The dithizone, Timm's sulphide silver and the selenium methods demonstrate a chelatable pool of zinc in CNS


From rats intravitally treated with dithizone (diphenyl-thiocarbazone) brains and spinal cords were removed and freeze-dried. The dithizonates present in the CNS tissue were extracted with carbon tetrachloride and subjected to a multielement analysis (proton activation, PIXE). It was found that the extract contained two metals. Most of the metal was zinc… (More)
