Chlordecone is a synthetic organo chlorinated compound that has been used as pesticide. It has been identified and listed as persistent organic pollutant by the Stockholm Convention. The use of activated carbon filters is one of the most widely popular solutions for water decontamination. The chlordecone labeled with radioactive iodine (1-iodochord...

A molecular modeling study of symmetrical conformers of α-, β-, and γ-cyclodextrins in the gas and aqueous phases was carried out using the M06-2X density functional method, with SMD employed as an implicit solvation model. Eight symmetrical conformers were found for each cyclodextrin. Values of geometrical parameters obtained from the modeling stu...

Article
Activated carbons (ACs) are widely used in the purification of drinking water without almost any knowledge about the adsorption mechanisms of the persistent organic pollutants. Chlordecone (CLD, Kepone) is an organochlorinated synthetic compound that has been used mainly as agricultural insecticide. CLD has been identified and listed as a persisten...

Coordination Chemistry. In their Research Article (e202205371), Peter Coburger, Hansjörg Grützmacher et al. report (IPr)2C2P2 as a flexible ligand to iron carbonyl fragments, giving access to complexes of the general formula [Fe(CO)x{(IPr)2C2P2}]n+. Redox events involve either the metal ion or C2P2 ligand. Graphic design: Dr. Christoph Selg and Lui...

A series of iron carbonyl complexes bearing (IPr) 2 C 2 P 2 ( 1 ), which contains a central 6π‐aromatic four‐membered C 2 P 2 ring, as ligand is reported (IPr = 1,3‐bis(2,6‐diisopropylphenyl)‐1,3‐dihydro‐2H‐imidazol‐2‐ylidene). Reaction of 1 with [Fe 2 CO 9 ] yields the neutral iron tricarbonyl complex [Fe(CO) 3 ‐η 3 ‐{(IPr) 2 C 2 P 2 }] ( 2 ) that...

The dinuclear Ru diazadiene olefin complex, [Ru2(OTf)(μ-H)(Me2dad)(dbcot)2], is an active catalyst for hydrogen evolution in a Polymer Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolyser. When supported on high surface area carbon black and at 80 °C, [Ru2(OTf)(μ-H)(Me2dad)(dbcot)2]@C evolves hydrogen at the cathode of a PEM electrolysis cell (400 mA cm-2, 1...

The nitrogen oxides NO2, NO, and N2O are among the most potent air pollutants of the 21st century. A bimetallic Rh(I)‐Pt(II) complex containing an especially designed multidentate phosphine olefin ligand is capable of catalytically detoxicate these nitrogen oxides in the presence of hydrogen to water and dinitrogen as benign products. The catalytic...

The cyano(triphenylsilyl)phosphanide anion was prepared as a sodium salt for the first time from 2-phosphaethynolate. We studied the electronic structure of this novel cyano(silyl)phosphanide via computational methods and investigated its reactivity with various electrophiles and Lewis acids, demonstrating its P- and N-nucleophilicity and applicati...

The replacement of carbon in (C─C) n chains of polyolefins by phosphorus leads to polycarbophosphanes (P─C) n , which may possess unique chemical and physical properties. However, macromolecules with a regular (P─C) n chain have never been unambiguously identified. Here, we demonstrate that addition polymerization, a general concept to polymeriz...

The chlordecone (CLD) and the β-hexachlorocyclohexane (β-HCH) are persistent organic pollutants with a great environmental stability that cause severe affectations to health. The concentration of these pesticides in the environment is low, which represent a problem for their determination, even for the modern analytical methods. The labeling of the...

The present work aimed to study the guest–host complexes of β-hexachlorocyclohexane (β-HCH), a pesticide with high environmental stability that can cause severe health problems, with the most common cyclodextrins (α-, β-, and γ-CDs). The formation reactions of these molecular inclusion complexes were addressed in this research. The multiple minima...

Metaldehyde (MA)is an organic compound widely used in agriculture all around the world as molluscicide. There are growing concerns that relatively high levels of MA have been detected in surface water, which could be ascribed to the fact that it is transparent to common wastewater treatment processes. A theoretical study of the influence of activat...

Chlordecone (CLD) has been addressed as a persistent organic pollutant, according to the list of the Stockholm Convention, for its high toxicity and resistance to degradation in the environment. Cyclodextrins (CDs) are torus shaped polycyclic oligosaccharides. The most common are α, β and γ-CD, each of them having a hydrophilic exterior that makes...

Alpha spectrometry is a powerful tool for environmental samples analyses. Among naturally occurring radionuclides, much of the effective dose by food ingestion is due to 210Po. One of the most important steps in 210Po determination is the pretreatment of samples. The aim of this work was to evaluate chemical procedures for the determination of 210P...

Question
I'm trying to identify the types of interactions that take place between a Surface Group in an Activated Carbon and a pollutant, to determine what fraction of this interaction energy is dispersive, covalent, etc. Any help (software, methods, etc.) will be welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
Question
I need some help in experimental design and final determination of the concentration of chlorinated hydrocarbons in order to build an adsorbtion isotherm. Can anyone help me?
