2020 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom
Nicholas J. Turner mainly focuses on Organic chemistry, Biocatalysis, Stereochemistry, Enzyme and Enantioselective synthesis. His Biocatalysis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Oxidation reduction, Desymmetrization, Imine, Combinatorial chemistry and Stereoselectivity. His work carried out in the field of Stereochemistry brings together such families of science as Amino acid, Reductase, Stereoisomerism, Active site and Directed evolution.
His Enzyme research is included under the broader classification of Biochemistry. His Enantioselective synthesis research integrates issues from Nanotechnology, Fine chemical, Product inhibition and Chemical synthesis. His work in the fields of Kinetic resolution overlaps with other areas such as Whole cell.
Nicholas J. Turner mainly investigates Organic chemistry, Stereochemistry, Biocatalysis, Enzyme and Catalysis. His Organic chemistry study is mostly concerned with Amine gas treating, Hydrolysis, Enantiomeric excess, Organic synthesis and Yield. Nicholas J. Turner interconnects Amino acid, Regioselectivity, Enantioselective synthesis, Active site and Substrate in the investigation of issues within Stereochemistry.
His research integrates issues of Amination, Biochemical engineering, Imine, Combinatorial chemistry and Stereoselectivity in his study of Biocatalysis. The Imine study combines topics in areas such as Reductive amination and Reductase. Enzyme is a subfield of Biochemistry that Nicholas J. Turner explores.
Nicholas J. Turner mainly focuses on Biocatalysis, Combinatorial chemistry, Enzyme, Catalysis and Organic chemistry. Nicholas J. Turner has researched Biocatalysis in several fields, including Amination, Green chemistry, Biochemical engineering, Reductive amination and Protein engineering. His Combinatorial chemistry research includes themes of Regioselectivity, Imine, Active site, Monoamine oxidase and Amine gas treating.
His Enzyme study typically links adjacent topics like Stereochemistry. His Catalysis research incorporates elements of Galactose oxidase, Click chemistry and Copper. He regularly ties together related areas like Alcohol oxidase in his Organic chemistry studies.
His main research concerns Biocatalysis, Organic chemistry, Catalysis, Biochemical engineering and Imine. His study in Biocatalysis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Kinetic resolution, Enantioselective synthesis, Biotransformation, Enzyme and Stereochemistry. His studies in Stereochemistry integrate themes in fields like Monooxygenase and Hydroxylation.
His work on Organic chemistry is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Alcohol oxidase. His Catalysis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nanoparticle and Shewanella oneidensis. His work deals with themes such as Reductive amination, Combinatorial chemistry, Reductase and Amine gas treating, which intersect with Imine.
