Databases may be compromised by asking a set of queries which return only statistical information and making inferences about a specific entry from the results of the set of queries. We present methods of constructing the set of queries to compromise a database where all the queries in the set return the maximum of a set of k elements, or all queries return(More)
The sequential reaction of ZnMe2 with a 2-pyridylamine (HN(2-C5H4N)R, R = Ph: 1; 3,5-Xy (=3,5-xylyl): 2; 2,6-Xy: 3; Bz (=benzyl): 4; Me: 5), tBuLi and thereafter with oxygen affords various lithium zincate species, the solid-state structures of which reveal a diversity of oxo-capture modes. Amine 1 reacts to give both dimeric THF [Li(Me)OZn[N(2-C5H4N)Ph]2](More)
The reaction of the dimeric phospha(III)zane [ClP(mu-Npy)]2 (1) (py = 2-pyridyl) with pyNHLi (2:1 equivalents, respectively) in THF/Et3N leads to rapid formation of the bicyclic nona-phospha(III)zane [[ClP(Npy)2]2-[P2(Npy)]] (2). This novel rearrangement can be rationalised by a mechanism involving "twisting (or swivelling)" of the central P(mu-Npy)P(More)
Calcium-activated chloride channels (CaCCs) are one of five families of chloride channels, ubiquitously expressed, and essential for a host of biological actions. CaCCs have key roles in processes as diverse as olfactory transduction and epithelial secretion, and also CaCCs are essential in smooth muscle contraction. The corpus cavernosum is a vascular(More)
