For my science experiment this year I am going to inject melatonin into
potato tumors with the Agrobacterium tumifaciens tumor.  The problem is
that I need to get melatonin into liquid form.  What can I use to
dissolve it?  DMSO was recommended to dissolve the melatonin but it also
kills the tumor.  What about DMSO in a diluted form, may be 1:100 or
something?  Also acetic acid was recommended to me.  What would be a
good Ph?  Are there any other good solvents that can dissolve melatonin?
