Organic Synthesis and Immobilized Enzymes

The use of enzymes for synthesis of organic compounds has developed as a novel and alternative source of catalysts to traditional organic chemistry synthetic methods, for application into such diverse areas as pharmaceutics, specialty chemicals and fine chemicals. From the classic legacy Sigma-Aldrich enzyme portfolio, selected enzymes and immobilized enzymes are available for your specific needs in organic synthesis.
