CHEM 6750 - Biocatalysis: Fundamentals and Applications


This course provides an introduction to the field of biocatalysis that includes both free enzyme and whole cell processes. Lectures on free enzymes will discuss their catalytic mechanism(s), immobilization and use in aqueous and organic media. Lectures on biocatalytic transformations by whole cells will discuss metabolic pathways to products, fermentation processes, and whole cell immobilization. Integrated within the course will be discussions of the relative merits of biocatalysis vs. chemical catalysis for chemical conversions as well as examples of current uses of biocatalytic processes by industry.
