Polymers formed by the self-assembly of a bis(urea)-based polymer, 2,4-bis(2-ethylhexylureido)toluene (EHUT), in organic solvents such as octane are promising systems with remarkable rheological properties. This is the first self-assembled polymer recently reported as a hydrodynamic drag reducer for hydrocarbons. The

For this sensitive RIA for 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, we used antibodies to 1 alpha,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol-3-hemisuccinate conjugated to bovine serum albumin, raised in rabbits. These antibodies show a high affinity for 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 but cross react with other vitamin D metabolites
