This study was designed to determine whether whole cells or crude enzyme extracts are more effective for preparative-scale ketone reductions by dehydrogenases as well as learning which cofactor regeneration scheme is most effective. Based on results from three representative ketone substrates (an α-fluoro-β-keto ester, a bis-trifluoromethylated acetophenone, and a symmetrical β-diketone), our results demonstrate that several nicotinamide cofactor regeneration strategies can be applied to preparative-scale dehydrogenase-catalyzed reactions successfully.
