To probe the kinetic performance of microsolvated α-nucleophile, the G2(+)M calculations were carried out for the gas-phase S(N)2 reactions of monohydrated and dihydrated α-oxy-nucleophiles XO(-)(H2O)(n = 1,2) (X = HO, CH3O, F, Cl, Br), and α-sulfur-nucleophile, HSS(-)(H2O)(n = 1,2), toward CH3Cl. We compared the reactivities of hydrated α-nucleophiles to(More)
In order to explore the existence of α-effect in gas-phase S(N)2@N reactions, and to compare its similarity and difference with its counterpart in S(N)2@C reactions, we have carried out a theoretical study on the reactivity of six α-oxy-Nus (FO(-), ClO(-), BrO(-), HOO(-), HSO(-), H2NO(-)) in the S(N)2 reactions toward NR2Cl (R = H, Me) and RCl (R = Me,(More)
The enhanced reactivity exhibited by six pseudo-alpha-bases, RC[triple bond]CZ(-) (R = H and Cl; Z = O, S, and Se) in gas-phase E2 reactions with ethyl chloride was examined at the G2(+) level. It is found that anomalous reactivity is observed despite the fact that these chalcogen bases do not possess adjacent lone-pair electrons. The influence of the(More)
The reactivity order of 12 anions toward ethyl chloride has been investigated by using the G2(+) method, and the competitive E2 and SN2 reactions are discussed and compared. The reactions studied are X(-) + CH3CH2Cl → HX + CH2═CH2 + Cl(-) and X(-) + CH3CH2Cl → CH3CH2X + Cl(-), with X = F, Cl, Br, HO, HS, HSe, NH2 PH2, AsH2, CH3, SiH3, and GeH3. Our results(More)
In this Article, we present a series of cyclometalated iridium(III) polypyridine complexes of the formula [Ir(N^C)2(N^N)](PF6) that showed dual emission under ambient conditions. The structures of the cyclometalating and diimine ligands were changed systematically to investigate the effects of the substituents on the dual-emission properties of the(More)
The water-mediated neutral hydrolysis mechanism of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) has been re-examined using the hybrid supramolecule/continuum models with n = 2-8 explicit water cluster at the level of MP2(fc)(CPCM)/6-311++G(d,p)//MP2(fc)(CPCM)/6-31+G(d). Present calculations indicate that the potential energy surface in water solution is different from the one in(More)
This paper presents an efficient detection and classification algorithm of multiple-class myocardial infarction (MI) (i.e., prior and acute), which is one of mortality diseases for humans. However, feature extraction is one of the challenges in MI classification as the extracted features may not be optimized for class separation. To this end, we propose a(More)
The detailed reaction pathways for the hydration of ketenimine by water and water clusters containing up to five explicit water molecules (CH(2) =C=NH + (n + 1)H(2)O --> CH(3)CONH(2) + nH(2)O, n = 0-4) in the gas phase have been investigated by the MP2 method in conjunction with the 6-31+G* and 6-311++G** basis sets, and the effects of bulk solvent are(More)
We have made an extensive theoretical exploration of gas-phase N-alkylamino cation affinities (NAAMCA), including amino cation affinities (AMCA) and N-dimethylamino cation affinities (NDMAMCA), of neutral main-group element hydrides of groups 15-17 and periods 2-4 in the periodic table by using the G2(+)M method. Some similarities and differences are found(More)
