Multi-Step Enzyme Catalysis Biotransformations and Chemoenzymatic Synthesis by Eduardo Garcia-Junceda

Multi-Step Enzyme Catalysis Biotransformations and Chemoenzymatic Synthesis


Multi-Step Enzyme Catalysis Biotransformations and Chemoenzymatic Synthesis by Eduardo Garcia-Junceda

The first comprehensive coverage of this unique and interdisciplinary field provides a complete overview, covering such topics as chemoenzymatic synthesis, microbial production of DNA building blocks, asymmetric transformations by coupled enzymes and much more. By combining enzymatic and synthetic organic steps, the use of multi-enzyme complexes and other techniques opens the door to reactions hitherto unknown, making this monograph of great interest to biochemists, organic chemists, and chemists working with/on organometallics, as well as catalytic chemists, biotechnologists, and those working in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries.


This book is recommended to organic chemists, biochemists, chemical engineers, microbiologists, and all researchers who are interested in the fundamentals and applications of biocatalysis. ( The Quarterly Review of Biology , September 2009)
