"Chapters cover key biotransformations from the literature, detailing the procedures used, the sources of the starting materials and reagents, references, and tips and advice, where appropriate." (JACS, 2010)

"It starts with a review of the current use of biocatalysis in the pharmaceutical industry. Although this is focused on a large pharmaceutical company (GlaxoSmithKline), it covers a wide variety of aspects of the industry and offers insightful comparisons of biocatalysis with 'traditional' organic synthesis." (Chemistry World, July 2010)

"I can recommend to all those who are interesting in carrying out biotransformations in the laboratory, and the book should help persuade those who have never used a biotransformation in an organic synthesis, to try one for the first time." (Organic Process Research & Development Journal, 2010)
