Ab initio and density functional theoretical studies on hydrogen-bonded complexes of azabenzenes with water, acetamide, and thioacetamide have been carried out to explore the controversy involved in the relative order of their stability in a systematic way. The interaction energies of these complexes have been analyzed using the Morokuma energy(More)
The hydrogen-bonded dimers of formic acid derivatives XCOOH (X = H, F, Cl, and CH3) have been investigated using density functional theory (B3LYP) and second-order Møller-Plesset perturbation (MP2) methods, with the geometry optimization carried out using 6-311++G(2d,2p) basis set. The dimerization energies calculated using aug-cc-pVXZ (with X = D and T)(More)
The structure, spectral properties and the hydrogen bond interactions of 8-aza analogues of xanthine, theophylline and caffeine have been studied by using quantum chemical methods. The time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) and the singly excited configuration interaction (CIS) methods are employed to optimize the excited state geometries of(More)
A pyrolysis assisted method was applied for the synthesis of defect controlled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by varying different growth temperatures. The fabricated resistive devices containing a random network of CNTs were tested for oxygen sensing under standard room-temperature and pressure conditions. Nanotubes grown at moderate growth temperatures (870 °C),(More)
In this work, using ab initio and density functional theory (DFT) methods halogen substituted formic acid (FA) dimer is studied. The dimer stability is due to the hydrogen bonds, either conventional (OH⋯O, OH⋯F, OH⋯Cl) or non-conventional (CH⋯O, CH⋯F, CH⋯Cl). Among all the dimers, trans-trans form is more stable than the trans-cis, and cis-cis form. Basis(More)
Twenty cocaine-water complexes were studied using density functional theory (DFT) B3LYP/6-311++G** level to understand their geometries, energies, vibrational frequencies, charge transfer and topological parameters. Among the 20 complexes, 12 are neutral and eight are protonated in the cocaine-water complexes. Based on the interaction energy, the protonated(More)
A theoretical study to understand the interaction between anion and the water molecules through the hydration (X(-)·(H2O)n (X=OH, NO2, NO3, CO3), where n=1-10), using the density functional theory method with B3LYP functional and 6-311++G(d,p) basis set has been carried out systematically. In these hydrated clusters we notice three different cases of bond(More)
The nature of binding mechanism of toluidine blue O (TBO) with chicken egg white lysozyme was studied comprehensively by various spectroscopic and computational methods. Both steady state and time-resolved fluorescence studies unambiguously point to the prevalence of static quenching mechanism in lysozyme-TBO system. Thermodynamic parameters revealed that(More)
