran, Krishnan ; Jenny, Titus A.

In: Tetrahedron, 2018, vol. 74, no. 1, p. 28–41

The influence of a N heteroatom on the ring conformations of six- and seven- membered aliphatic rings in six new C(O)NHP(O)-based phosphoric triamide structures (analysed by X-ray crystallography) is investigated. Additionally the influence of steric and crystal packing effects is also studied by the analysis of Hirshfeld surfaces. The results are compared to analogous structures with three-...

Cis- and trans-9,10-di(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-anthracene based coordination polymers of ZnII and CdII: synthesis, crystal structures and luminescence properties

Vasylevskyi, Serhii I. ; Regeta, Khrystyna ; Ruggi, Albert ; Petoud, Stéphane ; Piguet, Claude ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: Dalton Transactions, 2018, vol. 47, no. 2, p. 596–607

New functional coordination polymers based on the semi-flexible 9,10-di(1H-imidazol- 1-yl)-anthracene ligand (L) with ZnII and CdII, namely {[Zn(μ2-L)2] (ClO4)2·m(MeOH)·n(DCM)}n (1), {[Zn(μ2-L)2](BF4)2·m(MeOH)·n(DCM)}n (2), {[Zn(μ2-L)2(p-Tos)2]·m(DCM)·n(MeOH)}n (3), {[Cd(μ2-L)2(p-Tos)2]·m(DCM)}n (4) {[Cd(μ2-L)2(p-Tos)2]·m(MeOH)·n(Dioxane)}n (5) and {[Zn(μ2-...
