Characterisation of plant tocopherol cyclases and their overexpression in transgenic Brassica napus seeds
Tocopherols, collectively known as vitamin E, are only synthesised in photosynthetic organisms. Tocopherol cyclase (TC) catalyses the formation of the chromanol headgroup of the various tocopherolExpand

N-heterocyclic carbene catalyzed domino reactions.
While organocatalyzed domino reactions or "organocascade catalysis" developed into an important tool in synthetic chemistry during the past decade, the utility of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) asExpand
