Abstract:

Enzymes have been used in non-aqueous media to make the reactions and the following process more efficient and greener. Here, recent progress in enzymatic reactions in supercritical carbon dioxide is reviewed. Hydrolysisesterification, oxidation-reduction and carboxylation are described, including highly enantioselective reactions.

Keywords: lipases, hydrolysis, esterification, enantioselectivity
