The mechanism of the reaction of the Tollens reagent

Posted on 21. December, 2011.

The Tollens test for aldehydes has been used for over 100 years but no reason has been given for adding sodium hydroxide to the silver nitrate before the solution is cleared with ammonia. In this paper, a mechanism is proposed which explains why the addition of alkali makes the test much more sensitive.

Atomic evidence: the foundations of structural molecular biology

Posted on 19. December, 2011.

David S. Goodsell is an Associate Professor of Molecular Biology at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA (E-mail: goodsell@scripps.edu). In his research, he develops computational tools to study the basic principles of biomolecular structure and function. He is author of the Molecule of the Month at the Protein Data Bank, which presents the structure and function of a new protein each month. His illustrated books ‘‘The Machinery of Life’’ and ‘‘Our Molecular Nature’’ explore biological molecules and their diverse roles within living cells, and his book ‘‘Bionanotechnology: Lessons from Nature’’ presents the growing connections between biology and nanotechnology.

A new labdane diterpene from Rauvolfia tetraphylla Linn. (Apocynaceae)

Posted on 24. November, 2011.

Rauvolfia tetraphylla Linn. (syn. R. canescens L., family: Apocynaceae) holds an important position in the Indian traditional system of medicine, and has other immense applications. This particular plant is regarded as a rich source of a wide variety of important alkaloid constituents such as reserpine, reserpiline, raujemidine, isoreserpiline, deserpidine, aricine, ajmaline, ajmalicine, yohimbines, serpentine, sarpagine, vellosimine and tetrphylline. However, there is no report on the terpenoid constituent from this plant, and we report the isolation from the air-dried stems and branches of R. tetraphylla and structural elucidation of a new labdane diterpene, 3-hydroxy-labda-8(17),13(14)-dien-12(15)-olide (1; Fig. 1) bearing  an unusual -lactone moiety.
