      Kinetic resolution of rac-Stiripentol, catalysed by lipase A from Candida antarctica by esterification with vinyl butanoate was performed with an E-value of 24. This allowed isolation of (3S)-Stiripentol with an ee of 86 ...
    • One-step lipase-catalysed preparation of eslicarbazepine 

      El-Behairy, Mohammed Farrag; Sundby, Eirik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      The antiepileptic eslicarbazepine (S-licarbazepine) has been prepared in one step from its racemic form RS-licarbazepine via lipase catalysed kinetic resolution. A novel stereoselective simultaneous HPLC separations of ...
