The research of the biocatalytic synthesis group (PI Jan von Langermann) at the University of Rostock focuses on the direct integration of separation techniques into biocatalytic processes. With this concept we aim to overcome common limitations in biocatalytic processes such as undesired side reactions, inhibitions and thermodynamically unfavorable reaction equilibria.
Special emphasis is placed on the use of crystallization, adsorption and compartmentalization solutions, which are applied for a selective isolation of the desired products from the reaction solution. Such in-situ product removal techniques (ISPR) selectively extract a desired product from a biocatalytic reaction, thereby increasing process productivity and selectivity.
