Laccases are ideal green catalyst. There is an increased interest in the use of laccases to replace conventional chemical processes in the forest, textile and pharmaceutical sectors. These enzymes have applications in several other sectors such as the food, cosmetics, paint, organic synthesis and bioremediation. Laccases have also a place in the production of bioethanol from lignocellulose materials.These enzymes are involved in the degradation of xenobiotic compounds and dyes, soil bioremediation and removal of toxic pollutants. This e-book covers the occurrence, mode of action, production, immobilization and potential applications of laccases in different industries and in the nanobiotechnology area.
