          Abstract

          Thiols with different alkyl chain length and containing COOH terminal group were self-assembled on gold electrodes. The electron transfer of Fe(CN)6(3-/4-) couple to the electrode was studied at different pH by means cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Changes in solution pH resulted in the charge variation of the self-assembled monolayer (SAM) terminal group and, consequently, the electrostatic interaction of SAM with the electroactive species in the solution.

          Tióis de cadeias carbônicas com tamanhos diferentes e contendo grupo terminal COOH foram usados para formar monocamadas auto-organizadas sobre a superfície de eletrodos de ouro. A transferência de elétrons do par Fe(CN)6(3-/4-) para o eletrodo foi estudada em diferentes pH usando-se as técnicas de voltametria cíclica (CV) e de espectroscopia de impedância eletroquímica (EIS). Mudanças no pH da solução resultaram em variações na carga do grupo terminal das monocamadas auto-organizadas e, conseqüentemente, em alterações na interação eletrostática da SAM com as espécies eletroativas em solução.

          General Allylic C–H Alkylation with Tertiary Nucleophiles

          A general method for intermolecular allylic C–H alkylation of terminal olefins with tertiary nucleophiles has been accomplished employing palladium(II)/bis(sulfoxide) catalysis. Allylic C–H alkylation furnishes products in good yields (avg. 64%) with excellent regio- and stereoselectivity (>20:1 linear:branched, >20:1 E:Z). For the first time, the olefin scope encompasses unactivated aliphatic olefins as well as activated aromatic/heteroaromatic olefins and 1,4-dienes. The ease of appending allyl moieties onto complex scaffolds is leveraged to enable this mild and selective allylic C–H alkylation to rapidly diversify phenolic natural products. The tertiary nucleophile scope is broad and includes latent functionality for further elaboration (e.g., aliphatic alcohols, α,β-unsaturated esters). The opportunities to effect synthetic streamlining with such general C–H reactivity are illustrated in an allylic C–H alkylation/Diels–Alder reaction cascade: a reactive diene is generated via intermolecular allylic C–H alkylation and approximated to a dienophile contained within the tertiary nucleophile to furnish a common tricyclic core found in the class I galbulimima alkaloids.

            Defects in Graphene-Based Twisted Nanoribbons: Structural, Electronic and Optical Properties

            We present some computational simulations of graphene-based nanoribbons with a number of half-twists varying from 0 to 4 and two types of defects obtained by removing a single carbon atom from two different sites. Optimized geometries are found by using a mix of classical-quantum semiempirical computations. According with the simulations results, the local curvature of the nanoribbons increases at the defect sites, specially for a higher number of half-twists. The HOMO-LUMO energy gap of the nanostructures has significant variation when the number of half-twists increases for the defective nanoribbons. At the quantum semiempirical level, the first optically active transitions and oscillator strengths are calculated using the full configuration interaction (CI) framework, and the optical absorption in the UV/Visible range (electronic transitions) and in the infrared (vibrational transitions) are achieved. Distinct nanoribbons show unique spectral signatures in the UV/Visible range, with the first absorption peaks in wavelengths ranging from the orange to the violet. Strong absorption is observed in the ultraviolet region, although differences in their infrared spectra are hardly discernible.
