The bio-based solvents limonene and p-cymene obtained from citrus waste were innovatively employed as the reaction media for enzymatic synthesis of phosphatidylserine. (R)-(+)-Limonene, which is available in large quantities from citrus waste, and its close derivative p-cymene, are promising green solvents. Herein, they were successfully employed as reaction media for enzyme-mediated transphosphatidylation of phosphatidylcholine with L-serine for phosphatidylserine synthesis for the first time. A 95 % yield of phosphatidylserine was achieved after 12 h and the side-reactions (which are the undesirable hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine) did not happen. This work presents an alternative strategy for preparing phosphatidylserine that possesses obvious advantages over the traditional processes in terms of high efficiency combined with environmental friendliness.
