Its chemically unreactive nature allows radon gas to travel freely through rock and soil.
Consequently, even reactive molecules tend to slide away without bonding or affecting gold's chemically unreactive surface, the researchers report in the July 20 Nature.
By demonstrating that chemically unreactive groups linked to an appropriate affinity group can be employed in the design of potent and selective inactivators of powerfully nucleophilic cysteine proteinases, the concept of affinity labels was extended beyond the notion of reactive biochemical and pharmacological reagents to include compounds which now hold forth the possibility of practical clinical endpoints.
