Title: Production and Characterization of the 7H Resonance

Abstract

The 7H resonance was produced via one-proton transfer reaction between a 8He beam at 15.4A MeV and a 12C gas target. The experimental setup was based on the active-target MAYA which allowed a complete reconstruction of the reaction kinematics. The characterization of the identified 7H events resulted in a resonance energy of 600 keV above the 3H+4n threshold and a resonance width of 100 keV. This study represents the first unambiguous proof of the existence of the 7H state.

  • The title compound, for which crystals are more reactive toward oxygen than the chemically similar compound VSO{sub 4}{center_dot}6H{sub 2}O, has been prepared as large single crystals and characterized by both X-ray diffraction at room temperature and neutron diffraction at 11-16 K. VSO{sub 4}{center_dot}7H{sub 2}O crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2{sub 1}/c, Z = 4, with the following cell dimensions, where in each case the room temperature X-ray value is given first followed by the 11-16 K neutron value: a = 14.130(3), 14.013(2) {angstrom}; b = 6.501(1), 6.481(1) {angstrom}; c = 11.017(2), 10.981(2) {angstrom}; {beta} = 105.64(2), 105.39(1){degrees}; V =more » 974.5(3), 961.5(3) {angstrom}{sup 3}. The structure was refined to residuals of R = 0.0289 and 0.0766 and quality of fit = 1.047 and 1.427 for X-ray and neutron data, respectively. It consists of two independent centrosymmetric V(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}{sup 2+} ions connected to a sulfate ion and an interstitial water molecule by an extensive network of hydrogen bonds. The room temperature and low-temperature structures are qualitatively identical. Each hydrogen atom is involved in a hydrogen bond. The network of hydrogen bonds is implicated in the stability of VSO{sub 4}{center_dot}7H{sub 2}O in the solid state in dry surroundings.« less
  • Heteropolymolybdates are widely used as industrial catalysts, ion exchange agents, corrosion inhibitors, and solid state electrolytes for fuel cells. The infrared (IR) and polarized Raman spectra of K{sub 6}[TeMo{sub 6}O{sub 24}]{center_dot}7H{sub 2}O, (NH{sub 4}){sub 6}[TeMo{sub 6}O{sub 24}]{center_dot}7H{sub 2}O, and (NH{sub 4}){sub 6}[TeMo{sub 6}O{sub 24}]{center_dot}Te(OH){sub 6}{center_dot}7H{sub 2}O single crystals have been recorded and analyzed. The Te-O vibrations and the bridging and terminal Mo-O vibrations observed in the IR and Raman spectra confirm a finite [TeMo{sub 6}O{sub 24}]{sup 6-} heteropolyanion in all the three crystals. TeO{sub 6} octahedra are considerably distorted in NTMH1 and NTMH2 crystals, while the distortion is less inmore » KTMH. The NH{sub 4}{sup +} ion does not rotate freely in the crystalline lattice and the N-H{center_dot}{center_dot}{center_dot}O bonds form an asymmetric potential in both ammonium-containing crystals. Stretching and bending vibrations of water molecules show hydrogen bonds of various strengths in all three crystals. Two crystallographically distinct water molecules are identified in KTMH crystal.« less
  • Proton NMR studies are reported on the complementary d(C1-C2-A3-C4-T5-A6-oxo-G7-T8-C9-A10-C11-C12){center dot}d(G13-G14-T15-G16-A17-A18-T19-A20-G21-T22-G23-G24) dodecanucleotide duplex (designated 8-oxo-7H-dG{center dot}dA 12-mer), which contains a centrally located 7-hydro-8-oxodeoxyguanosine (8-oxo-7H-dG) residue, a group commonly found in DNA that has been exposed to ionizing radiation or oxidizing free radicals. From the NMR spectra it can be deduced that this moiety exists as two tautomers, or gives rise to two DNA conformations, that are in equilibrium and that exchange slowly. The present study focuses on the major component of the equilibrium that originates in the 6,8-dioxo tautomer of 8-oxo-7H-dG. The authors have assigned the exchangeable NH1, NH7, and NH{submore » 2}-2 base protons located on the Watson-Crick and Hoogsteen edges of 8-oxo-7H-dG7 in the 8-oxo-7H-dG{center dot}dA 12-mer duplex, using an analysis of one- and two-dimensional nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE) data in H{sub 2}O solution. They were able to detect a set of intra- and interstrand NOEs between protons (exchangeable and nonexchangeable) on adjacent residues in the d(A6-oxo-G7-T8){center dot}d(A17-A18-T19) trinucleotide segment centered about the lesion site that establishes stacking of the oxo-dG7(syn){center dot}dA(anti) pair between stable Watson-Crick dA6{center dot}dT19 and dT8{center dot}A17 base pairs with minimal perturbation of the helix. The structural studies demonstrate that 8-oxo-7H-dG(syn){center dot}dA(anti) forms a stable pair in the interior of the helix, providing a basis for the observed incorporation of dA opposite 8-oxo-7H-dG when readthrough occurs past this oxidized nucleoside base.« less
