Green Chemistry (2022): “Combined chemoenzymatic strategy for sustainable continuous synthesis of the natural product hordenine”

First paper for Stefania! To improve sustainability, safety and cost-efficiency of synthetic methodologies, biocatalysis can be a helpful ally. In this work, a novel chemoenzymatic stategy ensures the rapid synthesis of hordenine, a valuable phenolic phytochemical under mild working conditions. In a two-step cascade, the immobilized tyrosine decarboxylase from Lactobacillus brevis (LbTDC) is here coupled with the […]

Chemistry- A European Journal (2021): “GPhos ligand enables the production of chiral N-arylamines in a telescoped transaminase–Buchwald-Hartwig amination cascade in the presence of excess amine donor”

A fine paper from Chris. Here he explored how we can combine transaminases and chemocatalysis, specifically looking for water-compatible Pd catalysts to synthesise arylamines. All the credits goes to him and he shares here the corresponding authorship! Chemistry- A European Journal 2021 in press (doi:10.1002/chem.202103472) Read the full paper here Related Posts
