  • The structure of vitamin B12 has been examined by the X-ray analysis of four different crystal structures, air-dried and wet vitamin B 12, the selenocyanate derivative of B12, and a hexacarboxylic acid prepared by the degradation of the vitamin by Cannon, Johnson and Todd. The analysis turned on the possibility of identifying some of the atomic positions in the molecule in very confused appproximate electron density distributions calculated using only evidence of cobalt or cobalt and selenium… CONTINUE READING
