Additional recommended knowledge
The enantioselective synthesis was accomplished by J. K. Whitesell by adding Pseudomonas fluorescens lipase to racemic trans-2-phenylcyclohexyl chloroacetate. This enzyme is able to hydrolize the ester bond of the (-) enantiomer but not the (+) enantiomer. The (-)-cyclohexanol and the (+)-ester are separated by fractional crystallization and the isolated (+)-ester hydrolyzed to the (-)-cyclohexanol in a separate step.
