Oxidation of nitrogen-containing heterocycles using biocatalysts

  • T. I. Davidenko
Organic Chemistry


A method for stereospecific hydroxylation of 1,2-dihydro-3H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-ones using free and immobilized cells of actinomycetes as biocatalysts was developed. The hydroxylation under the action of yeast results in the formation of racemates. Actinomyces do not hydroxylate quinazolinones, quinoxalinones, and tetrahydro-1,5-benzodiazepin-2-ones; derivatives of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-1,5-benzodiazocin-2-ones are transformed into 2-[N-(3-acetylaminopropionyl)amino]benzophenones.
