O-Acetyl derivatives of (+/-)-2-furylcarbinols were resolved by PLE catalyzed hydrolysis to afford optically active 2-furylcarbinols in up to 98% e.e. that are valuable chiral building blocks in the synthesis of various biologically active compounds. Enantiomeric excess values were determined by using H-1-NMR and GC analysis of (S)-O-acetyllactyl ester derivatives of 2-furylcarbinols. They were also correlated with the Literature values.
