However, the production and regulation of endogenous levels of HMB over the(More)
The synthesis, structure, and properties of polymers in which tin is chemically anchored as tributyltin carboxylate are discussed. A base copolymer with anhydride or carboxyl groups is partially esterified with tributyltin oxide; the free carboxyls are then reacted with diepoxides to yield cross-linked controlled release formulations. The network structure(More)
