Handbook of Industrial Biocatalysis by Ching T. Hou

By Ching T. Hou

formerly, no finished guide on commercial biocatalysis has been on hand. Soliciting chapters on almost each point of biocatalysis from overseas specialists such a lot actively getting to know the sphere, the guide of commercial Biocatalysis fills this desire.

The instruction manual is split into 3 sections in keeping with sorts of substrates. the 1st part describes the latest biotechnology and bioprocesses for generating business items from hydrophobic substrates reminiscent of oils and fat. The dialogue of biocatalysis covers unmarried and a number of catalytic reactions taken with the production of goods in addition to molecular manipulation of enzymes and product restoration. the goods contain fit nutrition, dietary supplementations, nutraceuticals, distinctiveness chemical compounds, surfactants, biopolymers, and antimicrobial brokers. the second one part covers the creation of value-added items from carbohydrate substrates. The scope of this part contains ethanol construction, oligosaccharides and glycosides, usage of hemicelluloses, and carbohydrate-active enzymes. The 3rd part is devoted to different power business functions corresponding to bioelectrocatalysis for synthesizing chemical compounds, fuels, and new medications. The authors discover novel nutrients supply structures, eco-friendly chemistry, and the commercial purposes of extremophiles.

The organizer of a number of annual around the world symposia on biocatalysis, editor Ching T. Hou has compiled a cornerstone reference for scientists in educational, commercial, and executive study institutes, in addition to for graduate-level scholars fascinated about biosciences, chemical engineering, biotechnology, microbiology, oil and colloid chemistry, and nutrition chemistry.
