  • ESR1: Synthesis of enantiopure 1,2-aminoalcohols from ketones
  • ESR2: Synthesis of enantiopure 1,2-aminoalcohols from α-haloketones
  • ESR3: Synthesis of enantiopure 1,2-aminoalcohols from alkenes
  • ESR4: Flow chemistry for synthesis of enantiopure 1,3/1,4-hydroxyaminoacids from prochiral ketoacids
  • ESR5: Synthesis of enantiopure 1,3/1,4- aminoalcohols from prochiral ketoacids
  • ESR6: Novel amino donors for efficient equilibrium shift in transaminations
  • ESR7: Combining amine transaminase and ketoreductase for 1-amino-cyclohexane-4-ol synthesis
  • ESR8: Transaminase-catalyzed de-racemization cascade reactions
  • ESR9: Upscaling of ω-transaminase catalyzed cascade reactions for high-value chemicals production
  • ESR10: Widening the substrate scope of transaminases by protein engineering
