General description

(R)-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanol {(R)-MOPE, 4-Methoxyphenethyl alcohol, 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanol } is formed during the biocatalytic anti-Prelog enantioselective reduction of 4-methoxyacetophenone (MOAP) using immobilized Trigonopsis variabilis AS2.

Application

4-Methoxyphenethyl alcohol was used in the preparation of 4-(2-iodoethyl)phenol, by refluxing it with 47% hydriodic acid. It may be used in the preparation of (2R*,4R*)-1-n-butyl-2-methyl-4-(2-oxopyrrolidin-1-yl)-6-methoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline and (2R*,4S*)-1-n-butyl-2-methyl-4-(2-oxopyrrolidin-1-yl)-6-methoxy-1,2,3,4- tetrahydroquinoline.
4-Methoxyphenethyl alcohol was used as an internal standard in the fluorous biphasic catalysis reaction.

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) is an ester of a hydroxycinnamic acid (phenylpropanoid) and a phenylethanoid (2-phenylethanol; 2-PE), which has long been used in traditional medicine. Here, we synthesized 54 hydroxycinnamic acid-phenylethanoid esters by feeding 64 combinations of hydroxycinnamic acids...
