Novel mesostructured hybrid materials containing a molybdenum Schiff base complex grafted on the internal surface of SBA-15 pores were prepared by introducing MoO2(acac)(2) into a mesoporous silica functionalized with Schiff base ligands. The SBA-15 supports modified by an amine or salicylaldehyde were obtained by co-condensation of tetraethylorthosilicate and the corresponding organosilane in the presence of Pluronic P123 surfactant as a structure directing agent using bis[3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl]amine or 5-chloromethylsalicylaldehyde coupled with bis[3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl]amine as precursor. The molybdenum (VI) complexes immobilized on the internal surface of SBA-15 pores were employed as catalyst in the epoxidation of various alkenes using tert-butylhydroperoxide as oxidant. These immobilized molybdenum complexes are highly active and selective catalysts in liquid phase olefin epoxidation in dichloroethane at 84 degrees C. Leaching tests and metal analysis of reaction solutions showed that the kinetically competent catalyst is the molybdenum complex immobilized on the internal surface of SBA-15 pores and there is no molybdenum species in the solution.

Novel neutral phosphinite bridged dinuclear ruthenium(II) arene complexes and their catalytic use in transfer hydrogenation of aromatic ketones: X-ray structure of a new Schiff base, N3,N3 '-di-2-hydroxybenzylidene-[2,2 ']bipyridinyl-3,3 '-diamine

A novel Schiff base N3,N3'-di-2-hydroxybenzylidene-[2,2']bipyridinyl-3,3'-diamine, 1 was synthesized from condensation of salicylaldehyde with 3,3'-diamino-2,2'-bipyridine. Reaction of 1 with two equivalents of PPh(2)Cl in the presence of Et(3)N proceeds in toluene to give N3,N3'-di-2-(diphenylphosphino)benzylidene-[2,2']bipyridinyl-3,3'-diamine, 2 in quantitative yield. Ruthenium(II) dimers [Ru(eta(6)-arene)(mu-Cl)]Cl](2) readily react with phosphinite ligand [(Ph(2)PO)(2)-C(24)H(16)N(4)], 2 in toluene at ...
Remarkable cooperative action of two zinc centers in the hydrolysis of plasmid DNA
Aka, FN; Akkaya, Mahinur; Akkaya, EU (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-08)
A novel binuclear zinc complex has been synthesized. The complex is highly efficient in the hydrolysis of plasmid DNA at pH 7.5. Furthermore, a comparison to a mononuclear complex reveals a high level of cooperativity between the two metal ion centers.

ATEŞ, MURAT; Cinar, Damla; Caliskan, Sinan; GEÇGEL, ÜNAL; ÜNER, OSMAN; BAYRAK, YÜKSEL; Candan, Idris (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
Activated carbons (ACs) are successfully synthesized from Elaeagnus grain by a simple chemical synthesis methodology and demonstrated as novel, suitable supercapacitor electrode materials for graphene hydrogel (GH)/AC nanocomposites. GH/AC nanocomposites are synthesized via hydrothermal process at temperature of 180 degrees C. The low-temperature thermal exfoliation approach is convenient for mass production of graphene hydrogel (GH) at low cost and it can be used as electrode material for energy storage ap...
Carboligation reactivity of benzaldehyde lyase (BAL, EC covalently attached to magnetic nanoparticles
TURAL, Bilsen; Turan, Ilke Simsek; TURAL, SERVET; Celebi, Bulent; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2013-03-31)
Epoxy-functionalized Fe3O4-SiO2 core-shell magnetic nanoparticles (epoxy-M-support) were prepared by modification with glycidyloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) methods. Pure histidine-tagged recombinant benzaldehydelyase (BAL, EC 4.1.238) was efficiently immobilized onto the epoxy-M-support with covalent binding. An immobilized BAL epoxy-M-support system was tested to cat...

Herein, we developed a precursor approach toward the design of a titanium nitride (TiN)/silicon nitride (Si3N4) nanocomposite with an activated carbon monolith as a support matrix forming a highly micro-/mesoporous component to be used as a Pt support for the catalytic hydrolysis of sodium borohydride (NaBH4) as a model reaction. The experimental data demonstrated that the amorphous Si3N4 matrix, the strong Pt-TiN nanocluster interaction and the synergistic effects between the three components contributed t...
