Engineered Enzymes Facilitate Efficient Biocatalysis for the Sustainable Production of Chiral Amines
Time: 16:40 - 17:00
Date: 27 September
Theatre: Room A
Biocatalysis provides great capabilities for the synthesis of interesting API (precursors) such as chiral amines. However, enzymes are often limited by the solubility of hydrophobic substrates in aqueous reaction environments. By employing enzyme engineering and switching the solvent system, these issues can be overcome, and very efficient reaction systems can be designed.
