Biocatalysis: We create chemistry - with a little help from enzymes
September 24-28, 2017
In the last decades the application of enzymes for enantioselective syntheses has made its way to industrial use. BASF has led this development with its Chipros® product line of chiral intermediates with a particular focus on chiral amines. However, the horizon for enzymatic catalysis is now reaching beyond pharma intermediates. Examples for non-chiral volume chemical application will be given.
