Abstract

The enantioselective potential of Rhodococcus rhodochrous NCIMB 11216 nitrilase has been measured, using a range of chiral nitriles with various C-2 group substitutions. The highest selectivity was achieved during the biotransformation of (+/-) 2-methylhexanitrile where the reaction appears enantiospecific for the (+) enantiomer.
