Synthesis of optically active ε-dodecalactone (1) by lipase-catalyzed enantioselective acylation with racemic N-alkyl-6-hydroxydodecanamide (rac-2) as a substrate was attempted. Lipase PS-catalyzed acetylation using rac-2 progressed efficiently, and both enantiomers of 1 were obtained with over 90% optical purities.
