Summary of "Mechanistic Studies of the Reaction of Ir(III) Porphyrin Hydride with 2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl to an Unsupported Ir-Ir Porphyrin Dimer."

Reaction of hydrido[5,10,15,20-tetrakis(p-tolyl)porphyrinato]iridium(III) (Ir(ttp)H) (1) with 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl (TEMPO) (2) at room temperature gave a 90% yield of the unsupported iridium(II) porphyrin dimer, Ir(II)(2)(ttp)(2) (3). Kinetic measurements revealed that the oxidation followed overall second-order kinetics: rate = k[Ir(ttp)H][TEMPO], k(25 °C) = 6.65 × 10(-4) M(-1). The entropy of activation (ΔS(‡) = -25.3 ± 2.5 cal mol(-1) K(-1)) and the kinetic isotope effect of 7.2 supported a bimolecular associative mechanism in the rate-determining hydrogen atom transfer from Ir(ttp)H to TEMPO.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Studies designed to examine associations, commonly, hypothesized causal relations. They are usually concerned with identifying or measuring the effects of risk factors or exposures. The common types of analytic study are CASE-CONTROL STUDIES; COHORT STUDIES; and CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDIES.

Works about research studies that evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies.

Cyclic N-oxide radical functioning as a spin label and radiation-sensitizing agent.

Inflammation of an intervertebral disk or disk space which may lead to disk erosion. Until recently, discitis has been defined as a nonbacterial inflammation and has been attributed to aseptic processes (e.g., chemical reaction to an injected substance). However, recent studies provide evidence that infection may be the initial cause, but perhaps not the promoter, of most cases of discitis. Discitis has been diagnosed in patients following discography, myelography, lumbar puncture, paravertebral injection, and obstetrical epidural anesthesia. Discitis following chemonucleolysis (especially with chymopapain) is attributed to chemical reaction by some and to introduction of microorganisms by others.

Studies in which the presence or absence of disease or other health-related variables are determined in each member of the study population or in a representative sample at one particular time. This contrasts with LONGITUDINAL STUDIES which are followed over a period of time.
