Enzyme-mediated oxidations for the chemist

Author affiliations


Biocatalysis is an enabling technology adding to organic oxidation chemistry. Especially the high selectivity of enzymatic oxidation coevally operating under mild conditions and not necessitating problematic solvents makes it a very valuable tool for (green) chemistry. The present state of the art in the use of enzymes and microorganisms for catalytic oxidation and oxyfunctionalization chemistry is reviewed.
