Chemosensor Engineering: Effects of Halogen Attached to Carbon-Carbon Triple Bond Substituent on Absorption energy of Pyridine: DFT-Study

Pyridine, C5H5N, and pyridine derivatives of the structure C5(S)nH5-nN (S = -C≡C-X; X = F, Cl, Br, I) have been studied theoretically using DFT computation employing the B3LYP/LanL2DZ level of theory. Effects of substituent halogenation on electron density enrichment of the pyridine nitrogen, and thus its effectiveness as an electron donor have been investigated. Computational results showed that the substituent halogenation does affect the charge density accumulation on the nitrogen atom of pyridine as well as the C2=N and -C≡C- bond lengths and the C2 N C6 bond angle. In addition, charge density localization on the nitrogen atom has been found to depend on the number and position of side substituents.

Hydrocatalytic Reduction of Nitrate in Aqueous Solution over Titania Supported Pd-Au Catalysts

Au3%/TiO2-I, Au1.5%/TiO2-I, Au1.5%Pd1.5%/TiO2-I, Pd1.5%/TiO2-I, Pd3%/TiO2-I and Au6.0%Pd0.2%/ TiO2/IW catalysts, were prepared by impregnation (I) and incipient witness (IW) methods, and characterized by means of XRD. They were tested in the reduction of nitrate ions in aqueous solution and found to have high catalytic activity and selectivity in this respect.
