Abstract

Abstract Straight-chain and branched 2-alkanols were subjected to enzyme catalyzed transesterification in organic solvent using porcine pancreatic lipase, high enantioselectivity being generally observed. The method was applied to the synthesis of (R)-(−)-9-hydroxy-(E)-decenoic acid, a component of the queen bee mandibular gland pheromone.
