AbstractThe influence of buffer type, co-solvent type, and acyl chain length was investigated for the enantioselective hydrolysis of racemic 4-arylbut-3-en-2-yl esters using Lecitase™ Ultra (LU). Immobilized preparations of the Lecitase™ Ultra enzyme had significantly higher activity and enantioselectivity than the free enzyme, particularly for 4-phenylbut-3-en-2-yl butyrate as the substrate. Moreover, the kinetic resolution with the immobilized enzyme was achieved in a much shorter time (24–48 h). Lecitase™ Ultra, immobilized on cyanogen bromide-activated agarose, was particularly effective, producing, after 24 h of reaction time in phosphate buffer (pH 7.2) with acetone as co-solvent, both (R)-alcohols and unreacted (S)-esters with good to excellent enantiomeric excesses (ee 90–99%). These conditions and enzyme were also suitable for the kinetic separation of racemic (E)-4-phenylbut-3-en-2-yl butyrate analogs containing methyl substituents on the benzene ring (4b,4c), but they did not show any enantioselectivity toward (E)-4-(4’-methoxyphenyl)but-3-en-2-yl butyrate (4d).
