Summary of "Hybrid Uranyl-Phosphonate Coordination Nanocage."

We report herein a general synthetic approach for designing uranyl coordination cages. Compounds and are constructed through a temperature-dependent and solvent-driven self-assembly. In both cases, the synthetic strategy involves in situ phosphonate ligand condensation into a flexible pyrophosphonate ligand. This pyrophosphonate ligand formation is essential for the introduction of curvature into these compounds. In the presence of PF ions that are derived from hydrofluoric acid, a macrocyclic uranyl-phosphonate discrete compound, , whose cavity contains PF ions, hydronium ions, and water molecules, is obtained. When Cs cations are used in the synthesis, a remarkable uranyl coordination nanocage, , resulted. The macrocycle () is approximately 10.9 × 10.9 Å in diameter while the nanocage () is approximately 15.0 × 11.3 Å in diameter, as measured from the outer oxygen atoms of the uranyl centers. Both compounds are constructed from a UO moiety, coordinated by an additional four oxygen atoms from the phosphonate group to form pentagonal bipyramidal geometry. All the compounds fluoresce at room temperature, showing characteristic vibronically coupled charge-transfer based emission.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.

Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.

Organic chemicals that form two or more coordination links with an iron ion. Once coordination has occurred, the complex formed is called a chelate. The iron-binding porphyrin group of hemoglobin is an example of a metal chelate found in biological systems.
