General concept on enzymes and enzymatic transformation along with the importance of carrying out enzymatic reactions in organic solvents is mentioned in this introductory chapter. A concluding Scope of the Book indicates that the book deals mainly with the transformations mediated by two important hydrolytic enzymes – glycosidases and lipases.
