Lygos and Sirrus announce synthesis of methylene malonates using bio-derived feedstock

Lygos, Inc., and Sirrus, Inc., jointly announced that Sirrus has successfully synthesized its Chemilian 1,1 di-substituted alkenes using Lygos’ bio-derived diethyl malonate (bio-DEM). This marks the first known synthesis and purification of this breakthrough class of monomers using bio-based malonate esters at laboratory scale.

The Sirrus class of monomers presents a broad range of unique properties for various industries that the company believes may drive large volume demand for bio-derived malonate esters.

Lygos engineers yeast to ferment sugar into high-value industrial chemicals. Lygos applies biochemistry to develop fine chemical manufacturing processes cost-advantaged over petrochemical technologies.

Lygos’ first family of products are malonic acid and its derivative esters dimethyl malonate and diethyl malonate.

I am really happy to see that people are working for the betterment of nature and for the people.I am happy that they are now making cars which are not harmful to nature. Go to to get the best assignments for your homework. The invention of car revolutionized the world but I think it damaged the world as well because it caused pollution which is very bad for nature and for the people.
