Added substrates, acetone and t-butyl alcohol, strongly retard the decomposition of H(2)O(2) brought about by ferric ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) at pH 8-9.5. Their relative effectiveness and the kinetic form of the retardation are consistent with their interruption of a hydroxyl radical chain that is propagated by HO. attack both upon H(2)O(2) and on(More)
Photochemical reactions of 6-azidocoumarin and 7-azido-4-methylcoumarin in the presence of secondary amines have been investigated for their potential applications in photoaffinity labeling. It was found that the singlet nitrene generated from 6-azidocoumarin isomerized to a dehydroazepine intermediate that reacted with an amine to yield two isomeric(More)
The interaction of the important but often overdosed local anesthetic bupivacaine, its structural analogs 2,6-dimethylaniline, and N-methyl-2,6-dimethylacetanilide, and cocaine, with several electron deficient aromatic moieties were studied primarily by proton NMR and UV-visible spectroscopy. In solution, the anesthetic, its analogs and cocaine are electron(More)
The objectives of this work are to explore the pi-pi complexation of amitriptyline with pi electron-deficient aromatic rings and demonstrate the feasibility of pi-pi complexation for overdosed drug detoxification. Water-soluble oligochitosan was chemically modified with dinitrobenzenesulfonyl groups to induce selective binding toward amitriptyline through(More)
The graft polymerization of styrene initiated by immobilized peroxide groups was investigated. Three different types of modification reactions were used to introduce peroxide groups which are directly attached onto the surface of two different silica supports. Silanol groups were chlorinated using thionyl chloride or tetrachlorosilane. In another reaction(More)
The structure of both cadmium methoxide and cadmium ethoxide is of a partially ordered random-layer type. X-ray diffraction patterns can be interpreted in terms of hexagonal crystal lattice with unit-cell parameters: a = 3.494(3), c = 8.36(1) A for cadmium methoxide, a = 3.482(3), c = 8.98(1) A for cadmium ethoxide. Powder diffractometer data for both(More)
Poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC) and poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) have been consecutively adsorbed onto 1.5-microm charged silica (SiO2) particles. Time-dependent adsorption studies indicate that, due to the strong ionic charge of the dissociated polycation in water, adsorption is complete in less than 30 min. Indications of the(More)
