The ClO4 ligand group - Part I - Synthesis of inorganic anhydrous perchlorates

Written by sctunisie no comments

Up to the last years, the perchlorate anion, as a coordinating agent was scarcely known at all. The discovery of the ionic structure of the chlorine trioxides ClO2+ ClO4- has confirmed its perchlorating part and has permitted to consider again the synthesis of anhydrous perchlorates. From 1975 to 1980 characterization of 25 new anhydrous perchlorato metals or perchlorato metallates in our laboratory was a contribution to the destruction of the myth: ClO4 is a non coordinating anion. The binding of the ligand to the metal is determined by Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy and by X ray diffraction for [Sn2O3(ClO4)4]2. This study permits to propose for all the synthetized compounds molecular structures in which the ClO4 ligand is monodentate or bidentate.

Comparative study of two molecular forms of Staphylococcus aureus nuclease

Written by sctunisie no comments

Using varied and complementary analytical technics, we have characterized biochemically two molecular forms for nuclease of Staphylococcus aureus (Foggi strain). The results obtained show clearly that nuclease I differs from nuclease II by the loss of one dipeptide beside N. terminal. This loss doesn’t seem affect the enzymatic activity since the two forms have the same specific activities towards the DNA and the RNA. Several hypothesis have been advanced to render an account of the whole of results.

NMR of 13C of natural or hemisynthesized indole alkaloids of the ibogane type

Written by sctunisie no comments

A 13C NMR study of 23 indole alkaloids from iboga-type has permitted the chemical shifts of ail carbon to be established. Among those alkaloids, five were hemisynthesised, and the others were extracted from Bonafousia tetrastachya, Anartia olivacea, Anartia meyeri and Peschiera echinata (Apocynaceae).
