ITQ researchers have published a “hot paper” in the journal Green Chemistry

ITQ researchers, Jose Miguel Carceller, Maria Mifsud, Maria J. Climent, Sara Iborra and Avelino Corma have published a “hot paper” in the Green Chemistry journal “Production of chiral alcohols from racemic mixtures by heterogeneous chemoenzymatic catalysis integrated in fixed bed continuous operation”.  The paper describes a chemoenzymatic process for obtaining chiral alcohols from racemic mixtures and has been selected as relevant for the strategy used that includes the regeneration of the enzyme cofactor, and proceeds with an atomic economy of 100%
