In contrast with entanglement, as measured by concurrence, in general, quantum discord does not possess the property of monogamy; that is, there is no tradeoff between the quantum discord shared by a pair of subsystems and the quantum discord that both of them can share with a third party. Here, we show that, as far as monogamy is considered, quantum discord of pure states is equivalent to the entanglement of formation. This result allows one to analytically prove that none of the pure three-qubit states belonging to the subclass of W states is monogamous. A suitable physical interpretation of the meaning of the correlation information as a quantifier of monogamy for the total information is also given. Finally, we prove that, for rank 2 two-qubit states, discord and classical correlations are bounded from above by single-qubit von Neumann entropies. © 2011 American Physical Society. Source

Coordination Chemistry Reviews | Year: 2013

Supramolecular chemistry of anions is a topic of continuous interest due to vital role of anions in many key chemical and biological processes. The dominant functional groups for constructing anion binding receptors are amides and amines/ammonium cations, where the key interaction to bind the anion is the hydrogen bond. This review covers systems where the binding of the anion with the receptor is through anion-π interactions, i.e., the non-covalent forces between electron-deficient aromatic systems and anions. Moreover, this review is focused to those receptors where coordination metals play a prominent role thanks to two very important characteristics: first, they are crucial for the synthesis and assembly of the receptor and, secondly, they strongly change the π-binding ability of the aromatic ligands, increasing significantly their π-acidity and, consequently, enhancing the ability of the ring to interact favorably with anions. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
