Abstract

"This dissertation is divided into three sections that cover three separate but related topics. The first section deals with a preparative scale separation of 2-Hydroxy-4-(methyl thio)-butanoic acid (HMTBA), the hydroxy analog of limiting amino acid Methionine (Met.)...The second section of the dissertation deals with the synthesis of S-methyl HMTBA, an analog of S-methyl methionine (SMM); Vitamin U...The research described in the third section was directed at the synthesis of a selenium analog of HMTBA (Se-HMTBA)--Abstract, leaf iii.
