NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Research Products announced today that it will add to its Chloroperoxidase (CPO) offerings a lower cost, industrial grade for application to organic syntheses such as oxidations and halogenations. Dr. Bryce Cunningham, President, said that "there has been an increased interest in CPO from industrial and pharmaceutical markets which has prompted us to establish a grade that better meets their needs."
Dr. Harold Durkin, Business Development Manager, describes Chloroperoxidase as a catalyst for oxidation of alcohols and double bonds that allows these reactions to proceed at room temperature to high yields without by-products. "This catalyst fits in well with the green chemistry movement and should be of particular interest to the fragrance industry where oxidation of primary alcohols to aldehydes is a key route to aroma chemicals."
The new industrial grade of liquid Chloroperoxidase is designated as Catalog #502 and has an Rz value of ~1.2 and a price of $7.50 per KU in gram quantities. Bio-Research Products already markets a liquid CPO (#501) and a lyo CPO (#503). Bio-Research Products' CPO enzyme is derived from Caldariomyces fumago.
Bio-Research Products also produces industrial grades of its Soybean Peroxidase (SBP) enzyme. SBP #514 (liquid) is useful for the polymerization of conductive polymers such as polyaniline and SBP #X516-IND (powder) is offered for the bioremediation of waste water and manure odors.
