Introduction to Biocatalysis Using Enzymes and Microorganismsby S. M. Roberts, Nicholas J. Turner, Andrew J. Willetts, Michael K. Turner
Pub. Date: 03/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In spelling out the pros and cons of enzyme-mediated versus whole-cell bioconversions, this text provides a variety of examples wherein the bio-reaction is a key element in a reaction sequence leading from cheap starting materials to valuable end-products (pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, fragrances and flavors).
