But in a fermenting cell, the out-of-the-ordinary benzaldehyde is attracted to the next step of the energy pathway: NADP +.
Hypothesis: The reaction conducted on benzaldehydes with electron-donating substituents should result in even larger shifts towards the products of the secondary and tertiary Leuckart reactions.
Hypothesis: The reaction conducted on benzaldehydes with electron-withdrawing substituents should result in a less pronounced shift towards the products of the secondary and tertiary Leuckart reactions.
Hypothesis: The reaction conducted on electron rich benzaldehydes should result in even larger shifts towards the products of the secondary and tertiary Leuckart reactions.
Hypothesis: The reaction conducted on benzaldehydes with electron-withdrawing substituents may produce lower yields of the by-products (substituted N,N-dibenzyl-N-methylamines) and higher yields of the main products, substituted N-benzyl-N-methylformamides.
They can be obtained from the respective substituted benzaldehydes via the intermediate substituted benzylformamides.
