We present an analysis of the structure of the monomethylammonium nitrate MMAN compound. Vibrational Raman spectroscopy and X-ray powder diffraction have been used to characterize the bulk phases of MMAN, and assignment of the resonant frequencies has been performed by ab initio DFT computations on small clusters of the compound.
The theoretical spectra are in excellent agreement with the experimental ones and provide a means by which an interpretation of the hydrogen-bonding network that exists in such compound can be analyzed. In particular, we found that the spectrum of one of the solid phases is structurally very similar to that of the liquid.
We present experimental evidence for the existence of such phase both from X-ray data and Raman spectra which, in turn, is easily interpreted with a one-to-one correspondence with the ab initio simulation of the small clusters.
A geometric structure of the short-range local arrangement in these two bulk phases is therefore proposed. B, 45 View Author Information. Moro 5,Rome, Italy. Cite this: J. B, 45— Article Views Altmetric. Citations Cited By. This article is cited by 39 publications.

The comparison with the absorbance spectra of two ionic liquids containing these ions indicates good performance of such a combination of theory and basis set. The lowest energy conformer of each pyrrolidinium cation displays equatorial-envelope geometry; however, in contrast with the prototypical PYR 14the main alkyl side chain is not in an all- trans configuration, but it tends to be bent.
Moreover, calculations indicate that the LUMO orbital extends more along the alkyl side chain in and than in the parent ion 1-butylmethylpyrrolidinium PYR The large variety of possible anions and cations allows tailoring their physiochemical properties, such as viscosity, electrical conductivity, melting point, or glass transition temperature.
They are considered as promising safe electrolyte components for lithium batteries and, more broadly, for a wide variety of electrochemical devices, especially the family with pyrrolidinium cations and per fluoroalkylsulfonyl imide anions, due to the subambient melting temperature, high room temperature conductivity, and suitable electrochemical stability [ 1 ].
TFSI has two conformers: the transoid one with C 2 symmetry is more stable than the cisoid one which has C 1 symmetry [ 8 — 10 ].
However, the two conformers are energetically separated by only 2. The cisoid and transoid forms of TFSI give different Raman and infrared spectra, as confirmed by experimental and computational studies [ 811 — 13 ].
Concerning the PYR 14 cation, some detailed studies linking the geometry of the ion with the vibrational properties are available [ 341415 ].
In these studies, the Raman spectra and the computed Raman activities are reported [ 341415 ]. DFT calculations evidenced that the occurrence of conformers of the pyrrolidinium ion is due to the fact that the C 4 N ring is not planar and can therefore adopt either the envelope or the twist configuration [ 3414 — 16 ].
In the first case, one of the atoms is located outside the plane defined by the other four atoms; on the contrary, in the twist configuration, two atoms are located above and below the plane constructed by the other three atoms.
It has been reported [ 1416 ] that, among others, the equatorial-envelope and axial-envelope conformers with the butyl group at equatorial and axial positions against the four carbon atoms of the pyrrolidinium ring are relatively stable, and the equatorial-envelope conformer gives the global minimum.
It must be noted that the presence of different conformers can alter the physicochemical properties of ILs.
For example, it has been reported that ionic liquids containing different conformers have different melting points [ 25 ]. It is, therefore, important to investigate the possible occurrence of various conformers of new ions.
In this context, a combination of DFT calculations and vibrational spectroscopies, such as Raman or infrared, are extremely useful.
Recently, looking for better performances of ionic liquids of the pyrrolidinium family, some modifications of the alkyl chain have been proposed with the aim of decreasing the temperature at which solid phases are formed and having greater flexibility of the chain. To the best of our knowledge, the conformers of pyrrolidinium cations containing an ethoxy group in the main aliphatic side chain and their vibrational spectra have never been studied. N -methoxyethyl- N -methylpyrrolidinium bis trifluoromethanesulfonyl imide TFSI and N -ethoxyethyl- N -methylpyrrolidinium bis fluorosulfonyl imide FSI were synthesized as reported in [ 262730 ].
At Soleil, a thin ionic liquid film was placed in a vacuum sealed cell for liquids with diamond windows and mounted on a CryoMac cryopump. Preliminary calculations of the conformers of PYR 14, and cations were performed using the Spartan software [ 3435 ] at the molecular mechanics level.
They show 33, 27, and 40 possible conformers, respectively. This particular choice of basis set and theory was extensively used in previous literature in order to calculate the infrared and Raman spectra of ions composing ILs [ 2 — 4836 ]. We calculated the infrared vibration frequencies and intensities for all the geometries having energy within 3.
