Habitat re‐creation strategies for promoting adaptation of species to climate change
Creation of new habitat could help species respond to climate change by facilitating range expansion in fragmented landscapes. However, there are currently no guidelines for deciding where newExpand

The thio-adduct facilitated, enzymatic kinetic resolution of 4-hydroxycyclopentenone and 4-hydroxycyclohexenone.
The addition of 3,4-dimethoxybenzyl thiol 8, as a benzyl thiol surrogate, to racemic 4-hydroxycyclopent-2-enone 2 and 4-hydroxycyclohex-2-enone 15 gave the corresponding cis-adductsExpand

The chemical modification of glycosaminoglycan structure by oxygen-derived species in vitro.
The effect of reactive oxygen species (ROS) on the chemical structure of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) was studied in order to consider their role in connective tissue damage during an inflammatoryExpand
