Singlet ground state actinide chemistry with geminals.
Hamilton, Canada. In Phys Chem Chem Phys, Jul 2015
Our study of the ground state spectroscopic constants (bond lengths and vibrational frequencies) and potential energy curves of actinide oxides (UO2(2+) and ThO2) as well as the energetic stability of ThC2 isomers reveals that vOO-AP1roG describes the electronic structure of heavy-element compounds accurately, at mean-field computational cost.
Structure induced Yb valence changes in the solid solution Yb(x)Ca(1-x)C2.
Köln, Germany. In Inorg Chem, 2013
Compounds with x ≥ 0.75 crystallize in the tetragonal CaC2 type structure (I4/mmm, Z = 2) and obey Vegard's law; for x ≤ 0.75 the monoclinic ThC2 type structure (C2/c, Z = 4) is found, which coexists with the monoclinic CaC2-III type structure (C2/m, Z = 4) for x ≤ 0.25.
Efavirenz interference in urine screening immunoassays for tetrahydrocannabinol.
Pretoria, South Africa. In Ann Clin Biochem, 2012
METHODS: Random urine samples from 30 patients on EFV therapy were analysed for THC metabolites by two near-testing devices (THC One Step Marijuana and Rapid Response(®) Drugs of Abuse Test Strips) and two automated immunoassays (Roche Diagnostics Cannabinoids II and Beckman Coulter SYNCHRON(®) Systems THC2).
