Process Development for Downstream Processing of ε-caprolactone in a Biocatalytic Reaction

INTRODUCTION Production processes of economically important oxyfunctionalized synthesis building blocks are mostly based on “classical chemical” methods. Up to now ε- caprolactone is synthesized via oxidation of cyclohexane to cyclohexanol/ cyclohexanone. The KA-oil is oxidized with peroxyacetic acid in an
