    Glycans on a modular principle: The combination of glycosynthase (His6BgaC/Glu233Gly) and glycosyltransferases [β1,4-galactosyltransferase-1 (β4GalT-1) and β1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (β3GlcNAcT)] facilitates the modular syntheses of a range of N-acetyllactosamine type 1 and type 2 oligomers. UDP=Uridine diphosphate, α(F)=α-galactopyranosyl fluoride.

  2. Diversity in Reduction with Short-Chain Dehydrogenases: Tetrahydroxynaphthalene Reductase, Trihydroxynaphthalene Reductase, and Glucose Dehydrogenase

    Playing the fla-violin: The transformation of flaviolin via the (S)-2,3-dihydroflaviolin intermediate results in cis-4-hydroxyscytalone and trans-4-hydroxyscytalone, which are known biologically active compounds. Thus, glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) provides unexpected activity towards nonsugar substrates. T4-/T3HNR= tetrahydroxy-/trihydroxynaphthalene reductase.

    Amination of ω-Functionalized Aliphatic Primary Alcohols by a Biocatalytic Oxidation–Transamination Cascade

    Mathias Pickl, Dr. Michael Fuchs, Dr. Silvia M. Glueck and Prof. Dr. Kurt Faber

    Article first published online: 3 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500589

    Five enzymes are better than one: Biocatalytic amination of ω-functionalized (fatty) primary alcohols is achieved, with up to >99 % conversion, by means of a one-pot cascade reaction that employs a long-chain alcohol oxidase and a transaminase.

  5. An Eco-friendly Soft Template Synthesis of Mesostructured Silica-Carbon Nanocomposites for Acid Catalysis

    Tintin and the sulfurous nanocatalysts: Sulfonic acid groups can be readily introduced to mesostructured silica-carbon nanocatalysts to reveal excellent acid-catalytic activities and selectivities for the dimerization of styrene to produce 1,3-diphenyl-1-butene and the dimerization of α-methylstyrene.
