A set of new heteroquinone derivatives bearing two methoxycarbonylmethylthio groups on the benzoquinone ring were synthesized and evaluated for CDC25B phosphatase inhibitory activity. All compounds inhibited the enzyme with IC50 values in the micromolar range regardless of the size and heteroatoms constituting the heterocycle fused to the quinone ring. Moreover, these quinonoid-based compounds showed moderate antiproliferative activity toward two cancer cell lines (HeLa and MiaPaca-2). These results provide additional data for CDC25 inhibition by quinone-type derivatives and highlight the importance of substituents on the quinonic moiety.

The electrochemical behaviour of the reagent 4-chloro-N-8-quinolinylbenzenesulfonamide has been studied by sampled direct current and differential pulse polarography as well as by cyclic voltamperometry techniques. Three reduction waves are obtained and the reversibility and nature of the electrodic processes are discussed. The first and third reduction waves have been explained through chemical reactions and adsorption processes involving the interaction with mercury as electrodic material, whereas the second wave is attributed to the reduction process of the reagent itself. Acidity constant values of the compound in 0.1 M KCl / 25 % methanol medium through polarographic measurements are also given. The influence of the addition of copper to the hydroalcoholic solution in the electrochemical reduction of the reagent is also described.

A new atomic electronegativity scale is proposed by using the essence of electronegativity definitions of Gordy and Mulliken. The new computed atomic electronegativity data is found to satisfy all the sine qua non of a reasonable scale of atomic electronegativity. The electronegativity data is used to compute some useful descriptors of chemical reactivity. Comparative studies reveal that the new approach to derive the Gordy’s scale of electronegativity is a successful venture.

Novel 4(3H)-quinazolinone derivatives with biologically active moieties were synthesized. Reactions of 2-cyano-N-(6-iodo-2-methyl-4-oxoquinazolin-3(4H)-yl) acetamide with carbon disulfide, isothiocyanates followed by cycloalkylation afforded acrylamide, 1,3-dithiazole, 1,3-dithiane, thiazole and pyrazole derivatives. The 2-pyridone derivatives were obtained via reaction of cyanoacetamide with some acetylacetone or arylidenes. Cyclocondensation reaction of cyanoacetamide with o-hydroxy aldehydes furnished chromene derivatives. Screening for some selected compounds was carried for their potential antitumor and antifungal activities. 2-Cyano-N-(6-iodo-2-methyl-4-oxoquinazolin-3(4H)-yl)-2-(4-methyl-3-phenyl-thiazol-2(3H)ylidene)-acetamide with 3-side chain incorporated with substituted thiazole moiety was found to be of high to moderate activity towards cells. Also, the latter product showed high activity against Aspergillus ochraceus Wilhelm with inhibition zone (18 mm) compared with (20 mm) Nystatin inhibition zone.

In order to screen dye decolorization by Trametes hirsuta, Trametes gibbosa and new fungus Trichaptum biforme, Methylene Blue (MB), Methyl Green (MG) and Reactive Black 5 (RB5) were studied in Broth culture at concentrations of 25, 50 and 70 ppm. Decolorization of these three kind dyes by T. hirsuta decreased by increasing of concentration. Decolorization of RB5 by T. hirsuta was examined in two different medium contains of Mn2+ or veratryl alcohol (VA), as activators. At the presence of laccase activator (VA), RB5 was decolorized 91% at concentration of 70 ppm, and in the medium contains of MnP activator (Mn2+), dye was decolorized less than 50% at same concentration. Decolorization of RB5 by T. hirsuta was more than decolorization of dye at the presence of MnP activator (Mn2+). T. gibbosa decolorized MB, MG and RB5 more than 80% in the presence of MnP activator. Decolorization of the three kind dyes by T. gibbosa, was independent of concentration. T. gibbosa decolorized different dyes during 20 days and T. hirsuta did it during 32 days, this is due higher potential of decolorization of synthetic dyes for T. gibbosa than T. hirsuta. Decolorization of MB by new fungus T. biforme was studied in two medium contains of MnP activator and laccase activator. Rate of decolorization in the presence of MnP activator was more than decolorization in the presence of laccase activator. Decolorization of MB by new fungus T. biforme was higher than decolorization of MB by two other fungi.

The molecular structure and electronic spectra of eleven dihydropyridones were theoretically studied utilizing density functional (DFT) method. The structures were optimized using B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level of theory. The conformations of the molecules were analyzed with respect to substituents. The central six-membered dihydropyridone ring adopted a half-chair conformation. The geometries did not differ significantly except for conformations of the phenyl or styryl substituents. The only substituents that affected the structure of the central ring are those which have conjugation overlap with the -C=C-C=O system within the ring. Dipole moments and natural charges were calculated and it was found that in most cases substitution leads to higher dipoles, and both methyl and phenyl substituents have the same effect on the atomic charge distribution leading to decrease the atomic charge on the substitution site. Wiberg bond indices were also calculated and used to analyze the substitution effect on the electronic properties of the molecules. It is concluded that substitution on atoms that are not a part of the N-C=C-C=O system have practically no effect on both structural and electronic properties of the molecules. The electronic spectra were also calculated using the ZINDO method. The predicted spectra are in good agreement with experimental spectra concerning the long wavelength absorption band. The electronic transitions were either pure HOMO to LUMO transitions or comprises components of HOMO to LUMO and other transitions like H-1 to L, H to L+2, H-1 to L+1, H-2 to L+1.

