Understanding the origin of pallasites, stony-iron meteorites made mainly of olivine crystals and FeNi metal, has been a vexing problem since their discovery. Here, we show that pallasite olivines host minute magnetic inclusions that have favorable magnetic recording properties. Our paleointensity measurements indicate strong paleomagnetic fields,(More)
An improved pour-plate auxanographic method has been developed for determining the assimilation of 14 different carbohydrates by medically important yeasts. Reduction of a dye incorporated into the agar has been correlated with the growth and carbohydrate assimilation of the yeasts, allowing the speciation of many yeasts within 24 to 48 h. This technique(More)
A new method for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based on the detection of relatively strong signal from intermolecular zero-quantum coherences (iZQCs) is reported. Such a signal would not be observable in the conventional framework of magnetic resonance; it originates in long-range dipolar couplings (10 micrometers to 1 millimeter) that are traditionally(More)
Neurofilaments purified from cat, ox, Loligo and Myxicola nerve fibres are composed of different numbers of polypeptides with different molecular weights. Mammalian neurofilaments also differ from those of marine invertebrates by being about 20% larger in diameter. Despite the differences, X-ray diffraction patterns from all the neurofilaments indicate a(More)
A new medium composed of Tween 80, oxgall, caffeic acid, and Davis agar (TOC) that provides for the rapid presumptive identification of Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans is described herein. C. albicans is differentiated from other yeasts by the sequential production of germ tubes and chlamydospores. In a comparison with cormeal agar control(More)
Moving intra-axonal organelles demonstrate frequent variations in speed when viewed over several seconds. To evaluate these and other motion variations, a long-term analysis of organelle motion in isolated axoplasm of Myxicola infundibulum was carried out using differential interference contrast optics and analog and digital image enhancement techniques.(More)
A novel family of BINAP ligands were prepared with alkoxy- and acetoxy-derived substituents in the 3,3'-positions. They were prepared through a convergent synthesis starting from readily available 4-bromo-2-naphthol. These ligands afforded excellent enantioselectivities in the asymmetric hydrogenation of substituted olefins. The presence of the(More)
Reactions of the nucleophilic carbene 1,3-dimesityl-imidazol-2-ylidene (1) with diazofluorene, diphenyldiazomethane, and azidotrimethylsilane were examined. Specifically, carbene 1 reacts with diazofluorene and diphenyldiazomethane to give addition products (azines: 3 and 4, respectively). Compounds 3 and 4 were further characterized in the solid-state by(More)
