Kinetic study on lipase-catalyzed esterification in organic solvents


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 C

A twin inhibition is observed for the esterification reaction between ethanol and isovaleric acid using immobilized lipase from Rhizomucor miehei in hexane and in mixed solvent system. The observed bi-substrate inhibition pattern follows a Ping-Pong Bi-Bi mechanism with dead-end inhibition of enzyme by both the substrates. An increase in Km value for alcohol in mixed solvent (0.645 M) than in hexane (0.256 M), indicates that the enhanced solvation of ethanol in mixed solvent results in lower degree of inhibition.

IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D

Reactions of monoalkyltin(IV) trichloride with sodium salts of pyridinecarboxylic acid in 1:3 stoichiometry yields complexes of the type RSn(O2CPy)3 (R=PhCH2, 2-ClC6H4CH2, 4-ClC6H4CH2, Py=2-pyridinyl, 3-pyridinyl, 4-pyridinyl). All the complexes have been characterized by elemental analyses, IR and 1H, 13C and 119Sn NMR spectroscopy. The crystal structure of monobenzyltin(IV) 2-pyridinecarboxylate has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. In this complex, the central tin atom is rendered seven-coordinate in a distorted pentagonal bipyramidal geometry.
