The Properties of Cobalamins with Sulphur-containing Ligands
David Dolphin and Johnson, A.W.
J. Chem. Soc.
Cobalamins with sulfur-containing ligands have been examined, and the physical and chemical properties of the compounds have been shown to be intermediate between those of cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12 ) and methylcobalamin. Photolysis of the sulfur-containing. cobalamins is described as well as reactions with mineral acids, cyanide, chloramine-T, and alkylating agents.
