A Continuous Lipase-Catalyzed Acylation Process for the Large-Scale Production of Vitamin A Precursors
This optimized laboratory process was used to selectively prepare monoacylated compounds in kilogram scales over one hundred days with only a minor decrease in conversion efficiency. The process was also implemented in an up-scaled mini plant for the continuous production on a kilogram-per-day scale, reproducing the results previously obtained on smaller laboratory scales.
