General description

Formic acid is the simplest carboxylic acid. Crystal structure study by single-crystal X-ray diffraction technique at -50°C has shown that it has an orthorhombic structure with space group Pna. The photodegradation of formic acid has been investigated using ab intio calculations and time-resolved Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Its utility as a fuel in direct fuel cells has been studied. The momentum distribution for its monomer have been evaluated by electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS).

Reversible thiol oxidation of cysteine residues occurs in many intracellular catalytic and signaling processes. Here we describe an optimized protocol, which can be completed in ∼5 d, to unambiguously identify specific cysteine residues that are transiently and reversibly oxidized by...
