      Aimed at solving continuous optimum parameter problems effectively in added drug design, this paper develops a novel ant algorithm termed continuous gridded ant colony (CGAC), where the spy ants are utilized to search the latent optimum grid in the domain completely and effectively. The CGAC algorithm was successful in finding the best values of C and γ, when the support vector machine (SVM) was used to fit the nonlinear relationship between the numerical representation of the chemical structure and IC50. The results demonstrate that the proposed CGAC algorithm provides a new and effective method to find the optimum parameters when the SVM tool is used.

      A Tri-µ-O-S-O coordinative manganese dimer: [Mn2(SO4)2(phen)4]· CH3OH (phen[DOUBLE BOND]1,10-phenanthroline) (1) was yielded by the reaction of 1,10-phenanthroline and MnSO4·H2O in a mixed solvent of methanol and acetonitrile under room temperature and was structurally characterized. Single crystal analysis shows that complex 1 has polymeric structure based on binuclear Mn(II) units bridged by O-S-O groups of two SO42− anion. The UV spectrum of the complex clarifies that each metal-organic building unit parallels with each other through the Π-Π interactions of face-to-face separations of two 1,10-phen planes among the complex, forming a layered structure. And the electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signal clearly indicates that those manganese atoms in complex 1 are in +2 oxidation states.

      The structures and stabilities of the endohedral complexes X2−@Si20F20 (X=O, S, Se) were determined at the B3LYP/6-31G(d) levels of density functional theory. The calculations predict that X=S and Se are nearly located at the center of the cage, and O dramatically deviates from the center in C3v symmetry. The corresponding X2−@Si20F20 complexes have more negative inclusion energies and thermodynamic parameters than X2−@C20F20. The amount of charge that is being transferred from the encapsulated anions to the cage increases with the atomic radius, i.e., from O2− (ca. 45%), S2− (ca. 51%) to Se2− (ca. 59%).

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Steric hindrance of 3′-linked pendant, benzoaza-15-crown-5 or morpholine, is probably the main reason for the 1.2–1.7 fold activity difference between the two Schiff base manganese(III) complexes in the hydrolysis of p-nitrophenyl picolinate. Molecular mimic calculation (MMC) using Gaussian 03 software provides correlative information for the open level of the inner metal centra, implying it is indeed a key process that substrate efficiently links with the central manganese inside complex.

      New cycloaddition has been established for the synthesis of indoline-spiro benzofurodiazepine derivatives. Those reactions were conducted by reacting readily available and inexpensive starting materials, such as benzene-1,2-diamines, tetronic acid and indoline-2,3-diones, in aqueous solution under microwave irradiation. When mono-substituted benzene-1,2-diamines as an amine component was employed, the reaction regioselectively resulted in the poly-functionalized indoline-spiro benzofurodiazepine with good yields. The present green synthesis shows attractive characteristics such as the use of water as reaction media, concise one-pot conditions, short reaction periods, easy work-up/purification and reduced waste production without the use of any strong acids or metal promoters.
