Cation modulation of carbonyldipyrrinone (CDP) fluorescence: emission-ratiometric sensing of calcium

Coskun, A

Optically dilute solutions of 2,3,7,8-tetraethyl-N,N'-carbonyldipyrrinone displays an absorbance peak at 401 nm and an emission peak at 493 nm in acetonitrile. The two carbonyl groups in the structure seems to be optimally placed for cation coordination, and when calcium ions are added in the form of a perchlorate salt, a remarkable bathochromic change in the absorption and emission spectrum takes place: the absorption peak shifts by 24 nm and the emission peak shifts by 49 nm towards the red end of the visible spectrum. The shift in the emission spectrum allows wavelength ratiometric assessment of calcium concentration. In addition, the response is highly selective with respect to the cations added.


Effect of progesterone on DPPC membrane: Evidence for lateral phase separation and inverse action in lipid dynamics
Korkmaz, F; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2005-08-15)
Interactions of progesterone with zwitterionic dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) triultilamellar liposomes were investigated as a function of temperature and progesterone concentration by using three non-invasive techniques namely Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, turbidity at 440 nm, and differential scanning calorimetry. The results reveal that progesterone changes the physical properties of DPPC bilayers by decreasing the main phase-transition temperature, abolishing the pre-transition, broad...
The low spin - high spin equilibrium in the S-2-state of the water oxidizing enzyme
Boussac, Alain; Ugur, Ilke; Marıon, Antoıne; Sugiura, Miwa; Kaila, Ville R. I.; Rutherford, A. William (Elsevier BV, 2018-05-01)
In Photosystem II (PSII), the Mn4CaO5-cluster of the active site advances through five sequential oxidation states (S-0 to S-4) before water is oxidized and O-2 is generated. Here, we have studied the transition between the low spin (LS) and high spin (HS) configurations of S-2 using EPR spectroscopy, quantum chemical calculations using Density Functional Theory (DFT), and time-resolved UV-visible absorption spectroscopy. The EPR experiments show that the equilibrium between S-2(LS) and S-2(HS) is pH depend...
Radiative Heat Transfer in the Dilute Zone of an Air-Fired Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustor and Its Oxy-Fired Retrofit
Ozen, G.; Aydin, F.; Selçuk, Nevin (2016-01-01)
A 2D radiation model based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) coupled with spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases model (SLW) is developed to predict radiative heat fluxes along the dilute zone of the lignite-fired 150 kWt Middle East Technical University (METU) circulating fluidized bed combustor (CFBC) under both air-fired and oxy-fired conditions. The dilute zone is treated as an axisymmetric cylindrical enclosure containing a non-gray, absorbing-emitting-isotrop...
Annealing effect on the low temperature thermoluminescence properties of GaSe single crystals
Isik, M.; Hadibrata, W.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2014-10-01)
Trapping centers in as-grown GaSe single crystals have been investigated by thermoluminescence (TL) measurements in the temperature range of 30-300 K. The analysis of the observed peaks in TL glow curve to determine the activation energies of the associated centers were accomplished using curve fitting, initial rise and peak shape methods. Activation energies of the revealed four trapping centers obtained from various methods were in good agreement with each other on the energy values of 0.14, 0.18, 0.24 an...
Interaction of bromine with Ni(110) studied by scanning tunnelling microscopy
Fishlock, T.W.; Pethica, J.B.; Oral, Ahmet; Egdell, R.G.; Jones, F.H. (1999-05-10)
The adsorption of bromine on Ni(110) has been studied by scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM). At low bromine coverage 'butterfly' structures are observed in STM, built up from 'pairs of pairs' of greyscale maxima. Two alternative models for the butterflies are discussed, the most plausible of which involves location of dissociated Br atoms in two-fold hollow sites flanked by pairs of Ni adatoms. At higher coverages the discrete butterfly structure breaks down and adatom pairs form a disordered arrangement...
