Interactions between soluble enzymes and interfaces of organic solvent drops or gas bubbles have a very negative effect on the operational stability of the soluble enzymes. In this study, the formation of a hydrophilic shell around the enzyme has been attempted using dextran-aldehyde which would prevent the interaction between enzyme and hydrophobic interfaces with minimal modification of the enzyme surface. After optimizing the size of the dextran (that was found to play a critical role… CONTINUE READING
