Abstract:
A novel enzyme was isolated from specific variety of Daucus carota root catalyzed asymmetric cross aldol reaction of aromatic aldehydes with acetone to afford cross aldol products with excellent yield (up to 95%) and enantioselectivity (up to 99%). A plausible mechanism of the reaction has also been proposed.
