The balanced equation isn't balanced (for instance 6 Cls on the left give 2 on the right) (talk) 16:05, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

The third reference needs clarification. As of now, I am unable to find that citation on JACS. Pdphan 02:48, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Try clicking on the doi? It works for me. --Rifleman 82 06:10, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for making the change! Looks great now. Pdphan 04:15, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Is this compound useful for artificial blood?[edit]

This is suggested by the text but not explicitly discussed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:17, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

You might check out Blood substitute. Vaska's complex attracted a lot of attention because it reversibly forms an adduct with O2, but other compounds that are simpler and look a little more like myoglobin also bind O2. I think that the best systems are fluorocarbons that simply dissolve a lot of oxygen. --Smokefoot (talk) 02:00, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
