Going for gold

, : Going for gold. Nursing Standard 1987) 15(45): 20-21

Bachman et al.'s article in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society (2001;123:5376-7) adds to the growing evidence that there are surprisingly strong metal-metal interactions between gold atoms in molecular complexes. The authors report the construction of striking rotator phases of n-alkylisocyanide complexes of gold chloride of the type (R-NC)AuCl based solely on their metal-metal interactions. The new gold-based rotator phases are unique in that mesogenic properties are induced in the absence of traditional mesogenic units, and this behavior could potentially be modified to produce useful structures, such as metal-based liquid crystals or photoluminescent materials.

The antioxidant function of vitamin E is thought to mediate its photo-protective effects. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is an important mediator of early photo-inflammation. Thus, the ability gamma-tocopherol to inhibit COX-2 activity independently of...
