Lipases are important catalysts that are able to function in both aqueous and solvent environments, making them particularly versatile for industrial applications such as the production of fine chemicals, biodiesel production and the formation of new food ingredients. Lipases are able to produce chiral products and can be reused multiple times if immobilised, making them cost effective. In this special issue, we aim to showcase the versatility of lipases as biocatalysts and encourage the submission of manuscripts that describe new uses of lipases, or technology that improves the utility of or mechanistic understanding of lipases as biocatalysts.
