Biocatalysis -
from Discovery to Application

We have a passion for sustainable processes and enzymes, bringing us a step closer to green synthetic strategies.

Great to see and hear (from afar) about a fantastic conference. Looked like an exciting programme with many @SSPCentre colleagues past @ParadisiResLab and present @BaumannGroupUCD @anita_maguire led by a wonderful chair. Congrats all 👏👏👏 hope you had a ball!

Another great day in Rotterdam, so good to see more #biocatalysis in flow with focus on different aspects (enzyme immobilisation, microfluidics, materials, cascades and chemo-biocatalysis). Major evolution in the field in a short period of time!

You are an organic chemist with a vision and ideas for the future and looking for new academic opportunities? Join us in Helsinki as prof. of organic chemistry @helsinkiuni
Professor or Assistant/Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry

Day 2 at the Flow Chemistry European Summit, so far excellent and great to meet @Luisi_Lab @ML_Contente @KappeLab and many others! Only I missed the group pic…but I’m here too!

On my way to Rotterdam for the Flow Chemistry European Summit 2023. Looking forward to catching up with many friends 😊 #flowchemistry #biocatalysis

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.
