3_02/2011Cover Picture: Combination of C=C Bond Formation by Wittig Reaction and Enzymatic C=C Bond Reduction in a One-Pot Process in Water (ChemCatChem 2/2011)

The cover picture shows the combination of a “classic” chemical reaction with an enzymatic C=C reduction towards a one-pot process for saturated ketones in water, as reported in the Communication by Hummel, Gröger et al. on p. 293 ff. Furthermore, this image symbolizes how the disciplines of chemocatalysis and biocatalysis are bridged by the field of chemoenzymatic synthesis, the topic of the present “Cluster Issue,” with contributions from numerous groups. Therein, current progresses in this exciting field are presented, which underline the impressive potential of chemoenzymatic synthesis in modern organic chemistry.
