  • A novel polyurethane (PU) support with and without copper oxide nanoparticles (nCuO) was employed for immobilization of two chitinolytic enzymes, chitinase and N-acetyl β glucosaminidase (NAGase) to yield PU/nCuO/chitinase/NAGase and PU/chitinase/NAGase conjugates respectively. The surface morphologies, topologies and bonded interactions between different components of the immobilized enzyme conjugates were characterized using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM… CONTINUE READING
