About this book

Comprehensive insight into the science of biotransformations.

' ... the book is well presented and has few errors. It is a readable and affordable introduction for those new to this area, particularly synthetic chemists, and would also be useful for an advanced undergraduate or a postgraduate course in the subject.' Chemistry in Britain


Contents

Preface; 1. An historical introduction to biocatalysis using enzymes and microorganisms; 2. The inter-relationship between enzymes and cells with particular reference to whole-cell biotransformations using bacteria and fungi; 3. Useful intermediates and end-products obtained from whole-cell/enzyme catalysed hydrolysis and esterification reactions; 4. Useful intermediates and end-products obtained from biocatalysed oxidation and reduction reactions; 5. Useful intermediates and end-products obtained from biocatalysed carbon-carbon, carbon-oxygen, carbon-nitrogen, and carbon-chalcogen bond-forming reactions; 6. The application of biocatalysis to the manufacture of fine chemicals; Index.
