Abstract

Today enzymatic catalysis is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry and is expanding fast into the fine and specialty chemicals sector, driven by the need for evermore sustainable chemistry. This review highlights the increasing emphasis now placed on achieving better process performance metrics to reflect the demand for cost-effective and scalable processes, ready for direct implementation into industry. The review also highlights other developments at the frontiers of this field including flow chemistry and multi-step enzymatic reactions, which benefit sustainability.
