Triketone herbicides are inhibitors of 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD), a key enzyme of the tyrosine transformation pathway, common for plants and animals. One of these herbicides, 2-[2-nitro-4-(trifluoromethyl)benzoyl]-1,3-cyclohexanedione (NTBC), is so selective and efficient that it can be applied as a medicine in a hereditary metabolic(More)
ABSTRACT The synthesis of a novel supramolecular system comprising of branched polyethylenimine and cyclodextrin, is presented. The synthesis route is based on the self-assembly phenomena with the inclusion of solvent molecules. The systems are formed by a hydrogen-bonding network and host-guest type interactions between the building blocks. It was found(More)
