The enzymatic, selective hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde to cinnamyl alcohol is reported here. Yeast alcohol dehydrogenase was used in a substrate-coupled process with cofactor recycling. Both 100% selectivity and aldehyde conversion were achieved within 3 h. The reaction took place under very mild conditions, in the absence of toxic organic solvent. The overall process proved inexpensive and deserves further optimization studies in order to evaluate industrial applications. 
Selective synthesis of cinnamyl alcohol by cyanobacterial photobiocatalysts

Bio-derived Production of Cinnamyl Alcohol via a Three Step Biocatalytic Cascade and Metabolic Engineering.
This study demonstrates the potential to establish green routes to the synthesis of cinnamyl alcohol from a waste stream such as glycerol derived, for example, from lipase treated biodiesel, and extends this biocatalytic cascade by its inclusion in a L-phenylalanine overproducing strain of Escherichia coli.

Immobilization of Thermoanaerobium brockii alcohol dehydrogenase on SBA-15
In the reduction reaction of sulcatone to sulcatol carried out in biphasic systems, the yield obtained with SBA-15-adsorbed TBADH was up to 5.5-fold higher than that with the free enzyme, which suggests a higher stability of the immobilized enzyme toward the organic solvent. Expand