A novel oxime ligand has been synthesized by refluxing 3,3’-diaminobenzedine and phthalaldehyde monoxime. Copper (II), cobalt (II), nickel (II) and manganese (II) binuclear complexes of this ligand have been prepared and characterized by using elemental analysis, molar conductance studies, IR, UV, NMR, EPR and magnetic studies. The molar conductance measurements correspond to a non-electrolytic nature for all complexes which can be formulated as [M2(L)X4] (Where M = Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II) and Mn(II); X = Cl). The UV-visible spectra of all the complexes are well characterized by broad weak d-d band and a high intensity charge-transfer transition. Thermal studies supported the chemical formation of these complexes showed that they decomposed in three or four stages depending on the type of ligand. The far-IR spectrum confirms the presence of coordinate chloride ion in all the complexes as evidenced by one intense far IR bands around 310-330 cm−1. In electrochemical studies the resulting cyclic voltammogram consists of single quasi-reversible one electron transfer. The ligand and complexes have been screened for their antimicrobial activity against two Gram-positive bacteria, two Gram-negative bacteria and fungi. The binuclear metal complexes were found to possess potent antimicrobial, antifungal activity better than ligand alone.

Accuracy of Riazi-Whitson mathematical correlation for estimating the molecular diffusion coefficient in gaseous hydrocarbons has been improved, which decreases the absolute average deviation related to the experimental data using About 486 experimental data points that have been collected from latest existing researches. Likewise, re-optimizing, and statistical calculations have been done to synchronize data to avoid unexpected deviations. As shown in present work, deviation values for results of improved correlation from experimental data are less in compare to Riazi-Whitson original correlation. The absolute average deviations for obtained values of improved correlation are about 9.71%, which is about 14% for original mentioned correlation. The input parameters are molecular weight, critical properties, and acentric factors of components in the system; mixture molar density; low-pressure gas viscosity and actual viscosity. The last three properties are calculable by proper correlations in chemical handbooks.

The aquation of bromopentaamminecobalt(III) ion in the presence of ion-pairing malonate anion in mixed solvent media of water with tert-butanol (10%-50%) v/v have been investigated spectrophotometrically at different temperatures (30-60 oC). Nonlinear plots of Log (kip) ion-pair rate constants against the reciprocal of the dielectric constant D, Log of water concentration and Grunwald-Winstein Y values were found. The thermodynamic and extrathermodynamic analyses of the kinetic data have been discussed in terms of solvent effect on the ion-pair aquation reactions. The obtained isokinetic temperatures of these systems indicate the existence of compensation effect arising from solute-solvent interaction. The extrema found in the change of ∆Hip* and ∆Sip*with the mole fraction of the co-solvent can be attributed to the change of the physical properties of the solvent-water mixture with the solvent structure. Application of a free energy cycle is performed to compare between the stability of the initial and the transition state of the complex. However, small changes in ∆Gip*with the mole fraction of the co-solvent was found, indicating a compensating effects between ∆Hip* and ∆Sip*

The competitive metal ion transport of Ag(I), Co(II), Ni(II), Zn(II), Cu(II), Cd(II) and Mn(II) cations with dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) were studied and compared. The source phase contained equimolar concentration of the metal cation and the organic phase contained the ligand (DB18C6) in an organic solvent. The concentrations in the all transport experiments for the cations and ligand were 0.01 M and 1.0×10-3 M, respectively. The source phase solutions were buffered (acetic acid/sodium acetate) at pH 4-6. The transports of Cu(II), Ag(І) and Co(II) with DB18C6 are possible in the mixture, but the transport efficiency for Ag(І) ion is much better than the other cations. The presence of dichloromethane and 1,2 dichloroethane were optimized in the organic phase. The results show the transport efficiency depends to the types of thiourea and potassium thiocyanate ligands in the receiving phase. The results show that the presence of palmetic acid in the membrane phase improves the efficiency of the transport for Ag(І) cation.

A system of Ce(SO4)2.4H2O, Zn(CH3COO)2.2H2O and phosphoric acid was studied by the chemical reaction between the precursor materials. The cerium cations were replaced by zinc cations (x) in the range of x = 0.0-1.0. The obtained gels were dried and calcinated at 650 oC for 2 hrs. The effect of calcination on the produced phases was studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and infrared spectroscopy (IR). The thermal behaviors of only the dried samples were investigated employing differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The transmission electron microscope (TEM) was used to investigate the morphology, crystallinity and particle size of both dried and calcined samples. The TEM results indicated that the crystallinity was improved by increasing the zinc contents. The importance of Zn, Ce phosphates return to their using as UV-shielding agents.

This article describes a simple, quick and inexpensive method for determination of pesticides in fruits and vegetables. The method, known as the quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe (QuEChERS) method for pesticide residues, involves the extraction and simultaneous liquid-liquid partitioning formed by adding anhydrous magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) plus sodium acetate (NaAc) followed by a simple cleanup step known as dispersive solid-phase extraction (dSPE). The extracts were analyzed by three-dimensional gas chromatography GC/MSD/µ-ECD/FPD in trace ion mode and liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS). Method sensitivity, linearity, repeatability and reproducibility, accuracy, matrix effects, and overall uncertainties have been studied for method validation according to the international norm ISO/IEC: 17025:2005 for both techniques. Identification, quantification and reporting with Total and Extracted ion chromatograms, µECD and DFPD were facilitated to a great extent by Deconvolution Reporting Software (DRS) for GC and Mass hunter software for LC. For all compounds LODs were 0.001 to 0.01 mg/kg and LOQs were 0.005 to 0.020 mg/kg. Correlation coefficients of the calibration curves were >0.991.To validate the effects of matrices, repeatability, reproducibility, recovery and overall uncertainty were calculated for twenty-four matrices at 0.020, 0.050 and 0.500 mg/kg. Recovery ranged between 75-107 % with RSD <17 % for repeatability and intermediate precision and UM of ± 13-22 %.
