     View Summary

    A series of zirconium β-diketonates, i.e., tris(acetylacetonato)zirconium(IV) chloride (1), tris(benzoylacetonato)zirconium(IV) chloride (2), tris(dibenzoylmethanato)zirconium(IV) chloride (3), and tris(benzoyltrifluoroacetonato)zirconium(IV) chloride (4) work as efficient catalysts in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of ε-caprolactone (ε-CL) to generate poly(ε-CL) with repeating unit up to 68. The activity of the complexes was in the order of 2 > 4 > 1 > 3, with more Lewis acidic complexes 2 and 4 gave higher catalytic activity. DFT calculations showed that a trifluoromethyl moiety in the ligand decreases the oxygen nucleophilicity at intermediate complexes, and thus inhibiting the propagation process. Three possible states of the complex before ε-CL coordination in the ROP were proposed as follows: (i) dissociation of one ligand; (ii) dissociation of one coordinated-oxygen of the ligand from zirconium and (iii) direct insertion of sp2-oxygen of ε-CL into Zr (no change of the complex geometry). The thermodynamic analysis via the Gibbs energy calculations at DFT level revealed that a direct insertion of sp2-oxygen of ε-CL into zirconium is the most plausible pathway for the ROP.

    Abstract

    Carbon capture and utilization is a strategy to reduce CO2 emission by utilizing it to synthesize fine chemicals. Mg-MOF-74 exhibits exceptional CO2 adsorption capacity and functions as a catalyst in styrene carbonate (SC) synthesis from CO2 and styrene oxide (SO). We examined the structural properties and energetics of SC synthesis in Mg-MOF-74 at the third-order density-functional tight-binding level. A novel reaction mechanism via the formation of a seven-membered ring intermediate was found to exhibit a lower Gibbs activation energy than the previously proposed mechanism.

     View Summary

    As optical properties, the ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) absorption spectra of capsanthin-based red natural dye are a decisive parameter for their usage in various applications. Thus, accurately predicting the maximum UV-Vis wavelength ( λ max ) values is critical in designing dye-conjugated material. Extensive metadynamics simulations were carried out to generate capsanthin conformers at various levels of the extended tight-binding method. Benchmarking the time-dependent density-functional theory (TD-DFT) methods help understand the results of a particular functional and allows a comparison between results obtained with different functional. The long-range correction (LC) scheme in LC-TD-DFT-D4/ωB97X/def2-SVP has been found to reproduce the experimental λ max , and exhibited the effect of conformational changes to the calculated wavelengths. On the other hand, an inexpensive yet efficient LC-TD-DFTB method reproduced the experimental λ max insensitive to conformational changes.

     View Summary

    The aqueous sodium-ion battery is a promising alternative to the well-known lithium-ion battery owing to the large abundance of sodium ion resources. Although it is safer than the lithium-ion battery, the voltage window of the sodium-ion battery is narrower than that of the lithium-ion battery, thus limiting its practical implementation. Therefore, a highly concentrated electrolyte is required to address this issue. In the present work, the effect of the salt concentration on the transport properties of water molecules is investigated via theoretical analyses at the quantum mechanical level. A molecular dynamics simulation at the quantum mechanical level revealed that as the salt concentration increases, the ion-water interactions became stronger, leading to a lower diffusivity and a lower electronic band gap. These imply that the superconcentrated aqueous-based electrolytes have high potentials for the sodium-ion battery applications.

     View Summary

    Water confined within one-dimensional (1D) hydrophobic nanochannels has attracted significant interest due to its unusual structure and dynamic properties. As a representative system, water-filled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are generally studied, but direct observation of the crystal structure and proton transport is difficult for CNTs due to their poor crystallinity and high electron conduction. Here, we report the direct observation of a unique water-cluster structure and high proton conduction realized in a metal-organic nanotube, [Pt(dach)(bpy)Br]4(SO4)4·32H2O (dach: (1R, 2R)-(-)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane; bpy: 4,4'-bipyridine). In the crystalline state, a hydrogen-bonded ice nanotube composed of water tetramers and octamers is found within the hydrophobic nanochannel. Single-crystal impedance measurements along the channel direction reveal a high proton conduction of 10-2 Scm-1. Moreover, fast proton diffusion and continuous liquid-to-solid transition are confirmed using solid-state 1H-NMR measurements. Our study provides valuable insight into the structural and dynamical properties of confined water within 1D hydrophobic nanochannels.

