The use of enzymes in organic synthesis and the life sciences: perspectives from the Swiss Industrial Biocatalysis Consortium (SIBC)

Author affiliations

Abstract

The potential of biotechnology by means of biocatalysis or biosynthesis in organic synthesis is far from being fully exploited. For this reason a group of life science companies active in pharmaceuticals, flavour and fragrance, vitamin and fine chemicals businesses describe some examples of the use of enzymes in industrial organic synthesis and discuss why enzymes are still the exception rather than the rule in organic synthesis.
