Title: Immobilization of Enzymes and Cells
Publisher: Humana Press
Book Condition: New
Book Type: Hardcover
Hardcover. 450 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.1in. x 1.2in.The second edition of Immobilization of Enzymes and Cells serves as an update as well as a compliment to the first edition. This volume now includes simple protocols for the immobilization of enzymes and cells that could be useful for application at industrial scale, novel protocols for immobilization in the future, and new chemical reactors able to overcome the limitations of a number of immobilized derivatives.

Synopsis: Enzymes and whole cells are able to catalyze the most complex chemical processes under the most benign experimental and environmental conditions. In this way, enzymes and cells could be excellent catalysts for a much more sustainable chemical industry. However, enzymes and cells also have some limitations for nonbiological applications: fine chemistry, food chemistry, analysis, therapeutics, and so on. Enzymes and cells may be unstable, difficult to handle under nonconventional conditions, poorly selective toward synthetic substrates, and so forth. From this point of view, the transformation-from the laboratory to industry-of chemical processes catalyzed by enzymes and cells may be one of the most complex and exciting goals in biotechnology. For many industrial applications, enzymes and cells have to be immobilized, via very simple and cost-effective protocols, in order to be re-used over very long periods of time. From this point of view, immobilization, simplicity, and stabilization have to be strongly related concepts. Over the last 30 years, a number of protocols for the immobilization of cells and enzymes have been reported in scientific literature. However, only very few protocols are simple and useful enough to greatly improve the functional properties of enzymes and cells, activity, stability, selectivity, and related properties.
"Many well-known authors from research laboratories worldwide have contributed to this successful volume. . .this book provides a basic reference tool for all those who will need to immobilize biological materials in their work-not only for the beginner in the field, but also for experienced researchers."-Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology
