Biocatalysis in ionic liquids

Author affiliations


This review describes the recent developments of enzymatic catalysis in ionic liquids, reporting the use of different biocatalysts in organic synthesis. Several ionic liquids appear as an alternative to conventional organic solvents, providing comparable or higher rates and, in some cases, improved enantioselectivity.
