Pattern 3819        All patterns
dialiphatic Ether -> Alcohol + Aldehyde
aromatic-aliphatic Ether -> Phenol derivative + Aldehyde


Aerobic Likelihood:              Neutral

EAWAG-BBD Reaction(s):
4-Chlorophenoxyacetate -----> Glyoxylate + 4-Chlorophenol (reacID# r0281)
2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid -----> Glyoxylate + 2,4-Dichlorophenol (reacID# r0274)
Diglycolate -----> Glycolate + Glyoxylate (reacID# r1534)
Dimethyl ether -----> Methanol + Formaldehyde (reacID# r0082)
4-Methoxybenzoate -----> 4-Hydroxybenzoate + Formaldehyde (reacID# r0154)
Methyl tert-butyl ether -----> tert-Butyl alcohol (reacID# r1023)
3-O-Methylgallate -----> Gallate (reacID# r1672)
Syringate -----> 3-O-Methylgallate (reacID# r1632)
2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid -----> Glyoxylate + 2,4,5-Trichlorophenol (reacID# r0359)
Vanillate -----> 3,4-Dihydroxybenzoate + Formaldehyde (reacID# r0146)
Vanillate -----> 3,4-Dihydroxybenzoate (reacID# r0758)

Comments:
Does NOT handle ethers when the vincinal carbons are halogenated. When given an aromatic-aliphatic ether, Ar-O-R1, it will produce ArOH + R1CHO. When given a dialiphatic ether, R1-O-R2, it will produce both R1-OH + R2CHO, and R2-OH + R1-CHO. This rule will only act on ring ethers containing tertiary or quartiary carbon atoms neighboring the oxygen. It will not act on a diaromatic ether, Ar1-O-Ar2. Rule is blocked from acting on CoA.

Similarities:
bt0158: Enol ether --> Keto + Alcohol
bt0295: Ether with vicinal halogenated carbon [H1] --> Ester
