    Cascading of Molecular Logic Gates for Advanced Functions: A Self-Reporting, Activatable Photosensitizer

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.Logical progress: Independent molecular logic gates have been designed and characterized. Then, the individual molecular logic gates were coerced to work together within a micelle. Information relay between the two logic gates was achieved through the intermediacy of singlet oxygen. Working together, these concatenated logic gates result in a self-reporting and activatable photosensitizer. GSH=glutathione

    Expanded Bodipy Dyes: Anion Sensing Using a Bodipy Analog with an Additional Difluoroboron Bridge

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.Oxalyl-tethered pyrroles can be doubly bridged with two difluoroboron chelating units to yield bright orange dyes. Interestingly, in polar organic solvents, the addition of fluoride and cyanide result in reversible detachment of the otherwise stable difluoroboron bridges, resulting in sharp changes in color. Thus, this novel compound behaves as a highly selective chromogenic sensor for fluoride and cyanide ions

    From Virtual to Physical: Integration of Chemical Logic Gates

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.Integration by parts: Advanced information processing at the molecular level requires integrated logic gates, which has to date been possible only virtually. Now, two independently working AND molecular logic gates are brought together by "click" chemistry to form integrated logic gates which respond exactly as predicted from such an integration scheme (see picture, EET=excitation energy transfer).

    Atropisomeric Dyes: Axial Chirality in Orthogonal BODIPY Oligomers

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.A dissymmetrically substituted orthogonal BODIPY dimer and an orthogonal BODIPY trimer exist as two stable conformers, which are in fact atropisomeric enantiomers. The racemic mixture can be separated by HPLC using a chiral stationary phase. These enantiomeric derivatives hold great potential as chiral agents in asymmetric synthesis, fluorogenic/chromogenic sensing, and biological applications

    ╬ö╬Ľ╬Ł ╬ö╬Ö╬Ĺ╬Ą╬Ö╬ś╬Ľ╬Ą╬Ĺ╬Ö ╬á╬Ľ╬í╬Ö╬Ť╬Ś╬Ę╬ŚHealthy Saanen goats (n=30) in periparturient period were used in the present study. Blood samples were collected 21, 14 and 7 days before parturition, at the time of birth and postpartum days 7, 14 and 21. Non-esterifiedfatty acids (NEFA), betahydroxy butyric acid (BHBA), Total protein (TP), albumin (ALB), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine (CREA) aspartate amino transferase (AST), gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH), glucose (GLU), cholesterol (CHOL), triglyceride (TG), calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P), and magnesium (Mg) levels were evaluated. During the study period, NEFA, SDH, CREA levels increased and CHOL and TG levels decreased at time of parturition. When the changes of parameters in prepartum and postpartum period were compared, the concentrations of NEFA, CHOL, GLU, TG, Ca were higher (p <0.001) in prepartum period;however BHBA, Mg, ALB, GGT, AST, TP, P, BUN, SDH and CREA concentrations were detected to be higher (p <0.001) in postpartum period. Metabolic Profile Test based on biochemical parameters evaluated in our study would be beneficial for diagnosis, prevention and control of diseases such as pregnancy toxemia, hypocalcemia, infertility in goats

    Selective photosensitization through an and logic response: Optimization of the pH and glutathione response of activatable photosensitizers

    Get PDF
    A series of pH and GSH responsive photosensitizers were designed and synthesized. pKa values were optimized by adjusting the inductive contribution of substituents to reach a pH range (6.0-7.4) relevant to the tumour microenvironment. pH-Activatable behaviour and redox mediated release of the quencher from the PS by GSH allow the construction of an AND logic operator for selective photodynamic action in aqueous solutions. ┬ę The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015

    Fast Responding and Selective Near-IR Bodipy Dye for Hydrogen Sulfide Sensing

    Get PDF
    Cataloged from PDF version of article.A Bodipy based, highly selective probe for hydrogen sulfide has been designed, synthesized and demonstrated to detect H2S in living cells. In this design, the reduction of two arylazido groups change the charge transfer characteristics of the 3,5-distyryl substituents on the Bodipy core, producing a 20 nm bathochromic spectral shift in the absorption band, and quenching of the emission by 85% compared to the original intensity, through photoinduced electron transfer
