New developments, such as dynamic resolution, stereo-inversion and enantio-convergent processes are included.
Special techniques, such as the use of enzymes in organic solvents, immobilization techniques and the use of modified enzymes, are treated in a separate section. A final chapter deals with the basic rules for the safe and practical handling of biocatalysts. This chemistrry is a must for everyone with an abiding interest in this topic.

Kinetics, equilibria, and their effects on selectivity and enantioselectivity are explained in careful detail, with interesting reactions provided to exemplify these concepts. After a basic introduction into the use of biocatalysts – principles of stereoselective transformations, kinetics and enzyme properties – the different types of reactions are explained according to the ‘reaction principle’, such as hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation, C-C bond formation, etc.
Introduction and Background Information: This book is not a reference work, though, since it includes explanations of the many reaction classes such as hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation, etc. Site Search any all words.
Book Review: Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry – Kurt Faber
In this revised and corrected 5th edition, emphasis has been given to an improved didactic style in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the underlying principles. In this book, Kurt Faber, who holds the position of Dozent at chemistty institution, has produced an outstanding teaching aid in the area of biotransformations.
Over the last two decades, this methodology has become an indispensable tool for asymmetric synthesis, not only at the academic level, but also on an industrial scale.
Nonetheless, it enumerates all of the most important aspects, and in this regard will be of interest to the researcher who wishes to biotransformatlons working in the field of biotransformations.
