Novel Glucosylimidazolium Ionic-Liquid-Supported Novozym 435 Catalysts – A Proof of Concept for an Acrylation Reaction

ChemistryOpen. 2022 Aug 3:e202200135. doi: 10.1002/open.202200135. Online ahead of print.


A series of novel ionic liquids based on glucose was synthesized in high yields in simple two or three-step reaction procedures. These carbohydrate-based ionic liquids were studied and compared to commercially available imidazolium-based ionic liquids as supports for Novozym 435 in the acrylation of n-butanol. A direct correlation between the availability of hydroxy groups and the overall activity as well as an enhanced recyclability of the biocatalyst has been found for the glucose-based ionic liquids.
