Solvent Effect on the Absorption and Fluorescence Emission Spectra of Some Purine Derivatives: Spectrofluorometric Quantitative Studies

Journal of Solution Chemistry (Impact Factor: 1.13). 37(7):895-917. DOI: 10.1007/s10953-008-9289-8

ABSTRACT The absorption and emission spectra of six purine derivatives: adenine (I), N(9)-hydroxyethyladenine (II), N(6)-acetyladenine (III), N(6)-isobutyryladenine (IV), guanine (V), and N(2),N(9)-diacetylguanine (VI) have been investigated. The effects of solvent and pH on the positions of λ
max  (absorption) and λ
max  (emission) of these compounds were determined. Correlations between the absorption wavelength (λ
max ) of these organic compounds and the solvent parameters (D,n,E) or (K,M,N) show that the peak position is affected mainly by specific- and non-specific types of interactions between the solvent and
solute. Solvent effects on the electronic absorption band shifts are indicative of the extent of charge reorganization of
the solute molecules upon electronic excitation. The Stokes shift (ν
em) was correlated with the orientation polarizability (Δf) and was found to depend mainly on the dielectric constant and the refractive index of the solvents. This shift reflects
the influence of the equilibrium solvent arrangement around the excited solute molecule, which rearranges inertially due to
the instantaneous charge redistribution upon radiative deactivation to the electronic ground state. A spectrofluorometric
analysis technique was applied for the quantitative analysis of the components of a ternary mixture of compounds (I–III).

    ABSTRACT: We studied the surface modification of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) by grafting with methacrylic acid (MAA) through plasma-induced polymerization method. The results show that the grafting yield increases with the increase of reaction temperature. The grafting yield is in proportion to the increase of monomer concentration. The grafting yield increases along with the prolonging of reaction time. The solvent has great influence to the grafting reaction. The grafting yield increases with the increase of volume ratio R, which is defined by the volume of water to the volume of alcohol, when using alcohol and water as mixed solvent. The grafting yield is not zero when only using methanol, ethanol or isopropanol as the solvent. The red shift in UV spectrum could be ascribed to different reactive activities of MAA in different solvents, which also can explain the change trend of the grafting yield. The UV-vis absorbance difference and the FTIR integrated peak area of the CO stretching increase steadily with the increase of grafting yield, which are almost linear relationship. It was confirmed that MAA was grafted onto the PET surface in terms of UV-vis spectrophotometric, FTIR and atomic force microscopy analysis. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2010

    ABSTRACT: The mechanism of the decomposition of the entitled compounds and their complexes is studied. Adenine, its Schiff base of salicylaldehyde, and its azo resorcinol derivatives are ended with carbon. However, oxalonitrile compound is appeared as a final product for adenine acetylacetone and an intermediate for adenine. The thermodynamic parameters of the decomposition reaction were evaluated and discussed. The change of entropy values, ΔS #, showed that the transition states are more ordered than the reacting complexes. The thermal processes proceed in complicated mechanisms where the bond between the central metal ion and the ligands dissociates after losing small molecules such as H2O, NH3, or HCl. In most cases, the free radical species of the ligands are assigned to exist through decomposition mechanisms. The copper adenine and nickel salicylaldehyde complexes are ended with the metal as a final product. However, the cobalt adenine, its acetylacetone, its salicylaldehyde, cadmium and mercury guanine complexes are ended with metal oxides.
