<b>Enzyme-Based Organic Synthesis</b> <p><b>An insightful exploration of an increasingly popular technique in organic chemistry </b> <p>In <i>Enzyme-Based Organic Synthesis</i>, expert chemist Dr. Cheanyeh Cheng delivers a comprehensive discussion of the principles, methods, and applications of enzymatic and microbial processes for organic synthesis. The book thoroughly explores this growing area of green synthetic organic chemistry, both in the context of academic research and industrial practice. <p>The distinguished author provides a single point of access for enzymatic methods applicable to organic synthesis and focuses on enzyme catalyzed organic synthesis with six different classes of enzyme. This book serves as a link between enzymology and biocatalysis and serves as an invaluable reference for the growing number of organic chemists using biocatalysis. <p><i>Enzyme-Based Organic Synthesis</i> provides readers with multiple examples of practical applications of the main enzyme classes relevant to the pharmaceutical, medical, food, cosmetics, fragrance, and health care industries. <p>Readers will also find: <ul><li>A thorough introduction to foundational topics, including the discovery and nature of enzymes, enzyme structure, catalytic function, molecular recognition, enzyme specificity, and enzyme classes</li> <li>Practical discussions of organic synthesis with oxidoreductases, including oxidation reactions and reduction reactions</li> <li>Comprehensive explorations of organic synthesis with transferases, including transamination with aminotransferases and phosphorylation with kinases</li> <li>In-depth examinations of organic synthesis with hydrolases, including the hydrolysis of the ester bond</li></ul> <p>Perfect for organic synthetic chemists, chemical and biochemical engineers, biotechnologists, process chemists, and enzymologists, <i>Enzyme-Based Organic Synthesis</i> is also an indispensable resource for practitioners in the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, and fragrance industries that regularly apply this type of synthesis.
