  • Theoretical study (ab initio and DFT methods) on acidic dissociation
           constant of xylenol orange in aqueous solution

    • Authors: F. Kiani, F. Ghadernezhad, F. Koohyar, S. A. Shahidi
      Abstract: Analytical measurement of materials requires exact knowledge of their acid dissociation constant (pKa) values. In recent years, quantum mechanical calculations have been extensively used to study of acidities in the aqueous solutions and the results were compared with the experimental values. In this study, a theoretical study was carried out on xylenol orange (in water solution) by ab initio method. We calculated the pKa values of xylenol orange in water, using high-level ab initio (PM3), DFT (HF, B3LYP/6-31+G(d)) and SCRF methods. The experimental determination of these values (pKa,s) is a challenge because xylenol orange has a low solubility in water. We considered several ionization reactions and equilibriums in water that constitute the indispensable theoretical basis to calculate the pKa values of xylenol orange. The results show that the calculated pKa values have a comparable agreement with the experimentally determined pKa values. Therefore, this method can be used to predict such properties for indicators, drugs and other important molecules.               KEY WORDS: Ab initio, DFT method, Ionization constant, Xylenol orange, Atomic charge Bull.

  • The QuEChERS analytical method combined with low density solvent based
           dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction for quantitative extraction of
           multiclass pesticide residues in cereals

    • Authors: T. Bedassa, A. Gure, N. Megersa
      Abstract: In this study, a combination QuEChERS and low density solvent based DLLME was developed for extraction and preconcentration of five multiclass pesticide residues including atrazine, ametryn, terbutryn, carbaryl and chlorothalonil, from selected cereals: Teff, barley and maize samples. Liquid chromatography with variable wavelength detector (VWD) was used for quantitative determination of the pesticides. Various experimental parameters affecting the extraction and the preconcentration efficiencies were optimized. Calibration curves constructed using Teff samples were linear over wide ranges, 7.1-200 μg kg-1 with R2 ≥ 0.990. LODs of the method were ≤ 8.9 μg kg-1, below the MRLs of EU for maize and barley. The RSDs were in the range of 2.3–9.5%. The method has also been applied to different cereal samples and satisfactory average recoveries ranging 69.0–117% were obtained for the spiked cereal samples at two concentration levels. Therefore, the developed method can be successfully utilized as a simple alternative for the analysis of multiclass pesticide residues in cereals and other related samples. KEY WORDS: QuEChERS method, Low density solvent based DLLME, Multiclass pesticide residues, Cereal samples, HPLC-VWD, Quantitative extraction Bull.

  • Assessment of essential and non-essential metals in Ethiopian traditional
           fermented alcoholic beverages

    • Authors: A. Debebe, B. S. Chandravanshi, M. R. Abshiro
      Abstract: Evaluation of the levels of essential and non-essential metal concentrations in Ethiopian traditional fermented alcoholic beverages (Tella, Tej, Birz, Korefe, Keribo and Borde) was conducted using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) after HNO3/H2O2 digestion process. A total of 10 bulk samples were collected randomly from vending houses at five different sub-cities of Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia (Lideta-Kolfe, Bole-Kirkose, Yeka-Gullele, Arada-Addis Ketema and Akaki-Kaliti-Lafto) and from five nearby towns (Sebeta, Dukem, Sululta, Sendafa, and Burayu) of Oromia Regional State. The considered metals include: Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb, Co and Mn to ascertain their levels. With 88–96% recovery Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb and Mn were detected at varying concentrations in the beverages, while Co, Ni and Cr were below detection limits. All the beverages were rich in Ca, Mg and Zn. Among the trace metals found Zn was the first. The levels of the trace metals were generally low, and within statutory safe limits set by World Health Organization (WHO). Mineral concentrations were found to be significantly different among the beverages studied (p < 0.05). The levels of metals in the Ethiopian fermented beverages were found comparable with the reported ones. KEY WORDS: Ethiopian beverages, Traditional beverages, Fermented beverages, Essential elements, Non-essential elements Bull.

           Cu2+ ion in aqueous solution

    • Authors: G. T. Tigineh, L. K.Liu
      Abstract: In this paper the chemical sensing ability of aromatic salicylideneaniline Schiff-base (ASASB), synthesized solvent-free mechanochemically and characterized, was assessed via UV-Vis spectroscopic method together with naked-eye detection. Metal ions in aqueous medium from s, p and d-block elements were investigated based on chelation-induced colorimetric chemosensing. The result revealed that ASASB can be used as a new colorimetric chemosensor for selective detection of Cu2+ ion in aqueous solution.               KEY WORDS: Metal ion, Schiff-base, Colorimetric chemosensor, Mechanochemistry Bull.

