Exposure to benzene, which has been linked to acute myeloid leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, is a continuing problem for the chemical industry
Considerable research activity is currently being focused on elaboration of syntheses of phloroglucinol and resorcinol from glucose.
benzene-free synthetic routes typically entail microbial synthesis of an intermediate followed by chemical conversion of this intermediate into the desired product.
