The polyhydroxyalkanes 1,6,11,16-hexadecanetetraol (1) and 2,7,12,17-octadecanetetraol (2) were synthesized utilizing the thiophene ring as a scaffold to affix the hydroxyalkyl chains by lithiation of the acidic alpha-hydrogens and subsequent desulfurization. Both compounds exhibited significant anesthetic potency, individually and in additivity

In the present work a new, simple, rapid and environmentally friendly dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) method has been developed for extraction/preconcentration of some triazole pesticides in aqueous samples and in grape juice. The extract was analyzed with gas chromatography-flame ionization

An Escherichia coli strain was engineered to synthesize 1-hexanol from glucose by extending the coenzyme A (CoA)-dependent 1-butanol synthesis reaction sequence catalyzed by exogenous enzymes. The C4-acyl-CoA intermediates were first synthesized via acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase (AtoB), 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase (Hbd), crotonase (Crt)
