This chapter describes the main classes of biotransformations of arenes that have been reported. It is aimed at an audience of nonspecialists, and the emphasis is on biocatalytic methodology that can be employed by synthetic chemists at large. Transformations using various enzymes are described, including arene dioxygenases, arene monooxygenases, tyrosinases, cytochromes P450, laccases, C-methyltransferases, prenyltransferases, (de)carboxylases, squalene hopene cyclases, Pictet–Spenglerases, and halogenases.
