Fast transport of HCl across a hydrophobic layer over macroscopic distances by using a Pt(II) compound as the transporter.


PMID 23882464

Abstract

[Pt(H-(ethyl)2-dithiooxamidate)2] plays the role of a HCl symporter, allowing fast HCl transport over macroscopic distances (cm scale) across a hydrophobic layer made of a chloroform solution, without any stirring. The process is limited by interfacial transfer, whereas HCl is transported within the hydrophobic phase at extremely high rates.
