General description

1-Chloro-2-propanol is formed as an intermediate during the degradation of meso-bis-(1-chloro-2-propyl)ether by Rhodococcus sp. strain DTB.

Application

1-Chloro-2-propanol has been used as:
  • chemical intermediate for the manufacture of propylene oxide, a starting material for production of polyurethane polyols and propylene glycol
  • as α,β-halohydrin standard during the enzymatic synthesis of α,β-halohydrins from gaseous alkenes

The enzymatic synthesis of alpha,beta-halohydrins from gaseous alkenes is described. The enzymatic reaction required an alkene, a halide ion, dilute hydrogen peroxide, and a haloperoxidase enzyme. A wide range of gaseous alkenes were suitable for this reaction, including those containing...

Rhodococcus sp. strain DTB (DSM 44534) was grown on a mixture of (R,R)-, (S,S)- and meso-bis-(1-chloro-2-propyl) ether (BCPE) as the sole source of carbon and energy. During BCPE degradation 1'-chloro-2'-propyl-3-chloro-2-prop-1-enyl-ether (DVE), 1-chloro-2-propanol and chloroacetone intermediates were formed. The BCPE or...

In this paper, we report a facile method to fabricate silver nanowire array electrodes (SNAE) with ultra-high detection sensitivity to chloropropanol in the aqueous solution. Silver nanowire arrays were assembled in conventional anodic alumina membranes (AAM) by electrochemical deposition. Subsequently...

1. The metabolism of 1,2-dichloropropane in the rat has been investigated. The major urinary metabolite has been isolated and identified as N-acetyl-S-(2-hydroxypropyl)cysteine. Two minor metabolites of 1,2-dichloropropane have been identified as beta-chlorolactate and N-acetyl-S-(2,3-dihydroxypropyl)cysteine. 2. The fate of 1-chloro-2-hydroxypropane, a...
