Abstract: INTRODUCTIONThe application of biocatalytic reactions to organic synthesis has been shown to be a highly practical and efficient means of preparing chiral molecules.' The use of bakers' yeast as reducing agent for the asymmetric reduction of various carbonyl compounds offers advantages because of the high regio-and stereo-specificity of the bioconversion.' The value of organometallic compounds in modern organic synthesis has also been widely recognised, and a combination of organometallic and enzymatic chemis…
