Molecularly imprinted polymers for detection of explosives: computational study on molecular interactions of 2,6-dinitrotoluene and methacrylic acid complex
Molecularly imprinted polymers can be used for molecular recognition and design of detection devices. During molecular imprinting, a monomer, such as methacrylic acid, is used to encapsulate aExpand

IR-UV double resonance spectroscopy of xanthine.
We present resonant two-photon ionization (R2PI), UV-UV, and IR-UV double resonance spectra of xanthine seeded in a supersonic jet by laser desorption. We show that there is only one tautomer ofExpand

Theoretical ab Initio Study of the Effects of Methylation on Structure and Stability of G:C Watson-Crick Base Pair
Abstract Methylation of DNA occurs most readily at N(3), N(7), and O(6) of purine bases and N(3) and O(2) of pyrimidines. Methylated bases are continuously formed through endogenous and exogenousExpand

Conventional strain energies of azetidine and phosphetane: Can density functional theory yield reliable results?
The conventional strain energies for azetidine and phosphetane are determined within the isodesmic, homodesmotic, and hyperhomodesmosis models using self‐consistent field theory, second‐order perturbation theory, and density functional theory. Expand

Theoretical Ab Initio Study of the Effects of Methylation on the Nature of Hydrogen Bonding in A:T Base Pair
Abstract We report the results of a theoretical ab initio study of methylation in Watson-Crick A:T base pairs. Equilibrium geometries were obtained without symmetry restrictions by the gradientExpand

Size dependent nonlinear optical properties of silver quantum clusters
Abstract Using solution-based method, silver quantum clusters of different sizes (Ag 20 , Ag 140 and Ag 980 ) have been synthesized and their first hyper-polarizabilities were measured usingExpand
