Incubation of methyl 2-benzamidomethyl-3-oxobutanoate with cultured plant cells of Parthenocissus tricuspidata for 2 days afforded methyl (2R,3S)-2-benzamidomethyl-3-hydroxybutanoate with 100% de and 99% ee in 51% yield. The use of immobilized cells of P. tricuspidata in calcium alginate gel improved the yield of the product (95% yield) with 100% de and 99% ee. The immobilized cells of P. tricuspidata maintained the high potential for the reduction of methyl 2-benzamidomethyl-3-oxobutanoate (85% yield) after 5 times of usage.

My experience of publishing my article with Libertas Academia was excellent. They professionally handled the review process. The quality of the reviews were high. I look forward to publishing my scientific papers again with Libertas Academia.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
