ACIB Long Night of Science

Our partners ACIB and TUG on Friday April 13, 2018 took part in the free to enter eighth Long Night of Research. The world of science and research was presented using current projects, new findings and technologies to present research science in an exciting, understandable and entertaining way. ACIB Long Night of Research One highlight…

Applied Biobased Materials Conference (ABC) 2018

ROBOX to have a presence at Applied Biobased Materials Conference (ABC) 2018 hosted by the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM). This will describe some of our latest developments in using biocatalysis to synthesize materials suitable for innovations.

Biotechnology finds new antibiotic

Dr Sean Brady’s team at New York’s Rockefeller University has been busy unearthing antibiotics using a gene sequencing technique to analyse more than 1,000 soil samples taken from across the US and and they discovered malacidins. Their discovery represents the first discovery of a new class of antibiotic since the discovery of teixobactin in 2015…


High performing immobilized Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase and glucose dehydrogenase for the synthesis of ε-caprolactone derivative

This paper describes co-immobilized biocatalyst enzymes that allows cofactor regeneration and higher yields.

“Design of Artificial Alcohol Oxidases: Alcohol Dehydrogenase–NADPH Oxidase Fusions for Continuous Oxidations”

Our latest publication from RUG/UP has applied cumulative alanine mutagenesis approach to cyclohexanone monooxygenase from Thermocrispum municipale, a flavin-dependent Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase to demonstrate “Side-Chain Pruning Has Limited Impact on Substrate Preference in a Promiscuous Enzyme”

Our partner RUG have published a paper on how ROBOX catalysts can be used to add value to glycerol – a byproduct of biodiesel production that is treated as waste.
“Structure-based engineering of Phanerochaete chrysosporium alcohol oxidase for enhanced oxidative power towards glycerol”

7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress

The 7th EuCheMS Chemistry conference, 26-30 August 2018 is in Liverpool, UK. The conference has excellent keynote speakers, and there is still time for submitting abstracts for oral and poster presentations (deadline February 19). See Although the conference covers all aspects of catalysis there is a strong biocatalysis lineup. Biological catalysis Convenor: Dick Janssen…
