Wagener, "Modeling Branched Polyethylene: Moreover,these catalysts can also be used in metathesis of water-insolublesubstrates in classical organic solvents, allowing for easypurication of product and catalyst reuse.
Representatives of this class of compounds are the catalysts described by Hoveyda et al. Changes in ligand and complex design were made to optimize these catalysts for olefin polymerization. Polymer Chemistry, 41, The alkylation reaction wasselective and aected only the less crowded piperazinic nitrogenatom Scheme 3.
For this reason, an increase in the degree of polymerization DP can be achieved by addition of LiCl. With increasing charge,the hemolytic activity is only slightly affected; however theactivity against S. Examples ofsuch catalysts are shown in the second and third row in Fig.
R1 and R2 denote hydrophobic groups, R3 is the hydrophilic group. The result of thisstructural modification on the biological properties is sum-marized in Figure 5a.
Independentei B, Bucharest, P. Lienkamppoly1a did not improve upon addition of more charge, yetthe polymer became more active against S.
When dye-leakage studies fail to model cell-SMAMP in-teractions, this can indicate that other components of thecell structure are important, which are not adequately mod-eled by the simple bilayer membrane, such as the peptido-glycan cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria, and the doublemembrane structure of Gram-negative bacteria, or that theSMAMPs have other major targets besides the membrane.
In our protocol condensation of salicylaldehydes with aliphatic amines was carried out in THF at reflux; 2 hr. Academic Press,pp.
Synthesis succeeded through the well-established two-step procedure employing the commercially available Ru-dimer [ p-cymene RuCl2]2 from which one of the p-cymene Ru-units was cleaved by addition of the Tl-salt of an aliphatic or aromatic salicylaldimine  Scheme 1.
The use ofwater as a solvent for metathesis has signicance for biologicalapplications, which are recently increasing in number. The catalysts of the general formula B are known in principle. As men-tioned below, this also influences the selectivity valuesthat are reported.
For example, pure cardiolipin vesiclesare most commonly used to mimic Gram-positive S. These efforts have resulted inthe design of relatively simple macromolecules; one ex-ample are the synthetic mimics of antimicrobial pep-tides SMAMPs that capture the central physicochemi-cal features of their natural archetypes irrespective ofthe specific folded form.
The effect of charge: View Article Online Catal. Epand, Biochem-istry43, The metathesis reaction is advantageously carried out in the same solvent as the hydrogenation reaction so that the degraded nitrile rubber does not have to be isolated from the solvent after the degradation reaction is complete before it is subjected to the subsequent hydrogenation.
As the biological properties of a SMAMPresult from the interplay of many parameters, it is not yetpossible to predict the exact properties of such moleculesfrom their mere chemical structure. To do so, instead of using ligands with already presenthydrophilic groups, we decided to form quaternary ammoniumFig.
SMAMPs were developed to emulate the properties of anti-microbial peptides AMPswhich are natural moleculesproduced by many organisms as part of their innate immunesystem. They contain a face with hydrophilic, positivelycharged groups blue and a hydrophobic face green.
Additional characterization data is included. Wan Hussin and Y. The last step, quaternization of the preformed metalcomplex, allows for very simple isolation of the resulted highlypolar catalyst.Substituted Polyacetylenes: Synthesis, Properties, and Functions.
Substituted Polyacetylenes: Synthesis, Properties, and Functions Full Article Stimulated by the rise of Ru carbene catalysts for ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of cycloalkenes.
Ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) is a controlled polymerization method, 25 the simplicity and versatility of which has allowed its use in industrial processes. 26 In terms of available monomers, ROMP has been most successful with strained cyclic olefins, a major group of which are norbornenes (including oxa- and aza-norbornenes.
