Mechanochemical enzymatic reactions without bulk water have emerged as a low-waste and efficient method to access useful chemicals and to depolymerize biomass components in a single step. This emergent mechanoenzymatic reaction strategy is able to take advantage of the stereospecificity, regio- and stereoselectivity, as well as renewability of enzymes, while avoiding bulk solvents, offering the opportunity to control the direction of the reaction, bypassing reactant solubility issues, and enabling reactions with water-sensitive substrates or products. Enzymes are traditionally used in dilute aqueous solution, which is quite different from their crowded, water-depleted natural environment. This review outlines recent work which demonstrates that enzymes can be equally or even more efficient under mechanochemical conditions, without bulk aqueous or organic solvent.
