A series of heterocyclic organobismuth(III) compounds 2 [ClBi(5-R-C6H(3)-2-SO2C6H(4)-1'-): R=Me, Ph, MeO, Cl, H, t-Bu, CF3, F, Me2N] was synthesized in order to study the relative importance of structure and specific substitutions in relation to their lipophilicity and antifungal activity against the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A clear(More)
A series of heterocyclic organobismuth(III) carboxylates 4 and 5 [RCO2Bi(C6H4-2-SO2C6H4-1'-)] derived from diphenyl sulfone was synthesized to determine the influence of the carboxylate ligand structure on the lipophilicity and antifungal activity against the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In contrast to the clear structure-activity relationship between(More)
Ovalbumin contains four cysteine sulfhydryls (Cys11, Cys30, Cys367, and Cys382) and one cystine disulfide (Cys73-Cys120). A highly reactive aromatic disulfide, 2,2'-dipyridyl disulfide, reacts specifically with Cys367 of ovalbumin at pH 2.2 generating a mixed disulfide protein derivative [Tatsumi, E., and Hirose, M. (1997) J. Biochem. 122, 300-308]. The(More)
The chemical reaction of bimetallic clusters of transition metals, Fe/Co and Co/Mo, which are used for catalysts of carbon nanotube growth, is studied by FT-ICR (Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance) mass spectrometer with laser-vaporization supersonic-expansion cluster beam source [1]. In order to investigate the initial reaction of alcohol or(More)
SWNTs are expected for various applications for extraordinary physical and chemical characters based on the unique geometric structure. As for the macroscopic generation, the ACCVD technique appears to be one of best synthesis methods [1]. However its synthetic mechanism has not yet been made clear, hence the fundamental research is necessary for generation(More)
Ovalbumin assumes a highly ordered molten-globule conformation at pH 2.2. To investigate whether or not such structural nature is related to the existence of an intrachain native disulfide bond, the structural characteristics of disulfide-reduced ovalbumin at the acidic pH were compared with those of the native disulfide-intact protein by a variety of(More)
