Summary of "Vibrational Signatures of Chirality Recognition Between alpha-Pinene and Alcohols for Theory Benchmarking."

Chirality recognition between largely rigid molecules can be applied as a benchmark for the description of intermolecular forces by theoretical methods because one constituent is merely mirrored so that other deficits of the methods, such as neglect of anharmonicity, should mostly cancel. To test this approach, mixed OH···pi bridged dimers between the enantiomers of the bicyclic monoterpene alpha-pinene and the chiral secondary alcohols borneol, alpha-fenchol, isopinocampheol and 1-phenylethanol were formed in a supersonic jet and probed by linear FTIR spectroscopy. With borneol and alpha-fenchol, pronounced shifts in the hydroxyl stretching frequencies upon exchange of the handedness are observed. From three tested density functionals only B3LYP-D3(BJ) is able to predict these diastereomeric shifts in a satisfactory manner, while M06-2X and omegaB97X-D fall short.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Alkyl compounds containing a hydroxyl group. They are classified according to relation of the carbon atom: primary alcohols, R-CH2OH; secondary alcohols, R2-CHOH; tertiary alcohols, R3-COH. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

An approximately 80 amino acid RNA binding motif that consists of four anti-parallel surface beta sheets and two alpha helices arranged in a beta-alpha-beta-beta-alpha-beta configuration. One of the surface beta sheets interacts with two or three specific RNA bases. Interactions between additional sequences and the RNA, as well as within the RNA recognition motif increase the affinity and specificity of the protein-RNA interaction.

Usually high-molecular-weight, straight-chain primary alcohols, but can also range from as few as 4 carbons, derived from natural fats and oils, including lauryl, stearyl, oleyl, and linoleyl alcohols. They are used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, plastics, and lube oils and in textile manufacture. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)

Alcohols derived from the aryl radical (C6H5CH2-) and defined by C6H5CHOH. The concept includes derivatives with any substituents on the benzene ring.

Polyhydric alcohols having no more than one hydroxy group attached to each carbon atom. They are formed by the reduction of the carbonyl group of a sugar to a hydroxyl group.(From Dorland, 28th ed)
