A novel lipase enzyme panel exhibiting superior activity and selectivity over lipase B from Candida antarctica for the kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols
A novel, commercially available lipase enzyme panel performing kinetic bioresolutions of a number of secondary alcohols is reported. The secondary alcohols that have been chosen are known from the literature to be particularly challenging substrates to resolve. Following initial screening, four co-solvents were investigated for each lead enzyme in an effort to assess their tolerance to common organic solvents.
The superiority of these novel enzymes over lipase B from Candida antarctica (CALB) has been demonstrated.
