Abstract:

The fungus Rhizopus arrhizus has been used for the reduction of acetophenone and its o-, m- and p-methoxy derivatives 1a–d to the corresponding (S)-(−)-alcohols. Their racemic acetates were also hydrolyzed to (R)-(+)-alcohols. The analysis of products revealed that maximum enantioselectivity (78–88 %ee) could be obtained using m-methoxy acetophenone as substrate.
