Beschreibungen

The shift towards being as environmentally-friendly as possible has resulted in the need for this important volume on the topic of biocatalysis. Edited by the father and pioneer of Green Chemistry, Professor Paul Anastas, and by the renowned chemist, Professor Robert Crabtree, this volume covers many different aspects, from industrial applications to the latest research straight from the laboratory. It explains the fundamentals and makes use of everyday examples to elucidate this vitally important field.<br> <br> An essential collection for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of the world of green chemistry, as well as for chemists, environmental agencies and chemical engineers.<br>
Catalysis with Cytochrome P450 Monooxygenases<br> Biocatalytic Hydrolysis of Nitriles<br> Biocatalytic Processes Using Ionic Liquids and Supercritical Carbon Dioxide <br> Thiamine-Based Enzymes for Biotransformations<br> Baeyer-Villiger Monooxygenases in Organic Synthesis<br> Bioreduction by Microorganisms<br> Biotransformations and the Pharma Industry<br> Hydrogenases and Alternative Energy Strategies<br> PAH Bioremediation by Microbial Communities and Enzymatic Activities <br>
Series Editor<br> Paul T. Anastas joined Yale University as Professor and serves as the Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale. From 2004-2006, Paul Anastas has been the Director of the Green Chemistry Institute in Washington, D.C. Until June of 2004 he served as Assistant Director for Environment at e White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where his responsibilities included a wide range of environmental science issues including furthering international public-private cooperation in areas of Science for Sustainability such as Green Chemistry. In 1991, he established the industry-government-university partnership Green Chemistry Program, which was expanded to include basic research, and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. He has published and edited several books in the field of Green Chemistry and is one of the inventors of the 12 principles of Green Chemistry.<br> <br> Volume Editor<br> Bob Crabtree took his first degree at Oxford, did his Ph.D. at Sussex and spent four years in Paris at the CNRS. He has been at Yale since 1977. He has chaired the Inorganic Division at ACS, and won the ACS and RSC organometallic chemistry prizes. He is the author of an organometallic textbook, and editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry and Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry. He has contributed to C-H activation, H2 complexes, dihydrogen bonding, and his homogeneous tritiation and hydrogenation catalyst is in wide use. More recently, he has combined molecular recognition with CH hydroxylation to obtain high selectivity with a biomimetic strategy.<br> <br>
Green Chemistry is of crucial interest in a world where being as environmentally sound as possible is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Its applications include the design of chemical products and processes that help to reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.<br> <br> This handbook comprises 12 volumes, divided into four subject-specific sets:<br> Set I: Green Catalysis<br> - Volume 1: Homogeneous Catalysis<br> - Volume 2: Heterogeneous Catalysis<br> - Volume 3: Biocatalysis<br> Set II: Green Solvents<br> Set III: Green Processes<br> Set IV: Green Products<br> <br> Long established in fermentation, biocatalysis is rapidly expanding at present with the introdcution of the powerful methods of modern enzymology and molecular biology. It is also contributing to the critical area of alternative energy research. Many different aspects of this subject are covered in this book, from established industrial applications to recently emerging research. <br>
