The results of a combined vibrational and structural study of methyl cyanoacetate undertaken by Raman and infrared spectroscopy, and ab initio SCF-MO calculations are presented. It is shown that for the isolated molecule situation, as well as in the liquid phase, methyl cyanoacetate exists as a mixture of two main conformers of similar energies, differing by the relative orientation of the NC---C---C=O axis (the syn and skew forms, having a NC---C---C=O dihedral angle equal to 0° and in the ± 140° region, respectively). In the crystalline state, only the thermodynamically most stable syn conformer remains. The ab initio SCF-MO optimized geometries of the various possible conformers, their relative stabilities, dipole moments and harmonic force-fields are presented, and the conformational dependence of some relevant structural parameters is used to characterise the most important intramolecular interactions present in the various forms studied. Finally, results of a normal mode analysis based on the ab initio calculated vibrational spectra are used to help interpret the experimental vibrational data, enabling a detailed assignment of both Raman and infrared spectra.; http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/B6TGS-3SR3BN2-5/1/852e4ebf0672b59086f751b298a511ae

We present our theoretical results for the structural, electronic, vibrational and optical properties of MO(2) (M = Sn, Zr, Hf and Ti) obtained by first-principles calculations. Relativistic effects are demonstrated to be important for a realistic description of the detailed structure of the electronic frequency-dependent dielectric function, as well as of the carrier effective masses. Based on our results, we found that the main contribution of the high values calculated for the oxides dielectric constants arises from the vibrational properties of these oxides, and the vibrational static dielectric constant values diminish with increasing pressure.

Sum-Frequency Vibrational Spectroscopy (SFVS) has been used to investigate the effect of nitrogen-flow drying on the molecular ordering of Layer-by-Layer (LbL) films of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) alternated with poly(styrene sulfonate) (PSS). We find that films dried by spontaneous water evaporation are more ordered and homogeneous than films dried by nitrogen flow. The latter are quite inhomogeneous and may have regions with highly disordered polymer conformation. We propose that drying by spontaneous water evaporation reduces the effect of drag by the drying front, while during nitrogen-flow drying the fast evaporation of water ""freezes"" the disordered conformation of adsorbed polyelectrolyte molecules. These findings are important for many applications of LbL films, since device performance usually depends on film morphology and its molecular structure.; FINEP (Brazil); Financiadora de Estudos e Projetos (FINEP); Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES); Capes; Universidade de São Paulo (USP); Universidade de São Paulo USP; FAPESP; Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)

No presente trabalho utilizamos as espectroscopias eletrônica e vibracional, com o apoio de simulação computacional de líquidos para estudar o comportamento solvatocrômico e ionocrômico de diaminoantraquinonas. Adicionalmente estudamos a potencialidade da 1,2-diaminoantraquinona (1,2-DAAQ) no reconhecimento de ânions em superfícies de prata. Utilizando espectroscopia de absorção obtivemos espectros da 1,2-DAAQ e alguns isômeros em diversos solventes. Estes resultados foram analisados por métodos empíricos de solvatocromismo, principalmente, pela escala solvatocrômica de Kamlet-Taft. Esta análise nos propiciou um conhecimento preciso sobre o comportamento da 1,2-DAAQ em meio solvente e serviu de suporte para o estudo do ionocromismo, e da interação com as superfícies. Através da simulação computacional geramos estruturas de soluções da 1,2-DAAQ em três solventes e analisamos a estrutura destas soluções via análise das Funções de Distribuição Radial de pares, o que nos possibilitou uma visão no nível microscópico do efeito das interações com o solvente. As estruturas geradas serviram de base para o cálculo do espectro de absorção para comparação com os valores experimentais. Baseado nesta comparação foi possível especular que a estrutura da 1...

Gaussian basis sets were developed with the Generator Coordinate Hartree-Fock (GCHF) method for the atoms from H (14s), O (23s16p), and Al (29sl9p) in the ground state. These basis sets were then contracted to 3s (12,1,1), 5s3p (18,2,1,1,1/14,1,1), and 7s5p (20,3,2,1,1,1,1/14,2,1,1,1) for H, O and Al atoms, respectively, by a standard procedure. The quality of contracted basis sets in molecular calculations was evaluated through studies of the total and orbital (epsilon(HOMO) and epsilon(HOMO-1)) energies at the HF level for the hexaaquaaluminum(III) ion, [AI(H(2)O)(6)](3+). For the O atom, the 5s3p was supplemented with d polarization function and it was used in combination with 3s, and 7s5p for H and Al atoms was used to the theoretical interpretation of the Infrared (IR) spectrum of hexaaquaaluminum(III) ion. The calculations of the IR-spectrum were also performed at the HF level and it showed that the basis sets obtained with the aid of GCHF method lead to the selection of useful contracted Gaussian basis sets for the theoretical study of vibrational property of ionic specie of our interest.

