3-Chloropropiophenone was used in the asymmetric reduction of (S)-3-chloro-1-phenylpropanol using preheated Candida utilis cells immobilized in calcium alginate gel beads. It was also used in the synthesis of (R)-3-chloro-1-phenyl-1-propanol via asymmetric reduction using in generated oxazaborolidine catalyst derived from (S)-diphenylprolinol.
