Abstract

Reactions catalyzed by enzymes and enzyme systems display far greater specificities than more conventional forms of organic reactions and, of all the reactions available, enzymatic synthesis and transformations have the greatest potential. We have recently been carrying out studies on the processes for production of various biologically useful coenzymes, vitamins, amino acids and amides, using microbial enzymes as catalysts.
