Monoamine Oxidase–ω-Transaminase Cascade for the Deracemisation and Dealkylation of Amines



Herein we report a one-pot protocol for the deracemisation of chiral benzylic amines employing a novel monoamine oxidase–ω-transaminase cascade, allowing access to enantiopure compounds in >99 % ee. We also demonstrate that the same enzymatic cascade can be employed for the dealkylation of secondary amines with >99 % conversion.
