AbstractBiocatalysis is gaining increasing attention in the academic and industrial sector due to the possibility of developing highly stereoselective transformations in a sustainable manner. The creation of stereogenic centres in organic synthesis is not trivial and multiple approaches have been disclosed based on organometallic and organocatalytic methods with the use of day by day more complex catalysts to induce asymmetry in selected transformations. The intrinsic chirality of enzymes makes ...

A hybrid organo- and biocatalytic system for the asymmetric conversion of racemic alcohols into amines was developed. Combining an organocatalyst, AZADO, an oxidant, NaOCl, and an enzyme, ω-transaminase, we implemented a one-pot oxidation–transamination sequential process in aqueous medium. The method showed broad substrate scope and was successfully applied to conventional secondary alcohols and sterically hindered β-substituted cycloalkanols, where a highly stereoselective dynamic asymmetric b...

Enantiomerically pure 1-(6-methoxynaphth-2-yl) and 1-(6-(dimethylamino)naphth-2-yl) carbinols are fluorogenic substrates for aldo/keto reductase (KRED) enzymes, which allow the highly sensitive and reliable determination of activity and kinetic constants of known and unknown enzymes, as well as an immediate enantioselectivity typing. Because of its simplicity in microtiter plate format, the assay qualifies for the discovery of novel KREDs of yet unknown specificity among this vast enzyme superfa...

Several chemoenzymatic routes have been evaluated for the production of the heart-rate reducing agent ivabradine. Lipases and ω-transaminases have been identified as useful biocatalysts for the preparation of key enantiopure precursors. The lipase-catalysed kinetic resolution by alkoxycarbonylation of a racemic primary amine and subsequent chemical reduction of the resulting carbamate provided an N-methylated (S)-amine, one step away from ivabradine. Alternatively, the dynamic kinetic resolution...

A one-pot/two-step bienzymatic asymmetric amination of secondary alcohols is disclosed. The approach is based on a sequential strategy involving the use of a laccase/TEMPO catalytic system for the oxidation of alcohols into ketone intermediates, and their following transformation into optically enriched amines by using transaminases. Individual optimizations of the oxidation and biotransamination reactions have been carried out, studying later their applicability in a concurrent process. Therefo...

Ursodeoxycholic acid, a secondary bile acid, is used as a drug for the treatment of various liver diseases, the optimal dose comprises the range of 8–10 mg/kg/day. For industrial syntheses, the structural complexity of this bile acid requires the use of an appropriate starting material as well as the application of regio- and enantio-selective enzymes for its derivatization. Most strategies for the synthesis start from cholic acid or chenodeoxycholic acid. The latter requires the conversion of t...

Cyclometalated iridium complexes are found to be versatile catalysts for the direct reductive amination (DRA) of carbonyls to give primary amines under transfer-hydrogenation conditions with ammonium formate as both the nitrogen and hydrogen source. These complexes are easy to synthesise and their ligands can be easily tuned. The activity and chemoselectivity of the catalyst towards primary amines is excellent, with a substrate to catalyst ratio (S/C) of 1000 being feasible. Both aromatic and al...

The N-alkylation of amines constitutes one of the most widely applied transformations in synthetic chemistry, but established methods often utilise non-renewable feedstocks and must be adapted for a post fossil fuel world. This review is focused on emerging methodologies in which redox surrogate reagents to carbonyl compounds are used which may be more readily sourced from nature. The review considers both chemocatalytic and biocatalytic approaches and considers challenges such as application an...

Abstract A series of enantioenriched (hetero)aromatic secondary allylic alcohols has been synthesized through deracemization of the corresponding racemic mixtures combining a non-selective chemoenzymatic oxidation (laccase from Trametes versicolor and oxy-radical TEMPO) and a stereoselective biocatalyzed reduction (lyophilized cells of E. coli overexpressing an alcohol dehydrogenase, ADH). Both steps were performed in aqueous medium under very mild reaction conditions. After optimization, a sequ...

A tandem protocol to access tertiary alcohols has been developed which combines the organocatalytic oxidation of secondary alcohols to ketones followed by their chemoselective addition by several RLi reagents. Reactions take place at room temperature, under air and in aqueous solutions, a trio of conditions that are typically forbidden in polar organometallic chemistry.