     View Summary

    The density-functional tight-binding (DFTB) method is one of the useful quantum chemical methods, which provides a good balance between accuracy and computational efficiency. In this account, we reviewed the basis of the DFTB method, the linear-scaling divide-and-conquer (DC) technique, as well as the parameterization process. We also provide some refinement, modifications, and extension of the existing parameters that can be applicable for lithium-ion battery systems. The diffusion constants of common electrolyte molecules and LiTFSA salt in solution have been estimated using DC-DFTB molecular dynamics simulation with our new parameters. The resulting diffusion constants have good agreement to the experimental diffusion constants.

     View Summary

    Abstract

    Divide-and-conquer-type density-functional tight-binding molecular dynamics simulations of the CO2 absorption process in monoethanolamine (MEA) solution have been performed for systems containing thousands of atoms. The formation of carbamate anions has been widely investigated for neutral systems via ab initio molecular dynamics simulations, yet the present study is aimed at identifying the role of hydroxide ions in acid-base equilibrium. The structural and electronic analyses reveal that the hydroxide ion approaches, via Grotthuss-type shuttling, the zwitterionic intermediates and abstracts a proton from the nitrogen atom of MEA. We also estimated the fraction of reacted CO2 and carbamate formed at different initial CO2 concentrations that confirm a high absorbed CO2 concentration decreases the fraction of MEA(C) formed due to the abundance of MEA(Z) in the solution.

     View Summary

    In the first year of the Tokutei-kadai project, we implemented the algorithm to scan the geometries and elucidate reaction pathways and mechanisms in the computational molecular and material design environment (CMMDE) code. The CMMDE code was used alongside Grimme's extended tight-binding (xTB) method and Gaussian 16 software to further determine the transition state structures reported in other systems than the planned nickel catalyst complexes. The nickel catalyst complexes were also prepared, however, the pathways are being analyzed. Despite other catalysts being used, we still utilized, e.g., the lactone derivatives, capsanthin, and theaflavin were extracted from the biomass. Research collaborations with Bandung Institute of Technology and IPB University in Indonesia were carried out. We preliminarily evaluated our developed software for the following research topics:- Ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone by Zr(IV) tris (β-diketonates): Electronic character of complexes in initiation and propagation steps. The CMMDE code that will be evaluated for the nickel complex systems was tested for the zirconium complex systems. The reaction mechanism was successfully elucidated and the ring-opening polymerization for the case of fluorine-containing catalyst was theoretically proved to inhibit the propagation process during the polymerization. This fact agrees well with the experiment.- The CMMDE code was also used to predict molecular conformations of capsanthin via the genetic Z-matrix algorithm implemented in an extensive metadynamics sampling scheme. The employed scheme was efficiently employed to screen the top 10 of the most stable conformations, among thousands of possible conformations. In this case, before performing the TD-DFT calculations, the structures were preliminarily optimized by using the developed CMMDE code.- Molecular dynamics modules in the developed code were also used in a collaborated research on synthesizing solid polymer electrolytes based on carboxymethyl cellulose complexed with lithium acetate salt as a lithium-ion battery separator. A master course student was also involved in this project. All calculated diffusion coefficients in this work were calculated by using our in-house CMMDE code.-  As a promising biomass resource, theaflavin-based compounds (extracted from tea) were modified to be implemented in the dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) application. This project is a collaborative theoretical work with the IPB University, Indonesia. Although unrelated to the furfuryl alcohol synthesis, this project used the CMMDE code as an evaluation for further development in nickel-based catalysis. Overall, the progress on the code development for analyzing the molecular mechanism as well as molecular properties prediction has been very fruitful.
