1.Bacterial metabolism of para- and meta-xylene: oxidation of a methyl substituent.
Davey JF, Gibson DT. J Bacteriol. 1974 Sep;119(3):923-9.
Pseudomonas Pxy was isolated on p-xylene as sole source of carbon and energy. Substrates that supported growth were toluene, p-methylbenzyl alcohol, p-tolualdehyde, p-toluic acid, and the analogous m-methyl derivatives, including m-xylene. Cell extracts prepared from Pseudomonas Pxy after growth with either p-xylene or m-xylene oxidized the p- and m-isomers of tolualdehyde as well as p-methylbenzyl alcohol. The same cell extracts also catalyzed a "meta" fission of both 3- and 4-methylcatechol. Treatment of Pseudomonas Pxy with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine led to the isolation of two mutant strains. Pseudomonas Pxy-40, when grown on succinate in the presence of p-xylene, accumulated p-toluic acid in the culture medium. Under the same conditions Pseudomonas Pxy-82 accumulated p-toluic acid and also 4-methylcatechol. When Pseudomonas Pxy-82 was grown on succinate in the presence of m-xylene, 3-methylcatechol and 3-methylsalicylic acid were excreted into the culture medium.
2.The complete assignment of the 13C NMR spectra of lasalocid and the sodium salt-complex of the antibiotic.
Seto H, Westley JW, Pitcher RG. J Antibiot (Tokyo). 1978 Apr;31(4):289-93.
All thirty-four signals observed in the 13C nmr of both the free acid form (Ia) and sodium salt (Ib) of the polyether antibiotic lasalocid have been assigned. This was achieved using model compounds such as 3-methylsalicylic acid, the retroaldol ketones from both lasalocid and lysocellin and a gamma-lactone from a third polyether, salinomycin. The last assignments to be made were accomplished using biosynthetically enriched samples of the antibiotic.
3.Synthesis and characterisation of tungsten(VI) oxo-salicylate complexes for use in the chemical vapour deposition of self-cleaning films.
Cross WB1, Parkin IP, White AJ, Williams DJ. Dalton Trans. 2005 Apr 7;(7):1287-93. Epub 2005 Mar 3.
Tungsten(VI) oxo-salicylate complexes were prepared in moderate yield (47 to 63%) by the reactions of WOCl4 and two equivalents of either 3-methylsalicylic acid (MesaliH2) or 3,5-di-isopropylsalicylic acid (di-i-PrsaliH2). Performing the reaction in refluxing toluene afforded the two analogous ditungsten complexes 1, [{WO(Mesali)(MesaliH)}2(mu-O)], and 2, [{WO(di-i-Prsali)(di-i-PrsaliH)}2(mu-O)], however in refluxing hexane the mononuclear tungsten complex , [WO(di-i-Prsali)(di-i-PrsaliH)Cl], was isolated. The single crystal X-ray study of revealed a pseudo-octahedral geometry around the tungsten centres. Aerosol assisted chemical vapour deposition of or afforded brown tungsten trioxide thin films. These films were converted to yellow fully oxidised WO3 on annealing in air at 550 degrees C for 30 minutes. The yellow WO3 films demonstrate preferred orientation on the substrate and show interesting functional properties-photo induced hydrophilicity and photocatalytic activity.
