Industrial Enzymes Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Industrial Enzymes
Structure, Function and Applications
edited by Julio Polaina

Industrial Enzymes: Structure, Function and Applications addresses the most important types of industrial enzymes, covering in a balanced manner three interrelated aspects of paramount importance for enzyme performance:

  • three-dimensional protein structure
  • physicochemical and catalytic properties
  • the range of both classical and novel applications
