Using DNA as a key tool, the interdisciplinary team took gold nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes and arranged them in two and three dimensions to form optically active
Based on this information, many attempts have been carried out to synthesize optically active
polymers with a stable one-handed helicity from optically inactive achiral vinyl monomers, such as styrene and methyl methacrylate.
Among optically active
polymers, the cellulose derivatives represent an important class of modified natural polymers.
Shoichiro O, Lei L (1997) Chemoenzymatic Synthesis of Optically Active
The Ceramospher HPLC column features optical-resolution packing material with high selectivity created from a spherical clay mineral carrying an optically active
Barghoorn, Schopf and Meinschein found porphyrins related to chlorophyll and hemoglobin, microfossils and optically active
hydrocarbons in shale from the Nonesuch formation.
Led by Alon Gorodetsky, an assistant professor of chemical engineering and materials science, the team produced reflectin - a structural protein essential in the squid's ability to change color and reflect light - in common bacteria and used it to make thin, optically active
films that mimic the skin of a squid.
The chiral compound is optically active
1-phenylethanol or 1-phenylethylamine.
A combined enzymatic resolution and chemical polymerization strategy has been used to create optically active
Polymer-immobilized chiral catalysts and reagents have received considerable attention in regard to the organic synthesis of optically active
Since the porphyrin group--derived from chlorophyll--is optically active
, incorporating the porphyrin-phospholipid into the liposome should have allowed it to react with light.
1,2-O-isopropylidene glycerol (IPG) is an useful starting material for synthesis of important compounds, such as glycerophosfolipids, [beta]-blockers, prostaglandins, PAF (platelet aggregation factor) and many others [1, 2].
