Asymmetric reduction of ketones with recombinant E. coli whole cells in neat substrates.


PMID 22005469

Abstract

The asymmetric reduction of ketones is performed by using lyophilized whole cells in neat substrates with defined water activity (a(w)). Ketones and alcohols prone to be unstable in aqueous media can now be converted via biocatalysis.
