Cellulase from Trichoderma reesei (Celluclast 1.5 L, Novozyme) was immobilized by sol-gel encapsulation, using binary or ternary mixtures of tetramethoxysilane (TMOS) with alkyl- or aryl-substituted trimethoxysilanes as precursors. Optimization of immobilization conditions resulted in 92 % recovery of total enzymatic activity in the best immobilized… CONTINUE READING
