A Treasure Trove for the Synthetic Chemist
News May 11, 2007
A range of tools for the synthetic chemist can be found on the new Asynt website. Asynt Ltd is a specialist company supplying a range of solutions for key processes like synthesis, purification and evaporation as well as an extensive library of molecular building blocks and intermediates from its US partner company Pharmacore.
Asynt’s popular DrySyn heating blocks offer key safety benefits over silicon oil baths and mantles for heating vials and flasks from 1ml to 5000ml. The DrySyn Cool achieves controlled cooling down to -30ºC without resorting to jacketed reaction vessels.
The website also introduces Asynt’s range of selected products from other universally respected brands in the field of laboratory synthesis all supported by Asynt’s own in-house team of applications specialists.
Tuberculosis (TB), an ancient and notoriously difficult disease to treat, has killed millions through the course of human history; and the antibiotics that have been used to fight the disease in recent history are becoming less and less effective. In the face of this reality, researcher Prof. Dennis Wright has improved upon a new way to thwart the tricky pathogen, mycobacterium tuberculosis.READ MORE
Researchers have solved the structures of the cancer-promoting enzymes USP25 and USP28, and identified significant differences in their activities. This knowledge provides the molecular basis for the development of new and highly specific anti-cancer drugs, with a low risk of side-effects.READ MORE
