Catalysts are widely used in many industries for production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fuels and energy. There is a need for more sustainable production processes, with reduced energy and raw material consumption together with a reduction in waste and toxic by-products. Conventional synthetic catalysts often demand harsh chemical conditions and multi-step processes. Biocatalysts, i.e., enzymes, have high substrate specificity and good catalytic efficiency under mild reaction conditions and… CONTINUE READING
