 Publisher's Summary
 Enzyme biocatalysis is a fastgrowing area in processbiotechnology that has expanded from the traditional fields offoods, detergents, and leather applications to more sophisticateduses in the pharmaceutical and finechemicals sectors andenvironmental management. Conventional applications of industrialenzymes are expected to grow, with major opportunities in thedetergent and animal feed sectors, and new uses in biofuelproduction and human and animal therapy. In order to design more efficient enzyme reactors and evaluateperformance properly, sound mathematical expressions must bedeveloped which consider enzyme kinetics, material balances, andeventual mass transfer limitations. With a focus on problemsolving, each chapter provides abridged coverage of the subject, followed by a number of solved problems illustrating resolutionprocedures and the main concepts underlying them, plussupplementary questions and answers. Based on more than 50 years of teaching experience, ProblemSolving in Enzyme Biocatalysis is a unique reference forstudents of chemical and biochemical engineering, as well asbiochemists and chemists dealing with bioprocesses. Contains: Enzyme properties and applications; enzyme kinetics; enzyme reactor design and operation 146 worked problems andsolutions in enzyme biocatalysis.
