Thallium (I) acetate can be prepared by dissolving thallium (III) oxide in acetic acid and acetic anhydride and stirring at 80-90oC. After filtration, the solution cooled and the product is recrystallized. A study reports that a large number of mycoplasmas and acholeplasmas can grow in its presence at concentration of 1 mg/ml.
Commonly used in the laboratories as a selective element against gram-negative bacteria in selective media for the detection of mollicutes. It may be used in synthesizing thallium derivatives.

A histopathological study, with a light microscope, of experimental neuromyopathy produced by thallotoxicosis was undertaken in 40 newborn Wistar rats. Treatment consisted of a single i.p. injection of an aqueous solution of 16 mg kg-1 thallium(I) acetate 1 day after...
Specimens from the cervix or posterior vaginal fornix of 50 women attending a venereal disease clinic and from the urethra of 50 men with nongonococcal urethritis were cultured for Mycoplasma hominis. Recovery of the organism in two conventional mycoplasma culture...

Endplate potentials (EPP's) and miniature endplate potentials (MEPP's) were recorded from neuromuscular junctions of the mouse phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparation, blocked by high Mg++ (12 X 10(-3) mol/l)-Ringer. Superfusion of the preparations with Mg++-Ringer solutions containing thallium acetate (5 X 10(-4)...
