Product Focus – Novel Phenazines

Produced naturally by a range of bacteria and commonly synthesised via the Wohl-Aue reaction, phenazines are a class of nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds of wide interest. They have shown potential in biotechnological roles based on their ability to shuffle electrons and have also displayed antibiotic, antitumor and anti-parasitic activity.   Appl Microbiol Biotechnol. 2010;86(6):1659-1670. doi:10.1007/s00253-010-2509-3   […]

Product Focus – Fluorinated Building Blocks

Fluorine is the most electronegative of the elements and bonds very strongly to most other elements, including carbon, hydrogen and silicon. In combination with its relatively small steric footprint, this means that fluorine atoms can exert powerful effects within molecules and drastically alter their behaviour. Incorporating fluorine into organic molecules may impart enhanced metabolic stability, […]
