charge transfer complex

(redirected from Charge transfer complexes)

charge trans·fer com·plex

1. a complex between two organic molecules in which an electron from one (the donor) is transferred to the other (the acceptor); subsequent transfer of a hydrogen atom completes the reduction of the acceptor; such complexes are generally highly colored and may be so observed;
2. a network of hydrogen bridges at the catalytic center of certain proteases.

The widely recognised particular interactions are hydrogen bonds, however other possible interactions to deliberate are ionic, dipole-dipole, acid-base, cation- p (cations interacting through aromatic rings) and charge transfer complexes [7, 8].

Ferrocene is known to readily form charge transfer complexes (CTCs) with alkyl halides, as evidenced by the appearance of a feature indicative of a charge transfer complex at ~310 nm; subsequently, upon irradiation, the complex dissociates into the ferrocenium ion, chloride ion, and alkyl radical (Fig.
I developed Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facilities for the department, and worked on hydrogen bonding, charge transfer complexes, and structural chemistry (with Stan Tarbell, a leader in antibiotics chemistry).

Regarding pharmaceutical chemistry, quantification of drug can be monitored by charge transfer complexes [4].
Therefore, it is of much importance and interesting to study the charge transfer complexes of drugs with various I or I-acceptors for qualitative and quantitative analysis of drugs in their pure form as well as in pharmaceutical formulations[15].
Furthermore, solid charge transfer complexes were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy.
Out of five newly formed charge transfer complexes, desloratadine and levocetirizine with curcumin appeared as deep red and pale yellow respectively, whereas promethazine, loratadine and diphenhydramine had yellowish-orange colour nearly similar to each other.
We have described a spectrophotometric method to determine five antihistaminic drugs (promethazine, desloratadine, levocetirizine, diphenhydramine and loratadine) via analysing their charge transfer complexes with curcumin in active pharmaceutical ingredients.
