A novel one-pot chemo-enzymatic method was developed for the preparation of chiral α-halogenated aryl alcohols from cheap aryl ketones. Firstly, the α-halogenated aryl ketones were obtained via halogenation of aryl ketones catalyzed by p-toluenesulfonic acid. Then, α-halogenated aryl ketones was asymmetric reduced to chiral α-halogenated aryl alcohols by adding cell suspension of Rhodotorula sp. AS2.2241 with carbonyl reductase activity into the reaction system without isolating intermediate products. The best reaction condition was optimized for each step and the coupling condition of chemical and biological reaction was studied in detail. It was found that the concentration of organic solvent and the pH value are key factors that affect the enzyme activity of biocatalytic reaction. Under optimized reaction and coupling conditions, four kinds of chiral α-halogenated aryl alcohols were obtained with high yield and high optical purity (yield > 95%, ee > 99%).
