Overview

This book offers an explanation of the specific ways that biocatalysis outperforms chemical catalysis by: utilizing ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure to minimize problems of isomerization, racemization, and epimerization; employing microbial cells and enzymes that can be immobilized and reused over many cycles; and overexpressing enzymes for greater economy and efficiency.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
...a welcome addition to the shelves of medicinal chemicals, microbiologists, and biochemical engineers laboring in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and food industries to synthesize chiral products.... "...an excellent book.
Journal of the American Chemical Society
...an excellent text covering all aspects of biocatalysis for the synthesis of chiral compounds. It is an invalauble source book for both academic and industrial researchers with interests in biotransformations.
Journal of Natural Products
...a good reference source for specialists working in the field.

Booknews
Organic chemists from industry and academia, most in Europe but representing a broad geographical spread, explain the specific ways that the process of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, biocatalysis, outperforms chemical catalysis. These include utilizing ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure to minimize problems of isomerization, racemization, and epimerization; employing microbial cells and enzymes that can be immobilized and reused over many cycles; and overexpressing enzymes for greater economy and efficiency. They discuss hydrolytic enzymes, oxygenases in stereoselective and regioselective hydroxylation, epoxidation reactions, the chemoenzymatic synthesis of pheromones, synthesizing chiral intermediates for new drug development, biocatalysis in the enantioselective formation of chiral cyanohydrins, organic synthesis involving enzyme-mediated decarboxylation reactions, enzymatic deprotection techniques, the effectiveness of supercritical carbon dioxide as a solvent, and other topics.
