The focus of this thesis is to identify improvements of oxidoreductase reactions to bring them to preparative scale. Three approaches were studied: (1) photoregeneration of oxidised nicotinamide cofactors with LEDs as light source and flavins, (2) direct regeneration of Old Yellow Enzymes with light or metals, (3) heme-thiolate enzyme peroxygenases in neat substrate conditions.
Flavins are the main actors of the first two approaches. These redox cofactors have been chosen for their photocatalytic properties as a photosensitiser and as a cofactor in the so-called flavoproteins.
