US and British forces used depleted uranium (DU) in armor-piercing rounds to disable enemy tanks during the Gulf and Balkan Wars. Uranium particulate is generated by DU shell impact and particulate entrained in air may be inhaled or ingested by troops and nearby civilian populations. As uranium is slightly radioactive and chemically toxic, a number of(More)
Products formed in-vitro from ampicillin and amoxycillin penicilloates have been examined by high-performance liquid chromatography, ultraviolet and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and thiol group determination and were found to be the 5S epimers of the penicilloic acids. This is in contrast to a published claim that the corresponding penamaldic(More)
The degradation of several penicillins in unbuffered aqueous solution produces N-formylpenicillamine, in some cases in high yield. Very little or no penicillamine is formed under these conditions. N-Formylpenicillamine was produced from benzylpenicillin at pH values between 2.5 and 7, with a maximum yield of 30% at pH 5, whereas penicillamine was produced(More)
