Zaira Maugeri and Dr. Pablo Domínguez de María Whole-Cell Biocatalysis in Deep-Eutectic-Solvents/Aqueous Mixtures ChemCatChem 6
DESpicably good: Whole-cell biocatalysis with the use of baker's yeast is demonstrated in different mixtures of water with deep eutectic solvents (DESs). Enantioselective ketone reduction is observed for long reaction times (>200 h), which suggests that the whole cells remain stable in these neoteric solvents. By changing the proportion of the DES added, a complete inversion of enantioselectivity is observed.
