Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Using a chemoenzymatic synthetic strategy, (S)-imperanene and its (R)-enantiomer has been synthesized from vanillin in nine steps. The key step in the synthesis involves the use of Pseudomonas cepacia lipase (PS-30) to induce asymmetrization of the intermediary prochiral 1,3-diol in >97% ee.
