Dr. Melissa Guazzaroni, Dr. Marina Pasqualini, Dr. Giorgia Botta and Prof. Raffaele Saladino A Novel Synthesis of Bioactive Catechols by Layer-by-Layer Immobilized Tyrosinase in an Organic Solvent Medium ChemCatChem 4
Tyrosinase layers it down: Catechols are biologically active, synthetically challenging derivatives. Heterogeneous tyrosinase catalysts obtained through the layer-by-layer technique were applied to the conversion of phenols into the corresponding catechols. The reactions proceeded in high yield and selectivity, avoiding the formation of quinones by the use of mixed solvents. The biocatalysts retained activity over several runs.
