Ferrocenylmethylnucleobases Synthesis, DFT Calculations, Electrochemical and Spectroscopic Characterization

Three ferrocenylmethylnucleobases (FcMeNb) were synthesized and characterized by cyclic voltammetry, electronic absorption, FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy. The energy of frontier molecular orbitals was determined using DFT/B3LYP method combined with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set in acetonitrile. The lower standard rate constant values of the FcMeNb compounds as compared to ferrocene indicated slower electron transfer kinetics.

Biosynthesis Products of Pseudomonas sp. PS-17 Strain Metabolites. 1. Obtaining and Thermal Characteristics

Biogenic surfactants (rhamnolipid biocomplex, dirhamnolipid and exopolysaccharide) and polyhydroxyalkanoate biopolymer which are the new biosynthesis products of Pseudomonas sp. PS-17 strain have been obtained. The thermal transformation of these products has been studied in the air in the temperature range of 293–1273 K. Thermolysis and IR spectroscopy revealed a formation of rhamnolipid biocomplex between rhamnolipids and exopolysaccharide upon acidification of the culture fluid supernatant to pH = 3. Cellular polymer – polyhydroxyalkanoate – was identified by UV-Vis spectroscopy.

Structural Properties of Polythiophene Doped with FeCl3

Polythiophene is chemically synthesized and doped with FeCl3 for 2.5, 5 and 10 h. For structural investigation all samples have been characterized using different techniques. The results of elemental analysis show that with the increase of doping duration the Fe content increases while the S content decreases. FTIR spectrum reveals the complex formation between FeCl3 and polythiophene. UV-Visible results have been used to calculate band gap energy.
