The oxidation of sulfides with H(2)O(2) catalyzed by iron tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)porphyrin in EtOH is an efficient and chemoselective process. With a catalyst concentration 0.03-0.09% of that of the substrate, sulfoxides are obtained with yields generally around 90-95% of isolated product. With vinyl and allyl sulfides, no epoxidation is observed. With(More)
A full quantitative analysis of Fe K-edge X-ray absorption spectra has been performed for hemes in two porphynato complexes, that is, iron(III) tetraphenylporphyrin chloride (Fe(III)TPPCl) and iron(III) tetraphenylporphyrin bis(imidazole) (Fe(III)TPP(Imid)2), in two protein complexes whose X-ray structure is known at atomic resolution (1.0 A), that is,(More)
In the current ΛCDM cosmological scenario, N -body simulations provide us with a Universal mass profile, and consequently a Universal equilibrium circular velocity of the virialized objects, as galaxies. In this paper we obtain, by combining kinematical data of their inner regions with global observational properties, the Universal Rotation Curve (URC) of(More)
The structural behavior of geminal dicationic ionic liquid 1,n-bis[3-methylimidazolium-1-yl] alkane bromide ([Cn(mim)2]Br2)/water mixtures has been studied using extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy in combination with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The properties of the mixtures are investigated as a function of both water(More)
Motivated by the recent observational and theoretical evidence that long Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) are likely associated with low metallicity, rapidly rotating massive stars, we examine the cosmological star formation rate (SFR) below a critical metallicity Zcrit ∼ Z⊙/10 − Z⊙/5, to estimate the event rate of high-redshift long GRB progenitors. To this(More)
The vaporization behaviour and thermodynamics of the ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethyl)sulfonylimide (BMImNTf2) were studied by combining the Knudsen Effusion Mass Loss (KEML) and Knudsen Effusion Mass Spectrometry (KEMS) techniques. KEML studies were carried out in a large temperature range (398-567) K by using effusion orifices(More)
The TiO(2) photocatalyzed oxidation of cis-2-methylcyclopentyl phenyl sulfoxide in the presence of Ag(2)SO(4) in MeCN/H(2)O leads to the formation of 1-methylcyclopentanol, 1-methylcyclopentyl acetamide, and phenyl benzenethiosulfonate as the main reaction products. It is suggested that the C-S heterolysis in the radical cation is an unimolecular process(More)
The Herschel ATLAS is the largest open-time key project that will be carried out on the Herschel Space Observatory. It will survey 510 square degrees of the extragalactic sky, four times larger than all the other Herschel surveys combined, in five far-infrared and submillimetre bands. We describe the survey, the complementary multi-wavelength datasets that(More)
A family of imine-based nonheme iron(II) complexes (LX)2Fe(OTf)2 has been prepared, characterized, and employed as C-H oxidation catalysts. Ligands LX (X = 1, 2, 3, and 4) stand for tridentate imine ligands resulting from spontaneous condensation of 2-pycolyl-amine and 4-substituted-2-picolyl aldehydes. Fast and quantitative formation of the complex occurs(More)
Laser and steady-state photolysis, sensitized by NMQ+, of PhSCH(R)X 1-4 (R = H, Ph; X =SiMe3, CO2H) was carried out in CH3CN. The formation of 1+*-4+* was clearly shown. All radical cations undergo a fast first-order fragmentation reaction involving C-Si bond cleavage with 1+* and 2+* and C-C bond cleavage with 3+* and 4+*. The desilylation reaction of 1+*(More)
