Industrial benefits abound from enzymatic cascades of catalytic reactions inspired by nature

Chemical synthesis is at the core of processes and products in industries from pharmaceuticals to polymers to sensors and energy. As the world turns to more sustainable synthetic methods, biocatalysts have claimed the spotlight. Heterogeneous biocatalysis involves the use of enzymes (protein catalysts) immobilised on solid supports. The confinement of enzymes in solid materials is inspired by the spatial organisation and compartmentalisation of metabolic pathways in cells. Now, INTERfaces is extending this concept to cascades of heterogeneous biocatalytic reactions. Building on the momentum provided by early stage researchers, the team plans to engineer cascades starting with two biobased monomers leading to the creation of products of industrial relevance. The most promising will be upscaled for commercial implementation.
