Abstract

Expeditious synthesis of (R)-bicalutamide (1), a synthetic antiandrogen, from enantiopure 2-methylpropane-1,2,3-triol monobenzyl ether (4) was achieved. An engineered Bacillus subtilis epoxide hydrolase worked enantioselectively on the racemic epoxide (7) to provide the above starting material in highly enantiomerically enriched state.
