Zygosaccharomyces rouxii catalysed the reduction of ethyl 4-chloroacetoacetate (ethyl 4-chloro-3-oxobutanoate) to the corresponding (S)-hydroxy ester (ethyl (S)-4-chloro-3-hydroxybutanoate) in high enantiomeric excess. The productivity of non-immobilised cells was compared to cells immobilised on a range of organic and inorganic supports. Cells immobilised in calcium alginate displayed a catalytic activity significantly higher than that of non-immobilised cells. A time dependent fall in the enantiomeric purity of the product was observed with the use of this matrix. This phenomenon was not seen in the reduction catalysed by non-immobilised cells.
