RESUMO

Quinone-based compounds constitute several general classes of antibiotics that have long shown unwavering efficiency against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative microbial infections. These quinone-based antibiotics are increasingly popular due to their natural origins and are used in natural beverages from herbs or plants in African, Chinese and Indian traditional medicines to treat and prevent various diseases. Quinone-based antibiotics display different bioactive profiles depending on their structures and exert specific biocidal and anti-biofilm properties, and based on recent literature, will be discussed herein.

RESUMO

Monitoring and detection of cyanide are of crucial interest as the latter plays versatile roles in many biological events, is ubiquitous in environment, and responsible for several acute poisoning and adverse health effects if ingested. We describe herein the synthesis and characterization of novel phenothiazine-based push-pull chromogenic chemosensors suitable for naked eye cyanide sensing. Indeed, specific detections were achieved for cyanide with a LOD of ca 9.12 to 4.59 µM and, interestingly, one of the new chemosensors has also revealed an unprecedented affinity for acetate with a LOD of ca 2.68 µM. Moreover, as proof of concept for practical applications, a paper test strip was prepared allowing its use for efficient qualitative naked eye cyanide sensing.

RESUMO

Prosthetic implants are widely used in dentistry and orthopedics and, as a result, infections can occur which cause their removal. Therefore, it is essential to propose methods of eradicating the bacteria that remain on the prosthesis during treatment. For this purpose, it is necessary to develop surfaces whose antibacterial activity can be controlled. Herein, we designed innovative and smart phosphonium self-assembled monolayer (SAM) interfaces that can be electrically activated on demand for controlling bacterial contaminations on solid surfaces. Upon electroactivation with a low potential (0.2 V for 60 min., conditions determined through a DOE), a successful stamping out of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains was obtained with SAM-modified titanium surfaces, effectively killing 95% of Staphylococcus aureus and 90% Klebsiellapneumoniae. More importantly, no toxicity towards eukaryotic cells was observed which further enhances the biocompatible character of these novel surfaces for further implementation.

RESUMO

Emergence of antibioresistance is currently a major threat of public health worldwide. Hence there is an urge need of finding new antibacterial material. Herein, we report a simple and eco-friendly method to synthesize homo and heterodicationic ionic liquids based on quaternary phosphonium and ammonium salt. In order to investigate the structure activity relationship (SAR) we measured the MICs of a series of 16 derivatives with structural variations (nature of cations and counter-ions, size of linker and alkyl side chains as well as structural symmetry) over a range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains from the ESKAPE group. Some of the tested structures exhibit high antimicrobial activities (MIC = 0.5 mg/L) and are active over a wide range of bacteria from Gram-positive to Gram-negative. Overall, these results reveal the strong potential of di-cationic derivatives as antibacterial agents and the determination of activities from structural features gives decisive information for future synthesis of such di-cationic structures for biocidal purpose.

RESUMO

The recent technological advances combined with the development of new concepts and strategies have revolutionized the field of sensor devices, allowing access to increasingly sophisticated device structures associated with high sensitivities and selectivities. Among them, electrochemical and electrical sensors have gained the most interest because they offer unique intrinsic characteristics and meet the requirements to be integrated in more sophisticated devices including microfluidics or lab-on-chips, opening access to multiplex and all-in-one detection devices. In the present article, we outline and provide a short and concise overview on the most recent achievements in the field of electrical detection of ionic species as they display versatile roles in many important biological events and are ubiquitous in environment.

RESUMO

An innovative novel interface has been designed and developed to be used as a potential active layer in chemically sensitive field-effect transistor (Chem-FET) sensor devices for the specific sensing of Cs+. In this study, the synthesis of a specific Cs+ probe based on calix[4]arene benzocrown ether, its photophysical properties, and its grafting onto a single lipid monolayer (SLM) recently used as an efficient ultrathin organic dielectric in Chem-FETs are reported simultaneously. On the basis of both optical and NMR titration experiments, the probe has shown high selectivity and specificity for Cs+ compared to interfering cations, even if an admixture is used. Additionally, Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infra Red (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy was successfully used to characterize and prove the efficient grafting of the probe onto a SLM and the formation of the innovative novel sensing layer.

