Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.

Observing Condensed Phase Movement

Of the CBPQT4+ ring from one recognition site to another resulted from the introduction of the oxidizing agent Fe(ClO4)3 into the aqueous subphase of the Langmuir trough. The switching process was observed statically by measuring relative differences in the intensity of N1s nuclei which are only present in the CBPQT4+ ring and by comparing the photoemission of LB films prepared with Fe(ClO4)3 to films without it in the subphase. The changes in intensity correspond to a difference in height of 14 A between the position of the ring in the two different systems, directly supporting the hypothesis that the ring switches between upper and lower recognition sites on the dumbbell in a closely packed monolayer as a result of the introduction of a chemical oxidant. and operation have been reviewed extensively70,82,95 and will not be discussed in great detail here. A brief description, however, of those aspects relevant to this discussion will be made. The MSTJs investigated contained a...

Related Molecular Structures

Molecular Abacus An abacus is a manual computing device that consists of a frame holding parallel rods strung with movable beads, which serve as counters. When comparing this structure with that of a rotaxane, it is easy to see the correlation between the two. For this reason rotaxanes have begun to form the basis for molecular level abacuses. One example is provided by Ashton et al. 31 The 2 rotaxane is composed of a n-electron-donating macrocyclic polyether bis-p-phenylene-34-crown-10 and a dumbbell-shaped component that contains (1) a Ru11 polypyridine complexes as one of its stoppers in the form of a photoactive unit, (2) a p-terphenyl-type ring system as a rigid spacer, (3) a 4,4'-bipyridinium unit and a 3,3'-dimethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium unit as n-electron accepting stations, and (4) a tetraarylmethane group as the second stopper. The ring component or counter can be induced by light excitation to move between two different recognition sites or stations on the dumbbell-shaped...

Interlocked and Interwinded Molecules

Rotaxane, catenane, and pseudorotaxane are those for the former cases (interlocked) (Balzani et al., 2000) and knotane (Lukin and Vogtle, 2005) is for the latter case (interwinded). Rotaxane is a molecule that is composed of a macro-cyclic component and a dumbbell-shaped component that are interlocked with each other. Catenane is a molecule composed of two interlocked macrocyclic components, not covalently but geometrically. Pseudorotaxane is a molecule composed of a macrocyclic and a linear-shaped component. These pre-self-assembled molecules have a unique nanometer range of space within their

Design Aspects and Critical Parameters of Micro Heat Pipes

And capacitive microsensor arrays are installed along the heat pipes to monitor the temperature levels. A thin nitride membrane as shown in Figure 8.11 is provided to cover the heat pipes to visualize the two-phase flow patterns inside the pipes. The central sensing region of the device with an area of 6 x 4 mm2 is lightly doped, while the remaining portions of the dumbbell are heavily doped. The electronic signals are transmitted from the metal lines installed on the silicon substrate to metal lines on the glass as illustrated in Figure 8.11. Both the nitride film or layer and the glass substrate provide good insulation between the top electrodes of the distributed capacitors. The length of the top electrode must be as small as possible. The capacitive sensor fabricated on the glass wafer provides much lower parasitic capacitance leading to improved sensor sensitivity.

Encapsulated Metallic Nanowires

As was mentioned earlier, CHQ nanotubes arrays can be utilized in promising templates for nanosynthesis. Redox reaction of the nanotube in the presence of silver nitrate leads to the formation of a silver nanowire arrays in the pores (pore size of 8 x 8 A2) of the CHQ nanotube. The wires exist as uniformly oriented three-dimensional arrays of ultrahigh density. The driving force for the formation of these nanowires is the free energy gain due to the reduction-oxidation process. 64,65 The resulting nanowire is composed of four dumbbells, each of which contains two silver atoms, superimposed on one another and crisscrossed in their length.

Lattice Imaging or Atomic Imaging

Further misleading complications are likely to arise in thicker crystals because of dynamical multiple scattering. As the sample thickness is increased, intensity will be progressively lost from the directly transmitted beam, and it will instead build up in the diffracted beams. Eventually, a thickness is reached where the direct beam will be relatively low in intensity (in the vicinity of what is termed the thickness extinction contour), and the resulting image will be dominated by (second-order) interference processes between the various diffracted beams. In some small-unit-cell materials, these interferences can often lead to pairs of white spots, graphically referred to as dumbbells, which appear to portray faithfully all atom positions in the unit cell 30 . Except under highly specific thickness and defocus values, it has been found that the separation

