Two new homobimetallic ruthenium-arene complexes [(p-cymene)Ru(mu-Cl)(3)RuCl(eta(2)-C2H4)(L)], where L=1,3-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene (3a) or 1,3-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)-4,5-dichloroimidazolin-2-ylidene (3b), were isolated in high yields upon heating a toluene solution of [RuCl2 (p-cymene)](2) with 1 equivalent of carbene ligand under an ethylene atmosphere. They were characterized by NMR and TGA. Their catalytic activity was investigated in the atom transfer radical polymerization of vinyl monomers. In the polymerization of methyl methacrylate, complex 3a displayed faster reaction rates than 3b and the related phosphine-based complex 2a (L=tricyclohexylphosphine), although control was more effective with the latter catalyst. When n-butyl acrylate or styrene served as monomer, a major shift of reactivity was observed between complex 2a that promoted controlled radical polymerization, and complexes 3a or 3b that favored metathetical coupling. Further homocoupling experiments with various styrene derivatives confirmed the outstanding aptitude of complex 3a (and to a lesser extent of 3b) to catalyze olefin metathesis reactions. Contrary to monometallic ruthenium-arene complexes of the [RuCl2(p-cymene)(L)] type, the new homobimetallic species did not require the addition of a diazo compound or visible light illumination to initiate the ring-opening metathesis of norbornene or cyclooctene. When alpha,omega-dienes were exposed to 3a or 3b, a mixture of cycloisomerization and ring-closing metathesis products was obtained in a non-selective way. Addition of a terminal alkyne co-catalyst enhanced the metathetical activity while completely repressing the cycloisomerization process. Thus, quantitative conversions of diethyl 2,2-diallylmalonate and N,N-diallyltosylamide were achieved within 2 h at room temperature using 2 mol % of catalyst precursor 3 a and 6 mol % of phenylacetylene.

Enantiopure, trifunctional carboxylate ligands synthesized by linking the strong π3 3 3 π stacking 1,8-naphthalimide supramolecular synthon to three naturally occurring amino acids using the azide/alkyne click reaction have been prepared [amino acid = glycine (Lgly -), alanine (Lala -), and serine (Lser -)]. These ligands have been used to form complexes of the formula [M(Lamino acid)2(4,40-bipy)(H2O)2] 3 xH2O (M = Fe, Co,Ni, Cu, Zn; x = 4.25-5.52) when mixed with an appropriate metal salt and 4,40-bipyridine by layeringmethods. These complexes are isostructural, with the centralmetal atomcoordinated to two κ1-carboxylate ligands, two water molecules, and one end each of two 4,40-bipyridine ligands in a distorted octahedral environment. Each ligand is oriented in a trans arrangement. These complexes all have homochiral, helical, supramolecular, three-dimensional metal-organic framework structures, with the helical organization of the individual metallic units held together solely by strong, noncovalent π3 3 3 π stacking interactions of the naphthalimide; the other two dimensions are organized mainly by the bipyridine ligands. The helices are extremely large; one turn of the helix travels ∼60 and has a diameter of ca. 40 . For the achiral ligand Lgly -, the nickel complex forms two types of homochiral crystals in the same tube, a clear example of spontaneous resolution. Despite the large size of the individual helices, they are tightly interconnected and nestled closely together. Part of the interconnection comes from the interstitial watermolecules held inside the framework of the complexes in isolated pockets by hydrogen-bonding interactions. For both [Cu(Lala)2(4,40-bipy)(H2O)2] 3 4.25H2O and [Co(Lser)2(4,40-bipy)(H2O)2] 3 4.68H2O, the interstitial water molecules can be removed by placing the crystals under a vacuum for several hours, a process that can be reversed by exposure to atmospheric moisture. This removal/reintroduction of the interstitial water molecules takes place with no loss of crystallinity, representing dramatic examples of single-crystal to single-crystal transformations. The structures undergo little change other than the pockets holding the interstitial water molecules in the hydrated complexes become void spaces in the dehydrated complexes. The removal/reintroduction of the watermolecules in these closely packed solids is facilitated by the “soft”π3 3 3 πstacking interactions organizing one dimension of the structures. The observed magnetic and M€o ssbauer spectral properties are typical of isolated, magnetically dilute, paramagnetic pseudooctahedral divalent transition-metal complexes. [less ▲]

