Biocatalysts are increasingly being adopted due to the important role they play in helping meet the more prominent sustainability goals of the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and fine chemical industries. Biocatalysts offer several advantages over traditional chemical catalysts including:
  • High reaction specificity leading to less by-products and simpler purification
  • Ability to perform challenging chemistries not feasible by conventional organic synthesis
  • Mild reaction conditions like ambient temperatures and neutral pH enabling energy savings
  • Reduced use of toxic reagents and solvents aligned with green chemistry principles
  • Improved stereoselectivity for production of single enantiomers critical for pharmaceutical activity
  • Flexible substrate scope from natural enzyme evolution
  • Biodegradability and derived from renewable resources
The Global Market for Biocatalysts 2024-2035 is a comprehensive market research report that provides an in-depth analysis of the rapidly evolving biocatalysts industry.