Near-infrared Yb3+ vibronic side band (VSB) spectroscopy is used to obtain structural information of metal binding sites in metalloproteins. This technique provides a selective "IR-like" vibrational spectrum of those ligands chelated to the Yb3+ ion. VSB spectra of various model complexes of Yb3+ representing different ligand types were studied to provide references for the VSB spectra of Yb(3+)-reconstituted metalloproteins. Ca2+ in the calcium-binding protein parvalbumin and Fe3+ in the iron-transporting protein transferrin were replaced with Yb3+. The fluorescence of Yb3+ reconstituted into these two proteins exhibits weak VSBs whose energy shifts, with respect to the main 2F5/2-->2F7/2 Yb3+ electronic transition, represent the vibrational frequencies of the Yb3+ ligands. The chemical nature of the ligands of the Yb3+ in these proteins, as deduced by the observed VSB frequencies, is entirely in agreement with their known crystal structures. For transferrin, replacement of the 12CO3(2-) metal counterion with 13CO3(2-) yielded the expected isotopic shift for the VSBs corresponding to the carbonate vibrational modes. This technique demonstrates enormous potential in elucidating the localized structure of metal binding sites in proteins.

Water dynamics as reflected by the spectral diffusion of the water hydroxyl stretch were measured in w0 = 2 (1.7 nm diameter) Aerosol-OT (AOT)∕water reverse micelles in carbon tetrachloride and in isooctane solvents using ultrafast 2D IR vibrational echo spectroscopy. Orientational relaxation and population relaxation are observed for w0 = 2, 4, and 7.5 in both solvents using IR pump–probe measurements. It is found that the pump–probe observables are sensitive to w0, but not to the solvent. However, initial analysis of the vibrational echo data from the water nanopool in the reverse micelles in the isooctane solvent seems to yield different dynamics than the CCl4 system in spite of the fact that the spectra, vibrational lifetimes, and orientational relaxation are the same in the two systems. It is found that there are beat patterns in the interferograms with isooctane as the solvent. The beats are observed from a signal generated by the AOT∕isooctane system even when there is no water in the system. A beat subtraction data processing procedure does a reasonable job of removing the distortions in the isooctane data, showing that the reverse micelle dynamics are the same within experimental error regardless of whether isooctane or carbon tetrachloride is used as the organic phase. Two time scales are observed in the vibrational echo data...

We examine if the rate promoting vibration of lactate dehydrogenase is a preferred axis of thermal energy transfer. While it seems plausible that such a mechanistically important motion is also a favored direction of energy transfer, none of the previous studies of rate promoting vibrations in enzymatic catalysis have addressed this question. It is equally likely that the promoting vibration, though catalytically important, has no different properties than any other axis in the protein. Resolution of this issue is important for two reasons: First, if energy is transferred along this axis in a preferred fashion, it shows that the protein is engineered in a way that transfers thermal energy into a motion that is coupled to the chemical step. Second, the discovery of a preferred direction of thermal transfer provides a potential route to experimental verification of the promoting vibration concept. Our computational experiments are specifically designed to mimic potential laser experiment with the deposition of thermal energy in an active site chromophore with subsequent measurement of temperature at various points in the protein. Our results indicate that the promoting vibration is indeed a preferred channel of energy transfer. In addition...

The structure and order of insoluble Langmuir monolayers consisting of 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphatidylcholine (DSPC or 18:0 PC) and the surrounding water molecules have been investigated by vibrational sum frequency spectroscopy (VSFS). At surface pressures of 1, 15, and 57 mN/m corresponding to molecular areas of 53, 50, and 43 Å2, respectively, the DSPC molecules formed a well ordered film. Both the VSF signal from the methyl stretching vibrations of the lipid and the surrounding water increased with enhanced surface pressure, as a result of the higher surface density and increased order of the system. Water molecules hydrating the polar parts of the headgroup and in close contact to the hydrocarbon groups of the lipid were observed in all three polarization combinations of the laser beams, and distinguished by their different vibrational frequencies.; Jonathan F.

