Science of Synthesis: Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis Vol. 3


Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9783131746719
Publication Date: March 2015

The three Science of Synthesis volumes on "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis"
present a broad contemporary overview on the state-of-the-art in enzymatic
methods for asymmetric synthesis suitable for academics and industrial
researchers working in the field of organic synthesis. The goal is to start a
new wave of enthusiasm for biocatalysis in the broader community and to give an
overview of the field. "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis" offers critical
reviews of organic transformations by experts, including experimental
procedures. The organization is based on the type of reaction performed under

Volume 3 begins with oxidation. A chapter on enzyme-catalyzed dihydroxylation
is followed by reviews of alkane oxidation. Oxidations of alcohols, carbonyl
compounds, and heteroatoms are covered, as are halogenations. The use of
biocatalysts in total synthesis, cascade reactions, and large-scale industrial
applications is considered. Finally, emerging trends are
