Enzymatic synthesis of polyesters
"The use of enzymes as catalysts is gaining widespread use due to the need to move into green chemistry approaches. This has been fostered also by the discovery that enzymes can function in novel environments such as environmental extremes and organic solvents. In this work, soybean oil was used as the raw material to synthesize a dicorboxylic acid, with was then polymerized to ge polyester."--Abstract, page iii.
