Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The present Special Issue aims to combine a group of articles devoted to the use of protein-based catalysts. Biocatalysis is unquestionably one of the major pillars of sustainable and green chemistry. Protein-based catalysts have numerous applications outside of biological systems. They are widely used in industry, medicine, and biotechnology. Additionally, scientists are actively researching and engineering new enzymes with enhanced catalytic properties for specific applications.

Articles devoted to all applications of proteins-based catalysts in the most distinguished fields in the form of original research papers, review articles, and short communications are welcome.

If you would like to submit papers to this Special Issue or have any questions, please contact the in-house editor, Dr. Duangkamon Phuakkhaw ([email protected]).