RESUMO

We report the synthesis of new mono, di and tri phosphonium ionic liquids and the evaluation of their antibacterial activities on both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria from the ESKAPE-group. Among the molecules synthesized some of them reveal a strong bactericidal activity (MIC = 0.5 mg/L) for Gram-positive bacteria (including resistant strains) comparable to that of standard antibiotics. A comparative Gram positive and Gram negative antibacterial activities shows that the nature of counter-ion has no significant effects. Interestingly, the increase of phosphonium lateral chains (from 4 to 8 carbons) results in a decrease of antibacterial activities. However, the increase of the spacer length has a positive influence on the activity on both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria except for E. aerogenes. Finally, the increased charge density has no effect on the Gram-positive antibacterial activities (MIC between 2 and 4 mg/L) but seems to attenuate (except for P. aeruginosa) the discrimination between Gram-positive and Gram-negative. Overall these results suggest a unique mechanism of action of these triphenylamine-phosphonium ionic liquid derivatives.

RESUMO

Much current research is focused on preventing and controlling the natural process of colonization by marine organisms of surfaces submerged in seawater. Previously, the authors' laboratory has reported the synthesis and the full physico-chemical characterization of homopolymers obtained from 1-ferrocenylmethyl methacrylate (FMMA), 2-(ferrocenylmethoxy)ethyl methacrylate (FMOEMA), and 3-(ferrocenylmethoxy)propyl methacrylate (FMOPMA). Here, the bacterial anti-adhesion activity of these homopolymers (pFMMA, pFMOEMA and pFMOPMA) is reported when stimulated in 96-well microplates containing a printed electrochemical cell in each well. Polymers were deposited on the printed carbon working electrode of each well in two columns each comprising eight wells. Their electrochemical anti-adhesion properties were evaluated by inoculating a marine biofilm forming bacterial strain, Pseudoalteramonas lipolytica, in each well and then applying recurrent scans for 15 h. The results revealed an intrinsic anti-adhesion activity of all the polymers. This activity was amplified by a factor of 10 when potential recurrent scans were applied.

RESUMO

We report herein the fabrication of novel microarrays based on air-stable functional lipid monolayers over silicon using a combination of e-beam lithography and lift-off. We demonstrate these microarrays can be use as ultrasensitive platform for Kelvin probe force microscopy in sensing experiments. Specificity of the detection is given by the functional group grafted at the lipid headgroup. The arrays developed for the detection of ferric ions, Fe(3+), using a γ-pyrone derivative chelator, demonstrate subpicomolar limit of detection with high specificity. In addition, the technique takes advantage of the structure of the array with the silicon areas playing the role of reference for the measurement, and we determine critical pattern dimensions below which the probe size/shape impacts the measured results.

RESUMO

With the help of mixed ligand catalytic systems, the analogous mechanisms behind the cognate performance by Pd(dba)2 and Pd2(dba)3 in catalyzing C-N and C-S coupling reactions were demonstrated. This information is instrumental in organic synthesis requiring Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and may also be valuable to other Pd-catalyzed transformations.

RESUMO

Field effect transistors have risen as one of the most promising techniques in the development of biomedical diagnosis and monitoring. In such devices, the sensitivity and specificity of the sensor rely on the properties of the active sensing layer (gate dielectric and probe layer). We propose here a new type of transistor developed for the detection of Fe(3+) ions in which this sensing layer is made of a monolayer of lipids, engineered in such a way that it is not sensitive to pH in the acidic range, therefore making the device perfectly suitable for biomedical diagnosis. Probes are γ-pyrone derivatives that have been grafted to the lipid headgroups. Affinity constants derived for the chelator/Fe(3+) complexation as well as for other ions demonstrate very high sensitivity and specificity towards ferric ions with values as high as 5.10(10) M and a detected concentration as low as 50 fM.

