Bridges the gap between chemical and biological catalysis. Reports on new developments in biocatalysis and biomimetic catalysis and explores future applications of catalysis in the chemical and biotechnology industries. Major themes include the use of computers in biocatalyst design; applications and properties of surface-bound enzymes; biomimetic catalysts and hybrid enzymes; and enzymes in organic solvents and reverse micelles. Focuses on both chemical and engineering aspects of novel biocatalytic systems, describing both fundamental and practical aspects.
