Biocatalysis as a Tool for the Synthetic Chemist

View Full Event Details

The aim of the course is to give organic chemists an understanding and an overview of the subject of biotransformations. Attendees will learn about the main classes of enzymes and the transformations these enzymes carry out.

Each transformation type will be illustrated with examples and case studies. The course will also include problem sessions where attendees work on real examples applying biotransformations to organic synthesis. Recent developments in the field will be covered, as well as an overview of the sort of equipment and resources required.


  • Dr. Andrew Carnell, University of Liverpool
  • Dr. Will Watson, Scientific Update

Who Should Attend

  • Any Organic Chemist involved in synthesis, particularly those involved in designing novel, green synthetic routes
  • Chemists who want to learn how biocatalysis can help them
  • Those involved in the scale up of biocatalytic reactions
