The hop [alpha]-acids isomerize to the corresponding "iso-[alpha]-acid" under a variety of reaction conditions.
This kinetically preferred bromination product isomerizes readily to thermodynamically more stable E, Z-BrMe isomers, with temperatures on the order of 130 [degrees] C promoting rearrangement as well as HBr elimination to conjugated diene (6).
Hydro-Isomerization, meanwhile, selectively isomerizes n-paraffins and introduces branching (typically 1-2 branches per chain) into both paraffins and cyclo-paraffins as shown by proton NMR [6].
