Abstract

A multistep enzyme catalysis was successfully implemented to produce long-chain α,ω-dicarboxylic and ω-hydroxycarboxylic acids from renewable fatty acids and plant oils. Sebacic acid as well as ω-hydroxynonanoic acid and ω-hydroxytridec-11-enoic acid were produced from oleic and ricinoleic acid.
