AquaCat

Tailor made lipases for synthetic catalysis in biphasic media: From poly (lactone) applications towards novel sugar esters)

Dr. Pranee Inprakhon, lecturer of Mahidol University, Bangkok Thailand, has been awarded a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship (IIF) from the European Union FP7 to work on a project entitled “AquaCat –Tailor made lipases for synthetic catalysis in biphasic media: From poly(lactone) applications towards novel sugars esters” at BioCat in Straubing. The project will focus on the development of innovative, greener process using renewable resources for synthesis of products of commercial interest.
