THE ALMOST-MAGIC CIRCLE Following on the overview of synthetic worlds in
part 1,the first task in part 2 is to explicitly discuss the relationship between
synthetic worlds and our world. I suppose the easiest distinction to make would
be that the synthetic world is not real, but our world is real, and there is no
relationship between the two. If I felt that were the case, I could stop this chapter
right here. Indeed, I could give up the whole manuscript and go do something
more entertaining.

For the typical synthetic chemist the use of a heterogeneously catalyzed reaction
usually involves the finding of a seemingly appropriate "recipe" to follow and the
resignation to settle for whatever yield may be obtained. With other synthetically
viable reactions a basic mechanistic understanding can frequently be used to
modify the reaction conditions in order to optimize product formation. Such an
approach is not readily applied to heterogeneously catalyzed processes because
the ...

The aim of synthetic chemistry of stable nitroxides is the selective design of
various structures containing the nitroxyl group in a molecule. The presence of
the nitroxyl group in a molecule is thus the only feature defining the object of this
field and distinguishing this field from general synthetic chemistry regarding its
aims and tasks. The definition of the object is therefore indiscriminative, because
it covers the most diverse organic compounds, both cyclic and acyclic in which
structure ...

1 Approaches and Rationale for the Design of Synthetic Antioxidants as
Therapeutic Agents Craig E. Thomas Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis,
Indiana I. INTRODUCTION Over the eons, numerous physiological processes
and biological organelles have developed that allow existence in a precarious
aerobic environment. Even though molecular oxygen is absolutely required to
provide the fuel [e.g., adenosine triphosphate (ATP), reduced form of
nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide ...

Liquid chromatography of synthetic dyes is less complicated and less
problematic than the analysis of natural pigments. The number of individual
natural pigment fractions in any matrix may be high, sometimes over 30–40
different molecules. Natural pigments in the same matrix can be structurally
similar, which makes difficult their separation, or they can be structurally highly
different necessitating gradient elution techniques which increases considerably
analysis time because of the ...