We have investigated the stability, electronic properties, Rayleigh (elastic), and Raman (inelastic) depolarization ratios, infrared and Raman absorption vibrational spectra of fullerenols [C(60)(OH)(n)] with different degrees of hydroxylation by using all-electron density-functional-theory (DFT) methods. Stable arrangements of these molecules were found by means of full geometry optimizations using Becke's three-parameter exchange functional with the Lee, Yang, and Parr correlation functional. This DFT level has been combined with the 6-31G(d,p) Gaussian-type basis set, as a compromise between accuracy and capability to treat highly hydroxylated fullerenes, e.g., C(60)(OH)(36). Thus, the molecular properties of fullerenols were systematically analyzed for structures with n=1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 16, 18, 24, 32, and 36. From the electronic structure analysis of these molecules, we have evidenced an important effect related to the weak chemical reactivity of a possible C(60)(OH)(24) isomer. To investigate Raman scattering and the vibrational spectra of the different fullerenols, frequency calculations are carried out within the harmonic approximation. In this case a systematic study is only performed for n=1-4, 8, 10, 16, 18, and 24. Our results give good agreements with the expected changes in the spectral absorptions due to the hydroxylation of fullerenes.; FAPESB (Bahia); FAPESP (Sao Paulo); CNPq

We report on the fabrication and operation of a multi-element vibrational structure consisting of two graphene mechanical resonators coupled by a nanotube beam. The whole structure is suspended. Each graphene resonator is clamped by two metal electrodes. The structure is fabricated using a combination of electron-beam lithography and atomic-force microscopy nano-manipulation. This layout allows us to detect the mechanical vibrations electrically. The measured eigenmodes are localized in either one of the graphene resonators. The coupling due to the nanotube is studied by measuring the shift of the resonance frequency of one graphene resonator as a function of the vibration amplitude of the other resonator. Coupled graphene resonators hold promise for the study of nonlinear dynamics, the manipulation of mechanical states, and quantum non-demolition measurements.

We have performed high-resolution two-photon dark-state spectroscopy of an ultracold gas of Rb molecules in the triplet ground state at a magnetic field of about 1000 G. The vibrational ladder as well as the hyperfine and low-lying rotational structure is mapped out. Energy shifts in the spectrum are observed due to singlet-triplet mixing at binding energies as deep as a few hundred GHz x h. This information together with data from other sources is used to optimize the potentials of the triplet and singlet states in a coupled-channel model. We find that the hyperfine structure depends weakly on the vibrational level. This provides a possible explanation for inaccuracies in recent Feshbach resonance calculations.

Inspired by the recent experimental data (Phys. Lett. B {\bf 675} (2009) 420), we extend the triaxial projected shell model approach to study the $\gamma$-band structure in odd-mass nuclei. As a first application of the new development, the $\gamma$-vibrational structure of $^{103}$Nb is investigated. It is demonstrated that the model describes the ground-state band and multi-phonon $\gamma$-vibrations quite satisfactorily, supporting the interpretation of the data as one of the few experimentally-known examples of simultaneous occurrence of one- and two-$\gamma$-phonon vibrational bands. This generalizes the well-known concept of the surface $\gamma$-oscillation in deformed nuclei built on the ground-state in even-even systems to $\gamma$-bands based on quasiparticle configurations in odd-mass systems.; Comment: 10 pages, 3 figures

We propose to use the damping signal of an oscillating cantilever in dynamic atomic force microscopy as a noninvasive tool to study the vibrational structure of the substrate. We present atomically resolved maps of damping in carbon nanotube peapods, capable of identifying the location and packing of enclosed Dy@C82 molecules as well as local excitations of vibrational modes inside nanotubes of different diameter. We elucidate the physical origin of damping in a microscopic model and provide quantitative interpretation of the observations by calculating the vibrational spectrum and damping of Dy@C82 inside nanotubes with different diameters using ab initio total energy and molecular dynamics calculations.; Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures, to be published in Phys.

10 pages, 6 figures, 1 table, 1 appendix.-- PACS nrs.: 34.50.Ez; 33.20.Tp; 33.15.Mt; 31.15.Ar.; The CO2(010)–O(3P) vibrational energy transfer (VET) efficiency is a key input to aeronomical models of the energy budget of the upper atmospheres of Earth, Venus, and Mars. This work addresses the physical mechanisms responsible for the high efficiency of the VET process at the thermal energies existing in the terrestrial upper atmosphere (150 K ≤ T ≤ 550 K). We present a quantum-mechanical study of the process within a reduced-dimensionality approach. In this model, all the particles remain along a plane and the O(3P) atom collides along the C(2v) symmetry axis of CO2, which can present bending oscillations around the linear arrangement, while the stretching C–O coordinates are kept fixed at their equilibrium values. Two kinds of scattering calculations are performed on high-quality ab initio potential energy surfaces (PESs). In the first approach, the calculations are carried out separately for each one of the three PESs correlating to O(3P). In the second approach, nonadiabatic effects induced by spin-orbit couplings (SOC) are also accounted for. The results presented here provide an explanation to some of the questions raised by the experiments and aeronomical observations. At thermal energies...

Time-average holographic interferometry has been employed to study how the vibrational modes of a singing wine glass change when it is filled with a liquid. While the liquid clearly lowers the resonance frequencies, it does not change the vibrational mode structure in a first approximation. A more detailed analysis, however, reveals that the presence of the liquid causes the simultaneous excitation of two orthogonal modes that are well resolved for the empty glass.