The visualization of the ions was performed by means of the wxMacMolPlt software [ 37 ]. As reported in Section 3the good coincidence of the calculated vibration lines with the experimental absorption of the two ILs is itself a proof of the validity of the model based on the combination of theory and basis set presently used, which allows an easy study of the conformers of the cations.
However, one must remember that, using the approach based on the calculations on single ions, one cannot obtain information about the interaction between anions and cations. In Figure 1we report the structure of the lowest energy conformers of PYR As already reported in [ 1416 ], the equatorial-envelope conformer has the lowest energy. The axial-envelope and the twist configurations possess slightly higher energies: 1.
In all cases, the side chain is in all- trans configuration; geometries with different configurations of the alkyl chain have higher energies. For both ions, the lowest energy conformer has equatorial-envelope geometry. However, differently from the case of PYR 14the side chain is not in an all- trans configuration: for it presents a cis - trans structure Conf. For both cations, the conformers with the next higher energy are those with the twist structure of the pyrrolidinium ring Conf.
For higher energies, the pyrrolidinium is in the envelope configuration, while the chain starts to be folded see Figures 2 and 3. As conformers 3 and 4 of and conformers 1 and 2 of differ only on the orientation of the side chain, their IR spectra are identical and, therefore, in the following, we will report only the spectrum of one rotamer for each couple.
In order to validate the previously reported computational approach, we compared the calculated absorption of the two pyrrolidinium cations with the absorbance of TFSI and FSI.
Indeed, in this spectral range, no contributions from the anions were previously reported [ 738 ].Francis Xavier University, P. The host-guest complexation of hydrocarbons 22 guest molecules with cucurbituril CB7 was investigated in aqueous solution.
Association constants were determined by using the indicator displacement strategy, which allows binding constant determinations also for poorly water-soluble hydrophobic guests. Besides potential applications for the sensing and separation of hydrocarbons, the measured affinities provide unique benchmark data for the binding of neutral guest molecules.
In total, 5 computational data sets were submitted, which allowed the comparison of experimental binding constants with those predicted by coupled-cluster theory DLPNO-CCSD Tdispersion-corrected density functional theory DFTand explicit solvent molecular dynamics MD simulations parameterized with two different force field combinations from the AMBER simulation package.
On the other hand, QM calculations showed better predictions for the absolute values of the binding affinities as reflected by the mean signed errors 4. Introduction of the reference-state correction improved the predictive power of the QM methods, particularly for small hydrocarbons up to C5.
The correlations of both QM and MD submissions also exposed specific outliers, which could be due to peculiarities of the investigated guests, for example, different degrees of conformational changes upon complexation, such as helical structures of the longer n -alkyl chains within the cavity.
The chemistry of host-guest systems describes the complexation of two or more molecules through non-covalent interactions. In aqueous solution, the classical hydrophobic effect is frequently thought to be the dominant contributor to the inclusion of a nonpolar guest molecule into the cavity of concave host molecules. Studying the host-guest complexation of simple hydrocarbons as guest molecules in water is a promising approach to understand the interplay between hydrophobic and dispersion interactions, because electrostatic ion-ion, ion-dipole, dipole-dipole, and hydrogen-bonding interactions between the host and guest are largely eliminated.
Their propensity to bind within the hydrophobic cavity of macrocyclic hosts is well known. Indeed, methods tuned via retrospective studies on existing datasets do not always show the same level of accuracy in prospective studies. Here, measured host-guest binding free energies are compared with predictions made by two very different computational approaches: 1 a quantum-mechanical electronic structure approach which considered between one and seven low-energy bound conformers in a continuum solvent; and 2 classical all-atom molecular dynamics simulations in explicit solvent.
Published results for some of the same guests with CB6 21 were available as a calibration set. Previous host-guest blinded prediction challenges involving CB n contained predominantly cationic guests, 5261 — 65 which introduced strong electrostatic interactions with the carbonyl rim of the CB n that caused a separate challenge for some computational approaches.
Moreover, the solubility of the cationic guests was unknown, which precluded a comparison of calculated versus experimental hydration thermodynamics. Moreover, the guest molecules studied did not span a wide range of sizes.
As will be seen, the cross-check of the hydration thermodynamics proved essential to introduce a reference-state correction. In the Results and Discussion sections below, we address as separate subsections the experimental data, the quantum-mechanical methods and results, and the molecular dynamics methods and results. We then consider the relationship between the two different computational approaches taken in this challenge, QM and MD.
