The fungal conversions of sulfur-containing heterocyclic compounds were investigated using the lignin-degrading basidiomycete Coriolus versicolor. The fungus metabolized a series of sulfur compounds--25 structurally related thiophene derivatives--via several different pathways. Under primary metabolic conditions, C. versicolor utilized thiophenes, such as...

Dihydro-2(3H)-furanones (gamma-butyrolactones) and dihydro-2(3H)-thiophenones (gamma-thiobutyrolactones) containing fluoroalkyl groups at positions C-3, C-4, and C-5 of the heterocyclic rings were prepared. The anticonvulsant/convulsant activities of the compounds were evaluated in mice. Brain concentrations of the compounds were determined and the effects...

Effects of alkyl-substituted gamma-butyrolactones and gamma-thiobutyrolactones on [35S]t-butylbicyclophosphorothionate (35S-TBPS) dissociation from the picrotoxinin receptor were studied. Unlike picrotoxinin, these lactones accelerated the dissociation rate of 35S-TBPS. Thus, previous reports that these lactones change the Kd but not the Bmax of...

Poly(ester-alt-sulfide) (polymer 1) was synthesized by the alternating copolymerization of glycidyl phenyl ether (GPE) with gamma-thiobutyrolactone (TBL) catalyzed by either quaternary onium salts or crown ether complexes. The copolymerization proceeded to produce polymer 1 with good yields in neat or...
