Welcome to the ERUDESP project website!
The project “Development of Electrochemical Reactors Using Dehydrogenases for Enantiopure Synthon Preparations” is being funded by the European Commission in the context of the 7th Framework Programme (thematic area Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new production technologies - NMP).
The project runs from 1 July 2008 to 30 June 2011.
The main objective is the waste-free production of enantiopure fine chemicals. Using specific enzymes, the Dehydrogenases, the project will develop an innovative electrochemical reactor, where all catalytically active substances are immobilised with spacers or in special surface layers so that, ideally, the end-product will not have to be purified.
The resulting fine chemicals can then be used as building blocks for products of the pharmaceutical and the agrochemical industry.
