Journal of Chemical Sciences (Impact Factor: 1.19). 07/2009; 121(4):397-405. DOI: 10.1007/s12039-009-0046-3

ABSTRACT A novel polypyridyl ligand phenyl-(4,5,9,14-tetraaza-benzo[b]triphenylen-1,1-yl)-methanone (PTBM) and its complexes [Ru(phen)2(PTBM)]2+ (1) (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) and [Ru(bpy)2(PTBM)]2+ (2) (bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, mass spectroscopy, and 1H NMR. The DNA-binding properties of the two complexes were investigated by spectroscopic and viscosity measurements. The
results indicate that both complexes bind to DNA via an intercalative mode and the DNA-binding affinity of complex 1 is greater than that of complex 2. When irradiated at 365 nm, complex 1 was found to be a more-effective DNA-cleaving agent than complex 2.

    ABSTRACT: We examine the use of the ATM VBR service class to transport TCP traffic. For this service class, a sustainable cell rate (SCR) and a peak cell rate (PCR) are negotiated at connection set up and enforced using leaky bucket policing. Ideally, a policed TCP connection would realize an average throughput close to the SCR. Unfortunately, our results show that interactions between TCP congestion control algorithms and leaky bucket policing can cause the average TCP throughput to be much lower than the SCR. We demonstrate the cause of this degradation and suggest possible remedies to improve performance

    ABSTRACT: Based on the a ligand BDPPZ [(9a,13a-dihydro-4,5,9,14-tetraaza-benzo[b]triphenylene-11-yl)-phenyl-methanone] (1) and its polypyridyl hetero- and homoleptic Ru(II) metal complexes, [Ru(bpy)2L](PF6)2 (2), [Ru(phen)2L](PF6)2 (3), [Ru(dafo)2L](PF6)2 (4), [Ru(dcbpy)2L](PF6)2 (5) and [RuL3](PF6)2 (6) (where, L = ligand, bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine, phen = 1,10-phenantroline, dafo = 4,5-diazafluoren-9-one and dcbpy = 3,3′-dicarboxy-2,2′-bipyridine), have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, UV–vis, FT-IR, 1H and 13C-NMR spectra (for ligand), molar conductivity measurements and X-ray powder techniques. The electrochemical parameters of the substituted ligand and its polypyridyl hetero- and homoleptic Ru(II) metal complexes are reported by cyclic voltammetry. UV–vis spectroscopy is used to compare the differences between the conjugated π systems in this ligand and its Ru(II) metal complexes. The polypyridyl hetero- and homoleptic Ru(II) metal complexes also tested as catalysts for the formation of cyclic organic carbonates from carbon dioxide and liquid epoxides which served as both reactant and solvent. The results showed that the [Ru(L)3](PF6)2 (6) complex is more efficient than the other Ru(II) complexes for the formation of cyclic organic carbonates from carbon dioxide.

    ABSTRACT: A new charge transfer complex as a result of interaction between 1,10-phenanthroline (donor) with 2,4,6-trinitrophenol (picric acid), acceptor, was synthesized and characterized by FTIR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, mass spectroscopy, single-crystal X-ray diffraction and elemental analysis. The single crystal structure indicates that the cation and anion are joined together by strong N(+)H⋯O(-) type hydrogen bonds. This has been attributed to the formation of 1:1 CT complex via hydrogen bonding interaction. The binding of CT complex with in vitro calf thymus DNA was investigated by the fluorescence spectroscopy. To determine the DNA binding ability of the compound, fluorescence intensity data were analyzed by the Stern-Volmer equation and remarkable DNA interaction with CT complex is found. The CT complex was also screened for its antimicrobial activity. The CT complex exhibited inhibitory results against E. coli and Pseudomonas arenginosa, and the marked enhancement in the potency as antifungal agent.
