Albumin as a promiscuous biocatalyst in organic synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Albumin emerged as a biocatalyst in 1980 and the continuing interest in this protein is proved by numerous papers. The use of albumin was initially confined to the field of asymmetric oxidations and reductions, but more recently it has found a broader application to chemical reactions such as additions, condensations and eliminations. This review reports the main applications of albumin in organic synthesis that have appeared in the literature in the past decade.
