The whole-cell biocatalyst displaying Candida antarctica lipase B (CALB) on the yeast cell surface with alpha-agglutinin as the anchor protein was easy to handle and possessed high stability. The lyophilized CALB-displaying yeasts showed their original hydrolytic activity and were applied...

1-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidinone (VP) oligomers bearing a lactate group at one end (PVP-L) were obtained by chain-transfer controlled radical polymerisation carried out in the presence of ethyl L-lactate as chain-transfer agent (CTA). Their number-average molecular weights were in the range 1500-4000 with...

The organic solvent dimethyl-sulfoxide (DMSO), as a commonly used vehicle for nonadhesive liquid embolics, is not devoid of local angiotoxic effects. We compared microvascular toxicities of superselective infusions of DMSO with potentially more compatible solvents in swine rete mirabile. Fourteen...

Development of efficient, scalable routes for the synthesis of (S)-3-[5-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl]-2-m-tolyl propionic acid, a selective cholecystokinin 1 (CCK 1) receptor antagonist, is described. A key feature of the scale-up route is a concise construction of the complete pyrazole framework in a...
