Abstract

In an extension of our interest in the use of lipases and dehydrogenases2 in organic solvents, we present here our results in the asymmetric reduction of several racemic 2-arylpropanals to their corresponding (2S)-2-aryl-1-propanol derivatives by means of alcohol dehydrogenases in an aqueous–organic medium, involving an efficient biocatalysed DKR process.3 The value of this finding resides in the application of these chiral intermediates to the synthesis of optically active pharmaceutical products of the Profen class (Ibuprofen, Ketoprofen, etc) and fragrances.
