The Viability of Immobilized Enzyme as a Biocatalyst
City:Thorold, ON, St.Catharines , ON
School:Sir Winston Churchill
Abstract:Due to their efficiency and benign nature, enzymes have been introduced into various industrial processes as a biocatalyst. If enzymes can retain their catalytic abilities after being immobilized onto solid supports, they can be filtered and reused for numerous reaction cycles. This technique proves to have significant environmental and industrial advantages. Lipase from Candida rugosa was immobilized onto four different solid supports and tested.
