General description

EMPLURA® is our low-cost alternative to high-purity qualities. With EMPLURA we offer a range of solvents for a plurality of basic applications in non-regulated industries and for less demanding applications, preparative laboratory work and cleaning purposes. EMPLURA solvents provide adequate specifications with the most important parameters.

Application


  • Development of a green, concise synthesis of nicotinamide derivatives catalysed by Novozym® 435 from Candida antarctica in sustainable continuous-flow microreactors: Highlights the use of tert-Amyl alcohol in enzymatic reactions, offering a greener alternative for synthesizing complex molecules in pharmaceutical research (Sheng et al., 2024).

  • Enzymatic Synthesis of Ascorbyl Palmitate in a Rotating Bed Reactor: Discusses the role of tert-Amyl alcohol in creating stable environments for enzyme-catalyzed reactions, enhancing product yield and process efficiency in biochemical applications (Holtheuer et al., 2023).

  • Effects of magnetic fields on the enzymatic synthesis of naringin palmitate: Investigates how tert-Amyl alcohol can be used to enhance the solubility and reactivity of substrates in biocatalytic processes, critical for industrial biotechnology applications (Zhang et al., 2018).

  • Ethyl esters production catalyzed by immobilized lipases is influenced by n-hexane and ter-amyl alcohol as organic solvents: Explores the effectiveness of tert-Amyl alcohol as a co-solvent in biodiesel production, demonstrating its impact on enzyme activity and stability in biofuel research (Borges et al., 2020).
