Bedfont wins FDA nod for ToxCO carbon monoxide monitor
British medical device firm Bedfont said today that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its ToxCO breath analysis monitor designed to measure exhaled carbon monoxide to indicate levels of CO in the blood. The newly cleared system is intended for use in triaging cases of CO poisoning as it provides instant results at the point-of-care, the Maidstone, UK-based company said. Samples can be taken via a low-cost mouth piece or a face mask option for patients who are either unconscious or injured, the company said. The system also automatically samples the ambient air and alarms when CO in the environment reaches a harmful level. &l...

Terminal coordination of diatomic boron monofluoride to iron
Boron monofluoride (BF) is a diatomic molecule with 10 valence electrons, isoelectronic to carbon monoxide (CO). Unlike CO, which is a stable molecule at room temperature and readily serves as both a bridging and terminal ligand to transition metals, BF is unstable below 1800°C in the gas phase, and its coordination chemistry is substantially limited. Here, we report the isolation of the iron complex Fe(BF)(CO)2(CNArTripp2)2 [ArTripp2, 2,6-(2,4,6-(i-Pr)3C6H2]2C6H3; i-Pr, iso-propyl], featuring a terminal BF ligand.

The Sommerfeld ground-wave limit for a molecule adsorbed at a surface
Using a mid-infrared emission spectrometer based on a superconducting nanowire single-photon detector, we observed the dynamics of vibrational energy pooling of carbon monoxide (CO) adsorbed at the surface of a sodium chloride (NaCl) crystal. After exciting a majority of the CO molecules to their first vibrationally excited state (v = 1), we observed infrared emission from states up to v = 27. Kinetic Monte Carlo simulations showed that vibrational energy collects in a few CO molecules at the expense of those up to eight lattice sites away by selective excitation of NaCl’s transverse phonons. The vibrating CO molecul...
