Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biocatalysis encompasses the use of enzymes or whole cell systems for the conversion of readily available, inexpensive starting materials to high value products. Enzymes frequently display extraordinary chemo-, enantio- or regioselectivity, making them attractive catalysts for a wide range of chemical transformations. Enzymes typically operate under mild conditions of pH and temperature and often are compatible to each other. As a result of these advantages, enzymes and whole cells are increasingly applied in areas ranging from the production of intermediates for pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, agrichemicals, biofuels and performance chemicals. In the light of the increasing importance of biocatalysis, the International Journal of Molecular Science will publish a special issuecovering both fundamental aspects of biocatalysis and advances in industrial applications. Reviews and original papers are welcome and will be considered for publication. Possible Topics include (but are not limited to) directed molecular evolution of enzymes, enzyme discovery and high-throughput screening, enzyme optimization, stabilization and immobilization, new types of reaction transformations, industrial application of enzymes including utilization of biomass, process development and reaction engineering.
