Abstract
The potential advantages displayed by biocatalytic processes for organic synthesis (such as exquisite selectivity under mild operating conditions), have prompted the increasing number of processes running on a commercial scale. However, biocatalysis is still a fairly underutilised technology. As a relatively new technology biocatalytic processes often do not immediately fulfil the required process metrics that are key for an economically and/or environmentally competitive process at an industrial scale (high concentration, high reaction yield, high space-time-yield and high biocatalyst yield). These process metrics can often be attained by improvements in the re...
