Enzymatic monoesterification of symmetric diols: restriction of molecular conformations influences selectivity.


We have experimentally demonstrated that by 'locking' the molecular conformation through the introduction of a double or triple bond in the center of a symmetric diol, enzymatic monoesterification can be achieved selectively. The enzyme Candida antarctica lipase B, generally used for the transesterification of diols, can be effectively used for the… (More)
