Our partner InnoSyn have published further details on this valuable technology PRODUCTION OF DICLOFENAC METABOLITES BY APPLYING CYTOCHROME P450 TECHNOLOGY http://www.teknoscienze.com/tks_article/production-of-diclofenac-metabolites-by-applying-cytochrome-p450-technology/ Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases can catalyze highly regio- and stereo-selective oxidations of many organic compounds. Nevertheless, the scale-up of such biooxidations remains challenging due to the often-low activity, level of expression and stability of P450…

A lecture was given by Prof. M.W. Fraaije to demonstrate the potential of flavin-containing enzymes for industrial applications to the Gratama Workshop in Groningen to promote collaboration on research in chemistry between Netherlands and Japan)
The thermophilic fungus Thermothelomyces thermophila is currently being investigated by a team of Dutch and Italian researchers in the frame of the ROBOX project that is particularly devoted on the development of possibly robust methods for the oxidation of industrially relevant compounds. One of the notoriously difficult reactions to be performed in chemical synthesis is…
Our partner DTU will organize a workshop on Process Development for Biooxidations on April 18-20.
MIB A-Level Open Day 2017
UNIMAN Research Institute hosts 175 A-Level Students from across Greater Manchester and uses ROBOX

ROBOX has released a new video
Reductive amination is one of the most important methods for the synthesis of chiral amines. The paper from ROBOX partner UNIMAN “A reductive aminase from Aspergillus oryzae” is attracting attention. This enzyme can be applied to ROBOX alcohol and ketone products to create cascade reactions of interest for industry.
