Findings on the formation and features of nanosized particles based on palladium complexes, which are active in hydrogenation catalysis, are summarized. Depending on the nature of a reducing agent, nanosized particles formed by the reduction of palladium(II) phosphine complexes are either metallic nuclei stabilized by organophosphorus ligands or associates of polynuclear phosphido or phosphinideno palladium complexes whose surface contains immobilized Pd(0) clusters. The ensembles of the Pd(0) atoms are active in hydrogenation.

    The atom-type description language (ATDL) is a universal language used to describe and recognize the atom types from chemical connectivity. In this paper the ATDL approach specifications are reported with several examples. To date, this language is implemented in VEGA (http://www.ddl.unimi.it),...

    The silatranes basicity study results are summarized. A large amount of experimental data obtained 25-40 years ago is critically reviewed. It is shown that the reactivity and physicochemical properties of silatranes are determined by their basicity, which depends on the stereoelectronic structure.

    Two kinds of the homogeneous nucleation theory exist at the present: the classical nucleation theory and the semiphenomenological model. To test them, we performed molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations of nucleation from vapor to liquid with 5000–20 000 Lennard-Jones-type molecules....

    We investigate the dynamics of nonlinear photonic crystal (PC) atoms by use of numerical simulations in a pump-probe scheme based on a finite-difference time-domain technique. A two-dimensional nonlinear PC atom with multimode is intentionally employed for the numerical simulations. The use of...

    Motivation: Metabolic modelling provides a mathematically rigorous basis for system-level analysis of biochemical networks. However, the growing sizes of metabolic models can lead to serious problems in their construction and validation. In this work, we describe a relatively poorly investigated...

    It was shown that the acid number of oils and fats emulsified in aqueous solutions of surfactants can be determined by alkalimetry. Effective pK values of pure long-chain carboxylic acids and acids from some edible oils were determined in different surfactant emulsions. Effective pT values were...
