    • What the scientific literature is missing so far: An excellent introduction to the world of enzymes focusing (over 60%) on their practical use in industry.

    •  As enzymes become commercially important tools, they will be increasingly important to people who start a career in industry and get a quite poor training on this interdisciplinary topic in study.

    • The present volume connects study with the entangled industrial everyday-life.

    • Didactic, systematic, repetitive structure within the industrial applications part. High- potential, emerging topic written by experienced authors, coming from both industry and academia.

    Aims and Scope

    Tiny protein structures with a huge effect! Enzymes are an integral part in a myriad of industrial products without which modern life would be unthinkable: Enzymes improve dairy products or give bread the right crumb structure and mouth feel. Thanks to enzymes stone-washed jeans have never seen a stone during production. Enzymes are present in almost every detergent package catalyzing the removal of stains from our clothes. They find wide use in the catalysis of synthetic organic reactions, in the very hip production of bio-ethanol, in pulp and paper and animal feed industries, the bulk production of e.g. glucose and fructose, are used in clinical diagnosis and therapy, in genetic engineering – to mention only a few … The authors provide an introduction to this fascinating world of molecular machines and connect study with industrial everyday-life.
