The primary-amine-initiated polymerization of a-amino acid N-carboxyanhydride (NCA) is a widely-used and promising way to synthesize polypeptide-involved materials with various applications. The nucleophilic attack mechanism, also known as normal amine mechanism of ring opening reaction of NCA is investigated in detail by means of the DFT calculation in this work. Three steps, i.e., addition, ring opening and decarboxylation are discussed. The addition of C5 carbonyl group of NCA by NH2 group of initiator requires the highest activation energy (-60 kcal - mol - 1) and is regarded as the rate-determining step. These results are compatible with the experimental studies reported previously and provide an inside view of the normal amine mechanism. © 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Guide signs provide us with a remarkable amount of information about our surroundings and enables us to interact efficiently with the environment. In this paper, guidance system in a difined city scenario are explored in the image domain employing both color and gradient features. Specifically, color impression is exploited statistically based on a color difference model fusing human visual sensation and psychological perception of the designers and the guide-users. Furthermore, a gradient feature followed by a dimensionality reduction process is proposed for the deep feature extraction of signs. Our two sign features are complimentary, also of great potential for both designers and users to accomplish interaction with environment efficiently. Experiments are illustrated and the results validate our approach. © Zhuo Bian; Licensee Bentham Open.
