Reductions in Organic Chemistry

Presents complete assurance of the kinds of mark downs passed through by means of many of the periods of natural chemistry. Discusses discounts in accordance with what bond or practical workforce is diminished via diverse reagents. offers distinct recognition to selective mark downs which are appropriate for the aid of 1 specific kind of bond or functionality with out affecting different bonds or capabilities found in a similar molecule.

Sample text

Filter-feeders accumulate the saxitoxins from the toxigenic dinoflagellates i n the phytoplankton they consume and pass the toxins o n to the predators that consume them i n turn. In general, the result at each step w i l l depend o n the sensitivity o f the consumer to the toxins and the extent to which it retains the toxins and modifies them. Thus a filter-feeder o r subsequent carnivore that is relatively insensitive to the saxitoxins and retains them efficiently can accumulate high levels and cause illness o r death when consumed by a predator that is sensitive.

A s discussed above, there is the possibility that toxigenesis i n Alexandrium is not intrinsic but due to symbionts. Whichever proves to be the case, the observed patterns o f toxin c o m p o s i t i o n , whether they are for the dinoflagellate itself o r the isolated assemblage o f dinoflagellate and symbiont, are a basis for recognizing and distinguishing the regional populations. In Table I the 11-hydroxysulfates are entered as epimeric pairs (3,5; 4,6; 9,11) because they are seldom encountered singly; an extract found to contain one w i l l generally be found to contain some amount o f its epimer.

It is generally necessary to multiply the response obtained from a detection method by a response factor to convert the response into a useful value. F o r instance, the response o f a fluorescence detector w o u l d be m u l t i p l i e d by an appropriate factor (f ) to obtain the concentration o f the particular toxin present, or by a different factor (f ) to calculate the toxicity. Since the specific toxicities o f the various toxins — the ratios o f toxicity to concentration — vary over a broad range, the f and f for a given toxin w i l l generally be different, often greatly so.
