In the title compound, [Ni(C13H18NO3)2(C12H8N2)], the Ni(II) cation shows a distorted octa-hedral coordination environment. It is formed by two N atoms from the phenanthroline ligand, as well as two N and two O atoms belonging to two 2-[(2-hy-droxy-benz-yl)amino]-4-methyl-penta-noate ligands. Complex mol-ecules are connected into layers propagating along the ab plane via hydrogen bonds formed by O atoms of carboxyl-ate and phenoxide groups, which are further connected into a three-dimensional motif.

The full mol-ecule of the binuclear title compound, [Cd2Cl2(C6H8O4)(C6H8N2)2(H2O)2], is generated by the application of a centre of inversion located at the middle of the central CH2-CH2 bond of the adipate dianion; the latter chelates a Cd(II) atom at each end. Along with two carboxyl-ate-O atoms, the Cd(II) ion is coordinated by the two N atoms of the chelating benzene-1,2-di-amine ligand, a Cl(-) anion and an aqua ligand to define a distorted octa-hedral CdClN2O3 coordination geometry with the monodentate ligands being mutually cis...

The crystal structures of the trans-fused compound potassium trans-bi-cyclo-[5.1.0]octane-4-carboxyl-ate monohydrate, K(+)·C9H13O2(-)·H2O, (I), and of cis-bi-cyclo-[5.1.0]octan-4-yl 4-bromo-benzene-sulfonate, C14H17BrO3S, (II), have been determined. Compound (I) represents the smallest trans-fused cyclo-propane structure known to date, and features the expected shortening of the bridging C-C bond relative to the other cyclo-propane bond lengths, in contrast to the cis-fused system, (II), where all of the cyclo-propane bond lengths are the same...

The title complex, [Co(C7H7N4O2)2(H2O)4], comprises mononuclear mol-ecules consisting of a Co(II) ion, two deprotonated theophylline ligands (systematic name: 1,3-dimethyl-7H-purine-2,6-dione) and four coordinating water mol-ecules. The Co(II) atom lies on an inversion centre and has a slightly distorted octa-hedral coordination environment, with two N atoms of two trans-oriented theophylline ligands and the O atoms of four water mol-ecules. An intra-molecular hydrogen bond stabilizes this conformation. A three-dimensional supra-molecular network structure is formed by inter-molecular O-H⋯O and O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds...

Potassium indium diarsenate(V) was grown under mild hydro-thermal conditions (T = 493 K, 7 d) at a pH value of about 1. It adopts the TlInAs2O7 structure type (P-1, Z = 4) and is closely related to the KAlP2O7 (P21/c) and RbAlAs2O7 (P-1) structure types. The framework topology of KInAs2O7 is built of two symmetrically non-equivalent As2O7 groups which share corners with InO6 octa-hedra. The K atoms are located in channels extending along [010].

The structure of cerium(IV) bis-(phosphite), Ce(HPO3)2, has been solved by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and has trigonal (P-3m1) symmetry. The cerium(IV) cation exhibits site symmetry -3m. and is octa-hedrally coordinated by O atoms of the phosphite ligands (point group symmetry 3m.). The highly symmetrical compound has a layered structure parallel to the ab plane, and is closely related to zirconium(IV) bis-(phosphite) solved via powder X-ray diffraction with trigonal (P-3 symmetry. Structural details of the two compounds are comparatively discussed...

The title compound, [IrCl(C12H8NO)2{(CH3)2SO}]·H3CCN or [IrCl(fppy)2(DMSO)]·H3CCN [where fppy is 4-(pyridin-2-yl)benzaldehyde and DMSO is dimethyl sulfoxide], is a mononuclear iridium(III) complex including two fppy ligands, a sulfur-coordinating DMSO ligand, and one terminal chloride ligand that define a distorted octa-hedral coordination sphere. The complex crystallizes from 1:1 DMSO-aceto-nitrile as an aceto-nitrile solvate. In the crystal, weak C-H⋯O and C-H⋯N hydrogen-bonding inter-actions between adjacent complexes and between the aceto-nitrile solvent and the complex consolidate the packing...

In the title Ni(II) complex, [Ni(C10H11O2)2(C6H6N2O)2(H2O)2]·2H2O, the divalent Ni ion occupies a crystallographically imposed centre of symmetry and is coordinated by two O atoms from the carboxyl-ate groups of two 2,4,6-tri-methyl-benzoate (TMB) ligands [Ni-O = 2.0438 (12) Å], two N atoms from the pyridyl groups of two isonicotinamide (INA) ligands [Ni-N = 2.1506 (15) Å] and two water mol-ecules [Ni-O = 2.0438 (12) Å] in a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry. The coordinating water mol-ecules are hydrogen bonded to the non-coordinating carboxyl-ate O atom of the TMB ligand [O⋯O = 2...

The term optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) comprises different OCT-based technologies which all allow noninvasive assessment of retinal perfusion, based on moving red blood cells. The main areas where OCTA is currently used are investigation of perfusion and vascular structure of the macular retina (e.g., in macular degenerations and diabetic macular diseases) and the disk and peripapillary retina (in glaucoma and other optic disk diseases). The current editorial provides a brief overview on the potential of OCTA and its use to measure perfusion in the peripapillary retina in glaucoma...

PURPOSE: Detection of the exact area of corneal neovascularization using slit-lamp photography is often difficult. Thus, we evaluated corneal neovascularization in patients with limbal stem cell deficiency using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). METHODS: Five patients with 5 eyes showing partial or total limbal stem cell deficiency were enrolled. Three eyes had severe corneal scarring. Five 6- × 6-mm images (frontal, upper, lower, nasal, and temporal) were obtained by OCTA...

Several studies in the recent past reported new sources for industrial persistent organic pollutants (POPs) from metropolitan cities of India. To fill the data gap for atmospheric polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), polyurethane foam disk passive air sampling (PUF-PAS) was conducted along urban-suburban-rural transects in four quadrilateral cities viz., New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai from northern, eastern, western and southern India respectively. Average concentration of Σ8PBDEs in pg/m(3) for New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai were 198, 135, 264 and 144 respectively...

Objective: To evaluate the retinal and microvascular features using OCTA in children (<18 years) with amblyopia. Design, Setting, and Participants: This observational case-control study enrolled patients from September 1, 2016, through May 31, 2017, and was conducted from September 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017, at the Stein Eye Institute at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles)...

The classical HLA-C and the nonclassical HLA-E and HLA-G molecules play important roles both in the innate and adaptive immune system. Starting already during embryogenesis and continuing throughout our lives, these three Ags exert major functions in immune tolerance, defense against infections, and anticancer immune responses. Despite these important roles, identification and characterization of the peptides presented by these molecules has been lacking behind the more abundant HLA-A and HLA-B gene products...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Choroidal nevi are common benign intraocular tumors with a small risk of malignant transformation. This retrospective study investigates the use of en face spectral-domain optical coherence tomography angiography (SD-OCTA) in determining the clinical features and measurement of choroidal nevi. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with choroidal nevi were imaged with both OCTA and a fundus photography device. Greatest longitudinal dimension (GLD), perpendicular dimension (PD), and the GLD/PD ratio were assessed on each device...
