Bioacatalysis has increasingly become the technology of choice to introduce chirality in fine-chemical processes. Biocatalysis sculpts chemical precursors into the precise molecular shapes that are the heart of many pharmaceuticals. In reviewing how biocatalysis can be applied to improve Chiral synthesis for pharmaceutical it becomes clear that there will be many opportunities using a simple enzyme system by that many of the more useful applications will require the whole cell because of the requirement for cofactors.
