Thermal behaviour and electrochemical properties of bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide and dodecatungstosilicate viologen dimers.
Summary of "Thermal behaviour and electrochemical properties of bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide and dodecatungstosilicate viologen dimers."
We report the synthesis and characterization of dimeric viologen salts (1',1''-(alkane-1,n-diyl)bis(1-ethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium) with n = 4-10) with bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide (bistriflimide, Tf(2)N(-)) as a counteranion. For n = 4, 5 and 6, and for the nonylviologen cation (1,1'-dinonyl-4,4'-bipyridinium) we also prepared salts with the totally inorganic dodecatungstosilicate anion, SiW(12)O(40)(4-), featuring a poly-charged surface and nanosized dimensions. The materials have been characterized by means of calorimetric techniques, X-ray diffraction and solid state NMR and a comparison is made with analogous monomeric viologen salts exhibiting smectic mesophases. A strong odd-even effect is observed in the melting points and in the thermal behaviour of the bistriflimide dimeric systems, similar to what was reported for dipolar calamitic liquid crystal dimers, although the studied viologen dimers are not mesomorphic. By increasing the size of the counteranion we have observed a destabilization of the crystal phases and of the mesophases in favour of a glassy amorphous state. Implications on the design of novel ionic liquid crystals are discussed. The electrochemical behaviour in solution has been investigated by cyclic voltammetry measurements: interestingly, the odd-even effect is clearly visible also in the redox potentials. The spin-pairing of the viologen radical cations formed at each end of the dimer is responsible for the observed redox trend. Insights on the structure of the spin-paired dimer have been obtained by DFT calculations.

Enzymes that catalyze the joining of either ammonia or an amide with another molecule, in which the linkage is in the form of a carbon-nitrogen bond. EC 6.3.1.
The octapeptide amide of bovine angiotensin II used to increase blood pressure by vasoconstriction.
An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.
Membrane transporters that co-transport two or more dissimilar molecules in the opposite direction across a membrane. Usually the transport of one ion or molecule is against its electrochemical gradient and is "powered" by the movement of another ion or molecule with its electrochemical gradient.
