Disease relevance of adamantan-1-ol

  • Among 470 strains tested, Streptomyces griseoplanus was highly regioselective to give 1-adamantanol (0.096 mmol) from adamantane (0.3 mmol) in a 32% molar conversion yield after 72-h cultivation in the presence of 3% (v/v) Tween 60 [1].

High impact information on adamantan-1-ol

  • The activation energies for the C-H cleavage step are 6.9 kcal/mol in the 1-adamantanol pathway and 8.4 kcal/mol in the 2-adamantanol pathway, respectively, at the B3LYP/6-311++G level of theory, whereas those of the second reaction step corresponding to the rebound step are relatively small [2].
  • The available database for OH-stretching bands of jet-cooled aliphatic alcohol dimers is extended to systems including 1-adamantanol and 2-adamantanol, using a heated pulsed nozzle coupled to an FTIR spectrometer [3].
