Summary : Magnetic dipole interactions are extensively used in NMR and EPR spectroscopies to probe interatomic distances between paramagnetic centers when crystal structures are not readily available. However, this usually concerns spin carriers whose spin density is fully localised, such magnetic nuclei, transition-metal ions and organic radicals. In this work we show that it is possible to...[more]

Abstract: The double aminolysis reaction of [Co{N(SiMe3)2}2] by the salt 1-(6-((dicyclohexylphosphaneyl)methyl)pyridin-2-yl)-3-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-1H-imidazol-3-ium bromide, which contains one phosphane, one pyridine and one imidazolium groups, of formula [o-Cy2PCH2(C5H3N)(o-C3H3N2DiPP)]Br and abbreviated as (CyPNpyrCim)Br, was previously shown to afford the Co(II) complex [Co(CyP*NaCNHC)Br]...[more]

Biomolecules [Biophysique des membranes et RMN]

Abstract: Biophysical and structural investigations are presented with a focus on the membrane lipid interactions of cationic linear antibiotic peptides such as magainin, PGLa, LL37, and melittin. Observations made with these peptides are distinct as seen from data obtained with the hydrophobic peptide alamethicin. The cationic amphipathic peptides predominantly adopt membrane alignments...[more]

Abstract: Host-guest systems provide excellent models to explore molecular recognition in solution along with relevant technological applications from drug carriers to chemosensors. Here, we present a linear interaction energy (LIE) model to predict the binding affinity in host-guests with remarkable efficiency and predictive power. Using four host families including cucurbiturils, octa acids,...[more]

Significance Myosins are motor proteins involved in the transport of cellular cargoes and muscle contraction. Upon interaction with actin, the motor domain undergoes a conformational transition, called powerstroke, in which the lever arm is swung to generate force and directional motion. The recovery stroke reprimes the motor by coupling the reverse swing of the lever arm to ATP hydrolysis....[more]

High-nuclearity silver clusters are appealing synthetic targets for their remarkable structures, but most are isolated serendipitously. We report here six giant silver-thiolate clusters mediated by solvents, which not only dictate the formation of an octahedral Ag64+ kernel, but also influence the in situ-generated Mo-based anion templates. The typical sevenfold symmetric silver nanowheels show a...[more]

Enamides equipped with N-acyliminium ion precursors were obtained through reduction of ynamides tethered to N-imides. Intramolecular TMSOTf-mediated trapping of N-acyliminium ions provided a variety of polyfunctionalized medium-sized diaza-heterocycles of putative pharmacological interest.   Référence : Lucile Andna and Laurence MieschTrapping of N-Acyliminium Ions with Enamides: An Approach...[more]
