Multi-enzyme cascades utilising variants of galactose oxidase and imine reductase led to the successful conversion of N-Cbz-protected l-ornithinol and l-lysinol to l-3-N-Cbz-aminopiperidine and l-3-N-Cbz-aminoazepane respectively, in up to 54% isolated yield. Streamlining the reactions into one-pot prevented potential racemisation of key labile intermediates and led to products with high enantiopurity.
