Wrap disruption or intrathoracic herniat ion of a fundoplication is a dreaded complication of laparoscopic foregut surgery. This problem may often be related to postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). This study aimed to investigate the occurrence of PONV and its management in patients undergoing laparoscopic foregut procedures. Between January 31 and May(More)
A differential pulse polarographic procedure was developed for the assay of dimercaptosuccinic acid and tin(II), components of a commercially available pharmaceutical kit for kidney scintigraphy. The method is quantitative and qualitative for both the chelated and unchelated forms of dimercaptosuccinic acid and tin(II) in a mixture of the two.
A combination of Pd(2)(dba)(3) and SPhos (1:2 molar ratio) is an excellent precatalyst for the Negishi cross-coupling of the serine-derived organozinc reagent 2 with aryl halides, including previously difficult ortho-substituted examples. In the case of meta- and para-substituted aryl halides, Pd-loadings of 0.5 mol % give satisfactory results. Use of(More)
The structure of the alkylzinc-tetramethylethyl-enediamine (TMEDA) cluster cation 3 has been determined in the gas phase by a combination of tandem mass spectrometry, infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) spectroscopy, and DFT calculations. Both sets of experimental results establish the existence of a strongly stabilizing interaction of TMEDA with the(More)
The results of a kinetic and mechanistic study of the hydrolysis of a new antiarrhythmic agent, cibenzoline, are reported. The reaction is subject to specific base catalysis which proceeds via the protonated cibenzolinium ion. No evidence for the existence of a "pseudobase"-type intermediate could be found. The results support only one of two different(More)
With increasing amounts of electroinactive amitriptyline, each of the three chlordiazepoxide reduction waves shifted to more cathodic half-wave potentials and decreased in limiting current. The shift was most pronounced up the 1:1 mole ratio but continued up to ratios of 200:1. This behavior was observed in several supporting electrolytes and was not due to(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the analysis of carprofen in solid dosage forms and as the bulk drug substance was developed. The simple, accurate, reproducible, and stability-indicating method was shown to be applicable to drug substance and dosage form stability studies, as well as the quality control of carprofen dosage forms.
An amperometric flow-through detector with a carbon paste working electrode was utilized as a high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) detector to determine procarbazine hydrochloride, an antineoplastic agent, in both buffer solution and biological fluids. The HPLC system included an amino-cyano stationary phase and an aqueous (pH 7)-methanolic mobile(More)
Addition of (S)-(+)-tert-butyl 2-(iodomethyl)pyrrolidine-1-carboxylate to activated zinc, aryl halides, and a catalyst derived from Pd(2)(dba)(3) (2.5 mol %) and SPhos (5 mol %) in DMF allows trapping of the corresponding organozinc reagent, with formation of Boc-protected 2-benzylpyrrolidines (20-72%).
