Topical dissolution of cholesterol gallbladder stones using methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is useful in symptomatic patients judged too ill for surgery. Previous studies showed that ethyl propionate (EP), a C5 ester, dissolves cholesterol gallstones rapidly in vitro, but differs from

Ethyl propionate is a model for fatty acid ethyl esters used as first-generation biodiesel. The atmospheric chemistry of ethyl propionate was investigated at 980 mbar total pressure. Relative rate measurements in 980 mbar N(2) at 293 ± 0.5 K were

There is a discrepancy between in vitro cholesterol dissolving efficacy of methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and ethyl propionate and cholesterol gall stone dissolution in vivo. This study investigated whether the presence of bile changes the cholesterol dissolving capacity of MTBE and

A novel synthesis of Hantzsch-type N-substituted 1,4-dihydropyridines from salicaldehydes, ethyl propiolate, and amines has been developed. Salicaldehydes were treated with ethyl propiolate in the presence of N-methylmorpholine to give ethyl 3-(2-formylphenoxy)propenoates. Three equivalents of ethyl 3-(2-formylphenoxy)propenoates reacted with 1 equiv

We performed experiments in anesthetized piglets with two cholesterol gallstone solvents, methyl tert-butyl ether and ethyl propionate, to determine whether blood levels of either solvent would increase during gallbladder instillation of these solvents under conditions simulating gallstone dissolution.
