Biocatalysis in Purolite® | A Complete Story
Immobilized enzymes in biocatalysis are powerful tools to optimise processes in both operative and economic terms. In addition to a more convenient method of handling enzyme preparations, the main benefits of immobilized enzymes are easy separation/re-use of the enzyme from the product, better downstream processing, and their use in continuous processes (fixed or expanded-bed columns) or in batch processes (stirred-tank configurations). The immobilization on a rigid structure increases the biocatalyst stability towards organic solvents and temperature.
Presently, immobilized enzymes produce important pharmaceuticals and food ingredients and additives ...
