Abstract: Enantiopure chiral amidic derivatives of sinapic acid were oxidised withhydrogen peroxide using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) as the catalyst to give thearyltetraline dilignol thomasidioic acid. Trans-diastereoselectivity and enantioselectivity inthe formation of thomasidioic acid was observed. Computational methods show that theenantioselectivity is controlled by the β-β oxidative coupling step, while thediastereoselectivity is controlled by the stability of the reactive conformation of theintermediate quinomethide.
