In living systems the majority of biological reactions is being catalyzed by enzymes. The special feature of biocatalysts lies in their ability to increase reaction rates to a million fold without being consumed or permanently altered by the reaction. An interesting and useful aspect to employ enzymes in organic chemistry is their chirality and unique stereostructure, resulting in a high substrate specificity as well as regio- and stereoselectivity.
