In this article, we report the development and optimization of an industrial culture medium for the production of extracellular lipase in the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica. Until now olive oil in combination with glucose was used as the carbon source and inducer for the production of lipase. Our results demonstrate that methyloleate, a cheap hydrophobic(More)
The aim of the present paper is to demonstrate the importance of using complementary process analyzers (PAT tools) for the process monitoring, analysis, and understanding of freeze drying. A mannitol solution was used as a model system. Raman spectroscopic, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic, plasma emission spectroscopic, and wireless temperature(More)
In this paper we present a multi-modal web interface for autonomous mobile robots. The purpose of this interface is twofold. It serves as a tool for task supervision for the researcher and task specification for the end-user. The applications envisaged are typical service scenarios like remote inspection, transportation tasks or tour guiding. Instead of(More)
A stereoselective synthesis of coronafacic acid, a natural component of the phytotoxin coronatin, was achieved using an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction as the key step. The triene precursor bearing a substituted diene and a vinylketone as dienophile was synthesized and then tested in the thermal intramolecular cyclization. We have devised a new strategy(More)
In addition to their utility in Barton-McCombie deoxygenations, xanthates can engage in 5-exo-trig radical cyclizations to afford lactones after oxidative workup. In this paper, we describe a tin-free protocol that provides direct access to lactones via hydrolysis of labile thioketal intermediates. Analysis of several systems of varying complexity reveals(More)
