Application

δ-Valerolactone (tetrahydro-2H-2-pyranone or δ VL) can be used as a monomer unit in the synthesis of poly(δ-valerolactone)s poly(conjugated ester)s via ring-opening polymerization.
It can also be used as a starting material in the synthesis of (+)-guadinomic acid , sodium δ-hydroxyvalerate , methyl δ-hydroxyvalerate , and 5-hydroxyvaleraldehyde.

We present the synthesis of discrete functionalized polyester nanoparticles in selected nanoscale size dimensions via a controlled intermolecular chain cross-linking process. The novel technique involves the controlled coupling of epoxide functionalized polyesters with 2,2'-(ethylenedioxy)bis(ethylamine) to give well-defined nanoparticles with narrow

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles are protective against atherosclerosis. However, HDL function is impaired in metabolic syndrome (MetS) due to low-grade inflammation and dyslipidemia. Foods containing polyphenols, such as grapes, may prevent HDL dysfunction via antioxidant or anti-inflammatory effects. We evaluated

A new synthetic method of spirooxindole derivatives has been developed by way of a palladium-catalyzed decarboxylative cyclization of gamma-methylidene-delta-valerolactones with isatins. By employing a newly prepared phosphoramidite ligand, the reaction proceeds smoothly with excellent diastereoselectivity. Preliminary results of its application
