Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-03-01

The present invention relates to a compound of formula (I) in the form of any one of its stereoisomers or a mixture thereof which is useful as perfuming ingredients.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-03-15

The present invention relates to a method of producing drimenol and/or drimenol derivatives by contacting at least one polypeptide with farnesyl diphosphate. The method may be performed in vitro or in vivo. The present invention also provides amino acid sequences of polypeptides useful in the method of the invention and nucleic acid encoding the polypeptides of the invention. The method further provides host cells or organisms genetically modified to express the polypeptides of the invention and useful to produce drimenol and /or drimenol derivatives.


Patent
Firmenich and Interquim S.A. | Date: 2017-04-12

A method of enhancing the sweetness of sweetener in a food or beverage product comprising adding Naringenin to the product in an amount of 50 ppm to 200 ppm by weight of the total weight of the product wherein the Naringenin does not block the bitter taste of the product when compared to the beverage without Naringenin. Also provided here is a food or beverage product comprising Naringenin in an amount of from 50 to 200 ppm, by weight, of the total weight of the product, and a sweetener wherein the product is not a product selected from coffee, tea, a cosmetic and a pharmaceutical.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-03-15

The present invention concerns a composition of matter comprising at least 85% w/w of (Z)-5,9-dimethyldeca-3,8-dien-5-ol and at most 15% w/w of (E)-5,9-dimethyldeca-3,8-dien-5-ol, as well as the use as perfuming ingredient of said composition of matter.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-05-03

The present invention relates to organic-inorganic hybrid core-shell microcapsules encapsulating an active ingredient such as a perfume and having a shell made from the hydrolysis and condensation reaction of particular polyalkoxysilane macro-monomeric compositions.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-05-03

More particularly, the present invention relates to a process for producing antimicrobial core-shell microcapsules with immobilized silver particles into and onto the shell. The latter can be used in home or personal care products for delivering a perfuming and malodour-countering effect. The microcapsules obtainable by such a process and the consumer products comprising these microcapsules are also objects of the invention.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-03-15

Provided is a liquid system comprising a first component and a second component the components selected from the group consisting of carbohydrates, sugar alcohols, food grade acids, food grade non-aqueous solvents and food grade salts wherein: a. the second component is different than the first component; b. the system has a melting point lower than each of the components; and c. the liquid system comprises 7% or less water. The systems are useful for protecting an active ingredient in a food system wherein the ingredient is stable at room temperature and retains its sensory properties after being diluted into an aqueous beverage for example to form a flavored aqueous beverage.


Patent
Firmenich | Date: 2017-05-10

The present invention relates to the field of organic synthesis and more specifically it concerns a process for the preparation of homoallylic alcohol derivatives as defined in formula (I) via a reaction of alkene of formula (II) with an aldehyde.

Provided herein is a method of making a concentrated solution of (S)-1-(3-(((4- amino-2,2-dioxido-1H-benzo[c][1,2,6]thiadiazin-5-yl)oxy)methyl)piperidin-1-yl)-3- methylbutan-1-one, or a salt or solvate thereof, comprising adding to an aqueous solution: a) a food grade polymer that is soluble in water at or above 0.1% by weight at 20 C to the aqueous solution; b) a sweetener; and c) (S)-1-(3-(((4-amino-2,2-dioxido-1H-benzo[c][1,2,6]thiadiazin-5- yl)oxy)methyl)piperidin-1-yl)-3-methylbutan-1-one wherein the concentration of (S)-1- (3-(((4-amino-2,2-dioxido-1H-benzo[c][1,2,6]thiadiazin-5-yl)oxy)methyl)piperidin-1- yl)-3-methylbutan-1-one, or a salt or solvate thereof, is greater than or equal to 1 ppm, by weight of the total weight of the solution, at 3 C when the pH is less than or equal to 4 or it is greater than or equal to 7 ppm, by weight of the total weight of the solution, at 25 C when the pH is less than or equal to 4. Further provided herein are solutions and beverages prepared by the methods.


Reversible covalent bond formation under thermodynamic control adds reactivity to self-assembled supramolecular systems, and is therefore an ideal tool to assess complexity of chemical and biological systems. Dynamic combinatorial/covalent chemistry (DCC) has been used to read structural information by selectively assembling receptors with the optimum molecular fit around a given template from a mixture of reversibly reacting building blocks. This technique allows access to efficient sensing devices and the generation of new biomolecules, such as small molecule receptor binders for drug discovery, but also larger biomimetic polymers and macromolecules with particular three-dimensional structural architectures. Adding a kinetic factor to a thermodynamically controlled equilibrium results in dynamic resolution and in self-sorting and self-replicating systems, all of which are of major importance in biological systems. Furthermore, the temporary modification of bioactive compounds by reversible combinatorial/covalent derivatisation allows control of their release and facilitates their transport across amphiphilic self-assembled systems such as artificial membranes or cell walls. The goal of this review is to give a conceptual overview of how the impact of DCC on supramolecular assemblies at different levels can allow us to understand, predict and modulate the complexity of biological systems. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.
