Green Chemical Synthesis of Optically Pure 1-(4-Aminophenyl)Ethanol
A.K. Nainawat*, I.K. Sharma

The synthesis of 1-(4-Aminophenyl) ethanol was carried out using the microbial catalysts Baker’s Yeast (Saccharomyces cereviciae) as well as its immobilized form in aqueous medium. The product was isolated and purified by chromatographic technique and characterized on the basis of its spectral analysis. The enantiomeric excess was calculated with the help of polarImetric method and the product was found to high optical purity (enantiomeric excess, ee %).
