Summary of "Assignment of the solid state spectra of the group VI hexacarbonyls by inelastic neutron scattering spectroscopy."

The solid state vibrational spectra of M(CO)6, (M = Cr, Mo, W) in the region below 800 cm-1 have been assigned by a combination of infrared, Raman and the first reported inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectra from homoleptic metal carbonyls. This region comprises of the lattice modes, the OC-M-CO deformations, the M-C[triple bond, length as m-dash]O bends and the M-C stretches. Three modes that are forbidden in both the infrared and Raman spectra of the parent Oh symmetry gas phase molecule occur in this region. The absence of selection rules for INS spectroscopy means that all three modes are clearly seen for the first time, all previous work has relied on overtone and combination modes. Periodic density functional theory calculations of the complete orthorhombic structure support the assignments.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A spectroscopic technique which uses the Mossbauer effect (inelastic scattering of gamma radiation resulting from interaction with heavy nuclei) to monitor the small variations in the interaction between an atomic nucleus and its environment. Such variations may be induced by changes in temperature, pressure, chemical state, molecular conformation, molecular interaction, or physical site. It is particularly useful for studies of structure-activity relationship in metalloproteins, mobility of heavy metals, and the state of whole tissue and cell membranes.

The quality or state of being wettable or the degree to which something can be wet. This is also the ability of any solid surface to be wetted when in contact with a liquid whose surface tension is reduced so that the liquid spreads over the surface of the solid.

A trace element with the atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 10.81. Boron-10, an isotope of boron, is used as a neutron absorber in BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY.

Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.

A group of methylazirinopyrroloindolediones obtained from certain Streptomyces strains. They are very toxic antibiotics used as ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS in some solid tumors. PORFIROMYCIN and MITOMYCIN are the most useful members of the group.
