Biocatalysis Enzyme Guide is Here!

This post was originally published on this siteBiocatalysis—the use of enzymes to catalyze chemical reactions—has gained in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Biocatalysis works. Increasingly, enzymes are among the first choices of catalysts for a chemical reaction, no longer relegated to a back-up strategy to be considered when everything else has failed. The use of enzymes leads … Read More
