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.

"...the book is excellent and could be read cover to cover or used for reference and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the field of biocatalysis whether they be graduate students just entering the field or more experienced practitioners."

Organic Process Research & Development

"This guidebook is warmly recommended to scientists in academia, industry and authorities engaged in biocatalysis because one unique feature of primary importance is that the interdisciplinary fields of chemistry, biology and bioengineering receive equal attention, thus, addressing both practioners and students from all three areas."

AFS

"The book nicely brings together the essentials of biocatalysis including reactions, the products and processes that utilize the methodology, and techniques for improving biocatalysts."

Catalyst

"I strongly recommend it to advanced students, experienced chemists, biologists, and engineers interested in or actively working in biocatalysis, as it is a rich source of information and offers an excellent opportunity to get an insight into neighbouring areas of expertise."

Angewandte Chemie I.E.

"The content of the book is excellent...the book is excellent and could be read cover to cover or used for reference and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the field of biocatalysis..."

Organic Process Research & Development

"With their book "Biocatalysis" Bommarius and Riebel successfully bridge the gap between textbooks and original research papers. The book is recommended for advanced students, experienced chemists and engineers interested in the area of industrial biocatalysis."

CHEMBIOCHEM

"...a timely and detailed summary of the important recent developments in the rapidly moving fields pertinent to harnessing the efficiency and specificity of biological catalysts. It will definitely assist research scientists′ efforts to improve their own chemical transformations."
