CAN 130:153545 AN 1998:715806 CAPLUS (Copyright (C) 2009 ACS on SciFinder (R)) Abstract Redn. of the piperidine keto esters, e.g., I, using fermenting bakers' yeast provides high yields of the corresponding hydroxy esters, e.g., II, exclusively as the cis-diastereoisomers and with good levels (?80%) of enantiomeric enrichment. The relative stereochemistries of the products were deduced from NMR data while the abs. configurations were detd. by degrdn. to known piperidinemethanol derivs. or, in the case of hydroxy ester III, by homologation to (R)-3-quinuclidinol IV.
