	Dear collegues,

I am trying to make an assay with aminoacid pathways and i need to use
prephenic acid, I have to use it as the barium salt and I tried
unsuccesfully to solve it in water but at a 4 mM concentration it is not
possible. I also tried with a mixture of water:methanol (as I read it is
purified in this mixture) but is is not possible either. Heating the
solution does not help. I though that 4 mM was a low concentration, but it
seems this product is not soluble. 
Does anyone know in which solvent or mixture of solvent I could solve this
barium prephenate?

thanks very much in advance (Could you please send the answer to my mail
address, and to the group if you want)

Best regards,
