Lipase-catalyzed irreversible transesterification of 1-(2-furyl)ethanol using isopropenyl acetate.


Asymmetric acetylation of racemic 1-(2-furyl)ethanol with the innocuous acyl donor isopropenyl acetate catalyzed by lipases in organic media afforded the chiral alcohol and acetate in high enantiomeric excess (up to 99%). The effect of molecular sieves as well as organic solvents on the kinetic resolution were studied. An effective separation of the… (More)
