Cytochrome c and xylanase were adsorbed onto two mesoporous materials, SBA-15 (a pure silicate) and MSE (an organosilicate), with very similar physical properties but differing chemical compositions. A methodical order was developed whereby the influences of surface area, pore size, extent of order, particle size, surface potentials, isoelectric points, pH, and ionic strength on immobilization were explored. In silico studies of cytochrome c and xylanase were conducted before any immobilization… 

Immobilization of feruloyl esterases in mesoporous silica Linking immobilization conditions , microenvironment and material properties to enzyme activity

The aim of the present work was to link the new knowledge obtained on the microenvironment, immobilization conditions and material properties of the mesoporous material to their effects on enzyme activity.

Dynamics of Enzyme Immobilization in Mesoporous Silica Particles

The focus of this thesis is placed on the dynamic behavior of proteins in confining environments which is studied as a scientific challenge for a deeper understanding of the immobilization mechanism

Immobilization of β-glucosidase in fixed bed reactor and evaluation of the enzymatic activity

Adsorption–desorption isotherms at 77 K before and after the adsorption were carried out, concluding that the advertisersorption of β-glucosidase was produced blocking the pore mouth, so that a part of the enzyme penetrates inside and another part stays outside the pores.

Physical and Chemical Lipase Adsorption on SBA‐15: Effect of Different Interactions on Enzyme Loading and Catalytic Performance

Both biocatalysts are also active in a green process for biodiesel production, leading to almost full conversion of sunflower oil and ethanol into the corresponding ethyl esters after about 7 h at 30 °C, atmospheric pressure, and in solvent‐free conditions.
