Mechanism for the Enhanced Excited-State Lewis Acidity of Methyl Viologen.
New York City, United States. In J Am Chem Soc, Feb 2016
Using a complete active space configuration interaction (CASCI) approach, excited-state molecular dynamics simulations of aqueous MV(2+) are performed in order to test the hypothesis that MV(2+) acts as a Lewis photoacid and to elucidate a mechanism for this behavior.
Airway biofilms: implications for pathogenesis and therapy of respiratory tract infections.
Kami-renjaku, Japan. In Treat Respir Med, 2004
The 14- or 15-ring membered macrolides inhibit: (i) the alginate production from P. aeruginosa; (ii) the antibody reaction to alginate, which leads to a decrease in the immune complex formation; and (iii) the activation of the autoinducer 3-O-C12-homoserine lactone and subsequent expression of lasI and rhlI in quorum sensing systems in P. aeruginosa.
