2007_30/2007Water-Soluble Phenanthroline Complexes of Rhodium, Iridium and Ruthenium for the Regeneration of NADH in the Enzymatic Reduction of Ketones (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 30/2007)

The cover picture shows an example of combined organometallic and enzymatic catalysis in aqueous solution. The rhodium complex [(C5Me5)Rh(phenanthroline)Cl]+ continuously regenerates NADH from NAD+ by using formate as hydrogen source, and the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase from Rhodococcus erythropolis enantioselectively reduces the ketone to the corresponding alcohol by means of the NADH formed. This work illustrates the increasing interest in enantioselective catalysis with the environmentally friendly water as solvent. Details are discussed in the article by G. Süss-Fink et al. on p. 4736 f.
