#493 - Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Biomolecular Catalysis II (22B09)
Recent advances in nano-scale science and technology are fueling a revolutionary development in biocatalysis. The focus of this session is to reflect the latest advances in the development of nanobiocatalysts and the use of that type of catalysts for the construction of novel reactors, sensors, self-assemblies and other devices. Topics to be covered will include, but are not limited to: Biocatalyst development via the use of nano-structured materials; Biocatalytic reaction engineering in micro reactors, assemblies or other devices; Application of novel nanobiocatalysts for enzymatic bioprocessing for chemical production, biodegradation, biochemical separation/purification and fuel processing; and Studies of protein structure-function relationships relevant to biocatalysis, molecular recognition, and stability.
