Reaction Kinetics of Catechol (1,2-Benzenediol) and Guaiacol (2-Methoxyphenol) with Ozone.[Pubmed: 26053029]

The kinetic reactions of 1,2-Benzenediol (catechol) and 2-methoxyphenol (guaiacol) with ozone were studied in a simulation chamber (8 m(3)) under dark conditions. The values (in cm(3) molecule(-1) s(-1)) determined for 1,2-Benzenediol and guaiacol under dry conditions are (13.5 ± 1.1) × 10(-18) and (0.40 ± 0.31) × 10(-18), respectively.

Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors: guaiacol and catechol derivatives effectively inhibit certain human carbonic anhydrase isoenzymes (hCA I, II, IX and XII).[Pubmed: 25373500]

A series of phenolic compounds, including guaiacol, 4-methylguaiacol, 4-propylguaiacol, eugenol, isoeugenol, vanillin, syringaldehyde, 1,2-Benzenediol, 3-methyl catechol, 4-methyl 1,2-Benzenediol and 3-methoxy catechol were investigated for their inhibition of all the catalytically active mammalian isozymes of the Zn(2+)-containing CA (EC All the phenolic compounds effectively inhibited human carbonic anhydrase isoenzymes (hCA I, II, IX and XII), with Kis in the range of 2.20-515.98 μM. The various isozymes showed diverse inhibition profiles. Among the tested phenolic derivatives, compounds 4-methyl 1,2-Benzenediol and 3-methoxy 1,2-Benzenediol showed potent activity as inhibitors of the tumour-associated transmembrane isoforms (hCA IX and XII) in the submicromolar range, with high selectivity. The results obtained from this research may lead to the design of more effective carbonic anhydrase isoenzyme inhibitors (CAIs) based on such phenolic compound scaffolds.
