" [I]n an August 22, 2014 report, Lemelson asserted that Ligand had 'issued 245 million in new debt, against tangible equity of just $21,000, giving rise to a debt to tangible equity ratio of 11,667 to 1 (that is $11,667 dollars [sic] in debt for every $1 in tangible common shareholder equity)' and that 'shareholders have only the protection of $21,000 in tangible equity to shield them from $245 million in debt' (the 'Tangible Equity Statement').
Since the nature of solvent may strongly influence the complexation of transition metal complexes in solution, we decided to study the complexation reaction of a recently synthesized pyrazoloisoindol derivative ligand, 2,3-dimethy[L.sup.-1],2-dihydro-8H-pyrazolo[5,1-a]isoindol-8-one, (Figure 1), with some transition metal ions in acetonitrile solutions.
