Abstract

Both enantiomers of the diastereomeric cognac lactones have been synthesised using enzyme assisted reactions in the enantiodifferentiating step. This was accomplished by baker's yeast reduction of their precursors 3-methyl-4-oxononanoic acid and ester and by enzymatic hydrolysis of the latter. An inhibition of hydrolases by the products was observed. Trans-(+)-, trans-(-)-, cis-(+)- and cis-(-)-cognac lactones having 99, 88, 88 and 99% e.e., respectively, were thus obtained. Their CD spectra have also been studied.
