Biodegradation of 4-(1-nonyl)phenol by axenic cultures of the yeast Candida aquaetextoris: identification of microbial breakdown products and proposal of a possible metabolic pathway
Findings suggest that C. aquaetextoris might metabolise pNP via terminal oxidation of the alkyl chain, followed by a β-oxidation pathway, and a novel metabolic route for the microbial degradation of 4-(1-nonyl)phenol, at least in certain yeasts is proposed.
Improved preparation of 2,3:5,6:3′,4′-tri-O-isopropylidenelactose dimethyl acetal and its 6′-O-(1-methoxy-1-methylethyl) derivative
Abstract Efficient preparations both of 2,3:5,6:3′,4′-tri- O -isopropylidenelactose dimethyl acetal ( 5 , 95% yield) and its 6′- O -(1-methoxy-1-methylethyl) derivative (65% yield), useful
Fusarium oxysporum degradation and detoxification of a new textile-glycoconjugate azo dye (GAD).
An isolate of Fusarium oxysporum was used to degrade and to detoxify a new chemical class of textile dyes called Glycoconjugate Azo Dye, resulting in non-toxic metabolite production.
Stereoselective Synthesis of 4-O-(2-Acetamido-2-Deoxy-β-D-Talopyranosyl)-D-Glucose Derivatives from Lactose
ABSTRACT The 6-O-trityl derivative of 2,3:5,6:3′,4′-O-isopropylidenelactose dimethyl acetal (1) was converted through an oxidation/oximation/reduction sequence involving the free 2-OH group of the
'Naturalization' of textile disperse dyes through glycoconjugation: the case of a bis(2-hydroxyethyl) group containing azo dye.
A family of five strictly related glycoconjugated azo dyes (GADs), characterized by the presence of the same chromophore and a variable number (1-4) of deprotected hexose units, has been prepared by
Acid-catalyzed and enzymatic hydrolysis of trans- and cis-2-methyl-3,4-epoxytetrahydropyran
Whereas the acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of trans- and cis-3,4-epoxy-2-methyltetrahydropyran gives the corresponding diols by opening both at C-4 and C-3 (64% attack at C-4 in the trans-epoxide, 86% in
Intramolecular aldol cyclization of L-lyxo-hexos-5-ulose derivatives: a new diastereoselective synthesis of D-chiro-inositol.
Abstract The DBU-promoted intramolecular aldol condensation of two partially protected l - lyxo -hexos-5-ulose derivatives ( 8 and 9 ), in turn obtained starting from methyl β- d -galactopyranoside,
4,6-O-benzylidene-D-glucopyranose and its sodium salt: new data on their preparation and properties.
Evidence is presented in favour of the hypothesis that crystalline BGNa exists entirely in its beta-anomeric form and that it can be useful in the access to beta-glucosides in reactions with strong electrophiles under strictly heterogeneous conditions.