Homocystinuria is an uncommon genetic disease characterized by a marked increase of serum homocysteine (HCY), an intermediate of methionine metabolism. In patients with homocystinuria, hyperhomocysteinemia promotes the development of atherosclerotic lesions and is responsible for premature coronary artery disease. Recently, several studies have also demonstrated that moderate hyperhomocysteinemia--not necessarily linked to an inborn metabolic defect--may also be considered as an independant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The main mechanisms of HCY atherogenic action are thought to be LDL oxydation, inhibition of vascular endothelium growth combined with stimulation of smooth muscular cells proliferation, and interference with the coagulation and fibrinolytic systems. Cofactors of key enzymes in HCY metabolism, folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6, may be given, alone or in combination, for the treatment of hyperhomocysteinemia. Homocysteinemia can be assessed by basal plasma HCY concentration and/or by HCY levels measured after a methionine loading test. Mainly measured till now in specialized laboratories using rather complex techniques (HPLC, GCMS, amino acid analyser ...), HCY determination is today spreading widely owing to the development of automated immunoassays.

Experimental data show that the electrical-resistivity temperature derivative diverges in a different manner in the granular ceramic superconductors YBa2Cu3O7-y and Bi1.75Pb0.25Ca2Sr2Cu3O10-y. Critical exponents are extracted and explained. The dimensionality of anomalous superconductivity fluctuations is deduced. A homogeneous case and a self-similar (fractal) behavior can occur and are found. They correspond to different values of the superconductivity s and some percolation p coherence-length ratio. The results indicate that superconductivity percolation is achieved through surface connection rather than through path connection. [less ▲]

This paper deals with time-domain homogenisation of multi-turn windings and laminated cores in 2D and 3D finite- element (FE) modelling of rotating electrical machines. Herein the number of additional degrees of freedom (auxiliary field variables) in the homogenised regions can be fixed depending on the extent of the eddy current effects and on the desired accuracy. The homogenisation technique is illustrated and validated by means of a 2D model of a switched reluctance motor. Global quantities, such as the phase impedance, converge very well to those produced by a precise but very expensive 3D model. [less ▲]

Classical finite element simulations face the problems of losing uniqueness and strain localization when the strain softening of materials is involved. Thus, when using continuum damage model or plasticity softening model, numerical convergence will not be obtained with the refinement of the finite element discretization when strain localization occurs. Gradient-enhanced softening and non-local continua models have been proposed by several researchers in order to solve this problem. In such approaches, high-order spatial gradients of state variables are incorporated in the macroscopic constitutive equations. However, when dealing with complex heterogeneous materials, a direct simulation of the macroscopic structures is unreachable, motivating the development of non-local homogenization schemes. In this work, a non-local homogenization procedure is proposed for fiber reinforced materials. In this approach, the fiber is assumed to remain linear elastic while the matrix material is modeled as elasto-plastic coupled with a damage law described by a non-local constitutive model. Toward this end, the mean-field homogenization is based on the knowledge of the macroscopic deformation tensors, internal variables and their gradients, which are applied to a micro- structural representative volume element (RVE). Macro-stress is then obtained from a homogenization process. [less ▲]

In this paper, the authors deal with the finite-element (FE) modeling of eddy-current effects in form-wound windings of electrical machines using a previously proposed general frequency- and time-domain homogenization method. By way of demonstration and validation, a real-life 1250-kW induction machine with double-layer stator winding is considered. The skin and proximity effects in one stator conductor (copper bar) are first quantified by means of a simple low-cost FE model, leading to complex and frequency-dependent coefficients for the homogenized winding (reluctivity for proximity effect and conductivity or resistance for skin effect). These complex coefficients are subsequently translated into real-valued and constant coefficients that allow for time-domain homogenization when introducing a limited number of additional degrees of freedom in the FE model. All results obtained with the homogenized model (considering one conductor or a complete slot) agree well with those produced by a brute-force approach (modeling and finely discretizing each conductor).

