From biomolecule to technical catalysis

Metabolic pathways of living organisms are highly diverse and adaptable entailing development of a multitude of catalytic active biomolecules. Their technological use has gained considerable socio-economic importance in context with sustainable production and activation of renewable resources. Nevertheless, only few biocatalysts are actually in technical use today. Restrictions lie in the special edge conditions of technical systems such as non-aqueous media, multiple phases or shear forces, and in the still limited molecular understanding of biocatalytic activity.
