Tailoring the microenvironment of enzymes in water-poor systems

Bo Mattiasson, Patrick Adlercreutz

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Biocatalytic systems using enzymes in organic solvents open up the possibility of performing a whole range of reactions which would not normally occur under physiological conditions. The ability to perform reverse hydrolysis, or to convert substances relatively insoluble in aqueous environments on a scale of practical value in commercial applications are among those reactions for which water-poor systems are appropriate.
