Abstract:

Activity of cations of the transition metals in the formation of the S-S bond by oxidation is discussed. It depends on the electronic structure of the cation that allows or does not allow the formation of a bond by resonance between the atoms concerned, through the intermediary of a 3d orbit. The antagonism was studied during the exponential growth of bacterial colonies.
