Summary of "Tetravalent Oxygen and Sulphur Centres Mediated by Carborane Superacid - Theoretical Analysis."

The tetravalent oxygen or sulphur centres, especially in H4O2+ and H4S2+dications, were analysed experimentally and theoretically in various studies. Herein we discuss stabilities of such centres in related H(CH3)3O2+ and H(CH3)3S2+ dications mediated by carborane superacid. The ωB97X-D/6-311++G(d,p) calculations were performed for a gas phase and for different solvents characterized by a wide range of dielectric constants for complexes of these dications with the conjugated base of H(CHB11F11) carborane superacid, CHB11F11-. These complexes are linked by hydrogen bonds. The Quantum Theory of ´Atoms in Molecules´ (QTAIM) approach is applied to characterize these interactions. DFT results show that tetravalent oxygen and sulphur structures are additionally stabilized by polar solvents.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of systems, processes, or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)

Compounds similar to hydrocarbons in which a tetravalent silicon atom replaces the carbon atom. They are very reactive, ignite in air, and form useful derivatives.

Stable oxygen atoms that have the same atomic number as the element oxygen, but differ in atomic weight. O-17 and 18 are stable oxygen isotopes.

Molecules or ions formed by the incomplete one-electron reduction of oxygen. These reactive oxygen intermediates include SINGLET OXYGEN; SUPEROXIDES; PEROXIDES; HYDROXYL RADICAL; and HYPOCHLOROUS ACID. They contribute to the microbicidal activity of PHAGOCYTES, regulation of signal transduction and gene expression, and the oxidative damage to NUCLEIC ACIDS; PROTEINS; and LIPIDS.
