Quantitative Structure Activity Relationship Analysis of Selected Chalcone Derivatives as Mycobacterium tuberculosis Inhibitors

Alisi Ikechukwu Ogadimma, Uzairu Adamu
In order to gain further insights into the structural requirements for anti-tuberculosis activity by chalcone derivatives of 1,3-diphenylprop-2-ene-1-one, quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) was performed using genetic function approximation (GFA). Geometry optimization was achieved at the density functional theory (DFT) level using Becke’s three-parameter Lee-Yang- Parr hybrid functional (B3LYP) in combination with the 6-31G* basis set. Subsequently, quantum chemical and molecul...

Comparison between Modeling of Cetirizine Solubility Using Different Approaches: Semi-Empirical Density Based Correlations vs. Peng-Robinson EoS

Mostafa Lashkarbolooki, Ali Zeinolabedini Hezave
The tunable nature of the solubility of various compounds, including molecules of pharmaceutical and biological interest, in supercritical fluids (SCFs) makes SCF extraction technology attractive for many separation and purification processes. Among the different influencing parameters, the most important one in the supercritical based processes is the knowledge of solubility of model solute. But, experimental measurement of the solubility of all pharmaceuticals in wide ranges of temperature and...

Some Thoughts on Logic and Intuition in Science and Chemical Engineering

Christo Boyadjiev
The role of the logic and intuition in the chemical engineering is presented. Basic rules of logic in chemical engineering are used: “Construction of mathematical models of chemical engineering structures use the general rules (approximations) of the continuous media mechanics” and “A full correspondence between physical effects and mathematical operators (in the form of functions and their derivatives) in the mathematical models”. The basic mathematical operators as gradient, divergence and Lap...

Non-Linear Optical Properties of Substituted Hexatriene: AM1 and ab Initio Quantum Chemical Calculations

Nouar Sofiane Labidi

We report ab initio studies of the dipole polarizabilities (α) and first static hyperpolarizabilities (β) for a set of substituted hexatriene in which electron donating (D) and electron accepting (A) groups were introduced either end parts of the hexatriene chain NO2-(CH=CH)3-D. Geometries of all molecules were optimized at the Hartree-Fock HF/6-311 G(2d,p) level of theory. Polarizabilities of these molecules w
