Trends and innovations in industrial biocatalysis for the production of fine chemicals



Trends and innovations in industrial biocatalysis for the production of fine chemicals



Current Opinion in Biotechnology 15(4): 272-279



Biocatalysis has become an established technology for the industrial manufacture of fine chemicals. In recent years, a multitude of chemical companies have embraced biocatalysis for the manufacture of desired stereoisomers, and new or improved methods for the synthesis of enantiomerically pure alpha- and beta-amino acids, amines, amides, peptides, nitriles, alcohols, organic acids and epoxides have emerged. Furthermore, the selectivity and mild operational conditions of biocatalysts are increasingly applied in industry to modify complex target molecules. These recent innovations in the manufacture of industrial fine chemicals using biocatalysis are discussed from an industrial perspective.
