Reportlinker Adds Enzymes in Drug Manufacturing
Date:5/30/2011

ials and other inputs by improving efficiency and allowing reactions to take place under milder conditions. Biocatalytic steps often offer a powerful solution to the problem of controlling stereochemistry.

Both green chemistry and industrial biotechnology are important emerging trends worldwide. Enzymes are central to both disciplines so developments are likely to increase the focus on biocatalysis and encourage its wider implementation within industry.

There are many potential sources of innovative enzymes that could meet the needs of pharma. These include organisms from extreme environments and genomic databases. New and old enzymes can be optimized for their properties using technologies such as directed evolution.

Key reasons to purchase this research

- What benefits do enzymes offer compared with conventional chemical synthesis?

- How can an enzymatic steps be integrated into an existing manufacturing process and what are the challenges in so doing?

- Why are enzymes such a key focus in both green chemistry and industrial biotechnology?

- How can a natural enzyme be modified so that its properties are compatible with process conditions typically found in the pharmaceutical industry?

- What sectors of industry currently make the best use of enzymes in their processes and can pharma follow suit?
