The Springer Handbook of Enzymes provides concise data on some 5,000 enzymes sufficiently well characterized - and here is the second, updated edition. Their application in analytical, synthetic and biotechnology processes as well as in food industry, and for medicinal treatments is added. Data sheets are arranged in their EC-Number sequence. The new edition reflects considerable progress in enzymology: the total material has more than doubled, and the complete 2nd edition consists of 39 volumes plus Synonym Index. Starting in 2009, all newly classified enzymes are treated in Supplement Volumes.

ChemBioChem 3/2002: Comparing Volume 2 of the first edition with Volume 1 of the second edition one rapidly notices that an incredible amount of work was spent on updating the different datafields.
The handbook is definitely worth buying, since it is probably the best reference manual available to date and is, therefore, an improtant acquisition for libraries. (W. Kroutil, University of Graz)
