Nanomaterials Immobilized Cellulolytic Enzymes and their Industrial Applications : A Literature Review

  title={Nanomaterials Immobilized Cellulolytic Enzymes and their Industrial Applications : A Literature Review},
  author={Qayyum Husain},
The immobilization of cellulolytic enzymes via nanosupport minimizes the problem of steric hindrances between enzyme and carrier, as it has been frequently observed in case of enzymes immobilized on the surface of bulk supports. Cellulolytic enzymes immobilized on the surface of nanomaterials or entrapped inside polymeric nanospheres showed high catalytic efficiency and yield of immobilization. Nanomaterials bound cellulolytic enzymes were found significantly more stable against heat, pH… Expand
