Through a series of 19 additiona lreactions, lanosterol is converted to cholesterol. The first sterol intermediate, lanosterol, is formed by the condensation of the 30 carbon isoprenoid squalene, and subsequent enzymatic reactions define the ‘post-squalene’ half of the pathway. The conversion of lanosterol to cholesterol involves the reduction of the C-24 double bond, removal of three methyl groups at the C-14 and C-4 positions, and ‘migration’ of the C-8(9) double bond (Herman, 2003). Some of the enzymatic reactions must occur
The elimination half-life of Secobarbital in children is 2.7 to 13.5 hours. Secobarbital is found to have an elimination half-life of approximately 30 hours in adults. The drug has also been found to have a plasma half-life of 15 to 40 hours (mean 28 hours) in adults. Toxicity The drug is known to cause adverse reactions such as somnolence, agitation, hypoventilation, bradycardia, and headaches. Taking Secobarbital with alcohol or other CNS depressants has been shown to have the ability to increase the danger of complex behaviors and have the negative effect of producing additive CNS-depressant

Systemic IUPAC name: 4, 5-Epoxy-17-methylmorphinan-3,6diyl diacetate hydrochloride monohydrate Molecular Formula: C21H23NO5, HCL, H2O Common Street Names: Aunty Hazel, Black Dragon, Boy, dope, H, Smack or more commonly ‘Heroin’ CAS: 1502-95-0 Chemical Structure of Diamorphine Identification and Description of Structural Features3 The functional groups present in diamorphine hydrochloride are esters, ethers, alkenes, amine and an aromatic ring. Esters There are two esters present in diamorphine hydrochloride which are formed by acetylating morphine. Esters have the RCOOR’ functional group, as depicted in the diagram. Esters are formed by reacting an acid and an alcohol together. In the case of diamorphine hydrochloride, the two alcohol
Possible modifications sites are in a square in the structure. The modification of the structure to produce Flucloxacillin is: Flucloxacillin has a bulky and electron-withdrawing heterocyclic acylamino side chain which is responsible for narrow-spectrum, β-lactamase-resistant penicillin, acid-resistant characters of the Flucloxacillin. Synthesis of Flucloxacillin: Overview about synthesis: 1- Firstly 3-(2—chloro,6-fluorobenzene)-5-methyl isoxazole-4-formic acid (raw material) reacts with Phosphorus oxychloride by using a Catalysis of organic amine to generate acyl chloride 2- After that dissolve 6-APA (6-aminopenicillanic acid) and inorganic alkaline in H2O. 3- Then add drops of an acyl chloride solution which was obtained from the first step. 4- Add HCl acid (acidizing agent) after completing the reaction.
They are also formed as necessary intermediates of metal catalysed oxidation reactions. Figure 1 shows examples of common ROS and shows the number of orbiting electron. Atomic oxygen has two unpaired electrons in separate oribits in its outer electron shell making it susceptible to radical formation, and ROS form when oxygen is reduced by the addition of electrons4. ROS are produced naturally from many metabolic processes, but alcohol consumption can also induce oxidative stress3, due to changes in NAD+/NADH ratio due to alcohol metabolism. Oxidative stress can also be caused by excess exposure to UV light, leading to apoptotic or necrotic cell death, which can lead to skin ageing and be responsible for skin cancer and other cutaneous inflammatory disorders5.
Abstract In this experiment, the reaction kinetics of the hydrolysis of t-butyl chloride, (CH3)3CCl, was studied. The experiment was to determine the rate constant of the reaction, as well as the effects of solvent composition on the rate of reaction. A 50/50 V/V isopropanol/water solvent mixture was prepared and 1cm3 of (CH3)3CCl was added. At specific instances, aliquots of the reaction mixture were withdrawn and quenched with acetone. In addition, phenolphthalein was added as an indicator.
3. Results and discussion 4-Chloro-7-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazole (NBD-Cl) is an activated aryl halide that has been used as a chromogenic and fluorogenic reagent for the determination of many drugs with primary and secondary amino groups [22-24]. The reaction of NBD-Cl with LBT has not been investigated yet. LBT contain secondary amino group which can react with NBD-Cl in alkaline medium to form a yellowish green colored product. This derivative exhibited maximum fluorescence intensity at 540 nm after excitation at 476 nm (Figure 2), the maximum absorbance of the reaction product was measured at 480 nm (Figure 3).
Heme Alkylation: Drugs containing terminal double-bond (olefins) or triple-bond (acetylenes) can oxidized by CYPs to potent radical intermediates, which alkylate the prosthetic heme group and inactivate the enzyme. For example, allyl-isopropylacetamide (AIA) and ethinylestradiol. 2. Covalent Binding to Apoprotein: Covalent bonding of few drugs to apoprotein causes covalent modification of protein which results in loss of catalytic activity, only if essential amino acids are modified (Kamel et. al., 2013).
