In this paper, the interaction of arbutin with dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine bilayers was studied by FTIR spectrometry. The results show that arbutin interacts in different extents with the phosphate and carbonyl groups of membranes in the gel state, the liquid crystalline state or subjected to osmotic stress. The effect, in the presence of water, on the(More)
The present study is a first step towards the investigation of S-methyl methanethiosulfonate (MMTS) interaction with membrane model systems like liposomes. In this paper, the interaction of MMTS with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) bilayers was studied by FTIR and SERS spectroscopy. Lysolipid effect on vesicle stability was studied. The results show(More)
The molecular structure of 2-isopropyl-5-methyl-1,4-benzoquinone, C(6)O(2)H(2) (CH(3))(3)CH, has been optimized using methods based on density functional theory (DFT) and Moller-Plesset second-order perturbation theory (MP2). As regards C(6)O(2)H(2) (CH(3))(3)CH, two populated conformations with C(1) (trans) and C(s) (cis) symmetries are obtained, the(More)
The geometry of iodotrimethylgermane has been determined by experimental and computational methods. Fourier transform infrared spectra have been recorded over a range of temperatures along with the Raman spectrum to obtain comprehensive vibrational data for the fundamental modes. The stretching, rocking, and deformation bands of the methyl groups have been(More)
The molecular structure and conformational properties of S-ethyl thioacetate, CH3COSCH2CH3, were determined in the gas phase by electron diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy (IR and Raman). The experimental investigations were supplemented by ab initio (MP2) and DFT quantum chemical calculations at different levels of theory. Theoretical methods reveal(More)
The interactions were studied by FTIR and DSC of the terminal lactone of annonaceous acetogenins (ACGs) and synthetic analogues, such as THF, with POPC bilayers, as well as the toxic effect produced by these compounds on Spodoptera frugiperda larvae. The aim of this work was to find a relationship between ACG insecticidal properties and the specific sites(More)
In the present article, the molecular structure of S-methyl thiobutanoate, CH3CH2CH2C(O)SCH3 was determined by ab initio (MP2) and DFT calculations using different basis sets. The infrared and Raman spectra for the liquid phase were also recorded and the bands observed were assigned to the vibrational normal modes. The experimental and calculations confirm(More)
The molecular structure of 2,2,2-trichloroethoxysulfonamide, CCl3CH2OSO2NH2, has been determined in the solid state by X-ray diffraction data and in the gas phase by ab initio (MP2) and DFT calculations. The substance crystallizes in the monoclinic P21/c space group with a = 9.969(3)Å, b = 22.914(6)Å, c = 7.349(2)Å, β = 91.06(3)°, and Z = 8 molecules per(More)
The infrared spectra of CCl3SO2OCH2CF3 were obtained in the gaseous, liquid and solid states and complemented with the Raman spectrum of the liquid. Quantum chemistry calculations using the density functional theory (DFT) were used to predict the most stable geometry and conformation of the studied molecule. The harmonic vibrational frequencies and force(More)
We have carried out a structural and vibrational theoretical study for chromyl nitrate. The density functional theory has been used to study its structure and vibrational properties. The geometries were fully optimised at the B3LYP/Lanl2DZ, B3LYP/6-31G* and B3LYP/6-311++G levels of theory and the harmonic vibrational frequencies were evaluated at the same(More)
