Enantiopure β-nitroalcohols are versatile intermediates used in the synthesis of important pharmaceuticals and chiral synthons. In this article, immobilized Arabidopsis thaliana HNL (AtHNL)-catalyzed preparation of (S)-β-nitroalcohols from their racemic mixtures via retro-Henry reaction was studied. AtHNL used in biocatalysis was
