Enzymatic Solutions to Synthetic Challenges
The design of catalysts to more efficiently prepare molecules of interest is a defining feature of modern organic chemistry. Despite tremendous advances, there are still challenges that classical approaches have difficulty addressing. This talk will explore how metalloenzymes and artificial metalloenzymes can provide solutions to these challenges.
