Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenases (BVMOs) are flavoenzymes that catalyze a remarkably wide variety of oxidative reactions such as regio- and enantioselective Baeyer-Villiger oxidations and sulfoxidations. Several of these conversions are difficult to achieve using chemical approaches. Due to their selectivity and catalytic efficiency, BVMOs are highly valuable biocatalysts for the synthesis of a broad range of fine chemicals. For a long time, only one member of this class of flavin-containing… Expand
