Biocatalysis: Overcoming Equilibrium Issues with Carbonyl Reductase Enzymes
We report herein the screening, optimisation and scale up to 100 g of a bioreduction process that employs an in situ product removal (ISPR) technique to overcome the inherent equilibrium problem associated with the coupled-substrate approach to biocatalytic carbonyl reduction. This technique allowed the valuable chiral alcohol, (S)-2-bromo-2-cyclohexen-1-ol, to be isolated in 88% yield and 99.8% ee without the need for further purification, validating the general applicability of this experimental setup.View Resource
