For the first time the influence of the chirality of the gel fibers in protein crystallogenesis has been studied. Enantiomeric hydrogels 1 and 2 were tested with model proteins lysozyme and glucose isomerase and a formamidase extracted from B. cereus. Crystallization behaviour and crystal quality of these proteins in both hydrogels are presented and(More)
In this article, a complete study on the selectivity of titanocene(III) cyclization of epoxypolyprenes is presented. The requirements for the formation of six- or seven-membered rings during these cyclizations are determined, taking into account the different substitution pattern in the epoxypolyprene precursor. Thus, a complete selectivity to 6-exo or(More)
A novel one-pot synthesis of tri-substituted purines and the discovery of purine analogues with trypanocidal activity are reported. The reaction is initiated by a metal-free oxidative coupling of primary alkoxides and diaminopyrimidines with Schiff base formation and subsequent annulation in the presence of large N,N-dimethylamides (e.g.(More)
