Chirality in Organic Synthesis — The Use of Biocatalysts



In this chapter not only the use of biocatalysts in reactions of chiral substrates will be overviewed but there will also be given some general information on the consequences of the phenomenon of chirality for chemistry, as this book is intended to have also non-chemists as potential readers.
