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. ...
Biotransformation of aromatic hydrocarbons and organic sulphides by fungi
(Brock University, 1987-10-02)
Toluene is converted to benzyl alcohol by the fungi Mortierella isabellina and Helminthosporium species; in the latter case, the product is further metabolized. Toluene-a -d 1 , toluene-a,a-d2, and toluene-a,a,a-d 3 ...
Biotransformation of polycylic aromatic compounds by fungi and an investigation into the oxidation of alkylbenzenes by Mortierella isabellina NRRL 1757
(Brock University, 1985-07-09)
Incubations of several polycyclic heteroaromatic compounds and two polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons with a series of common fungi have been performed. The fungi Cunninghamella elegans ATCC 26269, Rhizopus arrhizus ATCC ...
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 ...