Synthesis of C60 Dimer C120

The reaction of cyanide ion with C60 in a solution of o-dichlorobenzene (ODCB)-DMF gives a stable (CN)C-0 anion, which can be quenched with various electrophiles to afford cyanated C60 derivatives 46 . In sharp contrast to the reaction in liquid phase, the solid-state reaction of C60 with KCN under HSVM conditions for 30 min unexpectedly and selectively afforded the formal 2 + 2 -type dimer C120 (6) in 18 other than the cyanated C60 derivative 5, along with 70 of unconsumed C60 (Fig. 2) 47 . The X-ray crystal structure unequivocally showed that the dumbbell-shaped C120 is connected by a cyclobutane ring and this four-membered ring is square rather than rectangular as predicted theoretically. Furthermore, the 2 + 2 structure of C120 is stable and does not rearrange to other C120 isomers such as those with peanuts-shaped structure.

Models from Nature and BottomUp Assembly

Among the many designs for externally controllable molecular machines are molecular shuttles, switches, muscles, nanovalves, rotors, and surfaces with controlled wettability (Figure 11.3). Molecular shuttles are molecules wherein a ring component and a dumbbell component are mechanically interlocked and, thus, are considered 2 rotaxanes. The presence of two identical recognition sites that are capable of becoming complexed by the ring component through noncovalent interactions located on the dumbbell component results in what is referred to as a degenerate molecular shuttle. The thermally activated movement of the ring component between the identical sites along the dumbbell exchanges the two coconformations that the molecule is capable of adopting and is referred to as shuttling. The incorporation of two different recognition sites into the dumbbell gives rise to a molecular switch. With the appropriate external stimulus, a molecular switch is capable of being selectively stimulated...

Bistable [2Rotaxanes

One of the most interesting variations of the 2 rotaxane structure is the bistable form (Figure 11.6), which undergoes redox-controlled mechanical actuation, either chemically or electrochemically, causing the ring component to move along the dumbbell between two different molecular recognition units.64-71 In such a nondegenerate 2 rotaxane, two different coconformations are said to exist and there is an equilibrium between having the ring positioned at one recognition site or the other. The ratio of the two different coconformations (N) depends on the difference in free energy72-74 (AAG ) with which either recognition site is bound by the ring. In the case of a bistable 2 rotaxane composed of a CBPQT4+ ring and a dumbbell containing the n-electron-rich recognition sites DNP and TTF, the CBPQT4+ ring, at equilibrium, interacts preferentially with the TTF site, resulting in the ground state coconformation (GSCC). However, because this is a system in dynamic equilibrium, in some of the...


Electrochemically Induced Switching A rotaxane system described by Bissell et al. 21 has been shown to exhibit electrochemical switching. The dumbbell-shaped component of this system contains two recognition sites, one a benzidine and the other a biphenol unit. This system exhibits translation isomerism with the macrocycle located preferentially on the benzidine unit, the more w-electron rich station. However, electrochemical oxidation of the benzidine unit converts it to the monocationic radical state, and as a result of the repulsive electrostatic interactions, the macrocycle with its four formal positive charges moves to the biphenol unit. This redox system is completely reversible upon electrochemical reduction.

Ray Diffraction

Since the first synthesis of C60 by Kratschmer and co-workers 2 , it has been observed that C60 is difficult to obtain in an ordered single crystalline form. This also has been the case for their derivatives. Luckily, C120 (2) can be obtained in an ordered single crystalline form its structure was proven by single-crystal analysis, and consists of two fullerene cages bonded through a four-membered ring at the 6 6 position (i.e., at the connection between two hexagons in a fullerene framework). We note that the cage-cage distance is slightly longer, at 0.1575 nm, than a usual sp3-sp3 bond. The shape of C120 caused it to be dubbed a dumbbell, and this compound is thought to be the repetitive unit of a type of


Several different schemes have now been reported for producing a rotaxane that undergoes shuttling action in response to an external stimulus. In 1991 one of the first functional molecular shuttles produced in reasonable yields was reported by Anelli and co-workers 11 . It is a 2 rotax-ane containing a linear dumbbell-shaped component, possessing two w-electron rich hydroquinone rings separated by a polyether chain, and terminated by two bulky triisopropy-lsilyl groups as stoppers. A cyclic tetracationic cyclophane threaded onto the dumbbell component completes the system. The tetracationic cyclophane component shuttles back and forth between the two hydroquinone rings. This molecular shuttle was proposed as a prototype in designing more intricate systems in which different stations were inserted onto the dumbbell component. These different stations would act to desymmetrize the system so that they could be addressed selectively by chemical, electrochemical, or photochemical means....
