Learn More Oxygen-containing Compounds
Oxygen-containing compounds include alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, ethers, and carboxylic acids and derivatives. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a range of oxygen-containing compounds and derivatives suitable for various research applications.
Learn More Fatty Acids
A fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with a long, unbranched aliphatic chain. The aliphatic chain may be either saturated or unsaturated. Chains of even-numbered length predominate in nature. In biology, fatty acids are usually derived from triglycerides or phospholipids.
Learn More Biochemicals
Biochemical refer to any chemical that is found in a biological system or that can be used for biological research. Biochemical compounds include molecules such as amino acids, vitamins, and nucleotides as well as organic and inorganic chemicals that have life science applications.
Learn More Coumarin and Coumarin Derivatives
Coumarins are small molecular weight, water soluble, UV-excitable, blue fluorescent dyes (emission range ~410 to 470 nm). They can be either cell permeable or cell impermeant depending on their structure; the more charged moieties that are on the dye he less cell permeable the molecule is.
Learn More Amino Acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of peptides and proteins. All amino acids contain an amine group, a carboxylic acid group, and a side chain that varies for each amino acid. The side chains differ in polarity and pKa and are important to both protein structure and function.
Learn More Nucleic Acids
Nucleosides are the structural subunit of nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA. A nucleoside is composed of a nitrogenous base covalently attached to a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose) and is either a pyrimidine (cytosine, thymine, or uracil) or a purine (adenine or guanine).
Learn More Organic Chemistry
Organic compounds are chemicals based on carbon. They were given the name "organic" in 1807 by John Jakob Berzelius because these compounds that make life possible, e.g., carbohydrates, fats (lipids), proteins, and nucleic acids, were originally thought to be derived only from living organisms as...
Learn More Sugars & Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic compounds in living organisms, as their major function is the storage and transport of energy. They also have important structural, informational, recognition, and protective functions.
Learn More Wine Quality Testing
Ensuring the quality of wine whether you are testing for contaminants or developing a new product, we are here to help. Our knowledge, innovative products, and range of solutions allow our customers to maintain their focus where it should be – delivering high-quality wine that consumers expect.
Organic acids are organic compounds that possess acidic properties. They do not fully dissolve in water, which makes them weak acids. Various industries use organic acids for corrosion treatment and prevention because they are minimally reactive to mineral acids.
Learn More Biobanking Resource Library
To ensure reproducible results and continuity in research and biomedical processes, today’s scientists are faced with the task of genetically stabilizing replicable materials such as living cells and organisms, and ensuring sub-cellular components such as nucleic acids and proteins are preserved...
Learn More Ligand Exchange HPLC Columns
Need a column to separate carbohydrates using dilute acid mobile phase? These polymeric ligand exchange columns utilize a range of counter ions to deliver selectivity required for the analysis of carbohydrates, organic acids, and sugar alcohols.
Learn More Labeling Chemistry
Fluorescent labeling of biomolecules enables researchers to detect specific components of complex biological assemblies with exquisite sensitivity in applications ranging from imaging and flow cytometry, to western blots.
Learn More Noyori Asymmetric Hydrogenation
In 1980, the Japanese Nobel prize-winning chemist Ryoji Noyori reported that BINAP (2,2'-bis(diphenylphosphino)-1,1'-binaphthyl) complexed with ruthenium [BINAP-Ru(II)] catalyzed the asymmetric hydrogenation of alpha-(acylamino)acrylic acids or esters to give the corresponding amino acid derivatives...
