We study the mathematical solutions to the kinetic equations arising from various simple ligand-receptor [corrected] models. Focusing on the prediction of the various models for the activity vs. concentration curve, we find that solutions to the kinetic equations arising from the so-called dimer model exhibit features observed in some experiments, most… (More)
National surveillance programs on antimicrobial usage and antimicrobial resistance in animals have been established in various countries but few of them include bacteria from pets. The objectives of this study were to assess the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance in healthy dogs and to search for resistance phenotypes of clinical relevance. Escherichia… (More)
A 'Se'lling point: The first thermally induced OAr →SeAr migration reaction is reported, and it can be used to prepare aryl selenols in three steps from the corresponding phenols. O-aryl selenocarbamates rearrange to Se-aryl carbamates via a four-membered transition state. The aryl selenols (isolated as the diselenides) can be prepared by hydrolysis of the… (More)
Flexibility in pseudorotaxanes and interlocked molecules that rely on interactions between π-donor-acceptor subunits provides access to folded structures reminiscent of the tertiary structure of proteins. While they have been described before, only now have we been able to quantify one such tertiary structure by making use of pseudorotaxanes designed for… (More)
Be my guest: The function of a system based on self-assembled Zn(II) complexes can be controlled by external chemical stimuli. The complexes are based on a C3 -symmetric ligand that forms a unique triangular triple helicate structure 1. Upon subcomponent substitution, 1 is able to transform into a triangular double helicate 2 which, unlike 1, can… (More)
Pressure not only influences the yield in the synthesis of a two-station rotaxane, it also determines the distribution of the co-conformational isomers. At high pressure cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) is preferentially assembled around a monopyrrolotetrathiafulvalene unit, while at low pressure it is preferentially assembled around a hydroquinone unit.
Herein we showcase the use of a combination of (1)H, (13)C, and (77)Se NMR spectroscopy as a sensitive tool for correlation analysis. A series of substituted O-aryl selenocarbamates [ArOC(Se)N(CH3)2] and Se-aryl selenocarbamates [ArSeC(O)N(CH3)2] have been investigated by means of (1)H, (13)C, and (77)Se NMR spectroscopy. We have determined the (1)H, (13)C,… (More)
Binding studies between the electron accepting host cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) and a series of electron donors in the presence of differently sized counteranions reveal that both the nature and the concentration of the anion have a large impact on the association strength of the resulting host-guest complex.
Diselenide exchange is introduced as a reversible reaction in dynamic combinatorial chemistry in water. At neutral pH, diselenides are found to mix with disulfides and form dynamic combinatorial libraries of diselenides, disulfides, and selenenylsulfides.
Pigeon droppings were collected in Copenhagen and Odense. In samples from pigeon lofts, cryptococci were found in 33% from Copenhagen and in 16% from Odense. All of the species of cryptococci found were Cr. neoformans. These findings are compared with the previous Danish investigations. The frequent occurrence of cryptococci in AIDS patients is mentioned.
