REVIEW–AMIIDE BOND

http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v480/n7378/full/nature10702.html#/f3 One of the most important reactions in organic chemistry—amide bond formation—is often overlooked as a contemporary challenge because of the widespread occurrence of amides in modern pharmaceuticals and biologically active compounds. But existing methods are reaching their inherent limits, … Continue reading

New bactericide derived from Isatin for treating oilfield reinjection water

http://journal.chemistrycentral.com/content/6/1/90/abstract Isatin, an extract from Strobilanthes cusia (Nees) Kuntze, was the base for synthesizing derivatives that were screened for antibacterial activity against oilfield water-borne bacteria. The bacterial groups are sulfate reducing, iron and total. The derivatives were characterized by spectrums … Continue reading

Development of Heterogeneous Catalysts for the Conversion of Levulinic Acid to γ-Valerolactone

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cssc.201200111/abstract Biomass-derived γ-valerolactone (GVL) can be used for manufacturing food, chemicals, and fuels. Numerous hydrogenation catalysts have been developed for the GVL synthesis, with heterogeneous systems arguably the most viable. We discuss current heterogeneous systems, with emphasis on catalyst innovation … Continue reading