In this work, multi-scale methods with strain softening are developed in the contexts of damage modeling for composite laminates and of buckling analyses in cellular materials. First, an anisotropic gradient–enhanced continuum damage model is embedded in a mean–field homogenization (MFH) process for elasto-plastic composites. The homogenization procedure is based on the newly developed incremental secant mean-field homogenization formulation, for which the residual stress and strain states reached in the phases upon a fictitious elastic unloading are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using isotropic secant tensors, which are naturally used to define the Linear Comparison–Composite The resulting multi– scale model is then applied to study the damage process at the meso–scale of laminates, and in particular the damaging of plies in a composite stack. By using the gradient–enhanced continuum damage model, the problem of losing uniqueness upon strain softening is avoided. Second, an efficient multi–scale finite element framework capturing the buckling instabilities in cellular materials is developed. As a classical multi–scale computational homogenization scheme loses accuracy with the apparition of the macroscopic localizations resulting from the micro–buckling, the second order multi–scale computational homogenization scheme is considered. This second–order computational framework is enhanced with the following novelties so that it can be used for cellular materials. At the microscopic scale, the periodic boundary condition is used because of its efficiency. As the meshes generated from cellular materials exhibit a large void part on the boundaries and are not conforming in general, the classical enforcement based on the matching nodes cannot be applied. A new method based on the polynomial interpolation2 without the requirement of the matching mesh condition on opposite boundaries of the representative volume element (RVE) is developed. Next, in order to solve the underlying macroscopic Mindlin strain gradient continuum of this second–order scheme by the displacement–based finite element framework, the treatment of high order terms is based on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method to weakly impose the C1-continuity. Finally, as the instability phenomena are considered at both scales of the cellular materials, the path following technique is adopted to solve both the macroscopic and microscopic problems.

The preparation and comprehensive characterization of a series of homoleptic sandwich complexes containing diphosphacyclobutadiene ligands is reported. Compounds [K([18]crown-6)(thf)2][Fe(h4- P2C2tBu2)2] (K1), [K([18]crown-6)-(thf)2][Co(h4-P2C2tBu2)2] (K2), and [K([18]crown-6)(thf)2][Co(h4- P2C2Ad2)2] (K3, Ad=adamantyl) were obtained from reactions of [K([18]crown-6)(thf)2][M(h4-C14H10)2] (M=Fe, Co) with tBuC P (1, 2), or with AdC P (3). Neutral sandwiches [M(h4-P2C2tBu2)2] (4: M=Fe 5: M= Co) were obtained by oxidizing 1 and 2 with [Cp2Fe]PF6. Cyclic voltammetry and spectro-electrochemistry indicates that the pairs [M(h4-P2C2tBu2)2] / [M(h4-P2C2tBu2)2] can be reversibly interconverted by one electron oxidation and reduction, respectively. Complexes 1–5 were characterized by multinuclear NMR, EPR (1 and 5), UV/Vis, and Mçssbauer spectroscopies (1 and 4), mass spectrometry (4 and 5), and microanalysis (1–3). The molecular structures of 1–5 were determined by usingX-ray crystallography. Essentially D2dsymmetric structures were found for all five complexes, which show the two 1,3-diphosphacyclobutadiene rings in a staggered orientation. Density functional theory calculations revealed the importance of covalent metal–ligand p bonding in 1–5. Possible oxidation state assignments for the metal atoms are discussed. [less ▲]

Hypoglycemic sulfonylureas (e.g., gliclazide) are able to transport calcium across hydrophobic domains. Gliclazide and the ionophore A23187 act synergistically upon calcium transport. One calcium atom is complexed by either two molecules of sulfonylureas (or A23187) or one molecule each of sulfonylurea and A23187; the existence of such hybrid complexes has been documented by nuclear magnetic resonance. Conformation analysis of the calcium-gliclazide complex suggests close apposition of the toluyl groups in the gliclazide molecules. [less ▲]
