Efficient, low-energy chemical synthesis using enzymes for biocatalysis

Chemical synthesis and manufacture can be an incredibly energy-intensive and polluting industry. This is because many reactions require very high temperatures and/or extreme conditions, along with the use of many toxic reagents for the right chemistry to take place. There is an ever-increasing interest in finding milder reactions and alternative catalysts to produce many of the chemicals we need for pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and other speciality applications.

Professor Thomas Moody, Vice President of Technology Development and Commercialization at Almac Sciences, UK, has been developing new reaction alternatives, including the use of biocatalysts, to achieve highly selective reaction outcomes under more environmentally friendly conditions.
