Introduction to Biocatalysis Using Enzymes and Microorganisms by Stanley M. Roberts

Book Description

This is an introductory text intended to give the non-specialist a comprehensive insight into the science of biotransformations. The book traces the history of biotransformations, clearly spells out the pros and cons of conducting enzyme-mediated versus whole-cell bioconversions, and gives a variety of examples wherein the bio-reaction is a key element in a reaction sequence leading from cheap starting materials to valuable end-products (such as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals, fragrances and flavours). Biotransformations involving the hydrolysis of esters, amides and nitriles, the synthesis of esters and amides, reduction and oxidation reactions and carbon-carbon bond-forming systems are discussed. The book finishes with a discussion of some industrially important large-scale bioconversions.

Books By Author Stanley M. Roberts

Introduction to Biological and Small Molecule Drug Research and Development by Stanley M. Roberts Introduction to Biological and Small Molecule Drug Research and Development, Hardback (May 2013)

Provides an introduction to understand the science behind successful pharmaceutical research and development programs. Explaining the basic principles, this book compares and contrasts approaches to both biopharmaceuticals (proteins) and small molecule drugs and presents an overview of the business and management issues for these approaches.

Catalysts for Fine Chemical Synthesis by Stanley M. Roberts Catalysts for Fine Chemical Synthesis, Hardback (July 2007)

Volume 5 in the Catalysts for Fine Chemical Synthesis series describes new procedures for the regio- and stereo-controlled transformations of compounds involving oxidation or reduction reactions. It describes a wide range of catalysts, including organometallic systems, biocatalysts and biomimetics.

Biocatalysts for Fine Chemicals Synthesis by Stanley M. Roberts Biocatalysts for Fine Chemicals Synthesis, Hardback (April 1999)

This collection of protocols on the use and handling of cells and enzymes in organic synthesis should be useful for chemists who are expected to be able to use enzymes as normal catalysts.

Introduction to Biocatalysis Using Enzymes and Micro-Organisms by Stanley M. Roberts Introduction to Biocatalysis Using Enzymes and Micro-Organisms, Paperback (January 1995)

This book gives an introduction to biotransformations, the practice of harnessing biological catalysts for the preparation of useful chemicals.
