- ... The asymmetric esterification of the racemic primary alcohol lavandulol was achieved using lipase B from Candida antarctica and acetic acid as acyl donor in 80% yield. The enantioselectivity of the process was characterised, and a preparative resolution of 25 mm racemic lavandulol, stopped at approx. 55% conversion, yielded (S)-lavandulol in 42% yield and 52% e.e. and (R)-lavandulyl acetate in 51% ...
