SAC ACS Presents: Flavors of Chemistry - Shared screen with speaker view
Hello! Type any questions you have whenever you have them
Regarding using terpenoids for reducing crop stress, are the same processes involved when bioengineering pest-resistant crops using organisms other than plants such as the bacteria Bacillus thuringensis?
are there any side reactions/products that show up in the corn study that can affect the results of what you are looking to produce; also is there any affects of soil/environment that the corn/maize tested is in?
Is there any terpene best for depression?
You’ve mentioned earlier that the isoprene that makes up blue haze protects plants from UV rays, so will it be possible to use them for skin protection products such as sunscreens or are companies already doing that?
Is there a way to measure terpene production from the environment around the plants possibly to be able to tell if the plants are producing more terpenes without genetic assays?
are there particular parts of plants that are more susceptible to pathogen damage as the temperature of the planet rises or does it depend on the plant?
oh okay! thanks! i’ve heard of flavonoids used as pesticides
thanks so much!
are terpenes such as kauraloxin or dolabradiene being already used as treatment for fungal infection in humans such as athlete’s foot or yeast infections?
oh okay that’s very unfortunate
related to that previous question, are grasses among them? because when mowing or cutting them, they produce a distinct grassy smell
thank you very much
