Lipase catalysed synthesis of aliphatic, terpene and aromatic esters by alcoholysis in solvent-free medium


Biosynthesis of pentyl and terpene valerates, terpene acetates, hexyl and benzyl benzoates was conducted via alcoholysis, at 55 °C, in a solvent-free medium, using lipases from Candida antarcticaand Mucor mieheias catalysts. The yield higher than 90% was achieved (Candida antarctica)after 10 h for synthesis of pentyl valerate and 3-methylbutyl valerate, 35… (More)
