060061: Molecular Design of Thermostable Alcohol Dehydroganase for Synthesis for Chiral Aromatic Alcohols

Chiral aromatic alcohols are important building blocks for a variety of high-value chemicals, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and various other chiral compounds. Generally only one enantiomer is biologically active for the intended purpose of the drug; the other enantiomer can be toxic. To achieve enantiomeric purity using current methods...
