1. Mai Oyaide, Aogu Furusho, Chiharu Ishii, Takeyuki Akita, Masashi Mita, Tomomi Ide, Kenji Hamase, Development of an off-line heart cutting two-dimensional HPLC system for enantioselective analysis of serine, threonine and allo-threonine in human physiological fluids, Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis, 217 (2022) 114807, 2022.04, A highly-selective two-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatographic (2D-HPLC, off-line heart cutting
mode) system was developed for the determination of serine (Ser), threonine (Thr) and allo-threonine (aThr)
enantiomers in human physiological fluids. Ser, Thr and aThr have a hydroxy group in their side chains, and the
development of a simultaneous analytical method with a practically sufficient enantio/chemo-selectivity has
been required to clarify their amounts in human physiological fluids. The amino acids in the samples were
derivatized with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole and were isolated by a reversed-phase column (Singularity
RP18, 1.0 x 250 mm) in the first dimension. After the target amino acids were collected, the fractions were
manually introduced into an enantioselective column in the second dimension and were detected by their
fluorescence. For the second dimension, a Pirkle-type chiral stationary phase (Singularity CSP-013S, 1.5 x 250
mm) was used. The resolution values of the enantiomers obtained by the Singularity CSP-013S column were 7.64
for Ser, 7.58 for Thr and 4.71 for aThr by using the mixture of methanol and acetonitrile containing formic acid
as the mobile phases. The developed method was validated and applied to human plasma and urine. In the
plasma, the obtained %D values (the percentage of D-form to total amino acid) were 1.7 for Ser, and trace levels of
D-aThr and D-Thr were observed. In the urine, the %D values were 48.0 for Ser, 1.6 for Thr and 8.0 for aThr
(calculated using D-aThr and L-Thr)..

The introduction of methyl groups at the 2-, 2, 7-, and 2, 3, 6, 7-positions on the acridine moiety shifted the optimal pH that gave relatively strong chemiluminescence intensity from neutral conditions to alkaline conditions. 4-(Ethoxycarbonyl)phenyl 2, 3, 6, 7, 10-pentamethyl-10λ4-acridine-9- carboxylate, trifluoromethanesulfonate salt showed long-lasting chemiluminescence under alkaline conditions. Acridinium esters to determine hydrogen peroxide concentration at pH 7-10 were newly developed..

LA and 3HB were pre-column derivatized with 4-nitro-7-piperazino-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole for the sensitive fluorescence detection and introduced into the 3D-HPLC system composed of reversed-phase, mixed-mode and enantioselective separations. The present method was validated by calibration curves, precision and accuracy using standard solutions and human samples, and sufficient values were obtained. Using the method, the levels of d-LA, l-LA, d-3Hb and l-3HB were determined, and their concentrations were 9.9, 1004.2, 79.7 and 2.1 μM in the human plasma and 16.0, 86.6, 8.7 and 4.8 μM in the human urine, respectively. The present 3D-HPLC system could selectively determine trace amounts of the target hydroxy acid enantiomers without disturbance of the intrinsic interfering substances in complicated matrices and the applications to various disease samples are expected..

Sui-Wen Hsiao, Chiharu Ishii, Aogu Furusho, Chin-Ling Hsieh, Yukiko Shimizu, Takeyuki Akita, Masashi Mita, Tadashi Okamura, Ryuichi Konno, Tomomi Ide, Ching-Kuo Lee, Kenji Hamase, Determination of phenylalanine enantiomers in the plasma and urine of mammals and D-amino acid oxidase deficient rodents using two-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatography, BIOCHIMICA ET BIOPHYSICA ACTA-PROTEINS AND PROTEOMICS, 10.1016/j.bbapap.2020.140540, 1869, 1, 140540-140540, 2021.01, A two-dimensional (2D) HPLC system focusing on the determination of phenylalanine (Phe) enantiomers in mammalian physiological fluids has been developed. ᴅ-Phe is indicated to have potential values as a disease biomarker and therapeutic molecule in several neuronal and metabolic disorders, thus the regulation of ᴅ-Phe in mammals is a matter of interest. However, the precise determination of amino acid enantiomers is difficult in complex biological samples, and the development of an analytical method with practically acceptable sensitivity, selectivity and throughput is expected. In the present study, a 2D-HPLC system equipped with a reversed-phase column in the 1st dimension and an enantioselective column in the 2nd dimension has been designed, following the fluorescence derivatization of the target amino acid enantiomers with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (NBD-F). The analytical method was validated using both plasma and urine samples, and successfully applied to human, rat and mouse fluids. Trace levels of ᴅ-Phe were determined in the plasma, and the %ᴅ values were around 0.1% for all species. In the urine, relatively large amounts of ᴅ-Phe were observed, and the %ᴅ values for humans, rats and mice were 3.99, 1.76 and 5.25%, respectively. The relationships between the enzymatic activity of ᴅ-amino acid oxidase (DAO) and the amounts of intrinsic ᴅ-Phe have also been clarified, and high ᴅ-Phe amounts were observed (around 0.3% in the plasma and around 50% in the urine) in the DAO deficient rats and mice..

