Bio-catalysis & Bio-transformation
Bio-catalysis in future literally impact almost every facet of industrial processes – drug material manufacture, food flavours, fragrances, electronic chemicals, polymers. Bio-catalysis is a chemical process which uses enzymes like protein & organic substances as catalyst. Adopting the use of biocatalyst or enzyme catalyst as a mainstream in industrial processes paves a great way for Green Chemistry. Biotransformation deals with the modification of chemical compounds like amino acids, nutrients, toxin & drugs in body by the use of organisms. These modifications end up with mineral products like CO2 , H2O or water soluble compounds which can be easily excreted.
