Enzymatic Synthesis Of Polyesters

Many studies concerning syntheses of aliphatic polyesters by fermentation and chemical processes have been made in viewpoint of biodegradable materials.89 Recently, another approach to synthesis of biodegradable polyesters has been developed by polymerization using lipase as catalyst.10-15 It is generally accepted that an enzymatic reaction is virtually reversible, and hence, the equilibrium can be controlled by appropriately selecting the reaction conditions. Based on this concept, many of the hydrolases, which are enzymes catalyzing a bond-cleavage
