1. “Biotransformations” by K Faber

“Biotransformations” Book Review: The book focuses on the new enzymes which show great synthetic potential. It also discusses hydrolases such as proteases, esterases and lipases. Contains a number of biocatalysts, substrate tolerance of numerous biocatalysts, chiral bioactive agents in enantiopure form and potential of applying natural catalysts to transform non-natural organic compounds. Important topics included are elucidation of biochemical pathways, enzyme mechanisms and transformation of non-natural organic compounds.

2. “Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry: A Textbook” by Kurt Faber

“Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry: A Textbook” Book Review: Textbook on biocatalysis, provides a basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in modern organic chemistry. The book contains basic introduction into the use of biocatalysts―principles of stereoselective transformations, enzyme properties and kinetics―the different types of reactions. Special techniques, such as the use of enzymes in organic solvents, immobilization techniques, artificial enzymes and the design of cascade-reactions are also discussed. It also has uses of enzymes in industrial biotransformations with practical examples.

3. “An Introduction to Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry (Biochemical and Medicinal Chemistry Series)” by James Hanson

“An Introduction to Biotransformations in Organic Chemistry (Biochemical and Medicinal Chemistry Series)” Book Review: It is suitable as a course text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry and the biomedical sciences. The uses of both isolated enzymes and whole organisms in biotransformations are given in the book. In addition to enzymatic and microbial methods, the biotransformation of drugs in humans are also discussed. Important topics such as biotransformations as alternatives to purely chemical synthetic routes or complimentary manner to chemical reagents in a multi-step organic synthesis are also covered.
