Enzyme immobilization has been extensively explored by chemical/biochemical/ biotechnology personnel for research and industrial uses. The ability to improve the stability and reusability of enzymes has driven this technique to be employed in a plethora of applications in these recent decades. Enzyme Immobilization for Bioprocessing offers up-to-date reviews on the current strategies and state of the art support systems involved in various bioprocesses. The highlights of this book include:
1) The latest enzyme immobilization methods and strategies–entrapment, encapsulation, adsorption and cross-linking.
2) Mechanisms and interactions involved between enzyme and support.
3) Kinetics and performance of immobilized enzyme in bench-top stirred reactor.
4) Emerging support materials for effective immobilization, namely, smart polymer, silica, magnetic nanoparticles, graphene oxide and hollow fiber membrane.
Enzyme Immobilization for Bioprocessing also features the most recent applications of immobilized enzymes, including fingerprint visualizations.
