General description

Toluene, a benzene analog, is widely employed as an organic solvent. It has been reported to be a biotoxic solvent (toxic to many microorganisms at 0.1%v/v concentrations). Its anaerobic biodegradation to CO2, by the denitrifying bacterium Thauera arornatica has been reported. It forms a syndiotactic polystyrene-toluene molecular compound. Crystal structure of this molecular compound has been investigated by X-ray diffraction studies.

Application

Toluene may be used as a doping agent during the quantitative estimation of triacylglycerols (TAGs) by liquid chromatography-atmospheric pressure photoionization-mass spectrometry (LC-APPIMS). It has been reported to improve the sensitivity of analysis. It may be used as solvent for the preparation of 4-arm polylactide-based (PLA) star oligomer.

Screening for Estrogen Active Nonylphenols in Water by Planar Solid Phase Extraction – Planar Yeast Estrogen Screen

Nonylphenols (NP) are ubiquitous substances that have been detected in highly diverse foodstuff. As breakdown products of nonylphenol ethoxylates, NP could end up in the aquatic environment. This article presents a rapid method for NP detection in surface water by planar solid phase extraction – planar yeast estrogen screen (pSPE-pYES).

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
