By Lawrie, Kirsten J Meredith, Paul; McGeary, Ross P ABSTRACT The isolation, structure determination and chemical characterization of eumelanins has been plagued by their very low solubility in organic solvents. To gain insights into the structure and reactivity of these unusual and important biologic macromolecules and to pave the way for their use in electronics, we have prepared soluble melanins via the synthesis of monomeric precursors containing lipophilic substituents. Two such...

By Jirovetz, Leopold; Buchbauer, Gerhard; Schmidt, Erich; Stoyanova, Albena S; Et al Abstract Commercially available geraniol and nerol, as well as some derivatives, were analyzed for their purity using GC and GC/MS. The olfactoric quality of the samples was evaluated by professional perfumers. Antimicrobial testings using an agar dilution and an agar diffusion method were done to obtain information about their activities against some Gram-(+) and Gram-(-) bacteria, as well as the yeast...

By Gupta, Neal S; Briggs, Derek E G; Pancost, Richard D Graptolites are important fossils in Early Palaeozoic assemblages. Preserved graptolite periderm consists dominantly of an aliphatic polymer, immune to base hydrolysis. It contains no protein even though its structure, and chemical analyses of the periderm of the living relative Rhabdopleura, indicate that it was originally collagen. This anomaly was previously interpreted as the result of replacement by macromolecular material from...
