Abstract

Abstract Asymmetric hydrolysis, ester interchange and ester formation were carried out for menthol resolution with Candida cylindracea lipase. The reactions were realized under emulsified conditions with water soluble enzyme and in organic medium with an insoluble enzyme preparation. In the latter case, an enhancement of the enantioselectivity uas observed. The potentialities of ester interchange and ester formation for preparative alcohol resolutions are discussed.
