The Hitchhiker's guide to biocatalysis: recent advances in the use of enzymes in organic synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Enzymes are excellent catalysts that are increasingly being used in industry and academia. This perspective is primarily aimed at synthetic organic chemists with limited experience using enzymes and provides a general and practical guide to enzymes and their synthetic potential, with particular focus on recent applications.
