Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To generate chirality is essential in synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and drug discovery. Besides conventional chemical synthetic methods, enzymes offer an excellent tool for asymmetric synthesis and enantioselective resolution. Enzyme-catalyzed reactions show excellent chemo-, region-, and stereocontrol. Furthermore, these reactions generally proceed at room temperature at pH≈ 7, in water and don’t require protecting-group manipulations. Considering the advantage of the enzyme catalyzed reactions, this technique may be widely used in chemical and biological research.

This Special Issue on enzyme-catalyzed reactions will offer a good possibility to illustrate the asymmetric catalysis with enzyme, its application in organic synthesis, and the mechanistic principles that govern these reactions. I strongly encourage authors to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue.
