In the last decade, whole cells and enzymes have been used extensively in organic synthesis to obtain homochiral products in a variety of organic reactions. Baker’s yeast, which has a large potential as a catalyst in organic chemistry, owing to ease of handling and broad substrate acceptability, has been widely used, mainly in the reduction of the carbonyl groups of prochiral ketones, producing alcohols with high enantiomeric purity. This review describes the most relevant recent papers not only on the reduction of carbonyl groups, but also on other aspects of utilizing baker’s yeast.
