Enzymes play many roles in the advancement of biotechnology, discovery of new therapeutic agents and industrial processes. In this perspective, aminolysis reactions using lipase from Candida antarctica (CAL-B) were performed from ethyl (S)-mandelate and several aliphatic amines (45 degrees C, hexane, 3-6 h). By means of optimized conditions, amides with excellent isolated yields (60-97%) were synthetized. The biotechnological potential of CAL-B as a promising approach for the synthesis of organic compounds in a more sustainable, rapid, efficient and green chemistry perspective was verified on these results.
