Notably, enzymes suitable for catalyzing the reactions at very low or high pH and also at elevated temperature exceeding 80  C have been found. A typical natural source of such types of enzymes is the group of so-called extremophilic microorganisms. For example, thermophilic microbial strains from hot springs are an interesting source of enzymes that can be impressively active at high temperatures. A further important criteria when setting up an organic synthesis with (bio-) catalysts is the choice of reaction medium.

Typical transformations include the hydrolysis of esters and amides, and their reverse reactions, namely esterification and amidation. 3 gives an overview of selected examples of hydrolase-catalyzed (stereoselective) processes. Often, hydrolases are used in resolution processes since many acids and functionalized derivatives thereof are easily accessible in racemic form by means of “standard chemical methods”. C. 3 Overview of selected reactions catalyzed by enzymes from EC 3 (hydrolases). 2 Potential of Enzymes as Catalysts in Organic Synthesis: Enzyme Reactions Overview stereoselective process type of interest are desymmetrization reactions, for example, of prochiral or meso-type diesters.

He joined Caltech as a postdoc in 1998 where he worked until 2000 in the group of Prof. H. Arnold on directed evolution of enzymes. Oliver May has authored more than 40 scientific contributions in Journals and Books and more than 15 patent applications. He and his team was awarded several research & innovation awards on hydantoinase technology, whole-cell processes, recombinant pig liver esterase in its application for production of a pharma intermediate and the latest on advanced yeasts for production of bioethanol from cellulosic feedstocks.
