Protection by Oximes of bis-Pyridinium Ions against Lethal Diisopropyl Phosphonofluoridate Poisoning


THE monoximes and dioximes of bis-pyridinium ions are considerably more effective than any other known compound in re-activating acetocholinesterase inhibited by tetraethyl pyrophosphate and in protecting mice against lethal tetraethyl pyrophosphate poisoning1. Equally favourable results have now been obtained in experiments in which diisopropyl… (More)
