Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues, 

Enzymes are an excellent natural catalyst. They are widely used in an extensive number of applications, for example, in the food industry, textile processing, paper recycling, water treatment, energy generation, ethanol production, and recently, in CO2 capture and reutilization. Enzymes help us to improve (bio)chemical processes by using less energy, water and raw materials, and generating less waste, contributing thus to the principles of Green Chemistry. In this Special Issue, we want to highlight new advances in enzymatic development, including aspects such as novel applications of enzymes, enzyme immobilization, enzyme modification, enzymatic cascades, etc.
