Fibrate derivatives and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors modify homeostasis of cholesterol. The aim of this study was to assess in an unselected population whether these hypolipidemic drugs are risk factors for cholelithiasis or, conversely, are protective agents. Both sexes, all socioeconomic categories, pregnant women, and cholecystectomized subjects were(More)
Crystals of aza-beta3-peptides have been obtained. This gives the first opportunity for hydrazino peptides, in the sense of oligomers built exclusively with alpha-hydrazinoacetic units, to be observed in the solid state. The structures make it clear that the H-bond network developed by aza-beta3-peptides differs radically from those of the corresponding(More)
The crystal structure of dizinc trimolybdenum(IV) octa-oxide, Zn(2)Mo(3)O(8), has been redetermined from single-crystal X-ray data. The structure has been reported previously based on neutron powder diffraction data [Hibble et al. (1999 ▶). Acta Cryst. B55, 683-697] and single-crystal data [McCarroll et al. (1957 ▶). J. Am. Chem. Soc.79, 5410-5414; Ansell &(More)
We report on a detailed investigation of the crystal and electronic band structures and of the transport and thermodynamic properties of the Mo-based cluster compound Ag2Tl2Mo9Se11. This novel structure type crystallizes in the trigonal space group R3̅c and is built of a three-dimensional network of interconnected Mo9Se11 units. Single-crystal X-ray(More)
The new compounds LiLn(9)Mo(16)O(35) (Ln=La, Ce, Pr, and Nd) were synthesized from stoichiometric mixtures of Li(2)MoO(4), Ln(2)O(3), Pr(6)O(11) or CeO(2), MoO(3), and Mo heated at 1600 °C for 48 h in a molybdenum crucible sealed under a low argon pressure. The crystal structure, determined from a single crystal of the Nd member, showed that the main(More)
The structure of hexa-deca-praseodymium henicosa-molybden-um hexa-penta-contaoxide, Pr(16)Mo(21)O(56), is isotypic with other rare earth representatives of formula type RE(16)Mo(21)O(56) (RE = La, Ce, Nd). It is characterized by Mo(10)O(18) (i)O(8) (a) units (where i = inner and a = apical O atoms) containing biocta-hedral Mo(10) clusters and octa-hedral(More)
The structure of Tl(2)Mo(9)Se(11), dithallium nona-molybdenum undeca-selenide, is isotypic with Tl(2)Mo(9)S(11) [Potel et al. (1980 ▶). Acta Cryst. B36, 1319-1322]. The structural set-up is characterized by a mixture of Mo(6)Se(i) (8)Se(a) (6) and Mo(12)Se(i) (14)Se(a) (6) cluster units in a 1:1 ratio. Both components are inter-connected through inter-unit(More)
