Abstract

The biotransformation of 2-methylcyclohexanone (1) using 16 fungal strains and some mushroom cultures was investigated. Fusarium sp. was one of the effective biocatalysts for oxidoreduction of 2-methylcyclohexanone (1). cis-2-Methylcyclohexanol (2a) was isomerized to trans-2-methylcyclohexanol (2b) by Fusarium sp. In addition, the corresponding lactones 3 was obtained by Baeyer-Villiger oxidation using Fusarium sp. AP-2 (46%, 94% ee).
