1. In the stereoselective synthesis of a chiral amine in which a ketone is brought into contact with a transaminase in the presence of an amino donor, the carbonyl group of the ketone being bound either to two substituents that differ from each other in structure or chirality or to a divalent group that together with the carbonyl group constitutes a chiral cyclic structure, the improvement which comprises utilizing 2-aminopropane as the amine donor.
