”Baeyer-Villigerases” Project

LCAB project
LCAB group members



Collaboration: Veronique Alphand (Biosciences group; iSm2; Cezanne University)

These flavin monooxygenases which catalyze the Baeyer-Villiger oxidation reactions, represent an efficient procedure for the production of optically active lactones. In fact, these enzymes are capable of converting not only aliphatic ketones to esters, but in particular, the conversion of cyclic ketones into chiral lactones. These chiral synthons have important applications in asymetric chemistry.
