Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ) posted this:Photochemical metal-free method of amination of C-H bondsA new method for the metal-free amination of C-H bonds has been developed. The method uses readily available reagents (iodine, trilfuoromethylsuylfonamide, diacetoxyiodobenzene) and light to insert a sulfonamide moiety into a C-H bond. the method has been successfully used in the preparation of various APIs (memantine, rasagiline, sertraline). The method takes place in mild conditions and allows avoiding the use of transition metal catalysis and multiple-steps procedures. Partners are sought for the joint development of commercial applications of the method.

A support material is used, in a non-arranged way, increasing the active biomass accumulation capacity and allowing downwards flow in the digestion tank.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Holographic sensor for detection of adulterants in essential oilsThe research group of Holography and Optical Processing of the University of Alicante has developed a holographic technique for the detection of adulterants in essential oils. This technique is able to detect different types of adulterants qualitatively. In addition, a quantitative measurement of the degree of adulteration of an essential oil can also be performed by means of pre-calibration of the sensor for a particular adulterant. The sensor could be miniaturized and manufactured at a low cost compared to traditional methods of analysis such as gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography. The sensor can be used by unqualified personnel.

As in the case of the heating with microwave radiation, electrical energy is transformed into thermal energy. However, on contrary of heating with microwave radiation (penetration depth of microwave radiation in absorbing media is limited) the penetration depth is virtually unlimited and the extent of heating is regulated only by the spatial uniformity of electrical conductivity throughout the reaction medium and the time spent in the ohmic reactor. Thus, the direct scaling of the ohmic heating for the pilot or industrial scale shouldn’t have the limitations presented by microwave radiation heating. It is also possible to reduce reaction times and increase the energy efficiency of chemical reactions

Cracow University of Technology posted this:Suspension containing gold or silver nanoparticles or a mixture thereof and a production method thereofThe present invention relates to a process for the preparation of nanosilver and nanogold using an aqueous extract of dog rose, white grape and knotweed. Substances which were extracted from these plants act both as reducer of silver and gold ions and stabilizing agent of forming silver and gold nanodispersion, preventing them from agglomeration and inhibiting their growth, so that the resulting particle size does not exceed 100 nm.
University of Vigo posted this:Procedure for the extraction of biosurfactants contained in corn steep liquorsNowadays, most of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in the market contain chemically synthesized surfactants in its composition. In many cases, these surfactants are the same as those used in regular cleanup activities. In order to get more natural and biocompatible products, it would be interesting to include natural surfactants instead of chemical surfactants in the preparation of these pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. These biosurfactants are also present in the formulation of greener nanoparticles, replacing the chemical surfactants currently used in the preparation thereof. Most biosurfactants have antimicrobial activity, which would improve the properties of certain nanoparticles, as well as many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The main disadvantage of biosurfactants industrial production is related to the high cost compared to chemically synthesized surfactant production. The solution proposed by the Chemical Engineering research group at the University of Vigo, is the development of eco-friendly simple extraction of biosurfactant from a corn wet-milling industry byproduct, such as corn wash liquors, better known as "corn steep liquor (CSL)", which could compete in terms of cost production with its chemical counterparts.

Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia posted this:New method to produce trifluoromethyl copper reagents useful in trifluoromethylation reactions from fluoroformThe trifluoromethyl copper derivative useful in trifluoromethylation reactions is prepared at room temperature from readily available and cheap reagents and in high yield, i.e. without the formation of side-products associated to the fast decomposition of the trifluoromethyl anion, that usually forms in processes involving the deprotonation of fluoroform. This is the first method to date for deprotonation-free, direct cupration of fluoroform, a longly sought after reaction.
