Title: Fluorescence and Ir studies on the hydration state of lanthanides(III) and curium(III) in the complexes extracted with purified Cyanex301, Cyanex302 and Cyanex272

Abstract

The hydration number of lanthanides, Ln(III) (Ln = Sm, Eu, Tb, Dy), and Cm(III) in the extracted complexes with purified Cyanex301, Cyanex302 and Cyanex272 was investigated using time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy (TRLFS) and FT-IR spectroscopy. The results, in conjunction with the previous results on the Ln(III) and Am(III) complexes, provide insight into the composition of the extracted complexes. No difference has been observed in the hydration number or the composition between the Ln(III) and Cm(III) complexes with Cyanex302 or Cyanex272. The extracted complexes of Ln(III) and Cm(III) with Cyanex302 have the formula, ML(HL2)2 cdot nH2O, where L stands for the anion of Cyanex302 and n = 3 - 5. No water molecules are found in the first coordination shell of Ln(III) or Cm(III) complexes with Cyanex272. In contrast to the extraction with Cyanex302 or Cyanex272, the composition of the Ln(III) complexes is different from that of the Cm(III) complex in the extraction wi th Cyanex301. The Ln(III) complex with Cyanex301 has one or two H2O molecules with a molecular formula of LnL3 cdot 2H2O or HLnL4 cdot H2O, where L stands for the anion of Cyanex301. However, the Cm(III) complex with Cyanex301 does not contain H2O with the molecular formulamore » of HCmL4, in which only the 8 sulfur atoms from Cyanex301 coordinate to Cm(III). The results for Cm(III) agree with the previous data for Am(III) from EXAFS and IR measurements.« less

  • Results of ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD), quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) and classical molecular dynamics (CMD) simulations of Cm3+ in liquid water at a temperature of 300 K are reported. The AIMD simulation was based on the Car-Parrinello MD scheme and GGA-PBE formulation of density functional theory. Two QM/MM simulations were performed by treating Cm3+ and the water molecules in the first shell quantum mechanically using the PBE (QM/MM-PBE) and the hybrid PBE0 density functionals (QM/MM-PBE0). Two CMD simulations were carried out using ab initio derived pair plus three-body potentials (CMD-3B) and empirical Lennard-Jones pair potential (CMD-LJ). The AIMD andmore » QM/MM-PBE simulations predict average first shell hydration numbers of 8, both of which disagree with recent experimental EXAFS and TRLFS value of 9. On the other hand, the average first shell hydration numbers obtained in the QM/MM-PBE0 and CMD simulations was 9, which agrees with experiment. All the simulations predicted a average first shell and second shell Cm-O bond distances of 2.49-2.53 Å and 4.67-4.75 Å respectively, both of which are in fair agreement with corresponding experimental values of 2.45-2.48 Å and 4.65 Å. The average geometric arrangement of the eight-fold and nine-fold coordinated first shell structures corresponded to the square anti-prism and tricapped trigonal prisms respectively. The second shell hydration number for AIMD QM/MM-PBE, QM/MM-PBE0, CMD-3B, and CMD-LJ, were 15.8, 17.2, 17.7, 17.4, and 16.4 respectively, which indicates second hydration shell over-coordination compared to recent EXAFS experimental value of 13. Save the EXAFS spectra CMD-LJ simulation, all the computed EXAFS spectra agree fairly well with experiment and a clear distinction could not be made between configurations with 8-fold and 9-fold coordinated first shells. The mechanisms responsible for the first shell associative and dissociative ligand exchange in the classical simulations have been analyzed. The first shell mean residence time is predicted to be on the nanosecond timescale. The computed diffusion constants of Cm3+ and water are in good agreement with experimental data.« less
  • To study the mechanisms that integrate pigment and chlorophyll a/b-binding apoprotein biosynthesis during light-harvesting complex II assembly, we have examined {beta}-glucuronidase (GUS) enzyme activities, cell-sorting-separated single cells sizes in fluorescence activated, cell-sorting-separated single cells from transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana wild-type and immutans variegation mutant plants that express an Lhcb (photosystem II chlorophyll a/b-binding polypeptide gene)/GUS promoter fusion. We found that GUS activities are positively correlated with chlorophyll content and cell size in green cells from the control and immutans plants, indicating that Lhcb gene transcription is coordinated with cell size in this species. Compared with the control plants, however, chlorophyll productionmore » is enhanced in the green cells of immutans; this may represent part of a strategy to maximize photosynthesis in the white sectors of the mutant. Lhcb transcription is significantly higher in pure-white cells of the transgenic immutans plants than in pure-white cells from norflurazon-treated, photooxidized A. thaliana leaves. This suggests that immutans partially uncouples Lhcb transcription from its normal dependence on chlorophyll accumulation and chloroplast development. We conclude that immutans may play a role in regulating Lhcb transcription, and may be a key component in the signal transduction pathways that control chloroplast biogenesis. 58 refs., 5 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • [sup 1]H-NMR shift data were measured for the diamagnetic La[sup 3+] and Lu[sup 3+] complexes with diethylenetriaminepentaacetate-N,N[prime]-bis(methylamide) (DTPA-BMA) at different temperatures. Quartet splitting of the methylene protons of the terminal acetate groups and of the amide groups upon complexation with metal ions is indicative of long-lived metal-nitrogen bonds and short-lived metal-oxygen bonds. The observation of two quartets for the terminal acetates and the splitting of the N-methyl singlet upfield is attributed to the presence of more than one conformation in solution. Thermodynamic data indicate that DTPA-BMA acts as an octadentate ligand toward lanthanide ions and possibly as a hexadentate ligandmore » toward Ca[sup 2+], Cu[sup 2+], and Zn[sup 2+] ions. Fluorescence data for the Eu[sup 3+] complex support the octadentate behavior of the ligand toward lanthanides and indicate that the complex contains one coordinated water molecule. 16 refs., 4 figs., 4 tabs.« less
