Valence topological charge-transfer (CT) indices are applied to the calculationof dipole moments μ. The μ calculated by algebraic and vector semisums of the CTindices are defined. The model is generalized for molecules with heteroatoms andcorrected for sp3-heteromolecules. The ability of the indices for the description of themolecular charge distribution is established by comparing them with μ of the valence-isoelectronic series of cyclopentadiene, benzene and styrene. Two CT indices, μvec(vector semisum of vertex-pair μ) and μvecV (valence μvec) are proposed. The μvecVbehaviour is intermediate between μvec and μexperiment. The correction is produced in thecorrect direction. The best results are obtained for the greatest group. Inclusion of theheteroatom in the π-electron system is beneficial for the description of μ, owing to eitherthe role of additional p and/or d orbitals provided by the heteroatom or the role of stericfactors in the π-electron conjugation. The steric effect is almost constant along the seriesand the dominating effect is electronic. Inclusion of the heteroatom enhances μ, whichcan improve the solubility of the molecule. For heteroatoms in the same group, the ringsize and the degree of ring flattering are inversely proportional to their electronegativity. Full article

A route to methyl pyrrolo[2,3-d][1,2,3]thiadiazole-6-carboxylates as potential plant activators and inducers of systemic acquired resistance (SAR) is reported. A synthetic strategy based on cyclization of the thiadiazole ring system utilizing thionyl chloride via the Hurd-Mori protocol as key step was developed. Success of the ring closure reaction turned out to be highly dependent on the nature of the N-protecting group of the pyrrolidine precursor. While electron donors such as alkyl gave only poor conversion to the required 1,2,3-thiadiazoles, an electron withdrawing substituent such as methyl carbamate gave superior yields. Full article

A fast and simple method for the oxidative iodination of some activated arenes and heteroarenes, either under microwave irradiation or by conventional heating, is reported, using diiodine and ortho-periodic acid as the oxidant. The reactions were carried out in hot 95% ethanol under a reflux condenser. For the microwave assisted reactions, the reaction times were always notably shortened, but the yields were nearly the same as those afforded by the conventional method. Full article

The sequence specific recognitions between DNAs and proteins play important roles in many biological functions. The use of double-stranded DNA arrays (ds-DNA arrays) for studying sequence specific recognition between DNAs and proteins is a promising method. Here we report the use of a ds-DNA probe with multi operation sites of restriction proteins in the middle sequence to investigate DNA-protein sequence-specific interactions including methylation. We arranged EcoR I site and Rsa I site on the same duplex DNA probe to fabricate ds-DNA arrays. We used the ds-DNA arrays to study DNA-restriction enzyme reactions before and after duplex DNA methylation under different probe concentration and reaction time conditions. Our results indicated that the ds-DNA arrays can be further biochemically modified and made accessible for interactions between DNAs and proteins in complex multi-step gene-regulation processes.

The solvent effect on the position of the carbonyl vibrational stretching ofacetylferrocene in aprotic media was studied in this work. The solvent-induced shifts in thisorganometallic compound were interpreted in terms of the alternative reaction field model(SCRF-MO) proposed by Kolling. In contrast to the established trends for carbonyl groupsin organic systems, the results suggest that the continuum models for the reaction field arenot adequate and that the influence of dipolarity-polarizability described by aninhomogeneous coupling function θ (ε ) L(n 2 ) that assumes optical dielectric saturation isresponsible for the carbonyl band shift and, there is empirical evidence that the effect offield-induced intermolecular interaction on band shift, interpreted in terms of the van derWaals forces from the solvent, have a important contribution to this phenomena.
