The molecular structure and conformational properties of S-ethyl thioacetate, CH3COSCH2CH3, were determined in the gas phase by electron diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy (IR and Raman). The experimental investigations were supplemented by ab initio (MP2) and DFT quantum chemical calculations at different levels of theory. Theoretical methods reveal(More)
We present molecular dynamics (MD) simulation studies of the interaction of a chemo preventive and protective agent, S-methyl methanethiosulfonate (MMTS), with a model bilayer of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC). We analyzed and compared its diffusion mechanisms with the related molecule dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). We obtained spatially(More)
The aim of this work is to evaluate the vibrational and structural properties of l-cysteine ethyl ester hydrochloride (CE), and its electronic behavior mainly in relation to the action of the thiol and amine groups at different degrees of solvation. The crystal structure of CE was determined at room temperature by X-ray diffraction methods. Infrared and(More)
The present study is a first step towards the investigation of S-methyl methanethiosulfonate (MMTS) interaction with membrane model systems like liposomes. In this paper, the interaction of MMTS with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) bilayers was studied by FTIR and SERS spectroscopy. Lysolipid effect on vesicle stability was studied. The results show(More)
Vibrational and electronic spectra for 1-benzyl-3-(2-furoyl) thiourea were calculated by using density functional method (B3LYP) with different basis sets. The complete assignment of all vibrational modes was performed on basis of the calculated frequencies and comparing with the reported IR and Raman spectra for that thiourea derivative. UV-visible(More)
Bis (trifluoromethyl) sulfone, CF(3)SO(2)CF(3), was obtained as a byproduct in the synthesis of CF(3)SO(2)SCF(3). The compound was characterized by infrared and Raman spectroscopy as well quantum chemical calculations. Quantum mechanical calculations indicate the possible existence of two conformers symmetrically equivalent with C(2) symmetry. The(More)
