Effect of substituents on complex stability aimed at designing new iron(III) and aluminum(III) chelators.
The solution equilibria of iron(III) and aluminum(III) with two classes of hard ligands (catechol, salicylic acid and their nitro-derivatives) have been reliably studied by potentiometric,Expand

Complex formation equilibria of Cu(II) and Zn(II) with triethylenetetramine and its mono- and di-acetyl metabolites.
Triethylenetetramine (TETA) dihydrochloride, or trientine, is a therapeutic molecule that has long been used as a copper-chelating agent for the second-line treatment of patients with Wilson'sExpand

Changes in the characteristics of low affinity GABA binding sites elicited by Ro15-1788.
3H-GABA binding was studied in cortical membranes from cerebral cortex of handling-habituated and naive rats after the in vitro addition of Ro15-1788. At low concentrations (10(-8), 10(-9) M)Expand
