What Industrial Applications Are There for MeSe?

Many expensive and/or toxic and/or otherwise hazardous industrial chemical catalysts will be replaced by mechanomerically-selected enzymes.

Such enzymes will catalyze many reactions at lower temperatures and pressures than at present, lowering energy use and cost, and many others in water rather than more expensive and/or toxic and/or otherwise hazardous solvents.

Such catalysis due to enzymatic specificity will furthermore reduce side-reactions and increase the efficiency and economy of such reactions.

And it will also allow new reactions to be developed and run as well, such as higher-order ones involving greater numbers of reactants at a time.
