Rapid, selective and stable HaloTag-LbADH immobilization directly from crude cell extract for the continuous biocatalytic production of chiral alcohols and epoxides†
A strategy for biocatalyst immobilization in flow directly from the crude cell extract is described. The efficiency and the stability of the immobilized enzyme were demonstrated during the asymmetric reduction of a range of ketones. The cascade two-step chemo-enzymatic preparation of chiral epoxides was possible through the initial ketone bioreduction to an intermediate halohydrin followed by its intramolecular cyclization.
