Structure and cleavage of monosodium urate monohydrate crystals
MetadataShow full item record
The structural study of monosodium urate monohydrate, as the principal component in gout stones, reveals that a simple and biocompatible way to breakdown the crystals into polymerised molecules at pH of 7.4 (the acidity of normal human blood) is to peel off them along the  direction by sonication.
