A final chapter deals with the basic rules for the safe and practical handling of biocatalysts.

Introduction and Background Information: This book is a must for everyone with an abiding interest in this topic. Nonetheless, it enumerates all of the most important aspects, and in this regard will be of giotransformations to the researcher who wishes to begin working in the field of biotransformations.

Biotransformations in organic chemistry : a textbook / Kurt Faber – Details – Trove

This well-established textbook on biocatalysis provides a basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in modern organic chemistry, as biotransflrmations as a condensed introduction into this field. In this book, Kurt Faber, who holds the position of Dozent at this 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.

In this revised and corrected orvanic edition, emphasis has been given to an improved didactic style in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the underlying principles. 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 – fabeg 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.
