Glycine, when injected intravitreally, has an inhibitory action on the electroretinogram (ERG) of the rabbit resulting in a transient loss of the oscillatory potentials of the b-wave. This inhibitory action is reversible within 24 h after glycine injection. In autoradiographs, after [3H] glycine administration, the radioactive label is mainly found over the… (More)
Posterior eye cups of the frog Rana ridibunda were prefixed in the presence of tannic acid, osmicated and stained en bloc with uranyl acetate. Electron microscopy revealed the following features of membrane traffic in cells of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE): (1) intracellular membranes with increased electron density undergo degradation within… (More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [CdCl(2)(C(8)H(6)N(2)O)(2)](n), consists of one mol-ecule of the 3H-quinazolin-4-one ligand, one Cd(2+) cation, which is located on a twofold axis, and one chlorido ligand in a general position. The latter bridges metal cations, forming a one-dimensional polymer along the b axis. The Cd⋯Cd distance along the chain… (More)
The title compound, [Co(C5H7O2)2(C6H12N2)] n , was obtained as a one-dimensional coordination polymer from bis-(acetyl-acetonato)di-aqua-cobalt(II), [Co(acac)2(OH2)2], and 1,4-di-aza-bicyclo-[2.2.2]octane (DABCO), a di-amine with good bridging ability and rod-like spacer function. In the chain complex that extends along the c axis, the Co(II) atom is… (More)
The novel [Ru(Acriphos)(PPh3 )(Cl)(PhCO2 )] [1; Acriphos=4,5-bis(diphenylphosphino)acridine] is an excellent precatalyst for the hydrogenation of CO2 to give formic acid in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and DMSO/H2 O without the need for amine bases as co-reagents. Turnover numbers (TONs) of up to 4200 and turnover frequencies (TOFs) of up to 260 h(-1) were… (More)
Completing our reports concerning the reaction products from calcium halides and the amino acid proline, two different solids were found for the reaction of l- and dl-proline with CaI2. The enanti-opure amino acid yields the one-dimensional coordination polymer catena-poly[[aqua-μ3-l-proline-tetra-μ2-l-proline-dicalcium] tetra-iodide 1.7-hydrate],… (More)
The title compound, (C6H14N)2[Sn(C6H5)2Cl4], contains cyclo-hexyl-ammonium cations in general positions and a stannate(IV) anion that is located on a twofold rotation axis. The Sn(IV) atom in the complex anion is surrounded by four Cl(-) ligands and two trans-phenyl groups in a distorted octa-hedral configuration. The anions are connected with the cations… (More)
In the crystal structure of 1-methyl-3-allyl benzotriazolium iodide, C(10)H(12)N(3) (+)·I(-), centrosymmetric dimers of coplanar cations are π-stacked with an inter-planar distance of 3.453 (6) Å. The iodide anions are situated above and below the formally positive charged triazolium rings.
