It is of considerable interest to prepare weakly ligated, labile ligand (WLLL) nanoparticles for applications in areas such as chemical catalysis. WLLL nanoparticles can be defined as nanoparticles with sufficient, albeit minimal, surface ligands of moderate binding strength to meta-stabilize nanoparticles, initial stabilizer ligands that can be readily replaced by other, desired, more strongly coordinating ligands and removed completely when desired. Herein, we describe WLLL nanoparticles prepared from [Ir(1,5-COD)Cl](2) reduction under H-2, in acetone. The results suggest that H+Cl--stabilized Ir(0)(n) nanoparticles, herein Ir(0)(n)center dot(H+Cl-)(a), serve as a WLLL nanoparticle for the preparation of, as illustrative examples, five specific nanoparticle products: Ir(0)(n)center dot(Cl-Bu3NH+)(a), Ir(0)(n)center dot(Cl(-)Dodec(3)NH(+))(a), Ir(0)(n)center dot(POct(3))(0.2n)(Cl-H+)(b), Ir(0)(n)center dot(POct(3))(0.2n), and the gamma-Al2O3-supported heterogeneous catalyst, Ir(0)(n)center dot(gamma-Al2O3)(a)(Cl-H+)(b). (where a and b vary for the differently ligated nanoparticles; in addition, solvent can be present as a nanoparticle surface ligand). With added POct(3) as a key, prototype example, an important feature is that a minimum, desired, experimentally determinable amount of ligand (e.g., just 0.2 equiv POct(3) per mole of Ir) can be added, which is shown to provide sufficient stabilization that the resultant Ir(0)(n)center dot(POct(3))(0.2n)(Cl-H+)(b) is isolable. Additionally, the initial labile ligand stabilizer HCl can be removed to yield Ir(0)(n)center dot(POct(3))(0.2n) that is >99% free of Cl- by a AgCl precipitation test. The results provide strong support for the weakly ligated, labile ligand nanoparticle concept and specific support for Ir(0)(n)center dot(H+Cl-)(a) as a WLLL nanoparticle.

An aqueous dispersion of niosomes (non-ionic surfactant vesicles) emulsified in an external oil phase forms the vesicle-in-water-in-oil (v/w/o) system described in this paper. The properties of the surfactant used to form the vesicles, the surfactant or surfactant mixture used to stabilize the emulsion and the nature of the oil phase can be changed to provide systems of different capacities for drug or antigen and different release characteristics. The same nonionic surfactant is used as the principle amphi...

There are several physical and chemical methods for synthesizing nanomaterials, while the most appropriate techniques involve using green chemistry and eco-friendly material. Recently, green synthesized materials for different applications have gained attention as a result of their environmental friendliness and cost-effectiveness. Applying green synthesized nanoparticles (NPS) in food packaging has been extensively investigated. Biopolymers require filler to enhance the optical, barrier, thermal, antimicro...
Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Association of Antibiotics with the Aminoglycoside Acetyltransferase (3)-IIIb, a Resistance-Causing Enzyme
Norris, Adrianne L.; Özen, Can; Serpersu, Engin H. (2010-05-18)
The thermodynamic and kinetic properties of interactions of antibiotics with the aminoglycoside acetyltransferase (3)-IIIb (AAC) are determined with several experimental methods. These data represent the first such characterization of an enzyme that modifies the 2-deoxystreptamine ring common to all aminoglycoside antibiotics. Antibiotic substrates For AAC include kanamycin A, kanamycin B, tobramycin, sisomicin, neomycin B, paromomycin, lividomycin A, and ribostamycin. Kinetic studies show that kanamycin gr...

The aims of this study are to form a liquid membrane suitable for the extraction of strontium ions from aqueous solutions and to determine the factors influencing the stability of the membrane, the extraction efficiency and the rate of transport. The suggested membrane is composed of kerosene, Span 80 and D2EHPA. It has been observed that the extraction efficiency and the rate of transport increase with increasing ratio of emulsion to outer phase volume, stirring rate and D2EHPA concentration and decreasing...

Gold-based heterogeneous catalysts have attracted significant attention due to their selective partial oxidation capabilities, providing promising alternatives for the traditional industrial homogeneous catalysts. In the current study, the energetics of adsorption/desorption of alcohols (CH3OH/methanol, CH3CH2OH/ethanol, CH3CH2CH2OH/n-propanol) and esters (HCOOCH3/methyl formate, CH3COOCH3/methyl acetate, and CH3COOCH2CH3/ethyl acetate) on a planar Au(111) surface was investigated in conjunction with oxidat...
