    , Article Journal of Molecular Structure: THEOCHEM ; Volume 814, Issue 1-3 , 2007 , Pages 127-130 ; 01661280 (ISSN) Tafazzoli, M ; Ghiasi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Density functional theory (DFT) using the B3LYP functional and the split-valance 6-311++G** basis sets have been used to investigate the structures of 24 derivatives of glucose and galactose which present sequences of atoms in anomeric configurations of the C-C bond in C-glycosides, C-O bond in glycosides, C-S bond in thioglycosides, C-N bond in glycosylamines, and C-F/Cl bond in glycosyl halides. Values of the vicinal coupling constants, 3JCXCH (X = C, O, S), for mentioned compounds were calculated in water and methanol solvents by using PCM method and new Karplus equations were derived. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.

    Artificial neural network aided estimation of the electrochemical signals of monosaccharides on gold electrode

    , Article Carbohydrate Research ; Volume 343, Issue 8 , 2008 , Pages 1359-1365 ; 00086215 (ISSN) Gobal, F ; Sadeghpour Dilmaghani, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Artificial neural networks were used to predict the oxidation peaks potentials of 7 monosaccharides under linear sweep voltammetry regime. Two sets of descriptors, one based on molecular properties calculated through DFT and another based on simple geometric distributions of hydroxyl groups and asymmetric carbon atoms along molecular chains, were employed to introduce the molecules to networks. Relatively, simple networks of (3,3,1) and (3,3,3,1) structures with the number of epochs not exceeding 15 through training process were capable of correctly predicting the peaks positions with R values in the range of 0.97-0.99. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.

    New Karplus equations for 2JHH, 3JHH, 2JCH, 3JCH, 3JCOCH, 3JCSCH, and 3JCCCH in some aldohexopyranoside derivatives as determined using NMR spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations

    The 1H-13C coupling constants of methyl α- and β-pyranosides of d-glucose and d-galactose have been measured by one-dimensional and two-dimensional 1H-13C heteronuclear zero and double quantum, phase sensitive J-HMBC spectra to determine a complete set of coupling constants (1JCH, 2JCH, 3JCH, 2JHH, and 3JHH) within the exocyclic hydroxymethyl group (CH2OH) for each compound. In parallel with these experimental studies, structure, energy, and potential energy surfaces of the hydroxymethyl group for these compounds were determined employing quantum mechanical calculations at the B3LYP level using the 6-311++G** basis set. Values of the vicinal coupling constants involving 1H and 13C in the...
