KURT FABER BIOTRANSFORMATIONS IN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY PDF

Springer Description The use of biocatalysts, employed either as isolated enzymes or whole microbial cells, offers a remarkable arsenal of highly selective transformations for state-of-the-art synthetic organic chemistry. Over the last two decades, this methodology has become an indispensable tool for asymmetric synthesis, not only at the academic level, but also on an industrial scale. This well-established textbook on biocatalysis provides a basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in modern organic chemistry, as well as a condensed introduction into this field. Special techniques, such as the use of enzymes in organic solvents, immobilization techniques and the use of modified enzymes, are treated in a separate section. A final chapter deals with the basic rules for the safe and practical handling of biocatalysts. In this revised and corrected 5th edition, emphasis has been given to an improved didactic style in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the underlying principles.

In this revised and corrected 5th edition, emphasis has been given to an improved didactic style in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the underlying principles. New developments, such as dynamic resolution, stereo-inversion and enantio-convergent processes are included.

In this book, Kurt Faber, who holds the position of Dozent at this institution, has produced an outstanding teaching aid in the area of biotransformations.

Kinetics, equilibria, and their effects on selectivity and enantioselectivity are explained in careful detail, with interesting reactions provided to exemplify these concepts. This book is not a reference work, though, since it includes explanations of the many reaction classes such as hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation, etc. Nonetheless, it enumerates all of the most important aspects, and in this regard will be of interest to the researcher who wishes to begin working in the field of biotransformations.

This book is a must for everyone with an abiding interest in this topic. Site Search.

Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry: A Textbook

During the last decade, this methodology has now generally been accepted as a complementary method to the already existing tools. This first textbook on biocatalysis provides a basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in biocatalysis, as well as a condensed introduction into this field. After a basic introduction into the use of biocatalysts - principles of stereoselective transformations, kinetics, enzyme nomenclature and handling - the different types of reactions are explained according to the "reaction principle". The 5th edition From www. Chris Hamilton, Queens University Belfast "… To summarize, the book is comprehensive, well structured and easy to read either cover-to-cover or by just dipping into a particular topic of interest. It is a combination of a general introduction to the theoretical principles of synthetic biotransformations, an outline of the practicalities which need to be considered and a compact, yet comprehensive, review of discoveries and developments which have driven this field towards maturity over the past twenty years.
