Lipase-catalyzed synthesis of partial glyceride


Mucor miehei (IM 20) and Candida antarctica (SP 382) lipases were used for esterification of free fatty acids in the absence of organic solvent or transesterification of fatty acid methyl esters in hexane with isopropylidene glycerols. Acid catalyzed cleavage of the isopropylidene groups resulted in the formation of monoacyl glycerol (MAG) and diacyl… (More)
