Herein we give a brief account of the efforts our group made in recent years to discover novel enzymes and utilize them by bioprocess engineering techniques for stereoselective synthesis of various enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals with high value in a greener manner. Included are discussions on oxidoreductases, expoxide hydrolases and glucosidases in whole cells or isolated form from microorganisms or plants.
