Abstract

Metabolism of meta-bromobenzoic acid by the blocked mutant Ralstonia eutrophus B9 affords an enantiopure dearomatised halodiene-diol which we demonstrate is a versatile chiron for organic synthesis. The presence of the halogen leads to reactivity that is distinct to that observed for the non-halogenated analogue and also serves as a synthetic handle for further functionalisation.
