Optimization of enzymatic production of biodiesel from castor oil in organic solvent medium
We studied the production of fatty acid ethyl esters from castor oil using n-hexane as solvent and two commercial lipases, Novozym 435 and Lipozyme IM, as catalysts. For this purpose, a TaguchiExpand
Response surface method to optimize the production and characterization of lipase from Penicillium verrucosum in solid-state fermentation
Current studies about lipase production by solid-state fermentation involve the use of agro-industrial residues towards developing cost-effective systems directed to large-scale commercialization ofExpand
Optimization of mono and diacylglycerols production from enzymatic glycerolysis in solvent-free systems
This work reports solvent-free enzymatic glycerolysis of olive oil with an immobilized lipase (Novozym 435) using Tween 40, Tween 65, Tween 80, Tween 85, Triton X-100, and soy lecithin asExpand
Optimization of alkaline transesterification of soybean oil and castor oil for biodiesel production
This article reports experimental data on the production of fatty acid ethyl esters from refined and degummed soybean oil and castor oil using NaOH as catalyst. The variables investigated wereExpand
Screening of Pectinase-Producing Microorganisms with Polygalacturonase Activity
The aim of this work was to perform the screening of microorganisms, previously isolated from samples of agro-industrial waste and belonging to the culture collection of our laboratory, able toExpand
Assessment of process variables on 2-ethylhexyl palmitate production using Novozym 435 as catalyst in a solvent-free system
This work reports the optimization of 2-ethylhexyl palmitate production by esterification reaction in a solvent-free system using a commercial lipase as catalyst. For this, a sequential strategy wasExpand
Microbial Oxidation of (-)-α-pinene to Verbenol Production by Newly Isolated Strains
Verbenol is a bicyclicbicycle secondary allylic alcohol, with pronounced camphor and mint flavor notes, mainly used as food flavoring. This compound is also used to control harmful insects, and henceExpand
Effect of temperature, moisture, and carbon supplementation on lipase production by solid-state fermentation of soy cake by Penicillium simplicissimum
The production of lipases by Penicillium simplicissimum using solid-state fermentation and soy cake as substrate was investigated. The effects of temperature, cake moisture, and carbonExpand
Inulinase production by Kluyveromyces marxianus NRRL Y-7571 using solid state fermentation
Inulinase is an enzyme relevant to fructose production by enzymatic hydrolysis of inulin. This enzyme is also applied in the production of fructo-oligosaccharides that may be used as a new foodExpand
