Biodiversity conservation programmes are underpinned by seed banking following drying to low water contents (WC), and supported by both the assessment and prediction of seed viability over time. The means of judging viability is thus crucial to the comprehension of seed vigour. We selected seeds of three species and one hybrid in the Salicaceae likely to(More)
The sharp-line absorption spectrum of cis-beta-[CrCl(2)(2,2,3-tet)]ClO(4) (2,2,3-tet: 1,4,7,11-tetraazaundecane) has been measured between 13,000 and 16,000 cm(-1) at 5K. The 77K emission, 298 K infrared and visible spectra have also been measured. The zero-phonon band in the highly resolved absorption spectrum splits into four components. The vibrational(More)
The mixed ligand complex [Cr(L-progly)(dpt)]ClO4 [H2progly = prolylglycine, dpt = di(3-aminopropyl)amine] has been prepared, and its geometric structure was discussed on the basis of electronic absorption and IR spectral data. The emission and excitation spectra taken at 77 K were also reported. The 12 electronic bands due to spin-allowed and spin-forbidden(More)
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) are a group of toxic halogenated aryl hydrocarbons inducing various physiological disorders against biological organisms. Here, we investigated their levels in sediment samples taken from 12 different rivers in Korea. The levels of PCDD/PCDFs in sediment samples were expressed as(More)
Constrained cyclam derivatives have been found to exhibit anti-HIV effects. The strength of binding to the CXCR4 receptor correlates with anti-HIV activity. The conformation of the macrocyclic compound is very important for co-receptor recognition. Therefore, knowledge of the conformation and crystal packing of macrocycles has become important in developing(More)
The crystal structure of [Cr(NCS)2(cyclam)]NCS (cyclam = 1,4,8,11-tetra-aza-cyclo-tetra-deca-ne, C10H24N4) has been determined by using synchrotron radiation at 98 K. The Cr(III) atom is in a slightly distorted octa-hedral environment with four N atoms of the macrocyclic ligand and two N-coordinated NCS(-) anions in cis positions. The average Cr-N(cyclam)(More)
