  1. Functionalized Hyperbranched Polymers And Nonionenes

    Roy, Raj Kumar
    In 1980’s a new class of material named as dendrimer became popular both in the field of polymer science and engineering. Dendrimer is an example of symmetric, highly branched three dimensional globular nano-object. It possess several interesting physical and chemical properties like low solution and melt-viscosity, lower intermolecular chain entanglement, large number of end groups placed at the molecular periphery, relatively high solubility with respect to their linear counterpart. In order to get this perfectly branched structure, one has to go through the tedious multistep synthetic approach, repetitive chromatographic purification and protection-deprotection strategies in every step; all of which limits...

  2. Self-Selection Of Discrete Molecular Architectures In Coordination-Driven Self-Assembly

    Bar, Arun Kumar
    Self–assembly has long been attracting chemists’ attention because it can yield fascinating supramolecular architectures in a single step. More precisely, metal–ligand coordination–driven self–assembly has stood out as an efficient methodology in this paradigm due to simple design principle and high predictability of the final molecular architectures. Moreover, one can envisage hierarchical nanoscopic molecular architectures with a vast range of size, shape and functionality via this methodology. Two–component self–assembly (involving one type of donor and one type of acceptor) is relatively easy to monitor and a widely used protocol. Whereas, multicomponent self–assembly (involving more than one types of donors/or acceptors) is...

  5. Ultrafast Raman Loss Spectroscopy (URLS) : Understanding Resonant Excitation Response And Linewidth Changes

    Adithya Lakshmanna, Y
    Raman spectroscopy involves change in the polarizability of the molecular system on excitation and is based on scattering process. Spontaneous Raman scattering is a two photon process, in which the input light initiates the excitation, which then leads to an emission of another photon due to scattering. It is extensively used to understand molecular properties. As spontaneous Raman scattering is a weak process, the detection of these weak Raman photons are rather difficult. Alternatively, resonance Raman (RR) scattering is another technique where the excitation wavelength is chosen according to the material under study. The excitation wavelength is chosen to be...

  6. Targeting Cancer Cells And Live Cell Imaging Using Bis(thiosemicarbazone) Complexes Of Copper And Zinc

    Duraippandi, P
    Transition metal bis(thiosemicarbazone) complexes have been of great interest in the last five decades. One of the most striking features of these complexes is that they possess a wide range of biological properties including antimalarial, antibacterial and anticancer activity. Zinc and copper bis(thiosemicarbazone) complexes have recently attracted attention due to their intracellular fluorescence and anticancer activity, respectively. The present work “Targeting Cancer Cells and Live Cell Imaging Using Bis(thiosemicarbazone) Complexes of Copper and Zinc” is an effort to target cancer cells using folic acid or biotin linked anticancer active copper bis(thiosemicarbazone) complexes. Interestingly, bis(thiosemicarbazone) ligands form zinc complexes that could...

  7. Self-Assembly Of Functional Supramolecular Architectures via Metal-Ligand Coordination

    Shanmugaraju, S
    Over the past few decades, supramolecular self-assembly has become an alternative synthetic tool for constructing targeted discrete molecular architectures. Among various interactions, metal-ligand coordination has attracted great attention owing to high bond enthalpy (15−50 Kcal/mol) and predictable directionality. The basic principle of metal-ligand directed self-assembly relies on the proper designing of information encoded rigid complementary building units (a transition metal based acceptor and a multidentate organic donor) that self-recognize themselves in a chemically reasonable way (depends on their bite angle and symmetry) during self-assembly process. As far as acceptor units are concerned, Pd(II) and Pt(II) metal-based cis-blocked 90° acceptors have...

  8. Ultrafast Raman Loss Spectroscopy (URLS)

    Mallick, Babita
    Contemporary laser research involves the development of spectroscopic techniques to understand the microscopic structural aspects of a simple molecular system in chemical and materials to more complex biological systems such as cells. In particular, Raman spectroscopy, which provides bond specific information, has attracted considerable attention. Further with the advent of femtosecond (fs) laser, the recent trend in the field of fs chemistry is to develop nonlinear Raman techniques that allow one to acquire vibrational structural information with both fs temporal resolution as well as good spectral resolution. Among many advanced nonlinear Raman techniques, the development of fs Stimulated Raman scattering...

