A refiner with a lot of capacity for good quality alkylate might be able to blend avgas without the lead, adjust the aromatics and deliver a 94UL without sweating, while its competitor either won't be able to match it or will chose not to because the margin's not worth the effort.
When the second reagent is added, CABA is released and alkylates the sulfhydryl groups of Hcy and Cys.
Albemarle's AlkyStar catalyst, together with CB&I's novel reactor scheme, produces high-quality alkylates, a clean fuels blending component, without the use of liquid acid catalysts in the alkylate manufacturing process.
These approaches will be taken: a) to increase selectivity by 1) screening of ligands against LTR G-4s to select the best hits among libraries of G-4 ligands; 2) conjugation of the most promising leads to modified nucleic acids complementing LTR G-4 loop/flanking regions, to deliver the drug to its target; b) to stabilize binding by conjugation of the ligands to 3) an alkylating/cleaving subunit, and 4) an activable moiety (such as quinone methides) that alkylates the target only once the drug has reached it.
