Formation constants for the calcium(II), magnesium(II) and zinc(II) complexes of the orally effective iron chelator, pyridoxal isonicotinoyl hydrazone (PIH) and three analogues, pyridoxal benzoyl hydrazone (PBH), pyridoxalp-methoxybenzoyl hydrazone (PpMBH) and pyridoxalm-fluorobenzoyl hydrazone (PmFBH) have been determined by potentiometry at 25\dg C(More)
The possible role of urea and trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) in providing positive buoyancy has been examined for elasmobranch fishes. TMAO has a considerably lower density than an equimolar solution of urea, and solutions of both TMAO and urea are considerably less dense than equimolar solutions of most other body fluid solutes. The body fluid composition of(More)
Estimates of the concentrations and identity of the predominant complexes of iron with the low-molecular-mass ligands in vivo are important to improve current understanding of the metabolism of this trace element. These estimates require a knowledge of the stability of the iron-citrate complexes. Previous studies on the equilibrium properties of the(More)
Precise dielectric spectra have been determined at 25 degrees C over the exceptionally broad frequency range of 0.1 <or= nu/GHz <or= 3000 for the imidazolium-based room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) [bmim][BF4], [bmim][PF6], [bmim][DCA], and [hmim][BF4]. The spectra are dominated by a low-frequency process at approximately 1 GHz with a broad relaxation(More)
The ionic product of water, pK(w)=-log[H(+)][OH(-)], has been determined in aqueous solutions of sodium perchlorate over the concentration range of 1.0-8.0 M at 25 degrees C from high-precision potentiometric titrations carried out in cells with liquid junction using both glass and hydrogen electrodes. The glass electrode results are systematically lower(More)
Dielectric relaxation (DR) spectra have been measured for aqueous solutions of sodium formate (NaOFm) and sodium acetate (NaOAc) over a wide range of frequencies (0.2 ≤ ν/GHz ≤ 89) up to solute concentrations c is less or approximately equal to 3.2 M and is less or approximately equal to 3.7 M, respectively, at 25 °C. Measurements were also made on(More)
A systematic study of the dielectric relaxation spectra of aqueous solutions of LiCl and Li2SO4 has been made at solute concentrations of 0.05 < or = c/M < or = 1.0 and 2.0, respectively, and over a wide range of frequencies (0.2 < or = nu/GHz < or = 89) at 25 degrees C. The spectra were best described by a superposition of four Debye processes, consisting(More)
A systematic study of the dielectric relaxation spectra of aqueous solutions of NaBr, NaI, NaNO(3), NaClO(4), and NaSCN has been made over a wide range of frequencies (0.2 < or = nu/GHz < or = 89) and solute concentrations (0.05 < or = c/M < or = 1.5) at 25 degrees C. The spectra could be adequately described by a single Cole-Cole (CC) process,(More)