The products and generation efficiency of the chemiluminescence reactions were evaluated. 4-(Methoxycarbonyl)phenyl 10-methyl-10λ4-2,7-dimethylacridine-9-carboxylate gave relatively strong chemiluminescence intensities at pH 7−10 and was applied to the measurement of hydrogen peroxide..

Aogu Furusho, Takeyuki Akita, Masashi Mita, Hiroshi Naraoka, Kenji Hamase, Three-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis of chiral amino acids in carbonaceous chondrites, JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY A, 10.1016/j.chroma.2020.461255, 1625, 461255-461255, 2020.08, A three-dimensional (3D) HPLC system in combination with fluorescence derivatization has been developed for the highly sensitive and selective analysis of chiral amino acids in extraterrestrial samples. As the targets, alanine (Ala), 2-aminobutyric acid (2AB), valine (Val), norvaline (nVal) and isovaline (iVal), frequently found chiral amino acids in the carbonaceous chondrites, were selected. These amino acids were pre-column derivatized with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (NBD-F), and the target analytes were separated from other amino acids and organic compounds by a reversed-phase column in the first dimension. The targets were further separated from interferences by an anion-exchange column in the second dimension, and their enantiomers were separated and determined in the third dimension by a Pirkle-type enantioselective column. The present 3D-HPLC system was validated and applied to the Murchison meteorite and the Antarctic meteorites, and all of the target amino acid enantiomers were clearly observed (0.78-22.33 nmol/g in the Murchison meteorite and 1.79-78.84 nmol/g in the Antarctic meteorites) without severe interferences. The %L values of the non-proteinogenic amino acids were almost 50% in both meteorites, and even the proteinogenic amino acids were almost racemic in the Antarctic meteorites..

The introduction of electron-withdrawing groups at 2,4-positions in the phenyl moiety intensified chemiluminescence. 2,4-(Dimethoxycarbonyl)phenyl 10-methyl-10 lambda(4)-acridine-9-carboxylate trifluoromethanesulfonate salt produced long-lasting chemiluminescence emission, showed maximum chemiluminescence intensities at pH 8 and was used in simple chemiluminescence assays of hydrogen peroxide and choline under neutral conditions. The linear calibration range and detection limit of choline at pH 8 were 0.1-1000 mu M and 0.01 mu M, respectively..

Aogu Furusho, Reiko Koga, Takeyuki Akita, Masashi Mita, Tomonori Kimura, Kenji Hamase, Three-Dimensional High-Performance Liquid Chromatographic Determination of Asn, Ser, Ala, and Pro Enantiomers in the Plasma of Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, 10.1021/acs.analchem.9b01615, 91, 18, 11569-11575, 2019.09, The concentrations of several d-amino acids have been reported to significantly increase in the plasma of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the amounts of these d-amino acids are low (around 1% of the l-form or lower), and their analyses were complicated by various interfering compounds in many clinical samples. A highly selective analytical method is thus required to perform the accurate and precise determination of these d-amino acids in the plasma of CKD patients. In the present study, a selective 3D-HPLC system equipped with reversed-phase, anion-exchange, and enantioselective columns has been designed and developed for the determination of the asparagine, serine, alanine and proline enantiomers. For the sensitive analysis, amino acids were precolumn derivatized with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole and detected by their fluorescence. The system was validated by using human plasma in addition to the standard amino acids, and results with a sufficient linearity, precision, and accuracy were obtained. The 3D-HPLC system was applied to the plasma of patients with different stages of CKD and all of the target d-amino acids were clearly observed without interferences for all 25 tested patients. Good correlations were shown between the kidney function of the patients and the %d values of the target analytes, especially d-Asn and d-Ser, indicating that the present 3D-HPLC method is useful for the sensitive diagnosis of CKD..

