Application

2,3-Dimercapto-1-propanol has been used in synthesizing novel (2-substituted phenyl-1,3-dithiolan-4-yl) methanol (PDTM) derivatives, which are potent tyrosinase inhibitors. It can also be considered for developing new drugs against AIDS due to its ability to inhibit HIV-1 tat activity.

Lymphocytic airway inflammation is a major risk factor for chronic lung allograft dysfunction, for which there is no established treatment. We investigated whether azithromycin could control lymphocytic airway inflammation and improve allograft function. Fifteen lung transplant recipients demonstrating acute allograft

The authors designed and synthesized 17 (2-substituted phenyl-1,3-dithiolan-4-yl) methanol (PDTM) derivatives to find a new chemical scaffold, showing excellent tyrosinase-inhibitory activity. Their tyrosinase-inhibitory activities were evaluated against mushroom tyrosinase at 50 μM, and five of the PDTM derivatives (PDTM3, PDTM7-PDTM9
