Our ability to tailor enzymatic properties is a critical factor for biocatalyst application in the industrial sector. Although many wild-type enzymes have been found capable of promiscuously catalysing desired anthropogenic reactions, their activity and selectivity for non-natural transformations is often poor. Consequently, it is crucial to...

Contemporary Biocatalysis heavily relies on enzyme engineering as natural enzymes frequently lack the requisite attributes for effective organic synthesis. The inherent limitations in stability, catalytic activity, and selectivity of wild-type enzymes often hinder their suitability for chemical synthesis. Over the past 25 years, there has...

The biocatalytic oxidative deamination of β-amino alcohols holds significant practical potential in kinetic resolution and/or deracemization process to access (R)-β-amino alcohols. This study exemplifies a notable instance of acquisition and utilization of this valuable oxidative deamination activity. Initially, the mutation N261M (M0) was...

The downstream product transformation of lignin depolymerization is of great interest in the production of high-value aromatic chemicals. However, this transformation is often impeded by chemical oxidation under harsh reaction conditions. In this study, we demonstrate that hypohalites generated in situ by the vanadium-containing...

Astonishing progress has been achieved in unlocking new-to-nature biocatalysis in the past decades. The progress in protein engineering enabled research to efficiently incorporate artificial structural elements into enzyme design. Recent trends include cofactor mimetics, artificial metalloenzymes and non-canonical amino acids. In this...

The unmatched chemo-, regio-, and stereoselectivity of enzymes renders them powerful catalysts in the synthesis of chiral active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Inspired by the discovery route toward the LPA<sub>1</sub>-antagonist BMS-986278, access to the API building block (1S,3R)-3-hydroxycyclohexanecarbonitrile was envisaged using an...

A visible-light-driven photocatalytic decarboxylation of palmitic acid and related fatty acids is described in this study. Remarkable decarboxylation rates have been observed with full conversion in less than 20 min. In this study, we have<br/>demonstrated that sunlight irradiation, even on cloudy days, can deliver similar results to traditional...

A sustainable scaling-up process for the biocatalytic production of new bioactive provitamin-B<sub>5</sub> monoacyl esters has been demonstrated. A solvent-free reaction protocol, based on the formation of eutectic mixtures between neat substrates, renders highly efficient direct esterification of free fatty acids (i.e., from C<sub>6</sub> to...

Chiral N-heterocycles are a common motif in many active pharmaceutical ingredients; however, their synthesis often relies on the use of heavy metals. In recent years, several biocatalytic approaches have emerged to reach enantiopurity. Here, we describe the asymmetric synthesis of 2-substituted pyrrolidines and piperidines, starting from...

A peroxygenase-catalysed hydroxylation of organosilanes is reported. The recombinant peroxygenase from Agrocybe aegerita (AaeUPO) enabled efficient conversion of a broad range of silane starting materials in attractive productivities (up to 300 mM h<sup>−1</sup>), catalyst performance (up to 84 s<sup>−1</sup> and more than 120 000 catalytic...

The recent increase of interest in photocatalysis spread to biocatalysis and triggered a rush for the development of light-dependent enzyme-mediated or enzyme-coupled processes. After several years of intense research on photobiocatalysis, it is time to evaluate the state of the field in a structured manner. In this Perspective, we suggest to...

Solar-driven N<sub>2</sub> fixation offers a green alternative to the highly energy-intensive Haber-Bosch process that releases more than 300 million metric tons of CO<sub>2</sub> annually to form NH<sub>3</sub>. However, N<sub>2</sub>-reducing photoelectrochemical (PEC) studies have not elucidated how an oxidation reaction affects the N<sub...

Biocatalytic oxidation reactions of toluene derivates to the corresponding aldehydes are typically challenged by regio- and chemoselectivity issues. In this contribution we address both challenges by a combined reactant- and reaction engineering approach. We demonstrate that the peroxygenase-catalysed transformation of ring-substituted...

This review article critically compares two widely used types of catalysis, chemo- and biocatalysis, and provides insights on their greenness according to specified parameters. A comparative analysis of the environmental impact of chemo- and biocatalytic oxyfunctionalisation reactions based on published experimental data reveals that both...

Heme-dependent oxygenases (i.e. P450 monooxygenases and peroxygenases) are highly selective catalysts for the selective oxyfunctionalisation or organic compounds. Both enzyme classes exhibit mechanistic similarities (i.e. using so-called compound I (CpdI) as active oxidation species) and differences in how CpdI is formed. From the differences...

Chiral sulfoxides are valuable building blocks in asymmetric synthesis. However, the biocatalytic synthesis of chiral sulfoxides is still challenged by low product titres. Herein, we report the use of peroxygenase as a catalyst for asymmetric sulfoxidation under non-aqueous conditions. Upon covalent immobilisation, the peroxygenase showed...

H2O2 is a relatively 'green' oxidant because its by-products are only H2O. In recent years, an increasing number of enzymatic synthesis methods based on H2O2 have been estab-lished. H2O2-driven reactions are usually applied as an alternative to NAD(P)H-dependent reactions to avoid complicated cofactor regeneration systems.<br/><br/>The aim of...

Enzyme catalysis, made tremendous progress over the last years in identification of new enzymes and new enzymatic reactivity’s as well as optimization of existing enzymes. However, the performance of the resulting processes is often still limited, e.g., in regard of productivity, realized product concentrations and the stability of the enzymes....

Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) is a popular chemical analysis technique that can be used to measure macromolecular interactions and chemical and physical processes. ITC involves the measurement of heat flow to and from a measurement cell after each injection during a titration experiment. ITC has been useful to measure the thermodynamics...
