About this book

In recent years, enzymatic catalysis in organic solvents-as opposed to aqueous solutions-has gained considerable attention as a powerful new approach to the preparation of natural products, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, and food ingredients. In Enzymes in Nonaqueous Solvents: Methods and Protocols, leading chemists, biochemists, biotechnologists, and process engineers summarize for the first time a wide range of methods for executing enzymatic transformations under nonaqueous conditions. Each method includes detailed step-by-step instructions for its successful completion, a list of materials, and ancillary notes that explain the scientific basis of the procedure, as well as troubleshooting. Also provided are a generic description of key reactions, advice on biocatalyst preparation, discussion of reaction conditions, and instructions on bioreactor design.
Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Enzymes in Nonaqueous Solvents: Methods and Protocols offers today's synthetic chemists, biochemists, and process engineers all the essential information needed to carry out enzymatic reactions in nonaqueous media, as well as to successfully scale up to production quantities.

Reviews

"The handbook provides detailed descriptions of a variety of methods used for performing enzymatic reactions in nonaqueous media." - Journal of the American Chemical Society

"...includes detailed descriptions of the latest technologies used for biocatalysis in nearly anhydrous systems. Numerous specific enzymatic reactions, bioreactors, and useful techniques are carefully explained in a format intelligible to most readers in spite of the great diversity of the fields covered. This work of reference will be extremely valuable to those interested in enzymatic and asymmetric synthesis." - Natural Products Reports
