Biocatalysis -
from Discovery to Application

We have a passion for sustainable processes and enzymes are a step closer to greener synthetic strategies.

Research Highlights

Enzyme Toolbox

We have introduced many enzymes in our toolbox over the years (and we always look for more!) to make our chemistry more and more versatile.

Flow Biocatalysis

We combine different enzymes, those that offer optimal characteristics for our chemistry, in continuous artificial biocatalytic pathways.

Enzyme immobilization

Enzyme stability can be greatly enhanced if the biocatalyst is anchored to a support. We develop novel strategies for enzyme immobilization.

Chemo-enzymatic Processes

Flow equipment and compartmentalisation of reaction steps offer an exceptional opportunity to integrate enzymes in organic syntheses.
