Biocatalysis is increasing in popularity compared to chemical approaches
to produce the most diverse chemical components. This
popularity is often the consequence of the lower environmental impact
and/or of the selectivity of biocatalysts. Despite this, to compete
with chemical processes, biocatalysts must fulfill many requirements.
Therefore, there is a strong demand for stable, fast, and easy to produce
biocatalysts. The research described in this thesis focused on the
exploration of new or engineered redox enzymes that can be used for
selective alcohol oxidations or ketone reductions.
