1. Síntese da Epoxone a partir de D-frutose: um experimento didático em laboratório de Química Orgânica com foco nos princípios da Química Verde
In recent years, the introduction of the Green Chemistry concepts in undergraduate chemistry classes has been intensively pursued. In this regard, the two-step preparation of Epoxone (an organocatalyst developed by Shi & col.) from commercial D-fructose, through ketalization of vicinal diols followed by oxidation of a sterically congested secondary alcohol,

2. Triagem, aplicação e engenharia de biocatalisadores para transformações enantio e regiosseletivas / Screening, applying and engineering biocatalysts for enantio and regioselective transformations
Biocatalysts have been widely applied in recent decades for industrial processes yielding high value products under environmentally friendly reaction conditions. The development of biocatalysts often begins with screening to identify enzymes with suitable activities followed by characterization of the enzymes chemo-, regio- and stereoselectivity or stability

3. Produção de polímeros derivados de fontes renováveis via catálise enzimática / Production of polymers derived from renewable sources by enzyme catalysis
A busca por materiais derivados de fontes renováveis e com características como biocompatibilidade e biodegradabilidade tem crescido significativamente nos últimos anos. A utilização de enzimas na polimerização representa um grande passo para a obtenção destes, visto que possibilitam a produção de polímeros evitando a utilização de catalisadore

4. One-pot synthesis of enantiopure syn-1,3-diacetates from racemic syn/anti mixtures of 1,3-diols by dynamic kinetic asymmetric transformation
A one-pot synthesis of enantiomerically pure syn-1,3-diacetates starting from readily accessible racemic diastereomeric mixtures of 1,3-diols has been realized by combining (i) enzymatic transesterification, (ii) ruthenium-catalyzed epimerization of a secondary alcohol in a diol or diol monoacetate, and (iii) intramolecular acyl migration in a syn-1,3-diol m

5. Degradation of Hydrocarbons by Members of the Genus Candida III. Oxidative Intermediates from 1-Hexadecene and 1-Heptadecene by Candida lipolytica
Candida lipolytica (Phaff) was grown in a mineral-salts medium amended with either 1-hexadecene or 1-heptadecene as substrate. Intermediates of the same chain length as the substrate were isolated and identified by various analytical procedures. The following intermediates of 16 and 17 carbon atoms were identified: ω-unsaturated acids, ω-unsaturated primar
6. Degradation of Hydrocarbons by Members of the Genus Candida II. Oxidation of n-Alkanes and 1-Alkenes by Candida lipolytica
Candida lipolytica ATCC 8661 was grown in a mineral-salts hydrocarbon medium. n-Alkanes and 1-alkenes with 14 through 18 carbon atoms were used as substrates. Ether extracts of culture fluids and cells obtained from cultures grown on the various substrates were analyzed by thin-layer and gas-liquid chromatography. Analyses of fluids from cultures grown on n-
7. Thermostable NAD-linked secondary alcohol dehydrogenase from propane-grown Pseudomonas fluorescens NRRL B-1244.
NAD-linked alcohol dehydrogenase activity was detected in cell-free crude extracts from various propane-grown bacteria. Two NAD-linked alcohol dehydrogenases, one which preferred primary alcohols (alcohol dehydrogenase I) and another which preferred secondary alcohols (alcohol dehydrogenase II), were found in propane-grown Pseudomonas fluorescens NRRL B-1244
8. Degradation of tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol by Ralstonia eutropha is initiated by an inducible pyrroloquinoline quinone-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase.
An organism tentatively identified as Ralstonia eutropha was isolated from enrichment cultures containing tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA) as the sole source of carbon and energy. The strain was able to tolerate up to 200 mM THFA in mineral salt medium. The degradation was initiated by an inducible ferricyanide-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) which wa
