Disease relevance of Dimethylethylcarbinol

  • This strain, a gram-positive methylotrophic bacterium identified as Mycobacterium austroafricanum IFP 2012, was also able to degrade tert-amyl methyl ether and tert-amyl alcohol [1].
  • Hydrolysis of trifluoroethyl 6,6,6-trifluoro-5-(3'-indolyl)-4-thiahexanoate (2c) with the lipase of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (LIP) in a buffer containing 20% tert-amyl alcohol at 25 degrees C gave excellent selectivity (E=357) [2].
