Biocatalysis: Enzymatic Synthesis for Industrial Applications

Snajdrova, Radka, Wu, Shuke, Moore, Jeffrey, Baldenius, Kai and Bornscheuer, Uwe (2020) Biocatalysis: Enzymatic Synthesis for Industrial Applications. Angewandte Chemie (International ed. in English). ISSN 15213773


Biocatalysis has found numerous applications in various fields as an alternative to chemical catalysis. The use of enzymes in organic synthesis, especially to make chiral compounds for pharmaceuticals as well for the flavors and fragrance industry, are the most prominent examples. In addition, biocatalysts are also used on large scale to make specialty and even bulk chemicals. This review intends to give illustrative examples in this field with a special focus on scalable chemical production using enzymes. It also discusses the opportunities and limitations of enzymatic syntheses at distinct examples and provides an outlook on emerging enzyme classes with potential for industrial applications.
