Although the exact mechanism of this synthetic method is not clear, however, it's seems that boric acid by its weak Bronsted as well as Lewis acidity characters can activate the epoxide ring for heterolysis by Ac2O.
A similar association was estimated for heptachlor epoxide when comparing the highest quartile with the lowest quartile, although this was not statistically significant (OR for Q4 vs.
The epoxide hydrolysis was initiated by adding the preheated sEH solution (37[degrees]C for 5 min) to the substrate system, and the reactions was conducted for 5 min.

It aimed to determine the impact of a group of chemicals called "nitro fatty acids" on the activity of an enzyme called soluble epoxide hydrolase and the knock on effects on blood pressure.
Thus, in the case of ENR, the C-O bonds of epoxide with low bond dissociation energy [46] are the potential sites for facile bond rupture.
The study, supported by the British Heart Foundation, used mice to investigate the process by which these nitro fatty acids lower blood pressure, looking at whether they inhibited an enzyme known as soluble Epoxide Hydrolase which regulates blood pressure.
