Application

VenPure® SF (Sodium borohydride powder) is a mild reducing agent used in the reduction of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols. It is generally inert to other functional groups such as epoxides, esters, nitriles and lactones. Along with carboxylic acid, it forms acyloxyborohydride, which is a versatile reducing agent to reduce indoles, quinolones, imines, enamines, oximes and enamides.

Profiling of oxylipins from young maize roots revealed complex patterns of products mainly originating from the combined actions of 9- and 13-lipoxygenases and allene oxide synthase (AOS). A distinctive feature was the high content of the cyclopentenone 10-oxo-11-phytoenoic acid (10-oxo-PEA)....
