Oxynitrilases (HNL)

Short Description:

About oxynitrilases

ES-HNLs: An class enzyme that enantioselectively catalyze the addition of HCN to aldehydes (ketones) to obtain R or S type cyanide alcohols, which can be easily converted into many kinds of drugs or drug intermediates through chemical method.
There are 29 kinds of oxynitrilase products (Number as ES-HNL-101~ES-HNL-129) developed by SyncoZymes. SZ-HNL is a useful tool to regio- and stereo- selective synthesis of (R)-cyanohydrins or (S)-cyanohydrins from a variety of aromatic, aliphatic and heterocyclic aldehydes or even ketones.
Catalytic reaction type:

Oxynitrilases HNL2

★ High substrate specificity.
★ Strong chiral selectivity.
★ High conversion.
★ Less by-products.
★ Mild reaction conditions.
★ Environmentally friendly.

Instructions for use:

➢ Normally, the reaction system should include substrate (aldehydes / ketones, HCN), buffer solution (optimum reaction pH) and the enzymes.
➢ All the ES-HNLs can be tested respectively in the reaction system above or with the HNL Screening Kit (SynKit HNL).
➢ All kinds of ES-HNLs corresponding to various optimum reaction conditions should be studied individually.
➢ High concentration Substrate or product with may inhibit ES-HNL’s activity. However, the inhibition can be relieved by batch addition of substrate.

Application Examples:

Example 1 (1):

Oxynitrilases HNL3


Keep 2 years below -20℃.


Never contact with extreme conditions such as: high temperature, high/low pH and high concentration organic solvent.
