M. koreensis-mediated biocatalysis for the stereoinversion of (S)-3-aryloxy-1,2-propanediol proved the excellent redox potential of this organism towards a diverse array of substrates. It is noted that microbes gave a higher chemical yield with excellent stereoinversion after 3 days of incubation. An overall view of the deracemization process of 3-aryloxy-1,2-propanediol is presented here. The supplementary information supported the chiral HPLC resolution and accordingly utilized for calculating the enantiomeric yield.
