Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: This present study attempts to synthesize glycosides of thiamine by an enzymatic method, provides an insight into developing newer and more efficient processes.Thiamine glycosides open up new possibilities of combating the vitamin B1 deficiency prevailing in many parts of the developing and some parts of the developed regions of the world. Thus, these glycosides show more stability with better bioavailability as vitamin supplements, than the parent compound thiamine, which is considered the less stable of the water-soluble vitamins. Enzymatic synthesis of glycosides presented a better option to chemical synthesis. Currently chemical preparation of glycosides has not met EC food regulations, and therefore chemical preparation of glycosides is not applicable in food industry. Thus, enzyme-catalyzed reactions make an excellent alternative.
