Alpha-chymotrypsin suspended in organic solvents with low water content catalysed hydrolytic reactions in the presence of ammonium hydrogen carbonate. Molecular modelling studies were carried out and structure-reactivity relationships were established by studying the hydrolysis of amino acid derivatives and analogues. The enzyme was found to be stereoselective with respect to the hydrolysis of L-amino acid derivatives, but no stereoselectivity was observed when alpha-hydroxy esters were used as substrates. A general procedure for the resolution of aromatic amino acid esters is given. The results are interpreted in terms of molecular modelling based on X-ray crystallographic data and literature data.