  10. Rotational Specroscopic And Theoretical Investigations Of Non-conventional Hydrogen Bonds

    Aiswarya Lakshmi, P
    The nature of interactions within a molecule, i.e. chemical bonding, is well understood today. However, our understanding about intermolecular interactions, which has great relevance in nature, is still evolving. Historically there are two types of intermolecular interactions, van der Waals interaction and hydrogen bonding. However, there has been an upsurge of interest in the halogen bonding and lithium bonding during the last decade. The main emphasis of our research is to understand these interactions in detail, in particular non-conventional hydrogen bond acceptors. In this work, weakly bound complexes are studied using Pulsed Nozzle Fourier Transform Microwave Spectrometer, which has been...

  11. Probing The Equilibrium Geometry Of Weakly Interacting Systems In Solution By Hyper-Rayleigh Scattering

    Pandey, Ravindra
    Under the electric dipole approximation, second harmonic of the incident light is scattered by a collection of randomly oriented molecular dipoles in solution due to instantaneous orientational fluctuation which is directional. If two such dipoles are correlated in space through intermolecular or other interactions, the intensity of the second harmonic scattered light (SHSL) will be related to the extent of such interactions. If two dipoles are arranged in a particular geometry by design, the geometry will determine the intensity of the SHSL. If a molecule has no dipole moment, the intensity of the SHSL will be less and is only...

  12. Understanding Solvent Effect On Triplet State Structure Of Thioxanthone And Its Derivatives Using Time-Resolved Resonance Raman Spectroscopy

    Pandey, Rishikesh
    It has long been recognized that course and efficiency of a chemical reaction is largely mediated by the short-lived transient species (excited state or radicals) which are formed as reactive intermediates during a chemical reaction. Subtle changes not only in the bonding and electronic distributions but also in the conformations and geometries of these intermediates have a dramatic influence on the reactivity. A detailed understanding of the structural and dynamical aspects of electronic excited states is therefore essential towards unraveling photoinduced natural processes and for designing novel photonic materials. Time-resolved techniques have been widely used to study the transient species...

  13. Conformational Reorganization Of Hyperbranched And Linear Polymers And Functionalized Porous Polymer Films

    Samuel, Ashok Zachariah
    The main focus of the research work presented in the thesis is the understanding of structural and conformational reorganizations in hyperbranched and linear polymers. The thesis includes three different investigations: a) the design, synthesis, conformational reorganizations and self-assembly of hyperbranched polymers (HBPs), b) the Raman spectroscopic studies of the melting of polyethylene glycol (PEG), and c) the preparation of functionalized porous polymer films. HBPs are structurally imperfect analogues of the defect-free branched polymers called dendrimers. Dendrimers prepared using a stepwise polymerization methodology will carry all the unreacted B groups at the periphery and therefore modification of these peripheral units with...

  14. Theoretical Studies Of Electronic Excitation Energy Transfer Involving Some Nanomaterials

    Swathi, R S
    Electronic Excitation Energy Transfer is an important intermolecular photophysical process that can affect the excited state lifetime of a chromophore. A molecule in an electronically excited state can return to the ground state by radiative as well as non-radiative processes. During the excited state lifetime, if the chromophore (energy donor) finds a suitable species (energy acceptor) nearby with resonant energy levels, it can transfer the excitation energy to that species and return to the ground state. This process is called Electronic Excitation Energy Transfer. When the energy donor is fluorescent, the process is called Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) [1]....

  20. Self-Assembly Of Discrete Molecular Architectures : Design, Synthesis And Characterization

    Ghosh, Sushobhan
    Stepwise covalent synthesis of large molecules is often time consuming and laborious and thus generally ends in a low yield of the target product. It is also difficult to achieve a large desired product where the controlling force is a non-directional weak interaction. Instead, by utilizing stronger metal-ligand directional coordination bonding approach, one can easily prepare the desired large molecules using appropriate molecular units. Further attractive feature of this approach is the incorporation of functional groups into final structures to make the assemblies functional. It is found that symmetrical polypyridyl and rigid linkers have been used widely in the construction...
