As part of a project to study different methods for the disinfection of effluent water, the inactivation of different microorganisms (Escherichia coli, Deinococcus radiodurans and spores of Bacillus subtilis) using a combination of a photosensitizer (Rose Bengal) with simulated sunlight and oxygen was determined under various environmental conditions(More)
Some characteristics of regioselectivity and acceptor tolerance in transglycosylation reactions, catalysed by a crude culture filtrate from Thermoascus aurantiacus, were examined by employing methanol and monosaccharides as acceptors. When beta-D-mannopyranosyl fluoride was employed as the donor, the anomeric configuration of the newly formed bond was found(More)
A fast method for the simultaneous detection of different glycosidolytic activities in commercially available enzyme preparations and crude culture filtrates was found in using, as substrate, a mixture of different glycosyl fluorides and 19F NMR spectroscopy as a screening technique. Accompanying studies regarding the hydrolytic stability of these fluorides(More)
Results obtained over the past decade concerning the introduction of the fluorine atom into carbohydrate molecules, either by nucleophilic substitution or electrophilic addition reactions, are summarised. The first section mainly deals with the triflate/fluoride tandem sequence and the DAST-reaction. In the discussion, emphasis is given to the dependency of(More)
The PROPHIS facility is an efficient tool for the synthesis of chemicals with moderately concentrated sunlight on a semi-technical scale. The feasibility of selected solar photochemical reaction classes--including heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions--has been demonstrated using various set-ups of the plant. This paper outlines the potential of solar(More)
Relativistic ionization phenomena induced by strong laser light have become a topic of current interest [1–8]. In the nonrelativistic theory it is assumed that the electron velocity in the initial bound state as well as in the final state is small compared with the speed of light. However, the electrons may be accelerated up to relativistic velocities in an(More)
