Journal of Molecular Catalysis B Enzymatic (J MOL CATAL B-ENZYM)

Publisher: Elsevier

Journal description

The journal is an international forum devoted to research and developments in the applications of whole-cell and cell-free enzymes as catalysts in organic synthesis. Emphasis is focused on mechanistic and synthetic aspects of the biocatalytic transformation.Papers deal with the following topics; Industrial applications of enzymatic processes, e.g. in fine chemical synthesis; Chemo-, regio- and enantioselective transformations; Screening for biocatalysts; Integration of biocatalytic and chemical steps in organic syntheses; Novel biocatalysts, e.g. enzymes from extremophiles and catalytic antibodies; Enzyme immobilization and stabilization, particularly in non-conventional media; Bioprocess engineering aspects, e.g. membrane bioreactors; Improvement of catalytic performance of enzymes, e.g. by protein engineering or chemical modification; Structural studies, including computer simulation, relating to substrate specificity and reaction selectivity; Biomimetic studies related to enzymatic transformations.
