Site Search any all words. This well-established textbook on biocatalysis provides a basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in modern organic chemistry, as well as a condensed introduction into this field.
Nonetheless, it enumerates all of the most important aspects, and in this regard will be of interest to the researcher who wishes to begin working in the field of biotransformations. 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.
Book Review: Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry – Kurt Faber
A final chapter deals with the basic rules for the safe and practical handling of biocatalysts. 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.
Introduction murt 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. Kinetics, equilibria, and their effects on selectivity and enantioselectivity are explained in careful detail, with interesting reactions provided to exemplify these concepts.

Biotransformations in organic chemistry : a textbook / Kurt Faber – Details – Trove
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.
In this revised and corrected 5th edition, emphasis has been given biotransforjations an improved didactic style in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the underlying principles.
The use of biocatalysts, employed either as isolated enzymes or whole microbial cells, offers a remarkable arsenal of highly selective transformations for state-of-the-art synthetic organic chemistry.
New developments, such as dynamic resolution, orgaanic 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 prganic a separate section. This book is a must for everyone with an abiding interest in this topic.
