Biotechnology, A Multi-Volume Comprehensive Treatise, Volume 8A, Bio-transformations I, 2nd, Completely Revised Edition

Description

Biotransformations have developed into an important tool of organic synthesis. Most synthetic sequences will benefit from the use of a biotransformation step, and the use of multiple enzyme single pot reactions enables several steps to be telescoped together.
Volumes 8a and b provide a comprehensive guide to the established and emerging uses of enzymes. Each chapter is devoted to a single class of transformation so that the competing possibilities can be readily compared, and there is a strong emphasis on practical and reliable reactions.
Topics included in Volume 8a are: Perspectives/ Practical Aspects/ Lipases/ Esterases/ Cleavage of Amide Bonds/ Nitriles/ Alkaloids/ Yeast/ Alcohol Dehydrogenases/ Hydroxylation and Dihydroxylation/ Flavin Monooxygenases
Major topics of Volume 8b: Phosphorylation/ C-C Bond Formation/ Formation of Glycoside Bonds/ Synthetic Applications
