The antimicrobial properties of silver and copper nanoparticles were investigated using Escherichia coli (four strains), Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus (three strains). The average sizes of the silver and copper nanoparticles were 3 nm and 9 nm, respectively, as determined...

A method has been developed for the preparation of N-alkynylated sulfoximines involving the copper-catalyzed decarboxylative coupling of sulfoximines with aryl propiolic acids. A range of substituents on both the sulfoximidoyl moiety and the aryl group of the propiolic acid were...

Heavy metals in cells are typically regulated by PIB-type ATPases. The first structure of the class, a Cu(+)-ATPase from Legionella pneumophila (LpCopA), outlined a copper transport pathway across the membrane, which was inferred to be occluded. Here we show by...
