Functional Characterization of a Novel Marine Microbial Esterase and its Utilization in the Enantioselective Preparation of (R)-Methyl 2-Chloropropionate.

Abstract

Chiral 2-chloropropanoic acids and their ester derivatives are crucial intermediates in the synthesis of many chemicals, especially herbicides. The enzymatic synthesis of chiral 2-chloropropanoic acids and their ester derivatives by esterases was not easily achieved, because the structural difference between the two enantiomers was too small to be… (More)
