Abstract

Abstract An efficient synthesis of β-aryl-β-amino acid enantiomers has been developed via the lipase-catalysed enantioselective hydrolysis of the corresponding racemic ethyl esters in an organic solvent. High enantioselectivities ( E >100) were observed when the lipase PS-catalysed reactions were performed with H 2O (0.5 equiv) in diisopropyl ether at 45 °C. The products could be easily separated and were obtained in good yields of ⩾40%.
