Macroporous Poly(GMA-co-EGDMA) for Enzyme Stabilization
- 1.9k Downloads
One of the most used procedures for enzyme stabilization is immobilization. Although immobilization on solid supports has been pursued since the 1950s, there are no general rules for selecting the best support for a giving application. A macroporous copolymer of ethylene glycol dimethacrylate and glycidyl methacrylate is a carrier consisting of macroporous beads for immobilizing enzymes of industrial potential for the production of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

We wish to thank Professor Slobodan M. Jovanović for the development and preparation of this new type of support for enzyme immobilization and stabilization as well as Professor Ratko M. Jankov for his helpful comments and information. This work was supported by the Ministry of Science of Serbia (projects no. 142020 and no. TP-20064).
