Biocatalysis: Fundamentals and Applications
John Wiley & Sons, Feb 27, 2007 - Science - 634 pages
The whole range of biocatalysis, from a firm grounding in theoretical concepts to in-depth coverage of practical applications and future perspectives.
The book not only covers reactions, products and processes with and from biological catalysts, but also the process of designing and improving such biocatalysts.
One unique feature is that the fields of chemistry, biology and bioengineering receive equal attention, thus addressing practitioners and students from all three areas.
