Access to biopolymers: Starting from linoleic acid, a multi-enzymatic one-pot process is successfully applied to produce 9-oxononanoic acid in high yield. The enzymatic cascade reaction consists of a lipoxygenase, which introduces a hydroperoxy group into the polyunsaturated fatty acids, and a hydroperoxide lyase, which performs the cleavage reaction on the nascent hydroperoxy moiety.
