    For a oligonucleotid with a self-complementary sequence when base pairing antiparallel, how could we relate the equilibrium constant with the meltingpoint temperature and total amount of nucleotid \(C_{T}\) @aaronq

    yeah, you should search it on google, a lot of interesting websites came up. I've, myself, never done this, but it sure is interesting.

    I wish to derive the expression: \[\LARGE \frac{ 1 }{ T_{m} }=\frac{ R }{ \Delta H^\Theta } \ln(C_{T})+\frac{ \Delta S^\Theta }{ \Delta H^\Theta }\]

    well they said they're assuming no partial binding states, \(T_m\) being defined as 1/2 of \(C_T\) being unhybridized, it makes sense that the total amount is divided by 2.

    yeah, that seems reasonable, but you have to take into account the definition of \(T_m\), where half is bound, half unbound

    I just define it from the gibbs energy and say that K is meassured at the meltingpoint T_m. I guess?

    Okay I give it total new try from the van Holff equation \[\LARGE \left( \frac{ \partial \ln(K) }{ \partial T } \right)_{p}=\frac{ \Delta H }{ RT^2 }\] \[\Large \left( \frac{ \partial \ln(K) }{ \partial T } \right)_{p} = \frac{ \Delta H }{ RT^2 } \rightarrow \int\limits_{T}^{T _{M}} \partial \ln(K)=\int\limits_{T}^{T _{M}}\frac{ \Delta H }{ RT^2 }\partial T\] \[\Large \left[ \partial \ln(K) \right]_{T}^{T _{M}}=-\left[ \frac{ \Delta H }{ R }T^{-1} \right]_{T}^{T _{M}}\]

    |dw:1386772266680:dw| Lets look at the reaction: \[\LARGE \sf M+M \leftrightharpoons D\] with the belong equlibriumconstant: \[\Large K=\frac{ \left[ D \right] }{ \left[ M \right]^{2} }\] The total concentration most be: \[\Large C _{T}=[D]+2 \times [M]\] From the drawing we define the meltingpoint ( @aaronq as you suggested) \[\Large [M]=2 \times [D]=C _{T}/2\] \[\Large K(T _{M})=\frac{ [D] }{ [M]^{2} }=\frac{ C _{T}/4 }{ (C_{T}/2)^{2} }=\frac{ 1 }{ C _{T} }\]

    that seems right, dude. Do you think writing the equation as \(D\rightleftharpoons M +M \) then using the \(K_D=\dfrac {[M]^2}{[D]}\) would make a difference?

    I suppose, I only know that if you substitute the expression for the equilibrium constant into the evaluated integral you get to derive the equation I wanted. (I can upload the results if any interest)

    i think you made a small mistake in step 9, inside the bracket it should be \(ln(C^{-1}_T)-\dfrac{\Delta H\color{red}-T\Delta S-\Delta H }{RT}=-ln(C_T)+\dfrac{\Delta S}{R}\)

    I've remember that minus sign? I started by multiplying into the bracket instead of evaluating it.

    \(-\dfrac{R}{\Delta H}( ln(C^{-1}_T)-\dfrac{\Delta H-T\Delta S-\Delta H }{RT})\) distribute the minus \(-\dfrac{R}{\Delta H}( ln(C^{-1}_T)+\dfrac{-\Delta H+T\Delta S + \Delta H }{RT})\) \(-\dfrac{R}{\Delta H}( ln(C^{-1}_T)+\dfrac{T\Delta S}{RT})\) \(-\dfrac{R}{\Delta H}(- ln(C_T)+\dfrac{\Delta S}{R})\) \(\dfrac{R}{\Delta H}ln(C_T)-\dfrac{\Delta S}{\Delta H}\) (10)
