About this Book
Biotransformations have developed into an important tool of organic synthesis and most synthetic sequences will benefit from the use of a biotransformation step. This volume completes the collection of biotransformations presented in the Biotechnology series. Volumes 8 a and b provide a comprehensive guide to the established and emerging uses of enzymes, each chapter is devoted to a single class of transformation.
The description of several bond forming reactions is followed by four chapters on structue and catalytic activity. Case studies of important industrial and synthetic applications round off the practical orientation of the book.
