what is glyceryl Isoprene acetal????Please help~
« on: July 10, 2008, 02:14:32 PM »
The chemical is found in the eye tear film
It's from this papaer:
http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/109751781/abstract
I've looked everywhere to see what glyceryl Isoprene acetal is but yet no clue....
I know isoprene=2-methylbuta-1,3-diene, and acetal is a molecule with two single bonded oxygens attached to the same carbon atom, and glyceryl probably contains glycerol, but don't know how to put them together

I didn't see anything that caught my eye in the paper, but I would expect the isoprene and the acetal group to be attached to the -OH groups in the glycerol.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
