BBC News (7 May 2021) reported that India has begun distributing a new locally developed drug to treat Covid-19 symptoms.
Authorities have approved 2-DG and it is to be first used in hospitals across the capital, Delhi. According to a government statement, it “will be of immense benefit to the people suffering” from Covid-19.
2-DG or 2-Deoxy-D-glucose is a glucose molecule which has the 2-hydroxyl group replaced by hydrogen, and it is not metabolized by glycolysis. D-Glucal is the starting material for the synthesizing of 2-Deoxy-D-glucose. The separation of 2-Deoxy-D-glucose, D-Glucal and glucose was made by Shodex HILICpak VG-50 4E column which is a polymer-based amino column.

New glove makers are blooming during this demanding season, and consumers would buy whatever gloves that are supplying in the market because of limited supply. However, consumers would start to choose the best gloves when the Covid-19 pandemic was over, or when the supply was greater than demand. Besides price concern, the performance of the glove is equally important, and this is differentiating you from your competitors (NBR glove makers). Chloroprene glove could be your choice to build a competitive advantage. The quality of chloroprene gloves is better than NBR gloves in the viewpoint of softness and chemical resistance.
