Screening of small-molecule libraries is an important aspect of probe and drug discovery science. Numerous authors have suggested that bioactive natural products are attractive starting points for such libraries because of their structural complexity and sp(3)-rich character. Here, we describe the construction of a screening library based on representative(More)
The electronic structures and stability of nitrogen nanostructures, nanotubes, and fiberlike nanoneedles of various diameters, formed by units N2m (m = 2-6), were studied by quantum chemistry computational modeling methods. The geometrical structures with various cross-sections and terminal units, their energetic stability, and their rather peculiar(More)
The existence of a family of very thin carbon needlelike nanostructures is predicted: the geometry and stability of several carbon nanoneedles (CNNs) formed by C4 and C6 units have been studied by quantum chemistry computational modeling methods. The structures of carbon nanoneedles are tighter than even the smallest single wall nanotubes (SWNTs) based on(More)
