Abstract

The enantioselectivity for the lipase-catalyzed esterifications in an organic solvent was found to be enhanced by addition of (+)- or (-)-camphor as a chiral additive. A more remarkable enhancement of its enantioselectivity was brought about by the cooperative effects of two kinds of additives: (-)-camphor and water.
