Chemistry and Biology of Hyaluronan

It used to be most likely the French chemist Portes, who first suggested in 1880 that the mucin within the vitreous physique, which he named hyalomucine, behaved another way from different mucoids in cornea and cartilage. 54 years later Karl Meyer remoted a brand new polysaccharide from the vitreous, which he named hyaluronic acid.

Such bonds may be treated theoretically by either molecular orbital (MO) theory or valence bond (VB) theory (see introductory material). 4 VALENCE BOND (VB) THEORY This theory postulates that bond formation occurs as two initially distant atomic orbitals, each containing one valence electron of opposite spin, are brought into proximity to each other. As the overlap of the atomic orbitals increases, each electron is attracted to the opposite nucleus eventually to form a localized two-center, two-electron bond at a distance between the atoms corresponding to a minimum in the potential energy of the system (see Morse curve, Sect.

10. The oxidation numbers of carbon and sulfur in various compounds. The atoms inside the curves between atoms are in each case the more electronegative atoms, and the bonding electrons are, therefore, associated with those atoms in determining the oxidation numbers. qxd 5/17/2005 32 5:13 PM Page 32 BONDS BETWEEN ADJACENT ATOMS atoms it is ϩ1. For monoatomic ions, the oxidation number is the same as the charge on the ion. For a neutral compound (all the compounds shown in Fig. , they have no net charge), the sum of the oxidation numbers of all atoms must equal zero.
