Long awaited, "Biocatalysis – Fundamentals and Applications" is finally available: Covering the whole range, from a firm grounding in theoretical concepts to in–depth coverage of the practical aspects and future

perspectives.

The book not only covers reactions, products and processes using biocatalysts, but also methods of designing and improving them. One unique feature is that chemistry, biology and bioengineering receive equal attention, thus addressing practitioners and students from all three fields.
