Enantioselective Enzymatic Desymmetrization of Prochiral Allenic Diols

Jan Deska, Chicco Manzuna Sapu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Crude lipase from porcine pancreas acts as a highly efficient biocatalyst in the enantioselective transesterification of prochiral allendiols. Following a simple synthetic protocol, highly functionalized axially chiral allenes are obtained in high yields and excellent enantiopurity
