Theoretical models based on the structure excerpted from the literature for Ni-C state of [NiFe] hydrogenase from Desulfovulgaris (Miyaszaki F) were considered. These models mainly possess either CO,CN and SO or CO,CO and SO ligands on the iron site. All the cysteinyl moieties of the models are in the amide form. In addition to the neutral forms, -/+1 charged forms of these models have been subjected to semiempirical quantum chemical analysis (PM3 (UHF)). After strict geometry optimization, certain quantum chemical and thermodynamic properties were calculated. The calculations have revealed that all the models are thermodynamically stable and exothermic. However, the heat of formation data indicate that negatively charged systems are more exothermic than the neutral ones and they are more exothermic than the positively charged ones. Variation of some bond lengths and bond angles as the charge develops were investigated. Also the effect of charge on the fronlier molecular orbitals, their energies and the interfrontier molecular orbital energy gaps were studied.


PM3 study on a model for hydrogenases of dinuclear iron-only
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2003-11-17)
Quantum chemical studies at the level of PM3 (UHF) were performed on neutral as well as + I charged forms of a model which was proposed already in the literature for the core structure of [Fe]-only hydrogenases. The energetics as well as vibrational spectra of the structures were obtained and discussed on theoretical grounds.
PM3 treatment of some endohedrally Se and H-2 doped C-60 systems
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2005-03-17)
Certain endohedrally Se and hydrogen doped C-60 systems, (Se + nH(2)) @ C-60 have been quantum chemically investigated by using PM3 method at the level of RHF approach. The composite structures are found to be stable but endothermic in nature. The Se@C-60 system is found to be unable to accommodate more than nine hydrogen molecules.

A donor-acceptor dyad model system using a flavin moiety as a photo-active acceptor has been synthesized for an energy and photo-induced electron transfer study. The photophysical investigations of the dyad revealed a multi-path energy and electron transfer process with a very high transfer efficiency. The photo-activity of flavin was believed to play an important role in the process, implying the potential application of flavin as a novel acceptor molecule for photovoltaics.
AM1, MNDO and MINDO/3 treatments of Huckel type cyclacenes
Tuerker, Lemi; Guemues, Selcuk (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
Huckel type cyclacenes having R = 3-10 have been subjected to quantum chemical analyses at the level of AM1, MNDO and MINDO/3 (UHF and RHF) type semi-empirical treatments. The structures have been found to be stable but endothermic in nature. No cryptoannulenic effect has been observed when AM1 (UHF) and MNDO (UHF) treatments are used. Whereas MINDO/3 (UHF) and all the RHF type calculations indicated certain degree of cryptoannulenic effect R = 4 through 8 for the heat of formation values. Frontier molecula...
PLE catalyzed enantiomeric separation of (+/-)-2-furylcarbinols
Tanyeli, Cihangir; Arkin, Ali Hakan; Akhmedov, Idris Mecidoğlu (1997-01-01)
O-Acetyl derivatives of (+/-)-2-furylcarbinols were resolved by PLE catalyzed hydrolysis to afford optically active 2-furylcarbinols in up to 98% e.e. that are valuable chiral building blocks in the synthesis of various biologically active compounds. Enantiomeric excess values were determined by using H-1-NMR and GC analysis of (S)-O-acetyllactyl ester derivatives of 2-furylcarbinols. They were also correlated with the Literature values.
