The application of (211)At to targeted cancer therapy is currently hindered by the rapid deastatination that occurs in vivo. As the deastatination mechanism is unknown, we tackled this issue from the viewpoint of the intrinsic properties of At-involving chemical bonds. An apparent correlation has been evidenced between in vivo stability of (211)At-labeled(More)
We propose here an evaluation of chemically intuitive distributed electrostatic moments using the topological analysis of the electron localization function (ELF). As this partition of the total charge density provides an accurate representation of the molecular dipole, the distributed electrostatic moments based on the ELF partition (DEMEP) allows(More)
In order to assess the ability of theory to describe properly the dispersive interactions that are ubiquitous in peptide and protein systems, an isolated short peptide chain has been studied using both gas-phase laser spectroscopy and quantum chemistry. The experimentally observed coexistence of an extended form and a folded form in the supersonic expansion(More)
Following a previous study by de Courcy et al. (Interdiscip. Sci. Comput. Life Sci. 2009, 1, 55-60), we demonstrate in this contribution, using quantum chemistry, that metal cations exhibit a specific topological signature in the electron localization of their density interacting with ligands according to their “soft” or “hard” character. Introducing the(More)
The nature of the chemical bonding in the 1:1 complexes formed by the fourth period transition metals (Sc, ..., Cu) with 14 electrons (N(2), CN(-), C(2)H(2)) and 10 electrons (NH(3), H(2)O, F(-)) ligands has been investigated at the ROB3LYP/6-311+G(2d) level by the ELF topological approach. The bonding is ruled by the nature of the ligand. The 10 electrons(More)
The successive hydrogenation of CO has been investigated by two methods. The first is hydrogenation of a CO surface. The second is co-injection of CO molecules and H atoms. Both methods have been performed at 3 and 10 K. In the first method, the interaction of H atoms with solid CO at 10 K shows that CO is consumed to form H(2)CO and CH(3)OH. No trace of(More)
Hybrids consisting of a metal oxide nanoparticle and a molecule show strong enhancement of Raman modes due to an interfacial charge transfer process that induces the formation of midgap states, thereby reducing the effective gap compared to that of the nanoparticle and creating the posibility of an electronic resonance at energies substantially lower than(More)
Recent experimental results about the oxidation of methionine enkephalin by ·OH radicals indicated an intramolecular electron transfer between the C-terminal methionine radical cation and the tyrosine N-terminus too fast to be observed. We have investigated the thermodynamic possibility of this intramolecular electron transfer by calculating the(More)
New insights in Quantum Chemical Topology of one-electron density functions have been proposed here by using a recent grid-based algorithm (Tang et al., J Phys Condens Matter 2009, 21, 084204), initially designed for the decomposition of the electron density. Beyond the charge analysis, we show that this algorithm is suitable for different scalar functions(More)
