The energetics of the C-F, C-Cl, C-Br, and C-I bonds in 2-haloethanols was investigated by using a combination of experimental and theoretical methods. The standard molar enthalpies of formation of 2-chloro-, 2-bromo-, and 2-iodoethanol, at 298.15 K, were determined as Delta(f)H(degree)m(CH2CH2OH, l) = -315.5 +/- 0.7 kJ.mol-1, Delta(f)H(degree)mBrCH2CH2OH,(More)
The standard molar enthalpies of formation of chloro-, bromo-, and iodoacetic acids in the crystalline state, at 298.15 K, were determined as deltafH(o)m(C2H3O2Cl, cr alpha)=-(509.74+/- 0.49) kJ x mol(-1), deltafH(o)m(C2H3O2Br, cr I)-(466.98 +/- 1.08) kJ x mol(-1), and deltafH(o)m (C2H3O2I, cr)=-(415.44 +/- 1.53) kJ x mol(-1), respectively, by rotating-bomb(More)
A general strategy to determine enthalpies of formation of protic ionic liquids, based solely on enthalpy of solution measurements, was conceived and tested for 1-methylimidazolium ethanoate, leading to Δ(f)H°(m){[Hmim][O(2)CCH(3)], 1} = -(425.7 ± 1.2) kJ mol(-1). This result in conjunction with the enthalpy of formation of gaseous 1-methylimidazole (mim)(More)
The energetics of aqueous solutions of the ionic liquid (IL) 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethylsulfate in the concentration range m < 165 mol·kg(-1) was analyzed on the basis of the enthalpies of solution of the IL in water (Δ(sol)H(m)) and the enthalpies of dilution (Δ(dil)H(m)) of solutions with different IL concentrations. The data were both obtained(More)
A previously developed OPLS-based all-atom force field for organometallic compounds was extended to a series of first-, second-, and third-row transition metals based on the study of M(CO)(n) (M = Cr, Fe, Ni, Mo, Ru, or W) complexes. For materials that are solid at ambient temperature and pressure (M = Cr, Mo, W) the validation of the force field was based(More)
The study of structure-energetics relationships for active pharmaceutical ingredients has received considerable attention in recent years, due to its importance for the effective production and safe use of drugs. In this work the widely prescribed cholesterol-lowering drug simvastatin was investigated by combining experimental (combustion calorimetry and(More)
Simvastatin (SV) is a widely used drug for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia in humans. Nevertheless, serious efforts are still being made to develop new SV formulations with, for example, improved tabletability or bioavailability properties. These efforts frequently involve heating the compound well above ambient temperature or even fusion. In this(More)
The standard molar enthalpies of formation and sublimation of crystalline (monoclinic, space group P2(1)/c) nicotinic acid (NA), at 298.15 K, were determined as Delta(f)H(m)(o)(NA, cr) = -344.7 +/- 1.2 kJ x mol(-1) and Delta(sub)H(m)(o)(NA) = 112.1 +/- 0.5 kJ x mol(-1) by using combustion calorimetry, drop-sublimation Calvet microcalorimetry, and the(More)
There are conflicting reports on the origin of the effect of Y substituents on the S-H bond dissociation enthalpies (BDEs) in 4-Y-substituted thiophenols, 4-YC(6)H(4)S-H. The differences in S-H BDEs, [4-YC(6)H(4)S-H] - [C(6)H(5)S-H], are known as the total (de)stabilization enthalpies, TSEs, where TSE = RSE - MSE, i.e., the radical (de)stabilization(More)
