Immobilized enzymes in organic solvents are used in the enantioselective synthesis of cyanohydrins (3, R1 = alkyl, aryl, heteroaryl; R2 = H, alkyl) from carbonyl compounds (1) and hydrogen cyanide (2). Enzymatic kinetic resolution of rac-3 is also conducted in organic media. Chiral cyanohydrins can thus be prepared in high optical purities and serve as valuable synthetic building blocks owing to the wide range of subsequent conversions.