  • Direct acetylation of sunflower oil in the presence of boron trioxide
           catalyst and the adduct usage as the base stock and lubricant additive

    • Authors: J. Ashrafi, A. Semnani, H. S. Langeroodi, M. Shirani
      Abstract: Lubrication properties of sunflower oil have been modified by epoxidation in the first step and acetylation of the obtained epoxide in the second step. Epoxidation has been followed in dichloromethane solution in the presence of hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid as oxidizing agent and sulfuric acid as catalyst. The reaction has been monitored and optimized by measurement of iodine value, epoxy content, and recording the FTIR spectrum at different experimental conditions. Acetylation has been performed by enduring the optimized conditions of epoxidation reaction, in the presence of boron trioxide as catalyst and at elevated temperature. The recent reaction has been monitored and optimized by measurement of hydroxyl value, epoxy content, and recording the FTIR spectrum at different experimental conditions. The final product of both,epoxidation and acetylation reactions has been confirmed by FTIR and NMR data. Relative to sunflower oil, pour point and oxidation stability of the modified oil has considerably been improved. The modified oil has successfully been employed in the formulation of industrial gear oil. The investigation on the possibility of the additive application of the modified oil, as well as its miscibility with additives was considered.     KEY WORDS: Sunflower oil, Lubrication, Epoxidation, Acetylation, Borontrioxide, Gear oil blending, Polyalphaolephin-100, Polyisobutene Bull.

  • Adsorption of acid dye onto activated Algerian clay

    • Authors: D. Bendaho, T. A. Driss, D. Bassou
      Abstract: In this work, activated clay from Algeria was used as adsorbent for the removal of methyl orange (MO) from aqueous solution, for this, the effects of several parameters such as contact time, adsorbent dose, pH value of aqueous solution and temperature on the adsorption of MO were also studied. The results showed that nearly 30 min of contact time are found to be sufficient for the adsorption to reach equilibrium and the adsorption was favourable at lower pH. The acid dye concentration is measured with UV-visible spectrophotometer at a wavelength of 464 nm. The adsorption capacity of MO found to be 32.57 mg/g. The Pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order models were used to fit the experimental data. The adsorption kinetic process was found to follow a pseudo second order model.The Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms models were used to describe adsorption data, the results indicates that Langmuir and Freundlich models provide better correlation of the experimental data. The negative values of ΔG° at different temperatures show that the adsorption process is spontaneous. The values of ΔH and ΔS were found to be 1.04 kJ/mol and 3.35 J/mol.K, respectively. The positive value of ΔH confirms that the adsorption is endothermic and the adsorption process is chemical nature.               KEY WORDS: Dye, Adsorption, Cay, Adsorption kinetics, Adsorption isotherms Bull.

  • FT-IR, NMR spectroscopic and quantum mechanical investigations of two
           ferrocene derivatives

    • Authors: Ö. Alver, C. Parlak
      Abstract: New ferrocene derivatives as N-(3-piperidin-1-ylpropyl)ferrocenamide (Fc-3ppa) and N-(pyridine-3-ylmethyl)ferrocenamide (Fc-3pica) and structural investigations were carried out with 1H, 13C, DEPT 45 or 135, HETCOR, COSY NMR and FT-IR spectroscopic techniques. Characterization of Fc-3ppa (FeC19H26N2O) and Fc-3pica (FeC17H16N2O) was also supported by density functional theory (DFT) used by B3LYP functional and 6-31G(d) or 6-311++G(d,p) basis sets. From the combination of all the results, it can be clearly seen that syntheses of Fc-3ppa and Fc-3pica have been successfully achieved. Theoretical values are successfully compared against experimental data and B3LYP method is able to provide satisfactory results for predicting NMR properties and vibrational frequencies of the synthesized ferrocene based systems.               KEY WORDS: Ferrocene derivatives, FT-IR, NMR, DFT, B3LYP Bull.

