An overview of technologies for immobilization of enzymes and surface analysis techniques for immobilized enzymes
Characterization technologies at the nanoscale level to study enzymes immobilized on surfaces are crucial to obtain valuable qualitative and quantitative information, including morphological visualization of the immobilized enzymes, to assess efficacy of an immobilization technique and development of future enzyme immobilization strategies.

Oil Palm (Elaeis guineensis) Biomass in Malaysia: The Present and Future Prospects
Oil palm industry is the largest contributor of biomass in Malaysia. Oil palm biomass are constantly generated in large quantities annually with a small fraction being converted into value addedExpand
Halophiles: biology, adaptation, and their role in decontamination of hypersaline environments
This review highlights the various strategies adopted by halophiles to compensate for their saline surroundings and includes descriptions of recent studies that have used halotolerant dehalogenase-producing microbes for bioremediation of environments contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons. Expand
Evaluation of Trichoderma isolates as potential biological control agent against soybean charcoal rot disease caused by Macrophomina phaseolina
T12 isolate was mostly effective in field experiments, observable in the attained minimum plant disease indices both in the soil incorporation and seed inoculation treatments, in comparison to isolates T2 and T10. Expand
Raw oil palm frond leaves as cost-effective substrate for cellulase and xylanase productions by Trichoderma asperellum UC1 under solid-state fermentation.
It appeared that the unique polymeric structure of raw OPFL favored cellulases and xylanase productions, and the enzyme complex that comprised of four endo-β-1,4-xylanases and endoglucanases showed thermophilic and acidophilic characteristics at 50-60 °C and pH 3.0. Expand
Application of Box-Behnken design for ultrasound-assisted extraction and recycling preparative HPLC for isolation of anthraquinones from Cassia singueana.
The extraction protocol described here is suitable for large-scale extraction of anthraquinones from plant extracts and closely agreed to the predicted yield. Expand
Optimization studies on cellulase and xylanase production by Rhizopus oryzae UC2 using raw oil palm frond leaves as substrate under solid state fermentation
Abstract Increasing energy demands call for sustainable alternative sources. Solid state fermentation (SSF) of raw oil palm frond leaves (OPFL) as the substrate to produce extracellular cellulasesExpand
Simple adsorption of Candida rugosa lipase onto multi-walled carbon nanotubes for sustainable production of the flavor ester geranyl propionate
In this study, geranyl propionate was enzymatically synthesized from geraniol and propionic acid using Candida rugosa lipase immobilized on acid functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes. TheExpand
Enzymatic esterification of eugenol and benzoic acid by a novel chitosan-chitin nanowhiskers supported Rhizomucor miehei lipase: Process optimization and kinetic assessments.
A Box-Behnken design (BBD) optimization process to synthesize eugenyl benzoate by esterification of eugenol and benzoic acid catalyzed by the chitosan-chitin nanowhiskers supported Rhizomucor miehei lipase (RML-CS/CNWs) overcomes the well-known drawbacks of the chemical route in favor of a more sustainable reaction process.
