    In the title molecule, C17H19NO5S, the p-tolyl ring is oriented approximately parallel to the phenyl ring [dihedral angle = 17.2 (1) ], resulting in an intramolecular – interation [centroid–centroid distance = 3.184 ...
  • Guzei, Ilia A.; Spencer, Lara C.; Tshivashe, Mmboneni G.; Darkwa, James (Acta Crystallographica, 2009)
    The title compound, C16H16N4O2S, crystallizes with two symmetry-independent half-molecules in the asymmetric unit. All non-H atoms in each molecule lie in a crystallographic mirror plane. The molecules form sheets in ...
  • Chirwa, Nthato; Govender, Dhirendra; Ndimba, Bongani (Ivyspring, 2012)
    Background and Aim: Secreted gastric mucins are large O-glycosylated proteins of crude mucus gels which are aberrantly expressed in malignancy. An albumin associated 55-65kDa glycoprotein was previously shown in mucus gels ...
  • Gall, A.; Simon, T.; Lowther, J.E. (IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, 2011)
    The negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy (NV) defect (NV center) in diamond is a leading candidate to realize solid-state qubits and ultrasensitive magnetometers in ambient conditions. A new interpretation of some of ...
  • Rutherford, MC (Cooperative Scientific Programmes: CSIR, 1979-01)
    Aboveground peak season biomass is given for 11 woody species in each of five belt transects under study. Mean aerial biomass for all species was 16 273 kg ha, made up of 14 937 kg ha wood, 236 kg ha current season's twigs ...
  • Davis, Wade L.; Meijboom, Reinout (2011)
    The title compound, [Rh(C5H7O2)(C20H32NP)(CO)], features an acetylacetonate-chelated RhI cation coordinated by one P [Rh—P = 2.2525 (7) A ° ], one carbonyl C [Rh—C = 1.792 (3) A ° ] and two O [Rh—O = 2.0582 (17) and ...
  • Gäde, Gerd; Marco, Heather G. (zookeys, 2011)
    The presented work is a hybrid of an overview and an original research paper on peptides belonging to the adipokinetic hormone (AKH) family that are present in the corpora cardiaca of Chrysomeloidea. First, we introduce ...
