The course is about replacing chemical production methods with bio-based, where one of the aims is to achieve greater environmental sustainability. It is aimed to teach how enzymes are used in industrial processes for production of chemical products like fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other refined products. It provides an overview of the different enzyme classes coupled to the catalyzed chemical reactions and it describes stereochemistry and methods to optimize the stereochemical outcome. Several industrial processes are described as examples.
