  • Patent number: 5329014
    Abstract: Optically active tryptophan of high purity can be obtained in high yields from a tryptophan fermentation broth, using crystallization of optically active tryptophan hydrochloride in combination with concurrent neutralization crystallization. According to the present invention, optically active tryptophan from a tryptophan containing fermentation broth, is carried out by (a) removing cells from the fermentation broth, adding hydrochloric acid, or a mixture of hydrochloric acid and an inorganic salt which contains chloride ions, to the cell-free broth to effect crystallization, (b) separating optically active tryptophan hydrochloride, (c) dissolving the optically active tryptophan hydrochloride, and (d) subjecting the resulting solution and an alkali solution to concurrent neutralization crystallization, maintaining a pH of the crystallization solution in the range of from 3 to 8.

  • Patent number: 4560763
    Abstract: A base precursor for heat-developable photosensitive material is disclosed. The precursor is comprised of a compound represented by general formula (I) or (II):(R--C.tbd.C--CO.sub.2 H).sub.x.B (I)R--C.tbd.C--CO.sub.2 H).sub.2.B.sub.y (II)The substituents within the general formulae are defined within the specification. The use of this novel base precursor makes it possible to obtain a material which is very stable at normal temperatures and which smoothly decomposes under heating at 80.degree. C. or higher in order to release a basic constituent.

  • Patent number: 4436910
    Abstract: Aqueous solutions of sodium salts of .alpha.-aminocarboxylic acids practically free of foreign salts are produced by saponifying the corresponding hydantoin at a temperature between 110.degree. C. and 180.degree. C. with a mixture, in each case based on the hydantoin, of 1 equivalent of sodium hydroxide and 2 equivalents of calcium oxide or hydroxide, separating off the precipitated calcium carbonate after the end of the saponification and concentrating the aqueous sodium salt solution remaining to drive off the ammonia contained therein.
