DossierOrganic Chemistry and Biocatalysis Laboratory (LCOB)

Biocatalysis is one of the approaches of green chemistry. By using the catalysts of the living world, the enzymes, it is possible to access reactivities that are unusual or non-existent in conventional chemistry under conditions compatible with environmental protection. A biocatalytic stage may then effectively replace a stage in an existing process but, even more advantageously, the particular reactivities of enzymes enable the design of new synthesis routes with sequences of biocatalytic stages enabling faster and more effective access to the products of interest.
