Chemoenzymatic asymmetric total synthesis of (S)-Rivastigmine using ω-transaminases

Author affiliations

Abstract

A straightforward, high-yielding, chemoenzymatic total synthesis of enantiopure (S)-Rivastigmine was developed using various ω-transaminases for the asymmetric amination of appropriate acetophenone precursors. Optimisation of the biotransformation allowed scale-up and the total synthesis of (S)-Rivastigmine.
