In recent years there has been a strong development of computational approaches to mechanistically understand organ growth regulation in plants. In this study, simulation methods were used to explore which regulatory mechanisms can lead to realistic output at the cell and whole organ scale and which other possibilities must be discarded as they result in(More)
It was found that benzothiazole, 2-oxybenzothiazole and 2-benzothiazolesulphonate were degraded in activated sludge systems. 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) was more resistant, although the first step in MBT degradation seemed to be transformation to the sulphonate form. At higher MBT concentrations, it was transformed into a disulphide, which accumulated in(More)
Integrating metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in microelectronics has disruptive potential because of the unique properties of these microporous crystalline materials. Suitable film deposition methods are crucial to leverage MOFs in this field. Conventional solvent-based procedures, typically adapted from powder preparation routes, are incompatible with(More)
A series of nine Ce(iv)-based metal organic frameworks with the UiO-66 structure containing linker molecules of different sizes and functionalities were obtained under mild synthesis conditions and short reaction times. Thermal and chemical stabilities were determined and a Ce-UiO-66-BDC/TEMPO system was successfully employed for the aerobic oxidation of(More)

Heck reactions were performed with 4-bromoacetophenone and n-butyl acrylate, yielding the trans-arylated acrylate ester with high selectivity. Pd–zeolite catalysts were compared with supported Pd metal catalysts. In order to obtain an active and heterogeneous catalyst, the preformed or in situ-formed catalytically active Pd0 species and the PdII(More)
Royal Society of Chemistry peer review process and has been accepted for publication. Accepted Manuscripts are published online shortly after acceptance, before technical editing, formatting and proof reading. Using this free service, authors can make their results available to the community, in citable form, before we publish the edited article. We will(More)
Thank you for the submission of your research manuscript to EMBO reports. It has been sent to three referees, and so far we have received reports from two of them, which I copy below. As both referees feel that the manuscript is interesting and recommend that you should be given a chance to revise it, I would like to ask you to begin revising your(More)
In the fine chemical industry, transfer hydrogenation of carbonyl compounds is an important route to selectively form the corresponding allyl alcohol. The Meerwein–Ponndorf–Verley reduction (MPV) is catalyzed by a Lewis acid catalyst and easily oxidizable alcohols serve as hydrogen donor. We successfully used the Zr-based metal-organic framework (MOF)(More)
Several strains capable of growth on 2-oxybenzothiazole (OBT) were isolated. They were all Gram-positive, spore-forming rods, tentatively identified as Bacillus species. Their mean generation time on OBT was 12 h with a cell yield coefficient of 0.63. The strains could also degrade benzothiazole but not 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) or its sulphonate form.(More)
