Description: omega-Chloroacetophenone is a riot control agent. Chiral 1-(o-chlorophenyl)-ethanols are key intermediates in the synthesis of chemotherapeutic substances. Enantioselective reduction of o-chloroacetophenone is a preferred method of production but well investigated chemo- and biocatalysts for this transformation are currently lacking.