As the targets, frequently observed ones in mammalian physiological fluids, Ala, Asp, Glu, Leu, Pro and Ser, were selected because these d-amino acids are the potential biomarkers for the early and sensitive diagnoses of various diseases. The target analytes were derivatized with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (NBD-F), then isolated by a reversed-phase column in the first dimension. The NBD-amino acid fractions were automatically collected into the multi-loop device, and introduced into the enantioselective column in the second dimension to separate the d- and l-forms followed by detection by an MS/MS. The obtained resolution values of the enantiomers were 1.87-5.17 and the calibration lines, precision and accuracy were practically sufficient. By using the present 2D HPLC-MS/MS system, trace levels of d-amino acids in complex biological matrices were determined without disturbance by the intrinsic interfering compounds, and successfully applied to the analysis of the human clinical samples (plasma and urine)..

For the reversed-phase separation in the first dimension, a Capcell Pak C18 ACR column (1.5 × 250 mm, particle size 3 μm) was used, and the target fractions were isolated by their hydrophobicity. In the second dimension, a polysaccharide-coated enantioselective column, Chiralpak AD-H (2.0 × 250 mm, 5 μm), was used. The system was validated by the calibration curve, intraday precision, interday precision, and accuracy using standards and real human samples, and satisfactory results were obtained. The present method was applied to human plasma and urine, and in the plasma, trace amounts of d-lactate (8.4 μM) and l-3-hydroxybutyrate (1.0 μM), besides high levels of l-lactate (860.9 μM) and d-3-hydroxybutyrate (59.4 μM), were successfully determined. In urine, trace levels of d-lactate (3.7 μM), d-3-hydroxybutyrate (2.3 μM), and l-3-hydroxybutyrate (3.3 μM) in addition to a relatively large amount of l-lactate (15.4 μM) were observed. The present online two-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatography system is useful for the simultaneous determination of all the lactate and 3-hydroxybutyrate enantiomers in human physiological fluids, and further clinical applications are ongoing..

In benzene, 1a gave 2,4,6,8-tetraphenyldibenzofuran-1-ol (10) gradually as a main product, indicating the phenyl substituents preferred to stabilize the intermediate by delocalization of the negative charge rather than that of the positive one. In contrast, the reaction of 1b occurred spontaneously in order to give a complex mixture, which should be due to 4-methoxyphenyl substituent at the 3 position..

We have developed a new series of dual fluorescent compounds, 1-aryl-substituted 6-methoxy-4-quinolones, and investigated their structural and photophysical properties. The X-ray crystallographic analysis and ab initio quantum chemical calculations revealed that the developed compounds exhibited 60-75 degrees twisted structures. The dual fluorescence of the compounds were observed in polar solvents, and the ratiometric fluorescence responses to alterations in the acidity and temperature were obtained.

Field dependences of magnetization and temperature dependences of χT value after irradiation of 1 and 2 clearly exhibited that spin centers i.e., diphenylcarbene parts of 1 and 2 were magnetically isolated from surrounding molecules each other by steric hindrance of the peripheral bulk substituents even in the neat films. In the case of 3, some part of molecules interacted antiferromagnetically with neighboring molecules but a fatal strong antiferromagnetic interaction was also avoided..

It was found that the copper(II) complex having radical substituted at 4-position of aromatic ligand favors ferromagnetic coupling between organic radical and paramagnetic copper(II) ion..

Its three model compounds, diphenylacetylene derivative 2, bis(phenylethynyl)benzene derivative 3, and oligomeric compound 4 having partial structure of 1 have been prepared by the coupling reaction of ethynyl derivatives of phenylnitronylnitroxide and iodo derivatives of diphenyldiazomethane. Field dependence of magnetization after irradiation of 2 and 3 in frozen solutions suggested that the photo-generated species have quartet and quintet ground states with J/k(B), values of + 1.75 and + 1.09 K, respectively. However, spin interaction between carbene and nitronylnitroxide through 3,3-diphenylacetylene moiety is not strong enough to form high-spin chain having long correlation length for 4.

