Perfect for biochemists, synthetic and organic chemists, this book covers all important reactions, including C–C coupling reactions, oxidation reactions and many more.

Divided into two parts, the first section on methodology presents new innovative methods for enzymatic catalysis optimization, including such new trends as medium engineering, directed evolution and computer–aided prediction of enantioselectivity. The second and main section deals with applications to synthesis, showing important reaction types and their applications. Only those reactions with very high selectivity are presented, allowing readers to improve their own reaction yields.
