Abstract

Abstract Chloroperoxidase from Caldariomyces fumago catalyses the oxidation of prochiral 1,3-cyclohexadiene using TBHP as terminal oxidant. The process occurs enantioselectively and furnishes the non-racemic trans diols 1,2- and 1,4-dihydroxycyclohexene, (−)- 3 and (+)- 4, in good ee and yield.
