This meeting will review the current status of microbial halogenation and aims to stimulate discussion towards new technologies and potential applications in this area.
Selective halogenation is widely used for tuning the properties of high value bio-actives, particularly in the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals sectors. In that context halogenation is achieved entirely by chemical methods, and such processes present environmental challenges. For these reasons biocatalytic methods for halogenation, although rare, are attractive.
