Article
Full-text available
In the field of green chemistry, light – an attractive natural agent – has received particular attention for driving biocatalytic reactions. Moreover, the implementation of light to drive (chemo)enzymatic cascade reactions opens up a golden window of opportunities. However, limitations shown in many current examples were mostly associated with inco...

Full-text available
In this study, we coupled a well‐established whole‐cell system based on E. coli via light‐harvesting complexes to Rieske oxygenase (RO)‐catalyzed hydroxylations in vivo . Although these enzymes represent very promising biocatalysts, their practical applicability is hampered by their dependency on NAD(P)H as well as their multi‐component nature and...
Article
A lipase gene was identified and isolated from a fosmid metagenomics library constructed from forest topsoil samples. Error prone PCR and saturation mutagenesis were used to generate seven lipase variants: S69 P/R194Q, S69 G, S69 P, S69E, S69 P/T99S/N190S/R194Q, R194S, and R194A; by testing five different fatty acids of p-nitrophenyl (p-NP) ester,...
Chapter
The stereo- and regioselective oxidative functionalization of olefins is amongst the most challenging reactions in organic syntheses. In particular, the catalytic asymmetric dihydroxylation of alkenes has attracted considerable attention due to the facile further transformation of the chiral diol products into valuable derivatives, making them impo...
Article
Light has received increased attention for various chemical reactions but also in combination with biocatalytic reactions. Because currently only a few enzymatic reactions are known, which per se require light, most transformations involving light and a biocatalyst exploit light either for providing the cosubstrate or cofactor in an appropriate red...
Article
The Cover Feature illustrates how dual catalysis between a photocatalyst and an enzyme accomplishes the synthesis of chiral γ‐lactones from simple starting materials. In their Research Article, D. Ravelli, S. Schmidt and co‐workers explored a decatungstate photocatalyst that, upon near‐UV light irradiation, promotes the radical hydroacylation of α,...
Article
The implementation of light‐driven catalytic processes in biocatalysis opens a golden window of opportunities. We hereby report the merging of photocatalytic C‐C bond formation with enzymatic asymmetric reduction for the direct conversion of simple aldehydes and acrylates or unsaturated carboxylic acids into chiral γ‐lactones. Tetrabutylammonium de...
