At this stage, the complex is believed to have lost one molecule of ammonia in which case either the thiocyanate ion or one molecule of 2- mercapto pyridine becomes a bridge between the dimerized Rhenium.
GSH is an important non-protein mercapto compound in body tissue, and can be combined with free radicals and heavy metals to protect the thiol enzyme and hemoglobin from oxidative damage (Pompella et al., 2003).
The present invention relates to a rubber composition for tires, including: a modified diene rubber A which has been terminally modified with a specific acrylamide compound; a modified diene rubber B which has been modified with a silicon or tin compound and a specific modifying compound or with the modifying compound; and a silane coupling agent containing a mercapto group, the modified diene rubbers A and B, taken as a whole, having a weight average molecular weight falling within a specific range.
