Geomagnetic Storms are planet-wide disturbances of the Earth’s magnetic field. These storms are closely related with solar activity events, and could have catastrophic effects on systems such satellites, GPS systems, loss of electrical power, and irreversible damage to transformers and power stations. The overall objective of this project was to describe the response of our local ionosphere (described by foF2 and TEC) to geomagnetic activity (index ap), which depends on solar activity events. To fulfill our objective in this project, we used ionospheric data for TEC, foF2, and geomagnetic ap index for year 2015. The quiet values for foF2 and TEC were generated from the IRI (International Reference Ionosphere), with the latitude and longitude coordinates corresponding to St. Thomas University, FL. The foF2 disturbed values were obtained from the iono-sounder at the Eglin Air Force Base (EAFB). The TEC disturbed values and geomagnetic ap index were downloaded from the NGDC database (NOAA’s National Geophysical Datacenter). Each event is identified when ap values reached or went over 100 nT, resulting in 6 independent events being recorded. Finally, we created a script to organize and compare our values. We found that for Equinox and Summer events (1 to 5), the ionospheric parameters suffer a depletion when compared with the quiet reference, indicating a more active recombination process due to the presence of fresh molecular mass. For winter conditions (Event 6) the ionospheric parameters increase over the quiet mean, corresponding with a prevalence of atomic elements, resulting in a less predominant recombination process. These results agree with previously published studies of mid to mid-low ionosphere.

Dimers Derived From Densely Substituted Unnatural Prolines As Precursors Of γ‑Peptides And Their Use In Organocatalysis
, , ,

The synthesis of novel hybrid ferrocenylpyrrolidine ligands La* and Lb* via [3+2] cycloadditions has been described by our group.1 Both ligands in turn provided densely substituted unnatural L- and D- proline derivatives in a stereodivergent manner. The powerful feature of having nitro and ester groups gives the opportunity to orthogonally synthesize different γ-proline oligopeptides with different substitution patterns and chiral centers. Supported by the efficiency of Proline‑based organocatalysts in numerous chemical transformations, our densely substituted pyrrolidine derivatives have been used in aldol reactions with good results.1,2 In this communication, we present our results on the structure/activity relationship of the new generation of oligomeric catalysts. The main conclusion is that in the case of the g-dipeptides, the stereochemistry of the aldol adducts depends on both monomeric units in a nearly additive manner.

MOL2NET Welcome Message by Prof. Marcus Tullius Scotti, Audio: Portuguese

Mensagem do Prof. Scotti

Olá. Sou Marcus Tullius Scotti, professor da Universidade Federal da Paraíba e coordeno um grupo de pesquisa na área de quimioinformática...
Gostaria de convidá-los à conferência internacional MOL2NET, que ocorrerá 15-30 novembro de 2015, online na plataforma SciForum.
O título completo desta conferência é “1st International Conference on Synergies of Experimental Groups of Molecular and Biomedical Sciences with Data, Networks, and Social Sciences Experts”.
Este congresso possibilitará colaborações nas áreas multidisciplinares entre experimentalistas e cientistas teóricos. As disciplinas representadas irão abranger as ciências moleculares , biomédicas e análises de redes sociais.
Mais especificamente, esta conferência visa promover sinergias entre grupos de cientistas experimental moleculares e bio-médicoss como de outros campos relevantes que incluem química, farmacologia, pesquisa do câncer, proteomica, ciências neurais, nanociência, e epidemiologia.
Além disso, será bem vindo a conferência os especialistas nas áreas de ciências computacionais e sociais de diferentes áreas, tais como química computacional, bioinformática, análises de redes sociais, análise preditiva de grande volume de dados “big data”, bioestatística entre outras.
O grupo de pesquisa que coordeno trabalha com os mais variados métodos computacionais relacionados a extração de informações e padrões. Desde que os produtos naturais são uma importante fonte de estruturas com grande diversidade e portanto inspiração para muitos fármacos utilizados atualmente. Os estudos do nosso grupo tem como objetivo geral criar e utilizar diversas ferramentas para gerenciar dados de metabólitos secundários para identificar e compreender os padrões estruturais e físico-químicos responsáveis por diversas atividades biológicas, para auxiliar a assim, bioprospecção.
Convido a todos a participar no MOL2NET.
Nos vemos em novembro!
