The Synthetic Ones from the Author: Lionel Roberts. Is there a Destiny? Does Fate impose a limit? What Barrier stands between man and the creation of life? Since the legendary failure of the ill-fated Frankenstein, man has tried time and time again to pass those limits. He has created androids, clumsy robots of flesh and blood. He has made men of metal and servants of plastic, with wheels for limbs and magnetic tapes for voices. Man has made things by cross breeding the animal kingdom and destroying Nature's intentions...but man has never yet made man. Or has he? Forbisher thought that he had the answer. It wasn't a clumsy Synthetic. It wasn't an Android, or a Robot, it was a real flesh and blood human being. The beautiful woman in his arms was the product of a laboratory experiment, not the result of a natural biological process. But how could he prove it?

2 Substituted 1 3 Dioxan 5 Ones from the Author: . This dissertation deals primarily with synthesis, reactions and synthetic applications of 2-substituted- 1,3-dioxan-5-ones. This class of compounds could be viewed as synthetic equivalents of natures building block--1,3-dihydroxyacetone and could be used in construction of many polyoxygenated natural products. A general, simple, cheap and easy to scale-up synthesis of 2-substituted-1,3dioxan-5-ones was developed. The yields of this three-step procedure, starting form commercially available tris(hydroxymethyl)nitromethane, ranged from 40 to 90%. The exploration of the chemistry of 2-substituted-1,3-dioxan-5-ones was focused on carboanion chemistry of these compounds. 2-Substituted-1,3-dioxan-5-ones were shown to easily form corresponding lithium, boron and titanium enolates. The 2-'tert'-butyl-2-methyl-1,3-dioxan-5-one was deprotonated enantioselectively in 90% e.e. with the aid of chiral lithium amide derived from (R)- or (S)-'N'-(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)-1-phenylethylamine. This successful outcome was a result of extensive methodological studies. The enolates reacted readily with electrophiles: reactions with aldehydes provided 'anti' aldols in modest to high selectivities in cases of lithium and boron enolates and 'syn' aldols in case of titanium enolate. The enolates could be conveniently trapped as trimethylsilyl enol ethers or as enol acetates, however they failed to react with alkylating agents. The problem was solved using Enders' chiral hydrazone method. The synthetic utility of 2-substituted-1,3-dioxan-5-ones was illustrated in syntheses of (+)-frontalin and several protected ketohexoses. Additionally, the kinetics of deprotonation of a simple ketone with lithium diisopropylamide was investigated in order to shed some light on the mechanism of this type of reaction. The reaction was shown to be first order in ketone and half order in the base, and half order in the base, which suggests a monomer-based mechanism.

Food Colorants from the Author: Carmen Socaciu. Drawing on the expertise of internationally known, interdisciplinary scientists and researchers, Food Colorants: Chemical and Functional Properties provides an integrative image of the scientific characteristics, functionality, and applications of color molecules as pigments in food science and technology, as well as their impact on health. The book emphasizes the structure-function relationships of pigment molecules to explain biosynthesis, modifications and degradation during storage and processing, and the effect of these changes on quality and safety. Understanding the rate and nature of degradation assists in selecting optimum processing parameters. Beginning with an overview of the physics and biochemistry of color, the book focuses on the mechanics of pigment stability and bioavailability, and antioxidant and pro-oxidant action. It reviews the influence of pigments on health and metabolism, incorporating results of in vivo and in vitro studies. It addresses the occurrence of pigment in food matrices and their stability during processing and storage. Conventional technologies as well as new, environmentally friendly methods are presented along with recent advances in biotechnology to produce colorants. There is also a chapter on novel approaches to the biosynthesis of colorants by microalgae, microorganisms, and genetic engineering. Contributions give significant attention to analytical methods and recent advances in detecting both natural and synthetic colorants, their quality, quantity, and degradation during processing and storage. The book rounds out its comprehensive coverage with a look at quality and safety risk assessments and international regulations, as well as lists of formerly and newly approved colorants and additives. Peer reviewed contributions and critical evaluations ensure a concise, systematic presentation of the relationships between the chemical nature and functional properties of various natural and synthetic pigments used to color food.

Competing Comparative Constructions In Europe from the Author: Thomas Stolz. This in-depth areal-typological study analyzes the grammatical means which are employed in the languages of Europe to express the comparative of inequality/superiority. The extant theories and hypotheses about the morphosyntactic structure and the cross-linguistic distribution of construction types are reviewed. The behavior of comparatives under the conditions of language contact is discussed. Data from more than 170 standard and nonstandard varieties of European languages are scrutinized systematically. The synchronic picture is complemented by a chapter on the diachrony of comparative constructions. The European facts are compared to those of the geographically adjacent Asian and African regions. It is argued that cross-linguistic investigations must take account also of so-called secondary options. These secondary options suggest strongly that the supposedly dominant role of the particle comparative cannot be upheld for Europe. Moreover, only the secondary options allow us to draw isoglosses which cross the borders between Europe and Asia (and Africa).

Systems Biology And Synthetic Biology from the Author: Pengcheng Fu. The genomic revolution has opened up systematic investigations and engineering designs for various life forms. Systems biology and synthetic biology are emerging as two complementary approaches, which embody the breakthrough in biology and invite application of engineering principles. Systems Biology and Synthetic Biology emphasizes the similarity between biology and engineering at the system level, which is important for applying systems and engineering theories to biology problems. This book demonstrates to students, researchers, and industry that systems biology relies on synthetic biology technologies to study biological systems, while synthetic biology depends on knowledge obtained from systems biology approaches.
