1,3-Bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)imidazolium chloride is reduced electrochemically and chemically to produce a nucleophilic carbene, namely 1,3-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene. The carbene was also shown to be compatible with and persistent in the ionic liquid tetradecyl(trihexyl)phosphonium chloride.
Stimulation of the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse immune-system with a single bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination can inhibit the development of diabetes. The optimal dose, and the time and number of vaccinations is still to be clarified. In this study we evaluated the protective effect of repeated BCG vaccinations on preventing diabetes in NOD mice.(More)
Certain DNA minor groove binding agents, distamycin, netropsin, and a series of anticancer bis-benzimidazoles can block DNA helicase activity by binding to duplex DNA at specific base sequences. DNA helicases are crucial to cell DNA replication, transcription and repair because these enzymes separate double-stranded DNA, thereby preparing the strands for(More)
Phosphonium ionic liquids (PhosILs), most notably tetradecyl(trihexyl)phosphonium decanoate (PhosIL-C(9)H(1)9COO), are solvents for bases such as Grignard reagents, isocyanides, Wittig reagents (phosphoranes), and N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs). The stability of the organometallic species in PhosIL solution is anion dependent. Small bases, such as(More)
This article covers topics of creating special medical technical laboratory for medial and biologic studies concerning influence of potent high-frequency elecromagnetic radiation on various biologic objects. The authors gave example of such laboratory, described its construction features, purpose and main characteristics of the included devices.
Photoisomerization of a coordinating, photochromic dithienylethene bearing a pyridine and a methylpyridinium group was investigated as a means to reversibly modulate the luminescence from CdSe-ZnS core-shell quantum dots. Resonance energy transfer and electron transfer are both plausible quenching mechanisms based on an increase in the spectral(More)