RESUMO

A novel sulfonamide-conjugated benzo-[2,1-b:3,4-b']bithiophene semiconductor has been designed and synthetized in order to develop a probe for specific detection of anions both in the homogeneous (solution) and heterogeneous phase. Its photophysical and electrochemical data were reported in this study. On the basis of the optical and NMR titrations analysis, the chelator was found to be highly selective for fluoride compared to others anions (Ka = 1.6 × 10(4) M(-1) in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)). In addition, from an intricate sample, the novel chelator shows exceptional specificity toward fluoride and reveals a complete reversibility after addition of trifluoroacetic acid (TFA). Sensing films were obtained by electrochemical polymerization of the probe on an electrode surface, which clearly show effective detection of fluoride.

RESUMO

An innovative MOS-type field effect transistor was developed for the electrical detection of ferric ions. The sensing assays clearly show a specific detection with a gate-source voltage shift of up to 200 mV and a wide linear detection range (5 × 10-14 to 5 × 10-5 M) associated with good stability, selectivity and reproducibility.

RESUMO

The electron transport through molecules in molecular devices is typically influenced by the nature of the interfaces with the contacting electrodes and by the interactions between neighbouring molecules. It is a major goal of molecular electronics to adjust the electronic function of a molecular device by tailoring the intrinsic molecular properties and the interfacial and intermolecular interactions. Here, we report on the tunability of the electronic properties of coronene derivatives, namely dodecakis(arylthio)coronenes (DATCs), which are found to exhibit a three-dimensional aromatic system. Scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), spectroscopy (STS) and simulations based on the density functional theory (DFT) are employed to characterize the structural and electronic properties of these molecules deposited on Au(111) surfaces. It is shown that modifications of the peripheral aryl-groups allow us to specifically affect the self-assembly and the charge transport characteristics of the molecules. Molecular assemblies like supramolecular wires with highly delocalized orbitals and single molecules with molecular "quantum dot" characteristics are obtained in this way.

RESUMO

One of the shortest and most efficient routes toward a series of functionalized pentahelicenes is reported. Benzylic (dibromo)methine coupling is an important entry into functional helicene chemistry. It allowed a mono- or a double functionalization by some metal-catalyzed Ar-C, Ar-S, Ar-CN, and Ar-I bond formations. Those functions offer new avenues for further applications. For instance, helicene (4) can be supported on a Ag(001) surface, which was characterized by high-resolution NC-AFM imaging.

RESUMO

We have synthesized a novel class of dendrimers, consisting of a polysulfurated pyrene core with appended poly(thiophenylene) dendrons (PyG0, PyG1, and PyG2, see Scheme 1), which exhibit remarkable photophysical and redox properties. In dichloromethane or cyclohexane solution they show a strong, dendron-localized absorption band with a maximum at around 260 nm and a band in the visible region with a maximum at 435 nm, which can be assigned to the pyrene core strongly perturbed by the four sulfur substituents. The dendrimers exhibit a strong (Phi=0.6), short-lived (tau=2.5 ns) core-localized fluorescence band with maximum at approximately 460 nm in cyclohexane solution at 293 K. A strong fluorescence is also observed in dichloromethane solution at 293 K, in dichloromethane/chloroform rigid matrix at 77 K, and in the solid state (powder) at room temperature. The dendrimers undergo reversible chemical and electrochemical one-electron oxidation with formation of a strongly colored deep blue radical cation. A second, reversible one-electron oxidation is observed at more positive potential values. The photophysical and redox properties of the three dendrimers are finely tuned by the length of their branches. The strong blue fluorescence and the yellow to deep blue color change upon reversible one-electron oxidation can be exploited for optoelectronic devices.
