Special issue on Bioconversion, Biocatalysis and Renewable Energy

Bioconversion technology is of today’s important challenges for alternative and renewable energy with carbon and biomass, waste organic conversion and waste management solutions. In addition, Many nano-structured materials, such as mesoporous media, nanoparticles, nanofibers, and nanotubes, have been demonstrated as efficient hosts of enzyme immobilization. It is evident that, when nanostructure of conductive materials are used, the large surface area of these nanomaterials can increase the enzyme loading, facilitate reaction kinetics and consequently lead to efficient biocatalysis applications. For instance, nanostuctured biocatalysts will play a critical role in overcoming the major obstacles in the development of powerful biofuel cells. In such context, the special issue focus on  this aspect of nano-biotechnology.

In this special issue, we are going to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore  Bioconversion, Biocatalysis and Renewable Energy. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

l  Enzyme immobilization in nanostructured materials (polymers, glasses, nano-, micro-particles…)

l  Bioconversion

l  Renewable energy

l  Biotransformation

l  Biomass conversion

l  CO2 storage

l  Chemo-enzymatic integration in microfluidic systems

l  Design and optimisation of more effective biocatalytic oxidation processes

l  Membrane bioreactors for improved bioconversion

l  Structural and bioinformatics tools for the rapid screening of protein-substrate interactions 

l  Host cell engineering for improved bioconversion performance  

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at
