Covalent compounds, which are strong alkylating or acylating agents, may initiate the cationic polymerization of heterocycles.
Court states that it would not have been obvious to those of ordinary skill in the art to choose the particular acid claimed as an acylating agent for the known amine simply because the particular acid was unknown except for Ochiai's disclosure in the patent application.
This new technology may have to await additional work, as the safety and toxicology of chemically reactive agents themselves (several alkylating agents, diazonium compounds and acylating agents are known to have carcinogenic, mutagenic, skin sensitizing and allergenic properties), and the FDA status of chemically modified drug active ingredients (such as sunscreen active ingredients) after such ingredients have been attached to human skin.
1997) have confirmed that the yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) SLC1-1 gene encodes an sn-2 acyltransferase capable of acylating sn-1-oleoyl-lysophosphatidic acid using a range of acyl-CoA thioesters, including 22:1-COA.
To compensate for possible differences in the reactivity of the acylating agent with primary and secondary amines, differing detector responses toward the amide derivatives formed with each analyte, and the expected differences in biofluid concentrations of MDMA and MDA, we deemed it appropriate to select two internal standards.
Reactions of aromatic N-oxides with enamines of cyclohexanone in the presence of acylating agents.
However, a careful examination of the data [7] shows that the discrimination against the modification of the a-amino group occurred only with bulky acylating reagents.
When comparing the results obtained in EPG85-257 cells for compounds 1-4, it can be suggested that the presence of acylating groups at C-3 and C-16 is important for the cytotoxic activity of lathyrane diterpenes in multidrug-resistant EPG85-257RDB cells, since the presence of free hydroxyl groups at these positions decreased the activity.
as the acylating agent, at 30[degrees]C under continuous stirring (150 rpm) in an orbital shaker.
1996) Examining the effect of acylating agents as rate-accelerating additives (Malmstrom et al.
Ester interchange involving alkyl esters have been described rather slow and required a large excess of acylating agent to shift the equilibrium towards formation of the desired compound [27].
It was found that three acylating agents (acetic anhydride and s uccinic anhydride and benzoyl chloride) and ( -)-a rctigenin were added into the methylene dichloride heated at 38-40 and acylations were performed at the C -OH (C4') (Sche me-2).
