Covellite (CuS) is an important mineral sulfide that can be used in many technological applications. It has a simple formula but a complex structure consisting of alternating layers of planar CuS3 triangles and CuS4 tetrahedrons with S-S bonds. Accurate first-principles calculations are performed for covellite structure (CuS), aiming to provide insights(More)
Fe(III) hydrolysis in aqueous solution has been investigated using density-functional methods (DFT). All possible structures arising from different tautomers and multiplicities have been calculated. The solvation energy has been estimated using the UAHF-PCM method. The hydrolysis free energies have been estimated and compared with the available experimental(More)
The common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris, is predominantly grown on small farms and lacks accurate genotype recommendations for specific micro-regions in Brazil. This contributes to a low national average yield. The aim of this study was to use the methods of the harmonic mean of the relative performance of genetic values (HMRPGV) and the centroid, for selecting(More)
The present work describes the crystal structure, vibrational spectra, and theoretical calculations of ammonium salts of 3,5-bis-(dicyanomethylene)cyclopentane-1,2,4-trionate, (NH(4))(2)(C(11)N(4)O(3)) [(NH(4))(2)CV], also known as ammonium croconate violet. This compound crystallizes in triclinic P1 and contains two water molecules per unit formula. The(More)
Five salts of 1,2,4,5-benzenetetracarboxylic acid (pyromellitic acid), [C6H2(COO)4H4], have been synthesized and investigated by infrared and Raman spectroscopy and by single crystal X-ray diffraction methods: sodium salt [Na2(H2O)2][C6H2(COO)4H2], potassium salt [K(H2O)3][C6H2(COO)4H3] and transition metal salts [M(H2O)6][C6H2(COO)4H2], which M = Mn, Ni(More)
Different polymorphs of Nb2O5 can be obtained depending on the pressure and temperature of calcination leading to different catalytic properties. Two polymorphs of niobia, T-Nb2O5 and B-Nb2O5, have been investigated by means of density functional/plane waves method. The equation of state predicted that B-Nb2O5 phase is more stable than the T-Nb2O5 at low(More)
(+)-Bergenin (1) was isolated from Sacoglottis uchi, a species of vegetable found in the Amazon region and popularly used for the treatment of several hepatic problems. The structure of 1 was fully characterized using IR, GC-MS and NMR (1D and 2D) analyses. This phytoconstituent has been used as an oriental folk medicine for the treatment of many diseases(More)
In this paper we show a very simple route for the incorporation of catalytically active niobium species on the surface of carbon materials, such as graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes and activated carbon. Some existing methods of incorporating a transition metal on a support have involved co-precipitation or wet impregnation, to obtain the corresponding(More)
