Attempts to synthesize diboron tetrafluoride by the reduction of
boron trifluoride with alkali metal solutions in 1, 2-dimethoxyethane
proved to be unsuccessful. No diboron tetrahalide was found when
boron trifluoride, antimony trifluoride, or boron trichloride was
reacted with tetra-(dimethylamino)-diboron; although there appeared
to be some exchange between chloride and amine...
This study was designed to determine whether
dietary protein is a nutritional factor influencing the
bioavailability of dietary fluoride. To accomplish
this, a factorial experiment was conducted with
weanling rats fed a purified diet to determine the
influence of dietary protein type (casein or
lactalbumin) and level (12% or 36%)...
Fruit set of sweet cherries was reduced if sprays containing fluoride
(sodium or ammonium fluoride or hydrofluoric acid) were applied during
anthesis. Sprays applied at other times during the fruit-growing season caused
fruit and leaf symptoms, depending on the concentration of fluoride, but no
reductions in fruit set. Symptoms of...
The inhibition of the enolase enzyme system by fluoride has
been established for many years in in vitro experiments; however,
this inhibitory action has never been demonstrated in an intact mammal.
The present work was designed to examine the effect of fluoride
administered by intravenous infusion in rats, under the...
New chemical synthesis strategies have been investigated for the preparation of acceptor-type graphite intercalation compounds (GIC's) with fluoroanions in order to obtain new materials and to develop a better understanding of the synthetic approaches and properties of the products. New GIC's containing borate chelate anion such as bis(oxalato)borate, CxB[OC(O)C(O)O]₂•δF, are...
