A general deterioration is occurring in the quality of life of rural Americans, and it is affecting the quality of health and mental health service delivery. About 24% of the U.S. population lives in nonmetropolitan areas where the citizens are older, less well educated, have lower incomes, and are more homogeneous in terms of race and ethnicity.

A new ion mobility/time-of-flight mass spectrometer employing a high-pressure MALDI source has been designed and tested. The prototype instrument operates at a source/drift cell pressure of 1-10 Torr helium, resulting in a mobility resolution of approximately 25. A small time-of-flight mass spectrometer (20 cm) with a mass resolution of up to 200 has been(More)
Peptide sequencing by surface-induced dissociation (SID) on a MALDI-ion mobility-orthogonal TOF mass spectrometer is demonstrated. SID of approximately 100-fmol amounts of model peptides HLGLAR (m/z 666.8), gramicidin S (m/z 1142.5), and bovine insulin b chain (m/z 3495.5) was accomplished using hydrocarbon-coated gold grids and approximately 20-eV(More)
Photoactive yellow protein (PYP) from Halorhodospira halophila is a soluble 14 kDa blue-light photoreceptor. It absorbs light via its para-coumaric acid chromophore (pCA), which is covalently attached to Cys69 and is believed to be involved in the negative phototactic response of the organism to blue light. The complete structure (including H atoms) of PYP(More)
The reaction system consisting of copper, saccharinate, and the auxiliary ligands H(2)O, PPh(3), and NH(3) produces a sequence of compounds in which saccharinate is coordinated to copper in four distinct manners. The complex trans-[Cu(sacch)(2)(H(2)O)(4)] (2) (produced by thermal dehydration of trans-[Cu(sacch)(2)(H(2)O)(4)].2H(2)O (1)) reacts with(More)
Rapid screening and identification of drug and other mixtures are possible using a novel ambient pressure high-resolution ion mobility (APIMS) orthogonal reflector time-of-flight mass spectrometer (TOFMS). Departing ions from the APIMS drift tube traversed a pressure interface between the APIMS and TOFMS where they were subjected to numerous gas collisions(More)
The controlled hydrolysis of potassium 2-tert-butylphenoxide or 2-isopropylphenoxide leads to the unexpected encapsulation of the water inside K6O6 hexameric drum aggregates. Encapsulation of the neutral molecules is enabled in these instances through the formation of strong hydrogen bonds and dative interactions between the host and guest.
We have determined the time-space average filling of hydrogen molecules in a binary tetrahydrofuran (THF)-d(8) + D(2) sII clathrate hydrate using high resolution neutron diffraction. The filling of hydrogen in the lattice of a THF-d(8) clathrate hydrate occurred upon pressurization. The hydrogen molecules were localized in the small dodecahedral cavities at(More)
In the presence of phenylsilane and 5 mol % cobalt(II) bis(2,2,6,6-tetramethylheptane-3,5-dionate), aryl-substituted monoenone monoaldehydes and bis(enones) undergo reductive cyclization to afford syn-aldol and anti-Michael products, respectively. For both aldol and Michael cycloreductions, five- and six-membered ring formation occurs in good yield with(More)
We report the in situ observation from diffraction data of the conversion of a gas hydrate with the structure II (sII) lattice to one with the structure I (sI) lattice. Initially, the in situ formation, dissociation, and reactivity of argon gas clathrate hydrate was investigated by time-of-flight neutron powder diffraction at temperatures ranging from 230(More)
