    Fluoroquinolones are antibiotics that have a large spectrum of action against bacteria, especially Gram-negative. A strategy to enhance their pharmacological behavior, and try to counteract bacterial resistance, is their coordination to divalent metal ions and 1,10-phenanthroline. These stable...

    The radiation-chemical reduction of Tl[sup +], Co[sup 2+] and Ni[sup 2+] ions in water-in-oil microemulsion has been described. Rate constants for the reduction of the metal ions by e[sup -][sub aq] were found to be much lower compared to those in aqueous solution. The absorption spectrum and...