    • Authors: M. M. E. Shakdofa, A. N. Al-Hakimi, F. A. Elsaied, S. O. M. Alasbahi, A. M. A. Alkwlini
      Abstract: Novel azo-acetohydrazide complexes of Zn2+, Cu2+, Ni2+, Co2+, Mn2+, Fe3+, Ru3+, VO2+ and UO22+ with 2-hydroxy-5-((4-nitrophenyl)diazenyl)benzylidene)-2-(p-tolylamino)acetohydrazide have been prepared. All the compounds were analytically and spectroscopically characterized by various techniques. The data of molar conductance indicated the prepared complexes are nonelectrolyte in nature except complexes (10) and (11). The spectroscopic data point out that the behavior of ligand towards metal ions are neutral or monobasic bidentate, and dibasic tridentate ligand linked to the metal ions through oxygen atom of ketonic or enolic carbonyl group, azomethine nitrogen atom and/or deprotonated phenolic group forming either octahedral or tetragonally distorted octahedral geometry. X-ray powder diffraction analysis of complexes (2) and (3) indicate that the complexes are crystalline in nature and have monoclinic structures. The microbicides activities of all compounds evaluated by well diffusion method versus Escherichia coli and Aspergillus niger at different concentration. The bioactivities data elucidated that as the concentration of the tested solutions increases the activities increase.               KEY WORDS: Azo-acetohydrazide, Azo-hydrazone, Metal complexes, Bioactivity, X-ray diffraction analysis Bull.

    • Authors: M. Agrawal, S. Jain, S. Sharma, J. Dwivedi, D. Kishore
      Abstract: Extremely simple protocols based on the reactivity of corresponding oxoketenedithioacetal (4), 2-(dimethylaminomethylene) ketone (5), β-oxoenolether (6) and α,β-unsaturated ketone (7) derivatives of 7-ethyl-3, 4-dihydroazepino[3,2-b]carbazol-2,5(1H,7H)-dione (3) have been developed to provide an easy access to their pyrimido annulated analogues (8-15) of medicinal interest. The key compound 3 from which, the synthesis proceeded has been realized in two steps from the commercial 3-amino-9-ethyl carbazole (1) on its reaction in the first step with ethyl succinyl chloride followed by cyclocondensation of the resulting ester 2 with PPA. The selected synthesized compounds were screened for in-vivo analgesic activity using acetic acid induced writhing model in mice. Among them, compound 13was found to be most active and found comparable to standard aspirin.               KEY WORDS: 3-Amino-9-ethyl carbazole, Oxoketnedithioacetal, Dimethyl formamide dimethyl acetal,          2-(Dimethylaminomethylene)ketone, Oxoenolether, Chalcone Bull.

  • Analysis of the husk and kernel of the seeds of Moringa stenopetala

    • Authors: Y. Melaku, N. Arnold, J. Schmidt, E. Dagne
      Abstract: The ethanol extract of the kernel of the endemic plant Moringa stenopetala after silica gel column chromatography led to the isolation of 4-(α-L-rhamnopyranosyloxy)benzyl glucosinolate (1) and sucrose. The oil obtained by Soxhlet extraction with petrol was trans-esterified with BF3-MeOH and analyzed by GC-MS. The results showed the presence of diverse fatty acids namely palmitic (11%), palmitoleic (1.2%), stearic (11%), oleic (63%), linoleic (1.2%), arachidic (6%) and the rare behenic acids (6%). The white glossy seed husk which comprises 25% of the whole seed yielded two compounds namely 4-(σ-L-rhamnosyloxy)benzyl alcohol (2) and allantoin (3). To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of compound 2 as a natural product.

  • Effect of biocides and anionic homopolymeric inhibitors on the
           precipitation behavior of calcium fluoride

    • Authors: A. Ur Rehman, A. Khan, M. Humayun, G. Bibi, K. Shi, F. Raziq
      Abstract: This paper describes the effect of biocides and of the anionic homopolymeric inhibitors on the precipitation behavior of calcium fluoride (CaF2).The efficiency of inhibitors in the presence and absence of biocides was calculated using the half-life (t1/2) approach, where 50% of the concentration has been precipitated. Conductometric and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis have been performed for the calcium fluoride scale minerals using three polymeric inhibitors and three biocides, which are commonly used in industrial processes. The main aim of the study was to investigate the role of anionic homopolymerspoly(acrylic acid) PAA, and of the oxidizing and non-oxidizing biocides such as; sodium hypochlorite, gluteraldehyde, tris(hydroxymethyl) nitromethane). It was found that addition of low concentration (1-10 mg/L) of the polymers (K-752, K-732 and K-702) have great inhibitory effect on the precipitation of calcium fluoride (CaF2). Their inhibition efficiency was in the order, K-752 > K-732 > K-702. The observed behaviour can be attributed to the effect of molecular weight of the polymer. The polymer having higher molecular weight shows weaker inhibiting ability. However, the oxidizing and non-oxidizing biocides have no appreciable effect on their performance and hence on the overall inhibition process.               KEY WORDS: Calcium fluoride, Precipitation, Inhibition, Homopolymeric inhibitors, Biocides Bull.

