Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Enzymatic monomer synthesis, polymer modifications and polymerizations are powerful and versatile approaches which can compete with chemical and physical techniques for the production of known materials such as “commodity plastics” but also for the synthesis of novel macromolecules so far not accessible via traditional chemical approaches. Biocatalytic synthetic pathways towards polymeric materials are very attractive as they have many advantages such as mild reaction conditions, high enantio-, regio-, chemoselectivity and are nontoxic natural catalysts.

This special issue of Polymers entitled "Enzymes in Monomer and Polymer Synthesis" will cover the whole line of current research involved in this field starting from enzyme development, enzyme immobilization, sustainable monomers, in vitro and in vivo monomer synthesis towards enzymatic polymer modifications and polymerizations.
