Metal Ions That Bind Sulfur Compounds
A more negative number for the Ksp in the following table indicates a more
tenacious binding to oxygen or sulfur. Thus, plutonium, having a more negative
value for oxygen and presumably sulfur has a greater theoretical potential
than the other metal ions for "negatively" influencing both, our responses
to the vitaletheine modulators and presumably our natural immunity against
cancer and other diseases.
