Enzymatic resolution of (±)-1-acetoxy-2,9,10-trimethoxyaporphine (O-acetylthaliporphine)(3), (±)-2-acetoxy-1,9,10-trimethoxyaporphine (O-acetylpredicentrine)(4), and (±)-3-acetoxy-2,9,10-trimethoxyaporphines (5) by use of immobilized lipase in organic solvent gave resolved 3-5 and the corresponding hydroxyaporphines (9-11) in fair to good chemical and optical yields. Analogous reaction of (±)-1-acetoxy-2,10,11-trimethoxyhomoaporphine (6) did not take place, whereas that of (±)-2-acetoxy-1,10,11-trimethoxy- and (±)-3-acetoxy-2,10,11-trimethoxyhomoaporphines (7 and 8) produced optical active 7, 8 and hydroxyhomoaporphines (13, 14).
