The polyhydroxyalkanes 1,6,11,16-hexadecanetetraol (1) and 2,7,12,17-octadecanetetraol (2) were synthesized utilizing the thiophene ring as a scaffold to affix the hydroxyalkyl chains by lithiation of the acidic alpha-hydrogens and subsequent desulfurization. Both compounds exhibited significant anesthetic potency, individually and in additivity

An Escherichia coli strain was engineered to synthesize 1-hexanol from glucose by extending the coenzyme A (CoA)-dependent 1-butanol synthesis reaction sequence catalyzed by exogenous enzymes. The C4-acyl-CoA intermediates were first synthesized via acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase (AtoB), 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase (Hbd), crotonase (Crt)

Phase behavior, dynamics, and structure of W/O microemulsions of the system aqueous solution/Synperonic 13_6.5/1-hexanol/isooctane were studied, with the goal of determining their effect on Mn-Zn ferrite nanoparticle formation, kinetics and characteristics. Microemulsion structure and dynamics were studied systematically by conductivity

Production of green chemicals and fuels using metabolically engineered organisms has been a promising alternative to petroleum-based production. Higher chain alcohols (C4-C8) are of interest because they can be used as chemical feedstock as well as fuels. Recently, the feasibility
