Offering recent worldwide developments, internationally known scientists report on enzymes that are potentially important to large-scale commercial biochemical processes, including fuel and chemical feedstock production, pulp and paper processing, waste degradation and processing, and food processing. Chapters cover basic knowledge of what enzymes are available, what their properties are, and how best to use them. Describes specific enzyme applications, methods of enzyme production, and characteristics of individual enzymes. Among the methods for producing and recovering enzymes described are enzyme cloning, liquid fermentation, enzyme immobilization, and enzyme cross-linking. Also presents alternate viewpoints on the question of lignin degradation and other controversial subjects.

Editorial Reviews

In nearly 40 papers from an April 1990 symposium at the American Chemical Society meeting in Boston, contributors from universities consider enzymes of current or potential importance to large-scale commercial bioconversion processes. They describe the present knowledge about enzymes in specific applications, preferred methods of enzyme production, characteristics of individual enzymes, and recommendations for future research.
