Biocatalysis

 

the acceleration by enzymes of chemical reactions in living organisms. Biocatalysis is a process that is highly efficient and specific, and—unlike chemical catalysis—it takes place under “mild” conditions—that is, those that are natural to the living organism (temperature, pressure, reaction of the environment, and so on).
