 ABSTRACT:

Biocatalysis is an important tool to implement new, efficient, selective, cost effective and greener technologies, defining a new strategy in the industry of the future. For industrial applications, the stability and reusability of the biocatalysts are important requirements which can be achieved by immobilization, improving also their activity and selectivity. Optimization of the biocatalytic function, as well as the biocatalytic process design became essential topics in industrial biotechnology.

In the forthcoming period, a strong impact of industrial biotechnology can be expected in the fine chemicals sector. As lipases demonstrated the highest application capability among industrial enzymes, the efforts to improve their operational stability and catalytic efficiency led to a remarkable development of the immobilization methods. Certainly, the manufacturing of high value optically active compounds represents the main large-scale process where biocatalysis with lipases will replace the presently employed procedures. Enzymatic kinetic resolution (EKR) of the racemic mixtures represents the most efficient way to obtain high optical purity compounds. However, in large scale EKR an important challenge remains the isolation and purification of the products, which generally involves expensive and laborious physical procedures, decreasing the global process yields and the optical purities of the isolated compounds.

To the best of our knowledge the use of click chemistry involving large carriers, as a tool for easy EKR product separation is still unknown and it could be a practical solution for the efficient large scale isolation and purification of the enzymatic resolution products. Performing the click reaction between a preactivated polymer and one of the appropriate functionalized reaction products in the enzyme free reaction mixture obtained by EKR, would circumvent the tedious isolation and purification procedures.

The project main objective is to develop an innovative kit for efficient and cost-effective sequential continuous flow large-scale (multigram) preparation of optically pure chiral building blocks useful for synthesis of pharmaceutical compounds and agricultural chemicals, based on the tailor-made immobilized lipases mediated kinetic resolution of various racemic substrates and a subsequent click chemistry like efficient downstreaming of the reaction mixture. Such an innovative approach of coupling kinetic resolution of a broad range of racemic substrates with click chemistry type downstreaming was not yet carried out. One of the main technical barriers of large-scale utilization of biocatalysts is the lack of generic catalysts and procedures, as usually an immobilized biocatalyst is designed only for a certain application. Implementation of this project will allow surmounting this bottleneck by developing a solid-phase catalytic block with high activity and selectivity, needing only fine tuning of the process parameters, together with a downstreaming procedure and click chemistry carrier that will allow the efficient separation of the optically active product. The immobilized biocatalysts can be used in continuous flow bioreactors and under harsher reaction conditions.


The use of immobilized biocatalysts-click chemistry doawnstream process tandem will permit to design easily scaled-up continuous flow procedures for industrial manufacturing of the target compounds: (hetero)aril-ethanols, amines, hydroxy- and amino acids, underlining the economic relevance of the project proposal. Our products will significantly decrease the production costs of newly developed enantiopure building blocks due to the achievable high enantiomer selectivity (E) values and yields.

Performing the click reaction between a preactivated polymer and one of the properly functionalized reaction product (BR) in the enzyme free reaction mixture obtained by EKR, would circumvent the tedious isolation and purification procedures generally involving the use of preparative flash-chromatography.
