Studies electrochemical and of theory of the funcionary of the density (DFT) of nitrosylcomplexes of ruthenium

by Barbosa Araújo, Sérgio Xavier

Abstract (Summary)
In this work was performed the study of electrochemical NO release and DFT calculations of nitrosylcomplexes of ruthenium like cis,trans-[Ru(bpy)2LNO]3+, where L= isonicotinamide, imidazole e sulfite, and trans-[Ru(NH3)4LNO]3+, where L= caffeine e theophylline bound by the carbon atom, with the purpose of identify trends and contribute to modulation of new compounds. The electrochemical study of the species has shown that the compounds can release NO after reduction and the rate constant is dependent of the Lligand coordinated to the metallic center. The rates were calculated by double step chronoamperometry and range from 0,183 s-1 for cis-[Ru(bpy)2ImNNO]3+ to3 s-1 for trans-[Ru(NH3)4(theophylline)NO]3+. The DFT study was performed with two functionals, LDA ? PWC and GGA ? BLYP, to verify the relationship between the theorical calculation conditions and the proximity to the experimental data. The LDA ? PWC functional has shown shorter bond lengths and larger charges in NO group and larges NO stretching frequency in FT-IR calculated spectra as well, than the GGA ? BLYP functional. The relation between the DFT results and experimental data was good, with linear behavior and r amp;#8776; 0,9. The LDA ? PWC gave best fits in the relations.
