The Sulfonamide Motif as a Synthetic Tool

Posted on 5. October, 2010.

Sulfonamides are well known motifs in medicinal chemistry, forming a large family of antibacterial agents as well as being found in numerous other drugs.  The chemistry of this functional group, however, is less well documented.  This review seeks to bring together the various applications and advantages of this motif in organic synthesis, which includes the sulfonamide as an activating group, protecting group, leaving group and as a molecular scaffold.

Scientists Get Bird's-Eye View of How Cuckoos Fool Their Hosts

Posted on 1. October, 2010.

Using field experiments in Africa and a new computer model that gives them a bird's eye view of the world, scientists have discovered how a bird decides whether or not a cuckoo has laid an egg in its nest.

Comparative Morphometry, Biochemical and Elemental Composition of three Marine Sponges (Petrosiidae) from Gulf of Mannar, India

Posted on 30. September, 2010.

Sponges (Porifera) are the most ancient metazoans with ubiquitous benthic distribution. They are distributed along all latitudes from intertidal to deep-sea.  Many sponge species produce toxic substances enabling their survival in competitive marine environments. Some of the metabolites have beneficial pharmaceutical effects for humans with anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic, antitumor, antibiotic and anti-viral activities (Scheuer, 1978-1983; Faulkner, 1984; Uemura et al., 1985; Kim et al., 1998; Gunasekera et al., 1990).

State of the Art of Photovoltaic Technologies

Posted on 28. September, 2010.

Our sun is the only sustainable energy source large enough to supply carbon-neutral energy to meet humanity’s entire energy demand. However, there is a large gap between Europe’s solar energy use (less than 1% of the total) and the enormous, untapped potential of the sun. There could be several reasons listed why it is so – social, political, technological – but the fundamental reason is insufficient efficiency of sunlight-to-energy conversion devices manufactured from inexpensive materials thus preventing large scale uptake. Along with thermal and photoelectrochemical sunlight-to-energy conversion, photovoltaics – an approach of converting sunlight directly into electricity – is probably most mature for contributing to the increasing renewable energy use.
