Abstract

Over the past year, an important area of research has been directed towards the fundamental aspects of enzymes and new applications of enzymology in monophasic organic media. Much of this research has focused on the factors that influence enzymatic catalysis in monophasic organic solvents, including the importance of enzyme-associated water, and the effect of organic solvents on enzyme structure and thermodynamic features. From an applications perspective, new advances in the use of enzymes in organic and polymer syntheses and optical resolutions have been made.
