Chemical formula and structure[edit]

I'm finding it difficult to ascertain the exact substance used in the experiments from the cited PLOS ONE paper (doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0060754): a systematic name is given for a molecule containing chlorine atoms, and a structure diagram is given (in figure 3A) for what appears to be a molecule containing a benzene bromine atom. Are there are any other sources that can be used to clarify which was the one used in this study? -- The Anome (talk) 10:41, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Vincent A. Fischetti from the PLOS paper told me that both compounds were used in the experiments. There isn't a WP:reliable source yet, as it seems, but I'm going to add that information anyway. Maybe there will be more papers on epimerox in the future... --ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 15:38, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
