Direct determination of cadaverine in the volatile fraction of aerobically stored chicken breast samples

To supplement the currently used methods for poultry meat shelf life assessment, it might be necessary to develop a technique for rapid headspace analysis of volatiles with no prior sample preparation step. Biogenic amines, in particular cadaverine, are considered meat spoilage indicators. Described in this article are the results of a preliminary investigation of the...

Synthesis of 2-alkylthio-N-(quinazolin-2-yl)benzenesulfonamide derivatives: anticancer activity, QSAR studies, and metabolic stability

A new series of 2-alkylthio-N-(quinazolin-2-yl)benzenesulfonamide derivatives have been synthesized and evaluated in vitro for their antiproliferative activity by MTT assay against cancer cell lines HCT-116, MCF-7, and HeLa as well as the NCI-60 human tumor cell lines screen. In NCI screen, three compounds inhibited approximately 50% growth of RPMI-8226 and A549/ATCC cell lines...

Umbelliferone instability during an analysis involving its extraction process

Umbelliferone (7-hydroxycoumarin) is one of the most popular compounds of the coumarins family. This compound receives the attention of scientists due to its diverse bioactivities in a number of applications in various therapeutic fields. An interesting aspect of umbelliferone is its structural lability. The enzymatic degradation process of umbelliferone to its hydroxylated...

One-pot synthesis of triazines as potential agents affecting cell differentiation

This paper outlines the synthesis of a number of structural analogs of 3-[(4,6-diphenoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]benzoic acid which represent compounds with potential cardiogenetic activity. A one-pot protocol was developed for swift functionalization of the 1,3,5-triazine core without the need of isolating intermediates. The developed route starts from readily available 2,4,6...

Benzil/triethylamine: a photo-reducing system for Cu2+

We have investigated the photo-induced reduction of Cu2+–Cu0 using benzil/triethylamine mixtures. The formation of elemental Cu is indicated by the appearance of its characteristic plasmon absorption peaks at 515 nm and 620 nm. Importantly, the nature of the counterion of the Cu2+ salt affects the reduction process. In the presence of Cl−, the reduction proceeds faster than with...
