In this study, the silica nanoparticles surface was modified by carboxylic acid with different number of alkyl chain and two different lipases were immobilized on it to increase the glycerolysis activity of the immobilized lipases in organic solvent system. Silica nanoparticles of about 15 nm diameter were grafted with various carboxylic acid modifiers from valeric, caprylic, capric, lauric, stearic and oleic acids. Lipases from Candida antarctica and Candida rugosa were immobilized onto the… CONTINUE READING
