These are preliminary reports that have not been peer-reviewed. They should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or be reported in news media as established information. For more information, please see our FAQs.
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

The challenging bioamination of hydrophobic substrates has been attained through the employment of a disperse system consisting in a combination of a low polarity solvent (e.g. isooctane or MTBE), a non-ionic surfactant and a minimal amount of water. In these conditions, good conversions are achieved, often coupled with a superior stereoselectivity if compared with the corresponding chemical reductive amination. An array of synthetically useful 4-substituted aminocyclohexanes was consequentially synthesized and stereochemically characterized.