An extensive Supporting Information SI section is attached for expert details. Fluorescence measurements were done with a Varian Eclipse fluorimeter. For the online monitoring of the complexation of volatile liquid hydrocarbons, we employed N 2 as carrier gas to transfer them through the gas phase into the aqueous solution containing the reporter pair until the solubility limit was reached. All binding constants K a values in Table 1 were calculated by assuming a complexation stoichiometry and obtained through repetitive single-point measurements of the fluorescence intensity after dye displacement in the respective hydrocarbon-saturated solution, which was indicated through a plateau value of the fluorescence intensity.
Italic font indicates previously published data not included in the summary statistics in the last four rows. The uncertainties standard errors of the mean for the MD1 and MD2 values do not exceed 0. The temperature was set to K and water was used as solvent, which matches the experimental conditions.
For the submission QM3, to include also host-guest structures potentially favored in aqueous solution, the PBEh-3c level was also used in combination with the COSMO solvation model for water with a dielectric constant of To account more efficiently for the solvation effects on the optimized complex structures in water, a revised QM3 procedure i.
The conformational searching was now done with the semi-empirical XTB Hamiltonian 89 together with the GBSA solvation model for water, followed by harmonic frequency calculations also at this level to provide the thermostatistical free-energy corrections G T RRHO.
The MD1 and MD2 submissions were absolute binding free energy calculations generated using molecular dynamics simulations and referenced to the standard concentration of 1 M. The free energy difference between the bound and unbound state was computed using the attach-pull-release APR method described in detail by Henriksen et al. The work of moving the guest along this free energy path can be computed from the mean restraint coordinate values using thermodynamic integration or other similar approaches, such as multi-state Bennet acceptance ratio MBAR.
An analytic correction to place the unbound guest at standard concentration allows the results to be compared with experiment.We report a joint experimental X-ray and neutron diffraction and computational study on a binary mixture of ethylammonium nitrate EANa protic ionic liquid, and methanol, the shortest alcohol.
These two amphiphilic compounds are also characterized by the existence of an extended hydrogen bonding network in their neat states. We explore how these similar compounds structurally organize at the micro- and mesoscopic levels when mixed in a homogeneous state.
The study demonstrates that the mixture is organized similarly to neat EAN, where the polar versus apolar dualism of the ionic liquid determines the segregation of alkyl tails into domains embedded into the ionic, percolating matrix. Further studies are proposed to rationalize the emerging mesoscopic density fluctuations that develop when approaching methanol-rich conditions.

Structure of a Binary Mixture of Ethylammonium Nitrate and Methanol

Mixed-cation lead halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of promising photovoltaic materials for perovskite solar cells. Formamidinium FAmethylammonium MAand Cs cations are widely studied in the field of mixed-cation hybrid halide perovskites. The results indicate that the c axis distortion of the Pb—I—Pb bond angles can play a greater role in tuning the band gap.
We hope that our study will be greatly helpful for further experiments to find more efficient perovskite materials in the future. The results suggest that the value of the tolerance factor t could be between 0. However, the EAPbI 3 structure was synthesized in It is well known that the PBE functional always underestimated the band gaps of semiconductors. To evaluate the stabilities of the pure and mixed perovskites, we calculated the formation energies of the pure and EA-doped MAPbI 3 perovskites.
The crystal structures of MAI was taken from the ref. The stable structure of hexagonal PbI 2 was used. In the tetragonal MAPbI 3 structure, the relaxed lattice constants a is 8. This indicates that substituting MA with EA is energetically favourable. Interestingly, the stability of MA 0.
The contribution of the conduction band minimum CBM is mainly composed of the 6p orbital of Pb. The organic cation does not contribute to the band edge states because the states of organic cation are far from the Fermi level.
Previous report has indicated that the electronic structures of hybrid perovskites are affected by structural distortion, and the main factor is the Pb—I—Pb bond angle. The larger distortion of the Pb—I—Pb bond angles is from ab plane. This results indicate that the c axis distortion can play a greater role in tuning the band gap. To get more insight into the electronic properties, we next examine the Bader charge analysis for the pure and mixed perovskites.
The results of Bader charge analysis are shown in Table 3. Charge transfer of organic cation and I ion gradually decrease with increasing x. However, charge transfer of Pb cation gradually increases with increasing x. Received 31st JanuaryAccepted 26th February Combining first principles computational investigation with our experimental observations, a detailed lithium de-intercalation mechanism is proposed for this family of Li-excess layered oxides.
The most striking characteristics in these high voltage high energy density cathode materials are 1 formation of tetrahedral lithium ions at voltage less than 4. We show clear evidence of a new spinel-like solid phase formed on the surface of the electrode materials after high-voltage cycling.
It is proposed that such surface phase transformation is one of the factors contributing to the first cycle irreversible capacity and the main reason for the intrinsic poor rate capability of these materials.
