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 ...
