A new approach for the analysis of intermolecular interactions in a solution is proposed. The changes in the interaction energy components due to the solvent effects are estimated on the basis of the interaction energy calculated in the presence of the electric field induced in a polarizable medium, or in the field of the effective fragment potentials.(More)
Permanent need to understand nature, structure and properties of humic substances influences also separation methods that are in a wide scope used for fractionation, characterization and analysis of humic substances (HS). At the first glance techniques based on size-exclusion phenomena are the most useful and utilized for relating elution data to the(More)
Twenty hydrogen-bonded complexes composed of nucleic acid base and amino acid side chain have been analyzed using ab initio quantum chemistry methods with the aim of gaining insights into the nature of molecular interactions in these systems. The intermolecular interaction energies were estimated using the second-order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory and(More)
We report the partitioning of the interaction-induced static electronic dipole (hyper)polarizabilities for linear hydrogen cyanide complexes into contributions arising from various interaction energy terms. We analyzed the nonadditivities of the studied properties and used these data to predict the electric properties of an infinite chain. The(More)
We propose a new approach for estimating the electrostatic part of the excitation energy transfer (EET) coupling between electronically excited chromophores based on the transition density-derived cumulative atomic multipole moments (TrCAMM). In this approach, the transition potential of a chromophore is expressed in terms of truncated distributed(More)
The intermolecular hydrogen bonds in dimers of formic acid, acetic acid, and formamide were investigated. Additionally, three configurations of the pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid (PCA) dimer were studied to analyze how the pyrrole pi-electron system influences the carboxylic groups connected by double O-H...O hydrogen bonds. The ab initio calculations for the(More)
Understanding the effects of ultraviolet radiation on nucleotides in solution is an important step towards a comprehensive description of the photochemistry of nucleic acids and their constituents. Apart from having implications for mutagenesis and DNA photoprotection mechanisms, the photochemistry of cytidines is a central element in UV-assisted syntheses(More)
Liquid chromatography method arranged around RP-HPLC using step-wise gradients of dimethylformamide (DMF) in pH 3.0 aqueous phosphate buffered mobile phase and a wide-pore (30 nm) 4mm inner diameter (I.D.) octadecylsilica column was applied to the fractionation separation of soil and peat humic substances (HS), respectively. Combination of acceptable DMF(More)
Newly developed method for characterisation and analysis of humic substances (HS) and humic-like substances (HULIS) in air dust particles was tested for potential interferences caused by abundant co-sampled pollens (common dandelion, common wormwood-absinth, apple tree). RP-HPLC using 10-step gradient of dimethylformamide (DMF) in a buffered aqueous mobile(More)
RP-HPLC using stepwise gradients of dimethylformamide (DMF) in buffered aqueous mobile phase and a wide-pore (30 nm) octadecylsilica column has been applied to the analysis of soil, peat and air particulate humic and humic-like substances (HSs), as well as lignin, in order to demonstrate the usefulness of the approach for their characterization even at(More)
