(+/-)-6-Acetoxy-3-methylcyclohex-2-en-1-one was resolved by PLE catalyzed hydrolysis to afford (+)-6-hydroxy-3-methylcyclohex-2-en-1-one in >95% e.e. (+)-6-Hydroxy-3-methylcyclohex-2-en-1-one was transformed to its (S)-O-acetyllactyl ester derivative to determine the e.e. %. Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd
