Biotransformations and Bioconversions in New Zealand: Past Endeavours and Future Potential

by Anne M Collins and Max J Kennedy, Industrial Research Limited, PO Box 31-310, Lower Hutt, New Zealand (tel: +64 4 569 0000, fax: +64 4 569 0132, email: m.kennedy@irl.cri.nz)

The area of biocatalysis which was of only limited interest 20-30 years ago, has now become a highly active area of research in chemistry. This paper describes the advantages of biotransformation processes over traditional chemistry, the technology available to overcome some of the inherent problems and examples of some commercially successful processes. Biocatalysis is an under exploited area in New Zealand and areas of biotransformation research have been suggested that could utilise some of New Zealand's natural resources.
