Example text

Ref. 451 A corresponding deracemization procedure employs an N-phthaloyl-DL-amino acid and (R)-pantolactone (Ref. 105). The fortuitous preferential crystallization of one enantiomer (initiation of crystallization through seeding with the required enantiomer of the particular target amino acid, or even with an enantiomer of a structurally-related compound) lends itself to large-scale operation. 455 The use of enzymes continues to occupy a prominent place in any list of current resolution options, and is illustrated in the current literature for catalysis of enantioselective hydrolysis: ethyl N-acetyl DL-3-aminobutyrate using lipase from Candida antartica,456 rice bran lipase for a variety of N-acetyl DL-amino acid esters,457 Aspergillus niger lipase for N-protected amino acid esters,458 longchain alkyl esters of non-protein amino acids using a microbial protease,459 also used for syntheses of a Nikkomycin B constituent (Ref.
