"""Description:""The last two decades have seen an emergence in the use of enzymes as catalysts for polymer synthesis. As a result of the unique synthetic machinery of biocatalysts, new polymers have been developed and ""old"" polymers have been generated using novel synthetic strategies. This book contains seven chapters that cover in great deatail the use of enzymes to synthesize a range of polymers. It also makes use of a large number of examples to summarize the salient features of the enzymatic reactions and resulting polymeric properties. For this reason, this book will be of interest to both expert and nonexpert readers.""from: J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2006, 128, 10633"""
