Expanding the regioselective enzymatic repertoire: oxidative mono-cleavage of dialkenes catalyzed by Trametes hirsuta.

The first report of a biocatalytic regioselective oxidative mono-cleavage of dialkenes was successfully achieved employing a cell-free enzyme preparation from Trametes hirsuta at the expense of molecular oxygen. Selected reactions were performed on a preparative scale affording high to excellent conversions and chemoselectivities.
