Our experiments were carried out in normal and streptozotocin-diabetic rats. The effects of sodium difluoroacetate (DFA) at the dose of 40 mg/kg daily were studied on the blood and retinal lactate levels; these effects were compared to those of an

The biotransformation and the hepato- and nephrotoxicity of the mercapturic acids (N-acetyl-1-cysteine S-conjugates) of three structurally related 2,2-difluoroethylenes were investigated in vivo in the rat. All mercapturic acids appeared to cause nephrotoxicity, without any measureable effect on the liver. The

Hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chitosan halogenated acetates were successfully synthesized from six different haloacetic acids and hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chloride chitosan (HACC) with high substitution degree, which are hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chitosan bromacetate (HACBA), hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chitosan chloroacetate (HACCA), hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chitosan dichloroacetate (HACDCA)

Ethers of trifluoroacetaldehyde hemiaminals can undergo dehydrofluorination under basic conditions to provide ethers of difluoroketene hemiaminals. The latter behave as equivalents of difluoroacetamide or difluoroacetate anions towards various electrophiles, yielding a range of difluoromethylcarbonyl products.
