Abstract

Enzymes are biological catalysts that are currently used for biocatalysis, biofuel synthesis and biological fuel cell production, for biosensors, as well as as active constituents of surfaces with antifouling and decontamination properties. This review is focused on recent literature covering enzyme-based technologies with emphasis on enzymes as preferred catalysts that provide environmentally friendly, inexpensive and easy to use alternatives to existing decontamination technologies against a wide variety of pathogens, from bacteria to spores.
