From the reaction between a dinuclear paddle-wheel carboxylate, namely [Cu2mu-(O2CCH2C4H3S)4] (1), and the flexible ligand 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane (BPP) a neutral 2-D coordination polymer [[Cu2(O2CCH2C4H3S)4mu-(BPP)2]]n (2) was obtained. Compounds 1 and 2 were characterized by means of elemental analysis, thermal analysis (TG/DSC), vibrational(More)
Bilateral hemifacial spasm (BHS) is a rare focal movement disorder often associated with vascular compression of both facial nerves. The contractions are usually asymmetric and asynchronous. Typically, one side is affected first and there is a long but variable interval for the symptoms on the other side to occur. BHS must be differentiated from other(More)
Spinal myoclonus is a rare movement disorder characterized by myoclonic involvement of a group of muscles supplied by a few contiguous segments of the spinal cord. Structural lesions are usually the cause, but in primary spinal myoclonus the etiology remains unknown. We present the case of a 26-year-old woman with cervical spinal myoclonus in which both(More)
UNLABELLED Diabetic polyneuropathy can be confirmed by nerve conduction studies. The data can be analyzed in the form of a combined index instead of individual parameters. METHODS The combined index included five parameters of nerve conduction studies commonly used for evaluation of polyneuropathies. We evaluated sensitivity in 100 diabetic patients with(More)
Bariatric surgery is frequently indicated in the treatment of morbid obesity. Previously unreported complications have been associated to this surgery; among them, neurological complications have gained attention. We report the case of a 25-year-old man submitted to gastric surgery for treatment of morbid obesity who developed, two months after surgery,(More)
Anhydrotetracycline (AHTC) is the major toxic decomposition product of the antibiotic tetracycline. The complexation of AHTC to Mg(II), Al(III), and Fe(III) was studied in aqueous medium using absorption and circular dichroism measurements. The study of the Mg(II)-AHTC interactions at pH 7 indicated the formation of the MHL and M2L species in which an(More)
A new compound of formula (Bu4N)2[Mn2{Cu(opba)}2ox] (1) [Bu4N(+) = tetra-n-butylammonium cation, H4opba = 1,2-phenylenebis(oxamic acid), and H2ox = oxalic acid] has been synthesized and magneto-structurally investigated. The reaction of manganese(II) acetate, [Cu(opba)](2-), and ox(2-) in dimethyl sulfoxide yielded single crystals of 1. The structure of 1(More)
The title compound, C₁₄H₁₁NO₄, exists in the solid phase in the zwitterionic form, 2-{[(4-carboxy-3-hydroxyphenyl)iminiumyl]methyl}phenolate, with the H atom from the phenol group on the 2-hydroxybenzylidene ring transferred to the imine N atom, resulting in a strong intramolecular N-H∙∙∙O hydrogen bond between the iminium H atom and the phenolate O atom,(More)
OBJECTIVE to compare the ability and performance of Basic Activities of Daily Living of dependent elderly individuals cared for in a geriatric healthcare center. METHOD cross-sectional, observational study with quantitative approach. The Functional Independence Measure (FIM) was applied in 109 elderly individuals cared for in a geriatric healthcare(More)
The title structure, K(2)[Co(C(11)N(4)O(3))(2)(H(2)O)(4)], is isotypic with K(2)[Fe(C(11)N(4)O(3))(2)(H(2)O)(4)]. The Co(II) atom is in a distorted octa-hedral CoN(2)O(4) geometry, forming a dianionic mononuclear entity. Each dianionic unit is associated with two potassium cations and inter-acts with adjacent units through O-H⋯N and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
