In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

Sporomusa termitida reduced caffeate (1mM) in anaerobic, two-liq. phase, reaction systems contg. either tetradecane or 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate {[bmim][PF6]}(20 vol./vol.). The initial rate and final product yield were 20 and 7% lower, resp., in [bmim][PF6]. Since caffeate partitioned only into the aq. phase, the lower rate cannot be attributed to mass transfer barriers. Therefore, [bmim][PF6] inhibited the biocatalyst, perhaps unsurprisingly since it is very polar and hydrolyzes to produce HF. [on SciFinder (R)]
