Application Comment Organism
synthesis Baeyer-Villiger biooxidation of 4-methylcyclohexanone to 5-methyloxepane-2-one catalysed by recombinant Escherichia coli overexpressing cyclopentanone monooxygenase encapsulated in polyelectrolyte complex capsules. Viability of encapsulated cells decreases with increasing substrate concentration from 99 to 83%, while substrate conversions decrease from 100 to 6%. Storage stabilization of encapsulated cells is observed by increased substrate conversion form 68 to 96% Comamonas sp.
