Pseudozyma (Candida) antarctica lipase B (CAL-B, Novozym 435®) is one of the most widely used and outstanding biocatalysts. However, CAL-B-catalyzed transesterification of ortho-substituted 1-phenylethanol analogs suffers low conversion. In this research, the reactions were accelerated by using CO2-expanded liquids, liquids expanded by dissolving pressurized CO2, such as CO2-expanded hexane or CO2-expanded MeTHF.