  • A rational synthesis of a novel imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline
           templated Schiff base: Characterization, photoluminescence and DFT/TD-DFT

    • Authors: S. Karslıoğlu, S. Demir, H. Yılmaz, S. Gördük
      Abstract: A new imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (imp) derivative imidazo-N5,N6-bis((4-(1H-imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline-2-yl)phenyl)methylene)-1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-diamine (impap) was synthesized in five steps starting from bare phenanthroline (phen) precursors. The novel compound was fully characterized by 1H-NMR, IR, elemental analysis and electrospray ionization mass spectroscopy (ESI-MS) techniques. Solid state emission spectrum of impap showed two distinct strong emission maxima with large Stokes shifts. The ground state gas phase geometry of impap was predicted by DFT calculations. Excited state properties of the molecule were examined through TD-DFT calculations conducted at the optimized geometry. Responsible transitions for the strong fluorescence of impap were assigned to single component charge transfer transitions with large oscillator strengths based on the ground state calculated molecular orbital contributions.               KEY WORDS: Phenanthroline, TD-DFT, Photoluminescence, Stokes shift, 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione, Imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline Bull.

  • Radical scavenging activity of some natural tropolones by density
           functional theory

    • Authors: A. G. Al-Sehemi, A. Irfan, A. al Fahad, M. Alfaifi
      Abstract: The ground state neutral geometries of some natural tropolones, i.e. stipitatonic acid (AF1), stipitalide (AF2), stipitaldehydic acid (AF3) and methyl stipitate (AF4) have been optimized by using Density Functional Theory (DFT) at B3LYP/6-31G*, B3LYP/6-31G**, B3LYP/6-31+G* and B3LYP/6-31+G** levels of theory. The excited state geometries of AF1-AF4 were optimized by adopting the Time Dependent Density Functional Theory (TDDFT) at the same levels of theory. The frequencies and cation species of AF1-AF4 were also computed at all the above mentioned levels of theory. We shed light on the electro-optical and molecular properties, e.g. energy gaps, highest occupied molecular orbitals, lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals, absorption wavelengths, electronegativity (χ), hardness (η), electrophilicity (ω), softness (S), electrophilicity index (ωi) and the radical scavenging activity (RSA). Hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) and one-electron transfer mechanisms have been discussed to shed light on the RSA. The smallest ionization potential and bond dissociation energy of AF4 are revealing that this compound would have more RSA than those of other counterparts.               KEY WORDS: Density Functional Theory, Tropolones, Molecular properties, Bond dissociation enthalpy, Adiabatic ionization potential Bull.

  • Formation constants and thermodynamic parameters of bivalent Co, Ni, Cu
           and Zn complexes with Schiff base ligand: Experimental and DFT

    • Authors: S. Esmaielzadeh, G. Mashhadiagha
      Abstract: Formation constant (Kf) values of Schiff base ligand, L = methyl-2-{[1-methyl-2-(aceton)ethylidynenitrilo]ethyl}amino-1-cyclopentenedithiocarboxylate, with Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) ions has been determined spectrophotometrically for 1:1 complex formation at constant ionic strength 0.01 M (NaClO4), and at various temperatures in DMF solvent. Thermodynamic studies of the complexes have been carried out and their stability were found in the order CoL > CuL > NiL > ZnL. The enthalpy, entropy and Gibbs free energy changes of the complexation reaction have been evaluated from the temperature dependence of the formation constant. Our experimental results revealed that the complexation process is spontaneous, exothermic and entropically unfavorable. Also, B3LYP/(LANL2DZ and 6-311G٭٭) level density functional theory is applied on the structure and stability of Schiff base ligand and their complexes. HOMO-LUMO and binding energies were calculated to obtained stability of the complexes. The theoretical results are compared with experimental data.               KEY WORDS: Metal complexes, Schiff base ligand, Formation constant, DFT calculation Bull. Chem. Soc.