25. Yves Pontillon, Takeyuki Akita, Andre Grand, Keiji Kobayashi, Eddy Lelievre-Berna, Jacques Pécaut, Eric Ressouche, Jacques Schweizer, Experimental and theoretical spin density in a ferromagnetic molecular complex presenting interheteromolecular hydrogen bonds, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 10.1021/ja991042u, 121, 43, 10126-10133, 1999.11, The association of phenylboronic acid (no unpaired electron, compound 1) with the free radical phenyl nitronyl nitroxide (PNN, S = 1/2 , compound 2) constitutes an interheteromolecular hydrogen bonding system displaying ferromagnetic intermolecular interactions. We have investigated its spin density distribution to visualize the pathway of these magnetic interactions. This complex crystallizes at room temperature in the monoclinic space group P21/n. The unit cell includes one pair (1 + 2). The molecule (1) bridges two radicals (2) by hydrogen bonds OH···ON: the two different hydrogen bond lengths are quite similar (1.95 and 1.92 Å). Infinite chains of this run along the b-axis. In this structure the methyl groups of the PNN are randomly distributed in two different configurations. Below T = 220 K the compound undergoes a crystallographic phase transition due to the ordering of these methyl groups. We have determined the low-temperature structure using both X- ray and neutron diffraction. The new space group is P1̄. The global structure is preserved and infinite chains still run along the b-axis, but the unit cell now comprises two different pairs (1 + 2) instead of one, with four different hydrogen bond OH···ON distances: 1.96 and 1.84 Å for the first pair, 1.96 and 1.91 Å for the second pair. The spin density of this complex was measured at T = 1.8 K (H = 4.6 T) by polarized neutron diffraction. The data were treated using both maximum entropy approach and wave function modeling. As in the isolated PNN, the main part of the spin density is located on the O-N-C-N-O fragment of each radical in the unit cell. However, compared to the isolated case, a significant difference exists: a large unbalance is observed between the two oxygen atoms of each radical. Moreover, a positive contribution is found on the two hydrogen atoms involved on the OH···ON hydrogen bonds of each phenylboronic acid molecule. The stronger contribution corresponds to the longer hydrogen bonds. On the radical the stronger reduction is observed on the oxygen atoms involved in the shorter hydrogen bonds. The experimental results are compared to those obtained by density functional theory (DFT) calculations: on the whole, the experimental effects have been reproduced. However, if there is a good qualitative agreement, from the quantitative point of view, the DFT results are still very far from the experimental ones..

Satoru Karasawa, Yoko Sano, Takeyuki Akita, Noboru Koga, Tetsuji Itoh, Hiizu Iwamura, Pierre Rabu, Marc Drillon, Photochemical formation of ferrimagnetic chains from a pair of polymeric complexes made of octahedral bis(hexafluoroacetylacetonato)manganese(II) with diazodi(4-pyridyl)methane in the cis and trans configurations as repeating units, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 10.1021/ja981293n, 120, 39, 10080-10087, 1998.10, Two kinds of 1:1 manganese complexes a and b of bis(hexafluoroacetylacetonato)manganese(II) coordinated with diazodi(4- pyridyl)methane (1) were prepared. Complexes a and b crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Pbca and in monoclinic C2/c, respectively. Two pyridyl nitrogen atoms from two different molecules of 1 are coordinated in the cis and trans configurations to the manganese ion to form helical and zigzag infinite chains of octahedral manganese complexes in complexes a and b, respectively. The magnetic susceptibilities (χmol) of both crystals before and after irradiation were measured on a SQUID susceptometer and revealed χ(mol)T vs T plots characteristic of ferrimagnetic chains after irradiation for 97 h; interaction between the manganese(II) ion and the photogenerated carbene is antiferromagnetic in both complexes. The antiferromagnetic exchange coupling parameters (J) in the photolyzate of complex a and b were estimated by a theoretical treatment through a procedure of extrapolation by using small rings to be J/k(B) = -34.8 ± 0.8 and -24.4 ± 0.5 K, respectively. Maximum χ(mol)T values of 210 at 5 K for cis- and 246 emu·K·mol-1 at 1.9 K for trans complexes correspond to correlation lengths of 186 and 218 manganese-carbene S = 3/2 units, respectively..

The results are discussed based on the X-ray crystal structure..

Temperature dependence of the ESR signal intensities due to the triplet state revealed that bis(nitronyl nitroxide) radicals, 1N and 2N, are ground-state singlet species with quite small singlet-triplet gaps. In bis(imino nitroxide) radical 1I the spin interaction was antiferromagnetic and the singlet-triplet gap was estimated to be 2J/kB= -18 K. On the other hand, bis(imino nitroxide) 21 was revealed to be a singlet-triplet degenerate species. These results are discussed in terms of the intramolecular NO - S contact along with corroboration by the semi-empirical MO calculations..

In all crystals of four free radical species, the ON-C-NO moieties are in the same plane as the thienothiophene ring. The coplanarity is associated with the extremely short intramolecular contact between the oxygen atom in the NO group and the sulfur atom in the thienothiophene ring. The free radicals attached to thieno[3,2-b]thiophene are arranged in a chain structure with short intermolecular NO-S contacts, while the free radicals linked to thieno[2,3-b]thiophenes make dimers with a face-to-face pairing by the use of the NO-S contacts. Among four radical species, thieno[3,2-b]thiophene-substituted nitronyl nitroxide exhibits a weak ferromagnetic interaction (J = +0.11 K/kB, H = -2JSiSj) below 40 K as revealed by a SQUID susceptometer, while others are antiferromagnetic..
