Enantioselective enzymatic acetylation of racemic [4-[4α,6β (E)]]-6-[4,4-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)-1,3-butadienyl]-tetrahydro-4-hydroxy-2H-pyran-2-one

Abstract

A chiral compound [4R-[4α,6ß(E)]]-6-[4,4-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)-1,3-butadienyl]-tetrahydro-4-hydroxy-2H-pyran-2-one (R-(+)-1) was prepared by the lipase-catalysed stereoselective acetylation of racemic 1 in an organic solvent. Chiral R-(+)-1 is a hydroxymethyl glutaryl coenzyme A (HMG CoA) reductase inhibitor and a potential… (More)
