Our partner from Maastricht have published two papers that demonstrate the use of ROBOX technology to produce monomeric lactones that can be used to make polyesters with properties that can be tuned by enzyme selectivity Application of a thermostable Baeyer–Villigermonooxygenase for the synthesis of branched polyester precursors
The publication in Organic Process Research and Development demonstrates the usefulness on these reactions to produce industrially relevant quantities. Toward Upscaled Biocatalytic Preparation of Lactone Building Blocks for Polymer Applications
