Sammanfattning : Polymeric materials are found in virtually all areas of daily life; they are found in everything from packages keeping our food safe to the buildings where we spend our days, and the production is a worldwide industry. Although polymeric materials play a big part in sustainable solution’s, a lot can be done to develop more environmental methods for producing them. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Biocatalysis is the branch of science at the intersection between chemistry and biology and specifcally dedicated to the application of natural evolvable catalysts, i.e. enzymes, in human-designed chemical processes. Among the array of promising biocatalysts, transaminases (EC 2. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The search for alternatives to oil-based monomers has sparked interest for scientists to focus on the use of renewable resources for energy production, for the synthesis of polymeric materials and in other areas. With the use of renewable resources, scientists face new challenges to first isolate interesting molecules and then to process them. LÄS MER
4. Rational engineering of esterases for improved amidase specificity in amide synthesis and hydrolysis
Sammanfattning : Biocatalysis is an ever evolving field that uses enzymes or microorganisms for chemical synthesis. By utilizing enzymes that generally have evolved for specific reactions under mild conditions and temperatures, biocatalysis can be a more environmentally friendly option compared to traditional chemistry.

5. Peptidomimetic Enzyme Inhibitors : Targeting M. tuberculosis Ribonucleotide Reductase and Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the design and synthesis of inhibitors targeting Mycobacterium tuberculosis ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease; enzymes that have been identified as potential drug targets for the treatment of tuberculosis and hepatitis C, respectively. Small peptides have been recognized as inhibitors of these enzymes. LÄS MER
