Abstract: A method is presented which utilizes the calculation of the molecular electrostatic potential or the electric field at a discrete number of preselected points to evaluate the environmental effects of a solvent on the properties of a molecular system. No limitations are imposed on the composition and dimension of the solute, on the goodness of the corresponding wavefunction, or on the shape of the cavity in the dielectric. Several levels of approximation, which evidence the effect of self-polarization of the system of surface charges, the influence of the tails of the solute charge distribution going beyond the limits of the cavity, and the effect of the polarization of the solute, are examined and discussed. more

Abstract: sorption results9 revealed that the iron surface was mostly covered by promoter oxides of AI, Ca, and K. Postreaction XPS results also revealed a C( Is) XPS peak of weak to moderate intensity centered at 284.1-283.7 eV. This binding energy approaches those (ca. 283.5 eV) reported for iron cat bide^.^^*'^ More convincing evidence for carbide formation was obtained from TPHT results collected after reaction studies like those displayed in Figure 1 in which methane was the only product. After reaction at temperatures below 340 OC, only small amounts of reactive carbon could be distinguished with maximum methane desorption rates near 300 OC. However, for higher reaction temperatures, large amounts of methane were produced with a maximum rate just above 400 OC. Since XPS results revealed only small amounts of carbonaceous residue on top of the catalyst surface, this reactive carbon must be associated with carbiding of the catalyst. Consequently, it appears that the active carbon incorporation catalyst is carbided iron. This conclusion is well supported by bulk carbon to iron stoichiometries of 0.1-0.25 estimated from the TPHT peak areas which were adequate to represent 40-60'36 conversion to bulk carbides such as Fe,C or FeSC2. Moreover, preliminary results from studies using bona fide iron carbides have shown similar catalytic b e h a ~ i o r . ~ more

TL;DR: The technological utility of enzymes can be enhanced greatly by using them in organic solvents rather than their natural aqueous reaction media, and they have found numerous potential applications, some of which are already commercialized. more

Abstract: The technological utility of enzymes can be enhanced greatly by using them in organic solvents rather than their natural aqueous reaction media. Studies over the past 15 years have revealed not only that this change in solvent is feasible, but also that in such seemingly hostile environments enzymes can catalyse reactions impossible in water, become more stable, and exhibit new behaviour such as 'molecular memory'. Of particular importance has been the discovery that enzymatic selectivity, including substrate, stereo-, regio- and chemoselectivity, can be markedly affected, and sometimes even inverted, by the solvent. Enzyme-catalysed reactions in organic solvents, and even in supercritical fluids and the gas phase, have found numerous potential applications, some of which are already commercialized. more
