The pH-dependent mechanism of the reduction of the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) model complex [Ru(bpy)(2)(5)](2+) (5 = 3-(pyrid-2'-yl)-4-azaacridine) was compared to the mechanism of the previously studied geometric isomer [Ru(bpy)(2)(pbn)](2+) (pbn = 2-(pyrid-2'-yl)-1-azaacridine, previously referred to as 2-(pyrid-2'-yl)-benzo[b]-1,5-naphthyridine) in aqueous media. The exposure of [Ru(bpy)(2)(5)](2+) to CO(2)(*-) leads to the formation of the one-electron reduced species (k = 4.4 x 10(9) M(-1) s(-1)). At pH < 11.2, the one-electron reduced species can be protonated, k = 2.6 x 10(4) s(-1) in D(2)O. Formation of a C-C bonded dimer is observed across the pH range of 5-13 (k = 4.5 x 10(8) M(-1) s(-1)). At pH < 11, two protonated radical species react to form a stable C-C bonded dimer. At pH > 11, dimerization of two one-electron reduced species is followed by disproportionation to one equivalent starting complex [Ru(bpy)(2)(5)](2+) and one equivalent [Ru(bpy)(2)(5HH)](2+). The structural difference between [Ru(bpy)(2)(pbn)](2+) and [Ru(bpy)(2)(5)](2+) dictates the mechanism and product formation in aqueous medium. The exchange of the nitrogen and carbon atoms on the azaacridine ligands alters the accessibility of the dimerization reactive site, thereby changing the mechanism and the product formation for the reduction of the [Ru(bpy)(2)(5)](2+) compound.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes an elegant cross-linking technique for the preparation of chitosan-chloroquinoline derivative by using a greener technique. Chitosan solution in aqueous acetic acid was treated with 2-chloroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde solution to form hydrogel; the resulting hydrogel was subjected to solvent exchange. Combining the results of FTIR and XRD confirmed that 2-chloroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde have been reacted to chitosan. The morphology of the derivative was investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The thermal stability of the derivative was examined by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The photoluminescence (PL) spectra of chitosan-chloroquinoline derivative show red-shifted emission maximum. The microbiological screening has demonstrated the antimicrobial activity of the derivative against bacteria viz. Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans. The obtained results showed that the chitosan-chloroquinoline derivative might be a promising candidate for novel antimicrobial agents for biomedical applications.

    ABSTRACT: Successful control of photo-driven NAD(+)/NADH type hydrogenation reactions in ruthenium complexes has been accomplished by using a new NAD(+) model ligand with modulated distortion of the ligand taking advantage of the substituent effect.

    ABSTRACT: Two isomers, [Ru(1)]2+ (Ru = Ru(bpy)2, bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, 1 = 2-(pyrid-2'-yl)-1-azaacridine) and [Ru(2)]2+ (2 = 3-(pyrid-2'-yl)-4-azaacridine), are bioinspired model compounds containing the nicotinamide functionality and can serve as precursors for the photogeneration of C-H hydrides for studying reactions pertinent to the photochemical reduction of metal-C1 complexes and/or carbon dioxide. While it has been shown that the structural differences between the azaacridine ligands of [Ru(1)]2+ and [Ru(2)]2+ have a significant effect on the mechanism of formation of the hydride donors, [Ru(1HH)]2+ and [Ru(2HH)]2+, in aqueous solution, we describe the steric implications for proton, net-hydrogen-atom and net-hydride transfer reactions in this work. Protonation of [Ru(2*-)] in aprotic and even protic media is slow compared to that of [Ru(1*-)]+. The net hydrogen-atom transfer between *[Ru(1)]2+ and hydroquinone (H2Q) proceeds by one-step EPT, rather than stepwise electron-proton transfer. Such a reaction was not observed for *[Ru(2)]2+ because the non-coordinated N atom is not easily available for an interaction with H2Q. Finally, the rate of the net hydride ion transfer from [Ru(1HH)]2+ to [Ph3C]+ is significantly slower than that of [Ru (2HH)]2+ owing to steric congestion at the donor site.
