Solvation Free Energy of Self-Assembled Complexes: Using Molecular Dynamics to Understand the Separation of ssDNA-Wrapped Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes.

J Phys Chem C Nanomater Interfaces 2020 ;124

Materials Science and Engineering Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Molecular dynamics simulations were used to characterize the self-assembly of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) on a (6,5) single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) in aqueous solution for the purpose of gaining an improved theoretical understanding of separation strategies for SWCNTs using ssDNA as a dispersant. Four separate ssDNA sequences, ((TAT), TTA(TAT)ATT, C, (GTC)GT), at various levels of loading, were chosen for study based on published experimental work showing selective extraction of particular SWCNT species based on the ssDNA dispersant sequence. We develop a unique workflow based on free energy perturbation (FEP) and use this to determine the relative solubility of these complexes due to the adsorption of the ssDNA on the SWCNT surface, and hence, rank the favorability of separations observed during experiments.

Sterics and Hydrogen Bonding Control Stereochemistry and Self-Sorting in BINOL-Based Assemblies.

J Am Chem Soc 2021 Jun 14;143(24):9009-9015. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 1EW, United Kingdom.

Here we demonstrate how the hydrogen-bonding ability of a BINOL-based dialdehyde subcomponent dictated the stereochemical outcome of its subsequent self-assembly into one diastereomeric helicate form when bearing free hydroxy groups, and another in the case of its methylated congener. The presence of methyl groups also altered the self-sorting behavior when mixed with another, short linear dialdehyde subcomponent, switching the outcome of the system from narcissistic to integrative self-sorting. In all cases, the axial chirality of the BINOL building block also dictated helicate metal center handedness during stereospecific self-assembly. Read More

Crystallographic characterization of the metal-organic framework Fe(bdp) upon reductive cation insertion.

Chem Sci 2020 Aug 10;11(34):9173-9180. Epub 2020 Aug 10.

Department of Chemistry, University of California Berkeley California 94720 USA

Precisely locating extra-framework cations in anionic metal-organic framework compounds remains a long-standing, yet crucial, challenge for elucidating structure-performance relationships in functional materials. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction is one of the most powerful approaches for this task, but single crystals of frameworks often degrade when subjected to post-synthetic metalation or reduction. Here, we demonstrate the growth of sizable single crystals of the robust metal-organic framework Fe(bdp) (bdp = benzene-1,4-dipyrazolate) and employ single-crystal-to-single-crystal chemical reductions to access the solvated framework materials AFe(bdp)·THF (A = Li, Na, K).

Photo-triggered hydrogen atom transfer from an iridium hydride complex to unactivated olefins.

Chem Sci 2020 Aug 6;11(32):8582-8594. Epub 2020 Aug 6.

Department of Chemistry, University of Basel St. Johanns-Ring 19 4056 Basel Switzerland

Many photoactive metal complexes can act as electron donors or acceptors upon photoexcitation, but hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) reactivity is rare. We discovered that a typical representative of a widely used class of iridium hydride complexes acts as an H-atom donor to unactivated olefins upon irradiation at 470 nm in the presence of tertiary alkyl amines as sacrificial electron and proton sources. The catalytic hydrogenation of simple olefins served as a test ground to establish this new photo-reactivity of iridium hydrides. Read More
