Now available on Fast Track: Migration routes and stopover sites of Upland Geese (Chloephaga picta) in South America

Posted on 17. April, 2018.

The Upland Goose (Chloephaga picta picta) is a migratory species of South America, which breeds from September to April in Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) and winters from May to September in the southern Pampas (Argentina). Despite some protection in both countries, this species is still persecuted and large numbers are killed by unregulated hunting.

Microbial biotransformation of α-ionol

Posted on 26. February, 2018.

α-Ionol is a megastigmane derivative belonging to the most important odoriferous degradation products of β-carotene in plants and it contributes to the characteristic fragrances of many flowers.In this study, the microbial biotransformations of α-ionol by fungi were examined with the aim of producing new derivatives that could be used as potential flavour and fragrance ingredients.

Strong inhibition of the Fe3+ + H2O2 reaction by ethanol: evidence against the free radical theory

Posted on 25. February, 2018.

The effect of ethanol on the catalytic decomposition of H2O2 by Fe3+ was investigated. While expecting a simple competitive oxidation of C2H5OH, far more complex kinetics were encountered experimentally: already minute amounts of C2H5OH (1% of H2O2) had a powerful retardation effect on the disappearance of H2O2.

Stereochemical aspects of the hydrogenolysis of derivatives of terpenoid and steroidal allylic alcohols

Posted on 23. February, 2018.

Hydrogenolysis involves the replacement of a C–X bond by a C–H bond in a reaction in which X is typically a halogen, oxygen, sulfur, selenium or nitrogen or, less commonly, carbon. In some cases it may be difficult to distinguish between hydrogenolysis and the protonolysis of an organometallic intermediate.

Moonlighting proteins – nature’s Swiss army knives

Posted on 22. February, 2018.

The human body is an amazingly complex machine with billions of cells that work together to perform a vast number of biochemical processes, each requiring hundreds or thousands of protein machines to serve as the structures and to synthesise the components, convert food to the chemical energy, break down old components, regulate all these processes and coordinate with other components, cells, and organs.
