The digitonin that we have (from Fisher) is very hard to dissolve in water
solution: It requires dissolving in MeOH and then adding dropwise to the
water solution. Boiling brings it into solution, but it comes out of
solution, in part, again when the solution cools. I wish to avoid the
possible interference from having 4% MeOH in my solution, and so ask if
there is a watersoluble form of digitonin? Or how to make it go into
