Hydroperoxide-induced toxicity in isolated hepatocytes: contribution of thiol oxidation and lipid peroxidation.
Glinski J, Chavepeyer G, Platten JK, Smet P (1995) Surface properties of diluted aqueous solutions of tert-butyl
In addition, tert-butyl
acetate was incorporated at weight percentages of 10%, 20%, and 30%.
ether (MTBE), Environmental Health Criteria.
A warning system showed the chemical, a petrol additive called Methyl tert-butyl
ether, had overheated.
This result is consistent with the polarizabilities of tert-butyl
and 1-adamantyl, respectively -0.
Miller expected to find the gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl
ether (MTBE) in large cities, for example, but he and his colleagues also found the chemical in groundwater far from urban locales.
The procedure involves preextraction with XAD-2 resin, elution with tert-butyl
methyl ether, hydrolysis with [beta]glucuronidase from Escherichia coli, extraction with n-pentane, and derivatization at 60 [degrees]C for 60 min with a solution containing 1 mL of N-methyl-N-(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide, 2 [micro]g of [NH.
researchers are evaluating the performance of phytoremediation in treating methyl tert-butyl
ether (MtBE) contaminated groundwater at a former gas station in Houston, Texas.
In order to study the factors affecting cis/trans isomerization in proline-containing peptides, professor William Lubell, MCIC, and his group at the Universite de Montreal have prepared unnatural proline mimics containing a tert-butyl
Up to 20 percent of the fuel, including all the oil, passes through unburned and is released into the water, contaminating it with benzene, toluene and the gasoline additive MTBE (methyl tert-butyl
ether), all possible human carcinogens.
Incidentally, the little Berkeley company created - on a small scale - a cheap, simple way to strip methyl tert-butyl
ether out of polluted water.
