P450 enzymes have attracted the attention of chemists for decades because of their impressive ability to catalyze the hydroxylation of inactivated CH bonds. However, their use for synthesis in aqueous systems is limited. We report here a survey of the activity of purified human CYP3A4 in the presence of organic solvents or ionic liquids. We show that CYP3A4 tolerates only small amounts (<15 %) of water‐miscible organic cosolvents or ionic liquids before its activity toward testosterone drops… Expand
