A novel and efficient oxidation of salicyl alcohols to the corresponding salicylaldehydes catalyzed by lipase is reported for the first time. Under the optimal reaction conditions, the method exhibited high yields (81–95%) and selectivities for salicylaldehydes. Moreover, this study expands the application of enzyme catalytic promiscuity in organic synthesis. View Full-Text
