Project @ a Glance Contents on the CD Rom
  • Glyoxal is an organic compound with the formula OCHCHO. It will be an yellow-coloured liquid and also smallest dialdehyde.
  • Glyoxal, difunctional low mole weight aldehyde, is a highly reactive intermediate used for the preparation of copolymers, dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, corrosion inhibitors and photographic chemicals.
  • The preparation of anhydrous glyoxal entails heating solid glyoxal hydrate(s) with phosphorus pentoxide.
  • Glyoxal may be formed in the degradation of glucose by retroaldol condensation reactions activated by deprotonation of the 2- or 3-hydroxy groups.
  • Commercial glyoxal is prepared either by the gas phase oxidation of ethylene glycol in the presence of a silver or copper catalyst or by the liquid phase oxidation of acetaldehyde with nitric acid.
  • Glyoxal oxidase is a copper metalloenzyme produced by the wood-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium as an essential component of its extracellular lignin degradation pathways.
  • Glyoxal oxidase (GLOX), an extracellular H2O2-generating enzyme produced by Phanerochaete chrysosporium, is thought to be an important partner in the ligninolysis catalyzed by the fungal lignin (Lip) and manganese peroxidases (MnP).
  • In the field of cellulose ether chemistry the treatment with glyoxal is a common way to confer a delayed solubility to cellulose ethers. The treatment includes a reaction of glyoxal with the hydroxyl groups of the cellulose ether polymer to establish hemi-acetal crosslinks which provide a retardation effect in water.
  • Glyoxal is endogenously produced during normal cellular metabolism by a multitude of enzymeindependent pathways.
  • Glyoxal is also a product of the metabolism and microsomal oxidation of other compounds, such as glycolaldehyde, ethylene glycol, and β- hydroxy-substituted N-nitrosamines
  • Paper coatings and textiles use large amounts of glyoxal as a crosslinker for starch-based formulations and as a starting material with ureas for wrinkle-resistant chemical treatments.
  • It is used as a solubilizer and cross-linking agent in polymer chemistry.
  • The acute toxicity of glyoxal ranged from low to harmful in animal experiments performed with different species, depending on the active ingredient concentration of the tested product.
  • Glyoxal, which attacks amino groups of proteins, nucleotides, and lipids, is considered an important intermediate in the formation of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs).
