Why is it important?

Thiamine (VB1) has been proved to be a powerful biocatalyst for various organic transformations. VB1 offers several unique advantages, such as economical, non-toxic, stable and water soluble. Excellent outcomes have been achieved in synthetic applications using VB1 as a catalyst.


Apart from the demonstrated abilities in organic synthesis, applications in other fields are also attractive, for example, in the fields of fluorescent sensors, nanocomposite flms, and nutrient-sensing nanodrug.
