Biotransformations of water insoluble substrates in aqueous, two-phase and encapsulated systems /
(Brock University, 1999-05-21)
The biotransformation of water insoluble substrates by mammalian and bacterial cells has been problematic, since these whole cell reactions are primarily performed in an aqueous environment The implementation of a ...
Investigation of regio- and sterochemistries of microbial biotransformation /
(Brock University, 1997-05-21)
Epoxides can be hydrolyzed by fungi to produce chiral diols. The first part of this thesis presents an investigation of the microbial hydrolysis of aziridines comparable in structure to epoxide biotransformation substrates. ...
Total synthesis of (S)-4-hydroxy-[a]-Lapachone
(Brock University, 1994-07-09)
(S)-4-Hydroxy-a-lapachone has been prepared for the first time. The commercially available compound 2-acetyl-1-naphthol was used as the starting material. The synthesis involved methylation, followed by Baeyer-Villiger ...
