The data are presented as an excel file and comprise columns of the outlet concentrations of a number of gases (water, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ammonia) as analysed by FTIR at increasing reaction temperatures/times.

On the Derivation of Macroscopic Models for Compressible Viscoelastic Fluids using the Generalized Bracket Framework

Alexander T Mackay & Timothy N Phillips
The generalized bracket framework is used to derive a family of compressible viscoelastic models. The framework accounts for both reversible and non-reversible dynamics and ensures that the derived models are consistent with the laws of thermodynamics. The most general compressible forms of the UCM and Oldroyd B models are derived. For these models the elastic strain energy is taken to be that for a Hookean material. Nonlinear elastic strain energy functionals are also considered and...

Comparing the utility of different classification schemes for emotive language analysis

Lowri Williams, Irena Spasic, Andreas Artemiou & Miguel Arribas-Ayllon
We investigated the utility of different classification schemes for emotive language analysis. We compared six schemes: (1) Ekman's six basic emotions, (2) Plutchik's wheel of emotion, (3) Watson and Tellegen's Circumplex theory of affect, (4) the Emotion Annotation Representation Language (EARL), (5) WordNet-Affect, and (6) free text classification scheme. To measure their utility, we investigated their ease of use by human annotators as well as the performance of supervised machine learning when these schemes were...

Simultaneous neutron powder diffraction and microwave dielectric studies of ammonia absorption in metal–organic framework systems

Michael Barter, Adrian Porch, Ross S Forgan & Martin Owen Jones
Ammonia absorption has been investigated in metal–organic frameworks (UiO-67, HKUST-1 and CPO-27-Co) using custom-built apparatus that allows simultaneous neutron powder diffraction (NPD), microwave dielectric characterisation and out-gas mass spectroscopy of solid-state materials during ammonia adsorption. Deuterated ammonia was flowed through the sample and absorption monitored using mass flow meters and mass spectroscopy. Argon gas was then flowed through the ammoniated sample to cause ammonia desorption. Changes in structure found from NPD measurements were compared to...

Manganese-Catalyzed N-Alkylation of Sulfonamides Using Alcohols

Benjamin G Reed-Berendt & Louis C Morrill
An efficient manganese-catalyzed N-alkylation of sulfonamides has been developed. This borrowing hydrogen approach employs a well-defined and bench stable Mn(I) PNP pincer precatalyst, allowing benzylic and simple primary aliphatic alcohols to be employed as alkylating agents. A diverse range of aryl and alkyl sulfonamides undergoes mono-N-alkylation in excellent isolated yields (32 examples, 85% average yield). Analysis of reaction products from this methodology resulted in the following data: 1H, 19F and 13C NMR raw data files...

Methanol formation from CO2 catalyzed by Fe3S4{111}: formate versus hydrocarboxyl pathways

A Roldan & NH De Leeuw
We have carried out a systematic study of the adsorption and selective reduction of CO2 on the Fe3S4{111} surface. We have considered both formate and hydrocarboxyl key intermediates leading to different reaction pathways via Eley-Rideal and Langmuir-Hinshelwood mechanisms and we have built a kinetic model considering the wide range of intermediates in the reaction network. Our results show that the mechanism to produce formic acid takes place via a formate intermediate mostly on FeA sites,...

Study of NaVOPO4 Polymorphs as Cathode Materials for Na-ion Batteries

Pablo A Aparicio, James A Dawson, Mohammad S Islam & Nora H De Leeuw
Rechargeable sodium-ion batteries have gained considerable interest as potential alternatives to lithium-ion batteries, owing to their low cost and the wide abundance of sodium. Vanadium phosphates have shown high energy densities as cathode materials, but their Na-ion transport and cation doping properties are not as yet fully understood. Here, we have combined density functional theory calculations and molecular dynamics techniques to study the diffusion, electronic properties and cation doping behaviour of the a-, b- and...

Abdelaziz Cadi-Essadek, Alberto Roldan, Xavier Aparicio-Anglès & Nora H De Leeuw
To recycle CO2 into sustainable fuel and chemicals, co-electrolysis of CO2 and H2O can be achieved in solid oxide electrolysis cells, where the molecules are supplied to the Ni/YSZ electrode (YSZ = yttria-stabilized zirconia). We have investigated the interaction of a CO2 molecule with the clean YSZ(111) surface and with Nin/YSZ(111) (n =1, 4-7, 10, 20) interfaces, using spin polarized density functional theory (DFT) and long-range dispersion correction. In this work, we show that, although...

DFT+U Study of the electronic, magnetic and mechanical properties of Co, CoO, and Co3O4

Abdelaziz Cadi-Essadek, Alberto Roldan, David Santos Carballal, P E Ngoepe & Nora H De Leeuw
Cobalt nanoparticles play an important role as a catalyst in the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. During the reaction process, cobalt nanoparticles can become oxidised leading to the formation of two phases: CoO rock-salt and Co3O4 cubic spinel. It is therefore important to develop a fundamental description, at the atomic scale, of cobalt and its oxide phases which we have done here using density functional theory with the Dudarev approach to account for the on-site Coulomb interactions (DFT+U)....

Abdelaziz Cadi-Essadek, Alberto Roldan & Nora H De Leeuw
The performance of supported metal catalysts, such as nickel nanoparticles decorating yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ), depends on their microstructure and the metal-support interface. We have used spin polarized density functional theory (DFT) to evaluate the interaction of Nin (n=1-10) clusters with ZrO2(111) and YSZ(111) surfaces. The calculations were carried out using the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package (VASP). The data described here are: 1- the clustering energy, the cohesive energy, and the perpendicular interaction energy (of Nickel...

Structure-based design of allosteric calpain-1 inhibitors populating a novel bioactivity space

Leen Kalash, Joel Cresser-Brown, Johnny Habchi, Connor Morgan, David J Miller, Robert C Glen, Rudolf K Allemann & Andreas Bender
Dimeric calpains constitute a promising therapeutic target for many diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and ischaemic disease. The discovery of selective calpain inhibitors, however, has been extremely challenging. Previously, allosteric inhibitors of calpains, such as PD150606, which included a specific α-mercaptoacrylic acid sub-structure, were reported to bind to the penta-EF hand calcium binding domain, PEF(S) of calpain. Although these are selective to calpains over other cysteine proteases, their mode of action has remained elusive due...
