Pseudocontact shifts and paramagnetic susceptibility in semiempirical and quantum chemistry theories.

Summary of "Pseudocontact shifts and paramagnetic susceptibility in semiempirical and quantum chemistry theories."

Pseudocontact shifts are traditionally described as a function of the anisotropy of the paramagnetic susceptibility tensor, according to the semiempirical theory mainly developed by Kurland and McGarvey [J. Magn. Reson. 2, 286-301 (1970)]. The paramagnetic susceptibility tensor is required to be symmetric. Applying point-dipole approximation to the quantum chemistry theory of hyperfine shift, pseudocontact shifts are found to scale with a non-symmetric tensor that differs by a factor g/g from the paramagnetic susceptibility tensor derived within the semiempirical framework. We analyze the foundations of the Kurland-McGarvey pseudocontact shift expression and recall that it is inherently based on the Russell-Saunders (LS) coupling approximation for the spin-orbit coupling. We show that the difference between the semiempirical and quantum chemistry pseudocontact shift expressions arises directly from the different treatment of the orbital contribution to the hyperfine coupling.

They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.

Physiological or psychological effects of periods of work which may be fixed or flexible such as flexitime, work shifts, and rotating shifts.

Translocation of body fluids from one compartment to another, such as from the vascular to the interstitial compartments. Fluid shifts are associated with profound changes in vascular permeability and WATER-ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE. The shift can also be from the lower body to the upper body as in conditions of weightlessness.
