CERTAIN tetradentate organo-cobalt complexes have physical and chemical properties which resemble those of vitamin B12 (ref. 1). We have investigated whether the water-soluble complexes based on bis-(diacetylmonoximeimino)-1,3-propane—abbreviated (DOH)2propane (Fig. 1)—will also mimic some of the biological properties of vitamin B12, particularly the… CONTINUE READING
