The main goal of the project is to design a completely sustainable process for the separation of enantiomers of sec-alcohols with interest for the pharmaceutical industry. The enzymatic separation of enantiomers is a greener alternative to the highly intensive chemical processes that produce high amounts of waste. However, for the enzymatic process to be viable, it is necessary to use organic solvents. The goal of DESZyme is thus to design a solvent-free process for the enzymatic separation of enantiomers, designing a completely sustainable process.
