Organic synthesis. Stereoselective synthesis of biologically active compounds such as natural products, APIs, flavours and fragrances. In this context, our synthetic approaches take advantage of both classical methods of organic synthesis and biocatalytic procedures involving enzymes or whole-cells processes.
