  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
Asymmetric oxidation is of great value and a major interest in both research and application. This review focuses on asymmetric oxidation of organic compounds by Gluconobacter oxydans. The microbe can be used for bioproduction of several kinds of important chiral compounds, such as vitamin C, 6-(2-hydroxyethyl)amino-6-deoxy-α-l-sorbofuranose, (S)-2-methylbutanoic acid, (R)-2-hydroxy-propionic acid and 5-keto-d-gluconic acid. Characteristics of the bacteria and research progress on the… CONTINUE READING
