Tandem enzyme-catalysed oxidations of alkyl phenyl sulfides and alkyl benzenes: enantiocomplementary routes to chiral phenols

Author affiliations

Abstract

Dioxygenase-catalysed trioxygenation of alkyl phenyl sulfides and alkyl benzenes yields enantiopure cis-dihydrodiol sulfoxides and triols respectively; naphthalene cis-dihydrodiol dehydrogenase-catalysed aromatisation of these diastereoisomers gives enantiopure catechols of either configuration.
