The conversion of SO2 into arylsulfones under metal-free conditions was achieved for the first time by reacting SO2 with (hetero)arylsilanes and alkylhalides in the presence of a fluoride source. The mechanism of this transformation was elucidated based on DFT calculations, which highlight the influence of SO2 in promoting C-Si bond cleavage.
A controlled, randomised, prospective trial of Argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) was carried out on 48 eyes of 30 black Jamaican patients with primary open-angle glaucoma. All eyes had uncontrolled intra-ocular pressures (⩾22mm Hg) despite medical therapy. Treatment was successful in controlling intraocular pressure in 68% of eyes after 12 months follow-up(More)
