Biotransformations are reactions catalyzed by either enzymes or microbes which are of potential use to preparative synthetic chemistry. Biotransformation science can include microbiological and biochemical techniques with which the organic chemist is unfamiliar, and can result in significant research and economic benefits.
The book assists chemistry postgraduates and researchers in both academia and industry who understand biotransformation methodology and its value, but do not know how to implement the relevant experimental techniques in the laboratory. It is written in an accessible and user-friendly way that should facilitate the introduction of biocatalysis into labs.
