Overview

Biocatalysis in the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries presents different classes of enzymes in catalysis of chemical reactions to generate chiral molecules and fine chemicals useful in chemo-enzymatic synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. This book explores developments in the biotechnology of enzymes. It covers the use of oxido-reductases, amine oxidases, and aminotransferases in the synthesis of chiral alcohols, aminoalcohols, amino acids, and amines. It discusses aldolases and decarboxylases in asymmetric synthesis and describes techniques in enzyme immobilization, approaches to screen for biocatalysts, and directed evolution of biocatalysts for improving enantioselectivity and substrate specificity.
