The formation of behenic acid monolayers at the air/water interface has been studied in the presence of glucose oxidase. When the enzyme is present in the subphase, spreading of behenic acid at the air/water interface leads to the formation of a mixed film of glucose oxidase and behenic acid. The pressure–area isotherms performed with various concentrations of the enzyme in the subphase showed the incorporation of the enzyme in the monolayer. The dynamics of the mixed films was studied by… CONTINUE READING
