Summary

Novel surfactant-coated enzymes immobilized in poly(ethylene glycol) microcapsules have been developed for the re-use of an oil-soluble enzyme in organic media. The esterification rate of the surfactant-coated lipase immobilized in the microcapsules was thirty times that of the powder lipase. More than 90% of the enzymatic activity of the capsulated lipases has been maintained after recycling six times.
