Examples

  • Gamma-tocopherol traps mutagenic electrophiles such as NOX and complements alpha-tocopherol: physiological implications.

    Craig Cooper: The Real Facts About Vitamin E and Prostate Cancer

  • In addition to activating the good guys, mild electrophiles like the nitroalkenes, the curcuminoids found in turmeric, active constituents of watercress and cinnamon and the spin traps, deactivate the bad guys, just as we observed with the catechins found in blueberries, cocoa, and tea.

  • But mild electrophiles can actually work to our benefit, as they activate NRF2 while inhibiting the activation of the pro-inflammatory transcription factor NFκB.

    Forever Young

  • These mild electrophiles, also known as Michael acceptor pharmacophores, and other similarly acting pharma-cophores are of tremendous importance in the dual battlefields of aging and disease.

    Forever Young

  • These mild electrophiles are the active constituents found in watercress and the spices cinnamon and turmeric, and unique substances known as spin traps and nitroalkenes.

    Forever Young

  • Some mild oxidizing agents or electrophiles can have beneficial effects on cellular health.

    Forever Young

  • This activation produces what is now known as superelectrophiles, that is, electrophiles of doubly electron-deficient (dipositive) nature whose reactivity significantly exceeds that of their parents.

    George A. Olah - Autobiography

  • In the last decade I asked myself whether a similar but more general approach could be used to produce in general electrophiles (electro deficient reagents) of greatly enhanced electron reactivity.

    George A. Olah - Autobiography

  • Protosolvolytic activation of electrophiles should always be considered in this context.

    George A. Olah - Autobiography

  • This resulted in the development of the concept of superelectrophilic activation and the study of superelectrophiles, i.e. electrophiles of greatly enhanced reactivity compared with previously known related electrophilic reagents and systems.
