Purification of organic compounds by surfactant mediated preparative hplc

A sample is provided that can be purified by preparative reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (prep-rp-hplc) in a single run in spite of recent advances in the production of reversed phase derivatized silica stationary supports: (1) the traditional approach is to use a bigger column (greater amount of stationary phase); and (2) use displacement chromatography which (while labor intensive to develop) uses the stationary phase more effectively. This disclosure describes a unique prep-rp-hplc technique that uses a c-18/c-8 derivatized silica coated with a surfactant such as triton x-100 to result in 7 to 10 fold increase in sample loading (of the crude mixture of organic compounds including synthetic crude peptides) in contrast to the conventional prep-rp-hplc technique.

Process for the industrial synthesis of lurasidone

Disclosed is a process for the industrial synthesis of lurasidone from (1r,2r)-cyclohexane-1,2-diyldimethanol (1), 3-(piperazin-1-yl)benzo[d]isothiazole (3) and (3ar,4r,7r,7as)-3a,4,7,7a-tetrahydro-4,7-methanoisobenzofuran-1,3-dione (6).). Said process is optimised to obtain lurasidone with high yields and high purities by preparing highly pure synthesis intermediates, using critical raw materials and reagents in amounts close to the stoichiometric amounts, increasing productivity and reducing the costs and environmental impact of the process..

Simulation device for an electronically controlled braking apparatus (bbw), and applying a contrast action

A simulation device for an electrically controlled braking apparatus of a vehicle with an electric motor having a motorised axis slant in relation to the translation axis of the strut of the pedal group, a contrast body connected to the strut, a main abutment wall and an elastic contrast element, disposed between the main abutment wall and the contrast body. The method of applying the contrast action to the pedal provides for activating, when the flattening action of the pedal by the user is terminated, the motor to achieve an inactive configuration in which the useful distance of maximum compression of the elastic contrast element is minimal..

Ultrasound stimulation of pancreatic beta cells

A pancreatic beta cell stimulation system for stimulating release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells can include an ultrasonic transducer configured to be acoustically coupled to a body of a user; and an ultrasound controller configured to be in communication with the ultrasonic transducer so as to provide control signals to the ultrasonic transducer during operation. The ultrasound controller can be further configured to generate the control signals based on a planned amount of stimulation of pancreatic beta cells within the body of the user such that the control signals instruct the ultrasonic transducer to transmit ultrasound waves having selected intensity and frequency calculated to cause stimulation of the pancreatic beta cells..
