The development of new biocatalytic reactions for organic synthesis

Conference Dates

September 15-19, 2019


This lecture will describe recent work from our laboratory aimed at developing new biocatalysts for enantioselective organic synthesis, with emphasis on the design of in vitro and in vivo cascade processes for generating chiral pharmaceutical building blocks. By applying the principles of ‘biocatalytic retrosynthesis’ we have shown that it is increasingly possible to design new synthetic routes to target molecules in which biocatalysts are used in the key bond forming steps [1].
